Dispelling any feelings of mid-week blues, Tudor launched the its iconic  Master Chronometer certified Black Bay Ceramic in a Visa Cash App RB livery allowing you to match with team drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda behind the wheel. This all new team exclusive launch writes a new chapter in Tudor’s motorsport history as it partners with the new Visa Cash App RB Formula One team. 

TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic Blue

Tudor’s association with the motor racetrack has been a long and glorious one that began in the late 60’s and culminates into a brand new model which accurately depicts the thrill and excitement that sport offers. Tested by the Federal Institute of Metrology or METAS, the Black Bay Ceramic is the epitome of watchmaking innovation and high-tech aesthetic language. Master Chronometer certification is one of the industry's most demanding standards in terms of chronometry and resistance to magnetic fields. Its matt black ceramic elements and black Manufacture Calibre accentuate this model’s outstanding performance. Now offered in a Visa Cash App RB livery, with a blue dial and matching strap stitching, the same configuration the team has been wearing this season has ensured that you too can experience the exhilaration of the sport. 

The Manufacture Calibre MT5602-1U, which powers the Black Bay Ceramic illustrates the technical development process signature of Tudor, drawing on adaptable movement architecture capable of integrating new functions rather than resorting to additional modules. A minor detail for some, but a must for watchmaking purists. Displaying hour, minute and second functions, it offers the general look and feel of Tudor Manufacture Calibres with dedicated sun laser design and bears the Master Chronometer mention on its bridges, emphasising its distinctive performance. Its rotor is fashioned in tungsten monobloc and is openworked. It also features the distinctive laser radial grooving with sand-blasted details. Its bridges and mainplate have alternate sand-blasted and polished surfaces and laser decorations.

Aesthetically, the Tudor Black Bay Ceramic “Blue” combines contemporary, high-tech details with subtle references to its significant heritage. The engraved graduations in matching tones offer a complementary additional matt detail, which responds subtly to changes in light. A hybrid black leather and rubber strap, with a "Snowflake" motif on the inside, blue stitching and a black PVD-coated stainless steel folding clasp, as well as a complimentary black fabric strap with blue band, completes the look of this model.

The iconic Black Bay Ceramic might be neo-vintage in conception, yet its manufacturing techniques, reliability, robustness and the quality of its finishes are consistent with today's more rigorous requirements beautifully embodying the essence of Tudor’s manufacturing prowess.
