BLACK BAY CHRONO DARK
Tudor is taking full advantage of the Rugby World Cup which is currently taking place in Japan to launch a chronograph in the color of the famous New Zealand’s team jersey.
As partner of New Zealand’s national rugby team, Tudor is proposing to rugby fans a limited edition of its Black Bay Chrono model completely decked out in the renowned color of the All Blacks. The 41 mm steel case is finished with a black PVD-treated coating (Physical Vapor Deposition) and a satin-brushed finish. This color is also used on the dial, the pushers, the crown and on the steel bracelet complete with a folding buckle.
In this monochrome setting, the hour and minute hands point to the round index markers and stand out perfectly thanks to their brilliant white color. The time information is therefore very easy to read. The measurement of time lapses is displayed in a classic format using the central second hand and the 45-minute counter positioned at 3 o’clock. There is a date window at 6 o’clock. All the information is powered by the MT5813 caliber and its chronometer precision is certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). This self-winding bidirectional movement offers a power reserve of 70 hours.
Only 1,181 pieces of the Black Bay Chrono Dark are available. This figure corresponds to the number of players who have worn the jersey with the silver fern since the creation of the team in 1884 and it will grow as players are selected on the pitch during the World Cup. The engraving on the case back specifies the number of each timepiece.
Price: 5,590 EUR
