The relationship between Tudor and Australia stretches back to the 1940s – there’s a good chance your father or even grandfather has a watch bearing the distinctive rose or shield logo. But as the brand commences an exciting renaissance, it’s time for the second chapter in the Australian Tudor story. Time+Tide are honoured to partner with Tudor as they win over a new generation of watch lovers.

VIDEO: This is what Tudor’s 3 top 2019 releases look like on the wrist

It’s testament to the power and ongoing evolution of Tudor’s blue-chip Black Bay family that our top three picks from Baselworld 2019 are all Black Bays, and also — from a distance at least — look very different indeed.  Without a doubt, the most discussed and most genuinely novel watch of the bunch (and perhaps of the whole fair) is the Black Bay P01. While the dial bears a lot of the hallmarks of the Black Bay, the case is Something. Else. Entirely. Long, with a blocky crown guard at four, and a steel bi-directional 12-hour bezel that’s held in place by the articulated bracelet end link at 12. I’m pretty sure absolutely no one saw this coming, and people are taking their time to get used to the concept. I will say though, this watch is very comfy on the wrist.  The other two watches are far more conventional offerings. The slate grey-dialled Black Bay Bronze replaces the brown version, and the new colour (and the fact that it’s shaded) certainly adds plenty of drama and contrast to the watch. And then there’s the Black Bay Chrono S&G, which adds some flash to the Chrono, and a more sophisticated profile to… Read More

LIST: A quick look at the hottest Tudor watches of Basel 2019

Tudor’s Baselworld 2019 collection is always a hotly anticipated affair, and this year the Shield offered some stylish new takes on existing models, and a distinctive diver no one saw coming.  Tudor Black Bay P01 One of the more interesting, unexpected and downright surprising releases of Baselworld 2019 has to be the Tudor Black Bay P01. To paraphrase that guy from Star Trek: it’s a Black Bay, Jim — but not as we know it. Based on a prototype watch developed in the late 1960s with the US Navy in mind, this Black Bay is pure tool watch. The party trick here is that the bi-directional bezel (which is graduated for hours — something I’ve been wanting on a Black Bay since forever) is locked in place via the ingenious mobile end link at 12. And for all its blocky shape, this 42mm works really well on the wrist. 3750 CHF Tudor Black Bay Bronze  The Black Bay Bronze is dead! Long live the Black Bay Bronze! Well, by that I mean the original brown-dialled bronze Black Bay has been removed from the catalogue, replaced by this handsome fellow. All details are unchanged, except for the dial, which is now a shaded… Read More

LIST: Tudor’s teasers – Cam takes a few guesses

In case you were unaware (how is that rock you’ve been living under?), Baselworld 2019 is nearly upon us. So, while the rest of the team are currently en route to Basel, I’ve planted myself firmly behind each one of my digital detective devices and taken off in search of any and all clues as to what Tudor may soon have in store for us. Putting together this quick list of Tudor’s teasers and making a few speculations as to what I think each one may mean. Editor’s note: When I say speculations, these are absolutely nothing more than my own theories. However, I have tried to make my guesses as educated as possible. The triangle hour marker This was the first teaser posted by Tudor this year, and it seems many (myself included) were quick to guess that Tudor will re-release its Submariner. While it’s certainly a good guess, there isn’t exactly a lot to go on, other than the fact that it’s a triangle-shaped hour marker at what looks to be 9 o’clock. You see, in 1989 – exactly 30 years ago – Tudor revised its Submariner, replacing its Snowflake hands with Mercedes-style hands and switching out its… Read More

INSIGHT: David Beckham’s Tudors prove that old, messed up watches are the best

A little while ago, Tudor shared two short videos with their premier ambassador, Mr David Beckham, that looked at two of his Tudor watches. And I’ve got to say, as far as showing what a brand is all about, they’re pretty hard to beat. The first video looks at the first Tudor watch Beckham owned and wore, a 1969 Snowflake Sub, which Beckham describes as an “old, messed up watch”. And while I wouldn’t go quite so far as to say it’s messed up, it has certainly lived a life, with a beautifully faded ghost bezel and some real age on the dial. What’s better than the watch though is Beckham’s attitude towards it: he appreciated the authenticity of old objects and, given that he wears it most days, “likes to think he’s added a scratch or two”. Now, there is absolutely no doubt that Beckham has added a scratch or two to his Tudor Black Bay Blue, a watch that he’s taken riding, and has put through its paces. Deep, shiny silver scratches are visible on the case and, most notably, the aluminium bezel insert — marks earned during roadside repairs and general adventuring. What’s even better is that Beckham… Read More

 LIST: Tudor’s 4 brand ambassadors, and the watches they wear

As 2018 comes to a close, we thought it appropriate to look back at one of our favourite brands — Tudor, who’ve had a noteworthy few years, especially in the ambassador department. It’s particularly interesting to reflect on, given the fact that until recently the brand never really played the ambassador game. Now that they’ve got a handful, here’s what we think … David Beckham Tudor’s first brand ambassador, David Beckham, took the watch world by surprise. Many questioned the move, but once the dust settled, it made complete sense. Although now a retired athlete, Beckham truly is a worldwide icon with a solid reputation. Tudor was looking for an ambassador with global reach and recognition, one who lived up to their values and was known for excelling in their chosen field. This strategic move was undoubtedly a good one, and although years into his retirement from soccer, there’s no arguing that Beckham ticks all those boxes. Beckham wears the Tudor Black Bay Chrono, the Black Bay S&G and, most recently, the Glamour Double Date. Being Tudor’s biggest ambassador, it makes sense to have him across core pieces and new releases. That being said, the Black Bay S&G certainly suits his… Read More

VIDEO: Tudor’s 1926 is a classic charmer

One of the more intriguing releases from Tudor this year — and one that didn’t get quite the attention it otherwise would have, thanks to the show-stealing GMT — was the classically styled 1926. Taking its name from the year the Tudor name was registered, it also owes some design cues to this golden era of style. Take, for example, the finely textured waffle dial, with the blued Arabic numerals interspersed with arrow-head markers. Lovely, but also wearable, and entirely wearable nearly 100 years later. The case is well-sized, the movement rock solid, and the solidly made bracelet adds a nice dash of slash. It all means you’ve got a watch that looks the business, no matter what the business is.
