Gone are the days when Tudor was shyly staying in the shadow of its big brother. Now, the Swiss brand has a huge new manufacture, beautiful campaigns and spectacular novelties every year.

I heartily recommend you to watch the brand’s video presentation from Watches and Wonders 2023, it is truly a grand lesson in showing the strength and the emotion of what is rapidly becoming a huge-following brand. I greatly enjoyed the humour, the storyline and, of course, David Beckham and the All Blacks.

But not as much as I did the actual collection – I must say that this is already becoming a tradition for me – looking forward to seeing the Tudor novelties.

I absolutely loved the new Black Bay with a new METAS certified movement, the self-winding Manufacture Calibre MT5602-U, fitted with a bidirectional rotor system. I would hate to sound superficial, but I really want this watch because of the burgundy bezel. I also like the slightly domed black dial, of course, the original 42mm steel case.

I also liked the Black Bay 54, a nod to Tudor’s first dive watch, reference 7922. The 37mm case retains the classic proportions of the original, now including calibre MT5400 and a 200m water resistance. No graduated hash marks on the bezel, lollipop design for the seconds hand, redesigned crown – in short, much cleaner aesthetics.
