BLACK BAY CHRONO S&G – A Purist’s Chronograph in steel and gold
The Black Bay Chrono S&G model combines the aquatic heritage of Tudor, represented by the famous Black Bay design, with one of the most iconic horological function, the chronograph in a steel and gold execution for a precious sporty-chic result with an undeniable touch of nostalgia.
The gold parts on the Black Bay Chrono S&G models all show a satin-brushed or sandblasted matt finish. This effect gives an intended warm tone to the yellow gold, a distinctive vintage look and feel to the watch.
The bezel and the first centre-link of the Black Bay Chrono S&G’s bracelet, at 12 and 6 o’clock, are made of 18k solid yellow gold. The other links as well as the crown are made using a gold-shell technique, where a piece of solid gold is folded over a core of stainless steel. Unlike gold-plating, this technique allows for multiple polishing jobs at service as the gold layer is far thicker.
Powered by manufacture calibre MT5813, complete with column wheel mechanism, vertical clutch, silicon balance spring and a power reserve of 70 hours, the Black Bay Chrono S&G offers a purists construction paired with unmatched value and quality for money in its category.
