When TUDOR first launched the Black Bay bronze watch in 2016, there were so many choices of entry-level bronze watches. The relatively friendly price plus the good quality impression of God’s rudder gave the model at that time. Bronze watches with chocolate noodles became the most sought-after products in the market. The hard-to-find grand occasion was impressive; it was only more than three years apart. Now there are many more brands and series that have introduced bronze watches, and the price bands are getting wider and wider In 2019, Tudor re-launched a new bronze watch with a new color. It is a challenge for this year’s Black Bay Bronze II to reproduce the BB bronze fever three years ago.
Tudor introduced the new Black Bay bronze watch, maintaining all the features of the series and the previous work. The new style was replaced with a new color of slate gray. The entry-level bronze watch that had caused the market to pursue and was recognized by professional awards was back strong
Why is it risky? According to Cheng Qian, the watch market has changed a lot in the past three years. The trend of bronze watches from the beginning of the Panerai Kelp is still a niche and rare style, and now it has become a bit of an egg tower phenomenon in the watch industry. Brands are scrambling to launch bronze watches, but instead make something special that is ordinary. It is certainly a good thing for consumers to be more selective. However, for brands, how to strengthen the competitiveness of their products is very important. The advantage of Black Bay Bronze is that its previous generation of works made everyone crazy, some people may not have the opportunity to buy that star watch, maybe this has become a regret in his mind, and now seeing Tudor launching a bronze watch again (although it’s true Just change the color), but the desire to have in the heart may be stronger than his brand’s bronze watch.
The surface and bezel are in a new slate gray tone, producing more subtle changes over time, blooming a unique beauty
I almost forgot that the Black Bay bronze watch won the small hands award of the Geneva Watch Awards in the year of launch (in the definition of the award at the time, this can be called the table of the best CP value of the year), so it Word of mouth is not only from the market, even the watch industry’s clock industry people are quite sure, if you have to buy any bronze watch, Black Bay Bronze should be one of the pocket list.
In addition to the leather strap, the model can also choose the Tudor’s unique textured strap to match the personality of the same.
The new color that the new Black Bay Bronze put on this time is called slate gray. From the public relations diagram, it will initially be thought of as dark green, but the actual watch should still be close to gray. The bezel and dial of this model are both correct. The same color tone is used, the difference is that the face plate has a gradation effect, so its gray will not look too monotonous, plus the strength of the bronze watch-unique patina over time, which is different from the copper case The disadvantage of other metal watch cases is also an advantage, because even if everyone buys the same bronze watch, as the time and method of different people wear it, the change of bronze color will present a unique texture, as if it is a hidden The custom design of sex makes people love it even more. The new Black Bay bronze watch is equipped with the same Tudor-made MT5601 movement as the previous one, so we don’t need to reprint too much. The movement made by Rolex’s brothers may still be worse.
