2022 Tudor Black Bay Pro GMT Watch
When we get to experience the replica Tudor Watches Black Bay firsthand at the 2022 Geneva Watch Fair, I wonder how much our watch lovers would like to see a new version of this fan-favorite timepiece different from the original.
As my mind revolves around old and new Tudors and Rolexes, I also consider the Porsche 911 line - arguably the equivalent of Rolex and Tudor in the automotive world, as it practices the fine art of repackaging the same product, giving it New personalities and, of course, they hope, a new clientele. Both industries have figured out how to repackage essentially the same product at a higher price.
Just check the base prices for the 911 992 Carrera, Turbo and Sport Design, or check the prices for the steel, two-tone and full gold Submariner. Surprisingly similar approach. It's a thing because it's both a necessity and because it works. Brands, especially conservative ones like Rolex and Porsche, need to find a way to reach a wider audience without having to invent a new product or collection every other year. On the consumer side, well, many of us show a tendency to see product variation as a beloved vehicle for self-expression.high quality replica watches
Skeptical? I haven't spoken to any Black Bay owners who haven't been able to outline to me exactly why they chose a particular Black Bay with this case size and wear it on a particular strap, as do many 911 owners. In this case, I have more respect for Tudor than Rolex or Porsche because it has to operate within the constraints of the "affordable luxury watch segment". It can't just double or triple the price for its core product (Black Bay). However, the Rolex-owned watchmaker has been quite successful in bringing new flavors to Black Bay. The collection built around vintage Tudor and Rolex diver's watches was a huge success. It is one of the strongest value propositions once you factor in wearability, quality, design, and athletic performance.
So many of us are looking forward to the new Black Bay iteration, looking for a new creation that might be the perfect way to enjoy Black Bay in the flavors we love. So you can imagine my excitement when I learned that there was a new "Pro" version coming out of Geneva. It leads me to believe we'll find out what Tudor thinks about making watches more "professional". This is exciting because Tudor is a powerful brand that works with many different materials - not just any of its direct competitors, with cases made of titanium, ceramic, silver, bronze and impressive Made of solid stainless steel. Could it be a new case material? A more shock-resistant movement? Some unique bracelet or strap designs? It turns out that, according to the brand,replica luxury watches
So, what are the actual differences between the Tudor Black Bay Pro and Tudor Black Bay GMT watches? The Pro version features a new "T-shaped" clasp with integrated quick-adjustment function, the winding crown is flush with the middle case strap, making the tube invisible, and an integral luminous hour with a larger luminous area compared to the case mark. Metal frame markers on non-Pro GMTs. Interestingly, the water resistance remains the same, the Tudor MT5652 movement remains the same (no longer more accurate or shock resistant), and the domed (cool looking) sapphire crystal doesn't seem to have any reflections.
That doesn't mean that even though Tudor doesn't seem to specify what these professionals do, the Black Bay Pro at least can't withstand some form of professional use. Are they divers? Explorer? Skyscraper window cleaner? Its bracelet, case and crystal all feel sturdy and arguably no less than any Professional Series Rolex. However, with Tudor now sponsoring a cycling team and launching a Pro version of one of its bestsellers, it might be a good time to introduce a more shock-resistant version of the "Made by Tudor" sport, or, if this isn't seen as necessary , and then more openly communicate the reliability and durability of its movement when mounted in a “tool watch designed for professional use.” The original Black Bay GMT may be hard to beat in practical terms,replica Devon Watches
OK, enough about the Pro, let's see this new piece as a new Black Bay for your consideration. Dials, hands, hour-markers and all text work through contrast: contrasts between colours, textures and shapes. The luminous surface and text are smooth, and the bottom of the dial and the contours of the hands are textured. Here we should note that on the prototype we shot, the black center of the pointer looked very rough - this particular area could use a little extra work for a bigger improvement, even on the tool table.
Consistent with what we established above, Tudor's case quality on the Black Bay Pro is exemplary. The lines are sharp, the polishing is deep and bright, and the fit is excellent. The case, as well as the three-link stainless steel bracelet, looks and feels great from close up and from a distance. One small caveat is the high strap between the lugs when wearing the Black Bay Pro on the jacquard woven fabric strap - this is the only time this model can't hide its extra thickness and is only 15mm shorter, mind you, that's up to Weight of the ETA 7750 Chronograph.replica Richard Mille RAFAEL NADAL
