Overview

The new TUDOR Black Bay P01 reflects the exploratory nature of a unique prototype proposed for the US Navy. Named the “Commando” project, TUDOR were busy developing and incorporating a diver’s watch with a navigator’s watch. Respecting the utilitarian aesthetics of the prototype, the case on this contemporary sports model is sized at 42mm and crafted from steel with an all-over satin finish. TUDOR have also adopted the principle of the winding crown positioned at 4 o’clock and borrowed a hinged end-link system as a stop function for the bidirectional rotating bezel. The modern day domed black dial features a date aperture, highly legible painted luminous hour markers and like all other Black Bay models, the Black Bay P01 adopts the signature “Snowflake” hands. Being a present-day divers’ watch, the Black Bay P01 is waterproof to 200 meters and consists of modern-day manufacturing techniques, reliability, robustness and quality for a historically aesthetic inspired, contemporary manufactured timepiece.

THE INSPIRATION

Baselwolrd 2019 saw TUDOR introduce the new Black Bay P01 model, a watch based on a legendary prototype developed for the US Navy in the late 1960’s. Due to strict specifications set by the American government, TUDOR engineers rigorously researched the latest in functionality, efficiency and comfort to incorporate into proposed prototypes. Unfortunately, the ambitious project code named “Commando” never materialised past anything but these prototypes after the US Navy decided to adopt the newest TUDOR Submariner model instead. Fast forward 50 years, and TUDOR have delved into their archives to bring this unique prototype to life. The new Black Bay P01 model which stands for prototype 1, has been inspired by one of the developed prototypes from this punctilious project.
