Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” (lacivert) adını tabii ki renginden alıyor ama tek nedeni bu değil; saat aynı zamanda ilk Tudor dalgıçları için 1958’de 200 metreye (660 ft) kadar su geçirmezlik özelliği taşıyan Referans 7924 veya “Big Crown” adıyla piyasaya çıkan saate de gönderme yapıyor. Bu tarihi saate diğer estetik göndermelerin yanı sıra, bu model 1950’lerin karakteristik oranlarına uygun olarak 39 mm çapında bir kasa içinde geliyor. İnce bilekler, kompakt ve vintage saat meraklıları için ideal olan Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue”, Tudor’un mavi renkli spor saatleri geleneğini de sürdürüyor.

The Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” gets its name from its colour, of course, but also from the year 1958, in which the first TUDOR divers’ watch waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft), reference 7924 or “Big Crown”, was presented. Among other aesthetic nods to this historic watch, this model offers a 39 mm diameter case in in keeping with the characteristic proportions of the 1950s. Ideal for slim wrists, people who like more compact watches and vintage enthusiasts, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” also carries on with the long TUDOR tradition of blue sports watches.

Manufacture Calibre MT5402, COSC-certified with silicon balance spring and 70-hour power reserve. However, the performance of the watch is beyond the standards set by this independent institute. In fact, where COSC allows for an average variation in the daily running rate of a watch movement of between -4 and +6 seconds in relation to absolute time, TUDOR applies a tolerance of between -2 and +4 seconds’ variation in its daily rate on the watch fully assembled.
