“Tudor has been producing watches that are closely tied to the world of motorsport since the presentation of the Oysterdate in 1970, the brands first chronograph. In the same way, since 1954 Tudor has been constantly refining its professional divers’ watches. The Black Bay Chrono S&G model combines these traditions in a sport-chic chronograph, with contrasting sub-counters and a high-performance automatic Manufacture Calibre, with column wheel and vertical clutch.”

The refinements of the Evolution 9 Style are also clear to see; the lugs are wider and the bracelets are more robust and, like the cases, have a low center of gravity to ensure that the watches sit comfortably and securely on the wrist. 

The hands are bolder and more clearly differentiated for even greaternlegibility and the numerals on the bezel are of a new font developed especially for the Evolution 9 Collection.

The cases and bracelets are made of high-intensity titanium, which is about 30% lighter than stainless steel and brighter in color. 

The hands and indexes are coated with sufficient Lumibrite to further enhance the legibility of the time at night. The crown guard is carefully designed to avoid being caught by sleeves in both sport activities and everyday use.
