Unlike its bigger brother, Tudor can afford to be bold. The Tudor Black Bay Ceramic One embodies the company’s distinct style with a matted black on black design that is accentuated by brushed and bead-blasted finishes. The allure of its captivating appearance is built upon a stark yet subtle contrast that gives a surprising sense of depth to its monochromatic color scheme. Although impractical as an everyday time-telling device, it does feature black lume and 200 meters of water resistance to give it more visibility when you need it the most.
Though its style certainly sets it apart, the Tudor Black Bay Ceramic One’s excellence is embodied by its intricate engineering. The 41mm case with 14.8mm of thickness houses a unidirectional PVD-treated titanium bezel with lumed dial and hands. A comfortable hybrid strap made from black alligator leather and rubber adds another layer of texture to the one-of-a-kind ceramic timepiece. The Tudor Black Bay Ceramic One will be up for bid during the 2019 Only Watch auction on November 9th in the mecca of watchmaking — Geneva, Switzerland. Bidding for the privilege to own this watch begins at $4,500.
