Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight Ref. 79030B


Pre-owned Tudor 39mm Black Bay Fifty-Eight, Blue Dial, Fabric Strap, Ref. 79030B

The Black Bay Fifty-Eight gets its name from the year 1958 when the Tudor divers’ watch water resistance was increased to 200 meters (660 ft).  Among other aesthetic nods to this historic watch, the model offers a case 39 mm in diameter in keeping with the characteristic proportions of the 1950s.  The self-winding mechanical movement with bidirectional rotor system is certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), with performances going beyond the standards set by this independent institute.  The power reserve is 70 hours, which enables the wearer to take the watch off on a Friday evening and put it back on again on Monday morning without having to reset it.  One of Tudor’s signature features, the fabric strap is made using the Jacquard technique, a traditional method achieved by a 150-year-old family business from the St-Etienne region of France.
