Full of Fan Favorite Details, Another Look at the Tudor Black Bay 58 GMT in 39mm Case (with Hands-on Photos)

First released by Tudor at Watches & Wonders 2024 is the Black Bay 58 GMT. The new watch is done in a 39mm case and takes cues from the golden age of air travel, being inspired by the classic Tudor ref. 7924 “Big Crown.” Joining the current Black Bay lineup, the novel Black Bay 58 GMT is all about old-school details paired with a case size beloved by enthusiasts and casual fans, alike. It’s really hard to find much fault with this new iteration as it nails just about every detail without being too saccharine or self-reverent in its nostalgic design.

Not just a shrunken down version of the 41mm Black Bay GMT, this new model has reworked proportions and a slimmer case. The 39mm case measures 12.8mm thick with a 47.8mm lug-to-lug height (200 m of water resistance) with a screw down crown. While there is only the one color way at the time of release, there are options for a bracelet or strap. The three-link “rivet-style” bracelet is inspired by the bracelets of the 1950s and 1960s and has a gentle taper from the clasp up to the end-link. There is also a black rubber strap option which is cut-to-size. Both the bracelet and strap come with Tudor’s T-fit clasp which allows up to 8mm of adjustment without the use of any tools.

Vintage touches throughout the watch can be seen in the burgundy and black bidirectional bezel with its gilt finish on the 24-hour scale, as well as through the hour markers and “snowflake” style hands. Inside is the COSC-certified GMT Manufacture Calibre MT5450-U which boasts a silicon hairspring and 65-hour power reserve.

It’s not a risky bet to assume that the Tudor Black Bay 58 GMT is going to be a huge hit, as so many people have been waiting for a GMT in this size with the same tough dive specs that befit anything named a Black Bay. Pricing for this watch is marked at 4,100 CHF on the rubber strap and 4,300 CHF on the steel bracelet, or about $4,500 and $4,750 USD, respectively.
