INTRODUCING: Tudor Black Bay Chrono Pink

Tudor Black Bay Chrono Pink

Released following the announcement of Tudor’s partnership with Inter Miami CF, the watch will be released in limited numbers.

Days before Watches and Wonders, after it became the official timekeeper of the Inter Miami CF, Tudor released the Black Bay Chrono Pink, which dominated headlines almost immediately. No one expected a tribute watch for a relatively unexpected sponsorship deal to come out so quickly and in such an arresting hue, too.

The Tudor Black Bay Chrono Pink has a 41mm stainless steel case and matching bracelet.

But its colourway shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The brand’s well-loved Taiwanese ambassador, Jay Chou, has made the colour pink his signature, as have the pro cyclists of the Tudor-sponsored Giro d’Italia team. Indeed, when Beckham dreamed up Inter Miami CF, pink was incorporated into the team’s aesthetic because they had to stand out. For the same reason, so does the Black Bay Chrono Pink.

The Tudor Black Bay Chrono Pink sports the collection’s well-loved features, including the ‘Snowflake’ hands and the self-winding Manufacture Chronograph Calibre MT5813.

Otherwise, this is your standard-issue Black Bay Chrono, right from the robust 41mm steel case to the 200m water resistance and the self-winding Manufacture Chronograph Calibre MT5813 – derived from the Calibre B01 from Breitling – ticking within. Atop the matte-finished cotton candy pink dial are black sub-dials, with a 45-minute counter (to measure the two halves of a soccer match, perhaps?) and a date window. Time is indicated by ‘Snowflake’ hands gliding over lume-filled indexes for maximum legibility. There is one surprise, though – the watch is fitted with last year’s five-link Jubilee-style bracelet and ‘T-fit’ clasp, which allows instant, tool-free length adjustment of up to 8mm.

The five-link Jubilee-style bracelet is equipped with a ‘T-fit’ rapid adjustment clasp.

According to Tudor, the Black Bay Chrono Pink won’t be part of the brand’s regular catalogue. Recognising that this watch isn’t for everyone, it will be released in unspecified limited numbers. This is Tudor’s stand for now, anyway – there is no way of knowing if the watch will be introduced in its permanent collection later on. Perhaps Tudor is testing the market with the Black Bay Chrono Pink? Lest we forget, Tudor has experimented with the collection before, from the Visa Cash App RB Formula One racing team’s Black Bay Ceramic with a blue dial, which has only been spotted on Daniel Ricciardo’ wrist thus far, to the Tudor Pro Cycling Team’s exclusive Black Bay Chrono Dark.

The pink dial strikes a handsome contrast with the steel and black elements of the watch – the styling is immaculate.

The new Black Bay Chrono Pink is an interesting bridge connecting the brand’s sports sponsorship strategy and fans of the Black Bay family. Establishing a link between this cult-status timepiece and a young team with high-profile players like Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, and Luis Suárez is a clever play to grow Tudor’s influence on global sports.
