Tudor Black Bay P01 Navy Watch

Vintage is in.

The 2019 Basel watch fair is all about reminiscing on the past and bringing the the good old days back to the wrist. Whether it’s Breitling with the aesthetically vintage Premier, Tag Heuer’s reintroduction of the Autavia line, the Black Bay P01 Tudor or the gorgeous Patek Philippe Ref 5212 Calatrava Weekly Calendar, Vintage is in.

A bold entry into the Tudor catalogue, the Black Bay P01 is bound to dichotomize it’s followers. What might throw people off is the elongated look of the watch and the winding crown sitting at 4 o’clock instead of the traditional 3 o’clock. Flanking the crown are tall crown guards which lends the case its unusual shape. Much of its origins come from a hinged end-link system prototype from the late 1960s created for the US Navy. It plays directly into the 12 hour bi-directional bezel that locks with the hinged end-link from the strap. You may have guessed it by now, but the P in P01 stands for Prototype.

Little surprise, a lot to love

Whether you're a timepiece connoisseur, watch geek, or an amateur collector, there's one week of the year that we all look forward to; Basel week. Thousands travel from all over the world to visit Basel Switzerland to find out what's the latest and greatest from the finest watchmaking companies in the world. But there is a reason one iconic company has a Crown as a logo--they know how to make the suspense of their release almost unbearable. From official Rolex teasers with shadowy and unrecognizable cases the week of, to superfans photoshopping everything fromt he boring to the otherworldly. This year's Rolex Basel 2019 releases brought the highly suspected new models of the Oystersteel Datejust 36 and 31 and some very interesting re-designs of classics.
