Tudor has been hitting the right notes ever since making a comeback in 2010 with the Heritage chronograph.

Baselworld 2018 brings us a much-requested complication - GMT second time zone. The Tudor Black Bay GMT was unveiled the same day as its parent company, Rolex, unveiled the GMT-Master II with jubilee bracelet. The Watchuseek team has dubbed this Pepsi and the Pepsi Lite, where Rolex is former and Tudor the latter.
The first impression is that BB GMT is a handsome as well as a useful watch. As part of the Black Bay family, it has most of same characteristics as previous models - the snowflake hands (including GMT hand), the large crown minus the different color stem and embossed logo, 41mm case with polished and satin finish, riveted bracelet, and 200m waterproofness.
Focusing on the striking bi-directional bezel, it is matt burgundy and blue. Basically, the blue comes from the bezel of the 2014 Black Bay Blue, and burgundy from the original 2012 Black Bay Burgundy. Tudor combined these two halves into the GMT bezel.
BB GMT also has a new MT 5652 COSC movement with 70-hour power reserve, silicon balance spring, and integrated GMT function. The new movement does not add to the height of the case, which remains the same at 14.8mm.
The GMT hand you will notice is longer than other hands and extends past the minute track. This was done on purpose to easily tell the difference and to be closer to the bezel for second time zone.
Black Bay GMT is CHF 3,700 on the steel bracelet, and CHF 3,400 on the leather or fabric strap. It will be available in June, 2018.
