Tudor Black Bay GMT: diving watch with GMT function & Pepsi bezel
Thanks to its unique overall concept and high technical specifications, the Tudor Black Bay GMT truly stands out from the crowd. The Black Bay was originally conceived as a nod to the Rolex Submariner. Since 2018, though, the Tudor GMT has combined the features of a diving watch with the popular Pepsi bezel and GMT function in a way that's totally groundbreaking. It means you can set your watch to local time while also keeping an eye on two other time zones. One of Tudor's most sought after models, this makes a great, affordable alternative to the legendary Rolex GMT-Master II.

In comparison: Tudor Black Bay vs. Tudor Black Bay GMT
Wowing watch enthusiasts since 2018, the Black Bay GMT is a spin-off from of Tudor's diving collection. All the features that made the Black Bay series so popular are carried over in this eye-catching update. The Tudor GMT is available in the collection's tried-and-tested 41 mm stainless steel case, with its large crown. The domed sapphire crystal also slots snugly into the design of the sister model. There's only one really striking difference in design concept, and that's the addition of pointy, snow flake-shaped hands to the Tudor GMT. These certainly contribute to the watch's unique charm! As for the colour scheme, there's a homage to the Rolex GMT-Master II. And, to the delight of many connoisseurs, the Tudor GMT watch is emblazoned with the legendary Pepsi bezel in blue and red.
From a technical standpoint, the Black Bay GMT represents another big step forward for Tudor, combining the rugged features of a diving watch with a high tech GMT function.
Versatile, modern stainless steel, leather or textile bracelets
Depending on the model's exact reference number, you can select from three stylish bracelet variations when ordering the Tudor GMT Black Bay:
The reference M79830RB-0001 comes in a three-row, retro rivet-style bracelet made of stainless steel, with a folding safety clasp. Back in the '50s and '60s, the links on watch straps were connected with rivets, and the design harks back to this with small caps on the screw heads that create the same impression. Front and back have a satin finish, with the sides polished for a subtle note of contrast. You can get a Tudor GMT used watch like this in mint condition from around £3,520.
Don't fancy a metal bracelet? Try the Black Bay GMT with the reference M79830RB-0002. This has a rustic leather bracelet and folding safety clasp. The Terra di Siena bracelet is reddish brown in colour, with a casual, slightly distressed look. Thanks to our large selection, you can buy this model from CHRONEXT starting at around £3,000.
The Tudor GMT with the reference M79830RB-0003 has a black textile strap with red stripes. While the other two variations of bracelet have a folding safety clasp, this one is secured with a stainless steel pin buckle. Perhaps the sportiest variation in the series, it's also the most affordable with a price range around £2,800 and £3,160. No Tudor GMT waiting lists at CHRONEXT – place your order on your watch now.
The in-house MT5652 calibre in detail
First-class quality guaranteed: The impressive MT5652 in-house calibre is a double-sided automatic movement with a COSC certificate, which was specially developed for the Tudor Black Bay GMT. This certification ensures optimum accuracy, with a deviation of no more than five seconds per day being permitted.
The power reserve can run up to 70 hours, and this watch is shockproof too thanks to the thoughtful construction of the balance wheel. And that's not all. Courtesy of a silicon spring within its workings, the Black Bay GMT can also withstand strong magnetic fields. Probably the most remarkable element of this watch, though, is its GMT function. It's fully integrated, which means you can easily set different time zones separately.
