Tudor and Breitling swapping movements in 2017 is a shocking move. When we saw the Tudor Black Bay at Baselworld 2017 I was pleasantly surprised by the Chronograph. The movement used in this Chronograph is based on the Breitling B01 movement. Now let’s get to know the historic Tudor Black Bay Chronograph replica watches.
MT5813 Chronograph Movement
The first thing to talk about is the chronograph movement that everyone is most interested in. The Tudor Black Bay Chronograph replica watches use the MT5813 movement. The Tudor MT5813 movement is the result of a collaboration between Tudor and Breitling and is distinguished by the Based on the Breitling B01 movement. The B01 movement, modified by Tudor, is fitted with a silicon balance spring. It is resistant to the effects of magnetic fields and temperature on the replica watches. The power reserve is three days. The movement is exquisitely crafted, functionally robust and has a COSC certificate.
The case is moderate in size and thickness, 41mm x 14.9mm, round stainless steel. On the right side of the case is the large crown and two screw-down pushers that a dive watch should have. Water resistance can be rated up to 200 meters and we can also see the depth of water resistance of these Tudor replica watches inside the dial. Enthusiastic red “200m:660ft”. The tachymeter on the stainless steel bezel is a reference to the Rolex Daytona, a classic combination.
The black dial has a finely grained texture. The sunken sub-dials have the same effect as the mother dial. At nine o’clock is the usual 60 seconds dial, but at three o’clock is a 45 minutes dial instead of 30 minutes. The snowflake hour hand is representative of Tudor, although it is large. The date window is a controversial design element. The date window is placed at six o’clock to reflect the symmetry of the dial. The white background not only echoes the hour markers, but also stands out against the black dial.
All in all, the Tudor Black Bay MT5813 Chronograph replica watches combine the design elements of a typical chronograph and a diving watch. With the addition of the MT5813 automatic chronograph movement, Tudor has turned the diving replica watches into a diving chronograph.
