2017 Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41
An elegant yet sporty steel wristwatch model, Tudor introduced a 41mm Heritage Black Bay at Baselworld 2017. Featuring a minimalistic design and thin middle case, it is ideal for those that want a watch that can transition from the outdoors to the office. This model resembled the popular Rolex Explorer model with characteristics that are unique to Tudor watches, like the snowflake-shaped hour hand.
Larger case sizes are in demand these days, and while Tudor increased the diameter of the case on the Reference 79540, they took steps to make it as thin as possible so that it can slip under the cuff of a suit. Other Black Bay models come with a domed sapphire crystal while the crystal of the 41mm is flat. It also comes with a smooth polished steel bezel. These elements combined with a thinner middle case create a low profile sports watch.
The Black Bay 41 is powered by a calibre 2824 self-winding mechanical movement. It has a power reserve of approximately 38 hours and a depth rating of 150 meters. It is available on the steel bracelet shown above or on a brown leather strap with a folding clasp and safety catch. Either option comes with a camouflage fabric strap as well.

Panerai Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio 47mm
Over the past decade, Panerai has become known for their oversized watch cases. While a 47mm case diameter satisfies popular demand, it can weigh the wearer’s wrist down. With their Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio (PAM01305), the watchmaker has taken an innovative material approach to solve this problem. Using titanium on the large Luminor 1950 case, they make this large dive watch lightweight and resistant to corrosion.
The large display of the PAM 1305 is clearly legible in any environment, with a black dial and contrasting hands and markers. Super-LumiNova luminescence fills the markers, hands and graduated scale on the brushed steel bezel. This model’s features also include a small date aperture at 3 o’clock and a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock. The strap is made using black caoutchouc, adding to its sporty aesthetic.
Consisting of 200 components including 31 jewels, the P.9010 calibre that powers the Titanio 47mm was developed and manufactured entirely by Panerai. It oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of 3 days. This movement, measuring 12.75 lignes in diameter with a thickness of 6mm, provides functionality that includes the center hands, date and small seconds.
