* In 1967, Tudor, who had been supplying the US Navy with divers' watches since the late 1950s, began development of a new watch needed to meet a set of specifications required by the American government. This resulted in the production of prototypes, however the ambitious project, which carried the code name "Commando", never came to fruition. The Tudor Black Bay P01 model – which stands for prototype 1 – is inspired by a prototype developed as part of this study and kept in the brand's archives, only to have its unique aesthetic brought to life 50 years later.  The hinged end-link system on the original prototype was the subject of a patent in 1968, which covered a locking and dismantling system for the bezel to aid maintenance of the watch. The Black Bay P01 model borrows from this mechanism, providing a stop system for the bidirectional rotating bezel via a mobile end-link at 12 o’clock.

 

* The watch houses the Tudor calibre MT5612 automatic movement which is Chronometer certified and offers a 70-hour power reserve. The watch comes fitted to a leather/rubber hybrid strap and also features brushed steel attachments to the case and fold clasp.

 

* This piece comes in excellent condition (8/10) and perfect working order. Box and papers dated January 2021 are included making Tudor's 5-year warranty valid until 2026. Current new RRP £3160
