This year, Tudor launched the brand new Black Bay P01, which was the heritage model of the “Commando” released 60 years ago. The perfect fake Tudor entirely reproduced the appearance of the original model, reproducing the legendary history.
What is “Commando”?
This is a historical story in 1950s. Tudor took orders from the U.S. navy to develop a new military diving watch, known as the “Command” project, but the project was shelved at last.
Tudor Black Bay copy with steel case looks unique among the models of Black Bay collection for it has contained all the iconic features of the original model. So many people say it is strange. But in my mind it is absolutely not. It could be worn as any regular rounded watches such as Submariner, even it is not weird when matching with the shirts and suits.
Unlike the same appearance, the new distinctive knockoff watch has a modernized movement calibre MT5612 which provides a power reserve of 70 hours.
