Tudor came into existence in the year 1926 when the founder of Rolex – Hans Wildorf – came upon the thought that he is going to offer rich in quality timepieces at a not too expensive price. Tudor has evolved and it became well accepted in the society which led the people to appreciate it. This meant that Tudor was on a path of success and that it was going to prosper even further.Tudor has its roots in Switzerland. What sets Tudor apart from its competitors is that they have given birth to a popular Tudor Heritage Collection. Ever since then, Tudor decided to develop a watch line which stands out from all else. It put in so much effort in developing this Tudor watch line that it decided to bring about a deficit in its whole catalog. The Tudor sports watch line was known as the Tudor Black Bay line and it was so wonderfully created that it became one of the best modern watches in town and created a special place in the market.

Tudor Black Bay GMT
One of the brand new invention by Tudor is their Black Bay 79830RB. In the 2018 Baselworld, Tudor finally added the Black Bay GMT model to their product line-up and filled the void for the watch lovers.
The Tudor Black Bay GMT watch came out with the 41mm platform. The Tudor GMT watch brings the buyers a new level of approachability when shopping for the strongly desired “Pepsi” design.
Since the introduction of this Tudor GMT Pepsi, the collection of Tudor Black Bay has been proven to be amongst the most worthy and accessible options for the people who are looking for a high-quality Swiss made watch at a reasonable price.
Now the Black Bay GMT watches are divided into two types: Independent 24 hour and Local jumping hour. The Independent 24 hour is owned by ETA and their universal 2893-2 movement and makes use of an independent 24-hour hand that helps in tracking the timezone using the 24-hour scale or bezel. They are ideal for tracking the other time zones just sitting at home.
Whereas, the Local Jumping Hour is considered to be more complicated yet offers more flexibility for actual travel. Together with the 24-hour hand, it has the ability to jump the main (i.e your local timing) hour hand in one-hour increments in one or the other direction to update to a new time zone.
Now coming to its specifications, the case of the Tudor GMT is made of stainless steel and measures about 41mm wide and 15mm thick. The Tudor GMT watch is 200m water resistance and its dial is a matte black accompanied by a largely applied marker, a readable and Snowflake-heavy handset, and a balanced use of text.
