A Proper Tool Watch for Women-Tudor Replica Watch
As we have mentioned before that smaller women’s replica watches are coming back for selling, and some of the unveilings further cemented our focus. Case and point, one of Tudor’s last additions to the Black Bay line—the Black Bay 32—scales down the minimalist model beyond the unisex size 36 to a conventional women’s watch case size. Already an amazing and desirable model, the new Black Bay 32 is being provided both with a black dial or the new blue dial that released in all three sizes for 2018, starting from a modest cheap price.
There are details to this new launch that we love and others that we question a little, but all told we believe this release is one of their smarter moves of the year.
To use the Tudor marketing speak, the brand has “combined the technical sophistication of a tool-watch in a smaller, refined model for women.” Grammatical flaws aside, the statement is an accurate one.
We’re quickly approaching an era where the consumer is less willing to tolerate an increased premium for in-house manufacture calibers—especially with Panerai’s edgy move at SIHH converting the entire Due line to in-house without altering price structure—so if the fake Tudor ever plans to make the switch they’d best make a move sooner rather than later. Don’t get me wrong, the ETA 2824 is not a bad caliber. It’s this kind of thing that makes a brand appear to lack direction, much in the same way we’re seeing with the new replica Breitling models, where you can get a Navitimer 8 either with an in-house caliber or a supplied one—both of which will be sold side-by-side in the display case.
In 32mm guise, the case profile runs slightly closer to the bracelet width than seen on the 36 or 41mm examples, and the closer concentration of indices and hands against its semi-gloss lacquer dial seems more balanced than its larger siblings too. Being so used to the traditional Black Bay models fitted with a dive bezel, the Black Bay 41 always felt like it was missing some details for it to feel complete, and looking at the new 32 it’s almost as if the replica Tudor should have increased the size of its indices and hands slightly to compensate for the design change in the 41mm model while it first released.
Here’s why the Black Bay 32 makes sense at the end of the day. Not only is there a fast-growing demand for women’s watches in general, but if you ask any woman out there who wears serious fake watches on the regular, and you’ll hear the same thing: “Why do the watch brands assume that all ladies want a small watch covered in diamonds?!” While I have to say that there are some sales stats to back up the diamond-set trend that still runs rampant in watch-making, it’s great to see another option to hit the market.
