Baselworld 2018: The Tudor Black Bay GMT.

The 41mm Tudor Black Bay GMT Model Reference # M79830RB-0002 on brown leather strap. Retail price: $3,870.00 USD.

This year at Baselworld Tudor released several watches that stole the show. Among them was my personal favourite the Black Bay GMT travel watch competitively priced at $3,870.00 USD on a leather strap. (Also available on a nato strap, or alternatively a stainless steel bracelet for $4,210 USD). Arguably this is one of the best value GMT travel watches priced under $5,000. Adding a true manufacture GMT timepiece to the successful Black Bay lineup just made this one of the most sought after watches of 2018.Photo Credit: James Stacey
