For those with an array of family members and friends to satisfy this holiday season, it can be a daunting task to round out your gift list to suit different needs and interests. To ease that stress, Tudor’s dynamic timepieces are a premium gift for anyone on your list this holiday season.
The Swiss brand was founded in 1926 by Hans Wilsdorf and initially supplied watches to the US Navy and the French Marine Nationale, making premium quality a pillar of the brand as they were originally conceptualized with sustainability in mind. Tudor showcases a range of eye-catching gift options, including the coveted Black Bay line and newer models such as the adventure-inspired Ranger and the Pelagos 39 Diving Watch.
One of the best features of Tudor’s watches is their versatility – they can be combined with different looks and are made to perform in different conditions. Whether you’re gifting the athletic enthusiast or high-fashion enthusiast in your life, Hypebeast has put together a Tudor Watches Gift Guide to show off the best combinations for the Black Bay GMT, Black Bay Fifty-Eight and Black Bay 41 S&G models.
Tudor Black Bay GMT
Combine it with: Thom Browne Tonal Strap Leather Reporter Bag
The Black Bay GMT was created with the traveler in mind, as it has a GMT feature that updates the local time while providing two additional time zones. Powered by the Manufacture Caliber MT5652, the Black Bay GMT showcases a 24-hour graduated rotating bezel, brought to life by its two-tone colorway, mimicking day and night. Wearers have a choice of a metal, brown leather or fabric strap. Other features include a 41mm satin-brushed steel case, glowing hour markers against a black display, and it’s water resistant to 200 meters. Playing on the travel theme that defines the Black Bay GMT, the Thom Browne Tonal Leather Strap Reporter Bag is the ideal gift for the nomad or adventurer on your vacation list. The versatile tote features a pebbled leather exterior and a zipped main compartment with three interior pockets.

Tudor Black Bay fifty-eight
Combine it with: John Elliot Corduroy Cloak Button Up Shirt
The Black Bay Fifty-Eight is designed with a slimmer fit for those with smaller wrists, those who prefer compact watches and vintage collectors – as it’s also a nod to the brand’s very first diving watches. The Fifty-Eight honors the Tudor watch dimensions of the past, but is modernized with sleek colorways, from navy blue to gold to bronze. The movement is powered by Manufacture Calibers MT5400 and MT5402 which display hours, minutes and seconds. Other features include a choice of leather or fabric strap, a 39mm steel case and a 70-hour power reserve. A button-down is a timeless piece inspired by the classics of the past, just like the Black Bay Fifty-Eight. This longsleeve from John Elliot features a neutral color scheme that blends effortlessly with other garments, a seven-button placket and a front pocket.

The watch’s 24-hour graduated rotating bezel is a highlight of the watch, which shows off a dynamic two-tone bracelet and a 41mm case. The model is available in different colorways and is water resistant to 100 meters. The eye-catching metallic finish of the Maison Margiela Cardholder perfectly complements the striking metal elements of the Black Bay 41 S&G.
