MARCH 2023 YEAR | NEW/UNWORN CONDITION
We are excited to offer the very first Tudor Black Bay 41 2023 available for sale on the open market, just 6 days following its well-received launch in Geneva at Watches and Wonders 2023. This piece is supplied brand new with case-back sticker still in-place and has never been worn. Fitted to Tudors' 3 link rivet-style bracelet and offered with full set boxes and paperwork. We proudly call ourselves 'Beat The Waitlist', and as one of the first available in the world to buy and wear the same day, this is your chance to beat the Tudor waitlist which will likely be at least 6 months at your local AD.
The movement housed in this piece is the first Black Bay to receive the Master Chronometer certification, a level above COSC. Some of the highlights of METAS-certified watches are that they are tested with the movement inside the watch (not just the movement itself), and that magnetic resistance is a big part of the certification’s promise.
Upgrades from the previous generation include small dial changes; a minute hand with a pinched end right before it connects to the central axis point. In fact, the entire Black Bay case has been redesigned and while it maintains a similar 41mm-wide size, it looks a very different watch. The steel case for this new-generation Black Bay is the best the collection has ever had. The previous-generation Black Bay wore larger and had more visual mass. The new model is a bit thinner and has less prominent lugs that help the watch wear a bit smaller and more comfortably. The bezel edging and crown are totally new, as is the dial. The bracelet uses a very refined “T-fit” micro-adjust system in the clasp which, is similar to what you get on some Rolex watches and gives a full 8mm of adjustment space.
ONE HIGH STANDARD: Fit for me, fit for you policy
Our team is made of up of watch enthusiasts, for us working in this industry and with these timepieces is a privilege and an indulgence of a passion. As such our founder; Vinny implemented the "Fit for me, fit for you policy". This means that we are now very picky with the pieces we choose to offer to our clients and we only buy watches that would be fit for our own collections because why should we have a different or lower standard for our clients?
So what does this mean in practice? How high are our standards? You can now rest assured that when buying from Beat The Waitlist EVERY piece will meet the following enthusiast-level standards:
a) No Rolex newer 5 years old or newer we would ever offer for sale that we believe has been polished by machine.
b) No watch, whatever the age, brand or price point, we will ever offer for sale that we believe has been over polished or polished/refinished poorly. Our founder Vinny can't stand this and therefore just wont handle them. Over polished watches lose their premium aesthetic, look awful and are poor as long-term investments.
c)All watches 5 years old or newer will be provided as full set with original boxes and paperwork because there is no reason they should be missing at such age.
d)All watches 5 years old or newer will be provided with FULL FACTORY SIZE issued bracelets with all removed links provided in the set.
