    Is it possible to get a black bezel for the Tudor Black Bay?

    Hi all,

    I really like the looks of the Tudor Black Bay, but I'm not crazy about the red bezel... Do you guys know, does Tudor sell a black bezel, would the Pelagos' bezel fit? Do you guys know of any places I could get a custom bezel/one that would fit the Black Bay?

    Thanks!

    Wow, you waited a whole two hours for a response. Such patience.

    I don't think you need a whole new bezel, just an insert. Maybe an insert from the pelagos would fit, maybe not. Contact Tudor, see what they say.

    Hahaha, yeah thanks. I guess I'll get in touch with them then.

    The Tudor Black Bay is 41mm vs. the 40mm of the Rolex Submariner, so aftermarket bezel inserts from a Rolex won't fit. The Tudor Pelagos is 42mm, as is the Tudor Heritage Chronograph (which has a 12 hour insert in any case), and I don't think Tudor makes another 41mm watch which uses bezel inserts, so my guess is that you won't have much luck on this. But, there do seem to be a number of people who have expressed an interest in replacing the insert on the Black Bay with a black one.

    P.S. Where are you planning on getting the Black Bay from? I see you're in San Diego as well, and there aren't any Tudor ADs in the US at the moment, although I've heard rumors of Rolex reintroducing Tudor to a limited number of Rolex ADs in the near future. An alternative is to cross the border and get one from one of the Tudor ADs in Tijuana. I was planning on getting one when I'm in Europe next month.
