Talking Watches With Todd Levin. The Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” with its available fabric strap left , steel bracelet center , and synthetic “soft touch” strap right. So, it’s a Black Bay Fifty-Eight with a lovely, rich blue used for both the dial and the bezel.

More to come once we get to see this blue beauty in the metal.
