This also means that Tudor watches are not afraid of any test, and can further ensure the excellent quality of Tudor watches by obtaining the certification of this independent authority.
Fully accredited by independent bodies to ensure compliance with high standards
The Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) Master Chronometer precision timepiece certification covers a wide range of content, and comprehensively examines many important properties of the watch, including travel time accuracy, anti-magnetic ability, waterproof performance and power reserve. The certification requirements are particularly strict, and the accuracy of travel time is the primary consideration. The certification requires that the daily average travel time error of a watch should not exceed 5 seconds (0+5), which is a further reduction of 5 seconds compared with the Swiss Official Observatory Certification (COSC) for a single movement’s daily average error standard (-4 +6). seconds, which is 1 second less than the general internal standard (-2 +4) of Tudor for the brand’s original movement. The certification also requires the watch to maintain accurate travel time in a high magnetic field environment of 15,000 gauss. In addition, the waterproof performance and power reserve of each Master Chronometer Certified Watch must comply with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 22810:2010 standard. Before obtaining this certification, the watch must meet two prerequisites: the watch is made in Switzerland and meets Swiss-made standards; the movement must be certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC).
Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology Accreditation Standards and Tests
The Tudor Biwan Ceramic Watch has successfully obtained the certification of the Master Chronometer Precision Timepiece. The certification prerequisites and the rigorous tests it has undergone are summarized as follows:
Made in Switzerland
Certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC)
In two temperature ranges, six positions and two different power reserves of 100% and 33%, the watch is always accurate
Resistant to 15,000 gauss magnetic field interference, the watch always runs smoothly and travels accurately
The watch is water-resistant to 200 meters (660 feet) and is water-resistant according to ISO 22810:2010
70 hours power reserve
The Tudor Black Bay Ceramic watch cleverly combines the brand’s classic aesthetics with modern high-tech details, showing a unique style. The one-piece matte black ceramic case is sandblasted, contrasting with the mirror-polished beveled edges, and the contours are even more striking.

The movement is equipped with a non-magnetic silicon hairspring, and the two sides of the inertia fine-tuning balance wheel are fixed with solid horizontal splints to ensure stability and precision, and the travel time error is only within 5 seconds (0+5).
Another notable feature of the original Tudor movement MT5602-1U is its 70-hour power reserve certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), allowing the wearer to “worry-free weekend”. In other words, if you take off your watch on Friday night, you can wear it on your wrist on Monday morning and use it without rewinding. Give it your “work time” and give yourself your “break time” back.
