The Swiss watchmaker has had a long-standing relationship with Beckham that began in 2017 when the former professional soccer player was unveiled as the new face of the brand. Before the club’s inception, the watchmaker also ​​presented him with a unique Tudor Pelagos model that bears the Inter Miami CF crest on the dial, a watch that Beckham has worn for every match.

Following news of the partnership and in a surprise launch just before this year’s edition of the Watches & Wonders fair next month, Tudor has released the Black Bay Chrono “Pink,” a model that exemplifies a departure from the brand’s typical military aesthetic and which is based on a watch created for Taiwanese singer and musician and Tudor ambassador Jay Chou.

The new chronograph, which features Inter Miami’s signature team color, has a pink domed dial which contrasts with the black sub-dials and black anodized aluminum bezel insert. Powered by a Manufacture Calibre MT5813 movement, the watch has a 41mm 316L stainless-steel case and a matching five-link bracelet with a T-fit clasp (the first time it has been utilized within the Black Bay Chrono collection).
