King of Mandopop Jay Chou Bewitches Tudor

After the success of last year’s Netflix magic travelogue show J-Style Trip, King of Mandopop and multi-hyphenate Jay Chou is at it once again with a different set of tricks up his sleeves to celebrate Tudor’s #BornToDare spirit. After performing in various cities including Paris, Innsbruck, Tokyo and a pit stop in Singapore, Tudor ambassador Chou finds himself in a Tudor boutique for his latest magical destination.

Without giving away too much, the tricks seen in the film were performed by Chou live on set. Not wanting to reveal his secrets, just like a true magician, the singer asked all production crew to leave the set when he performed the counter display trick, keeping only the cameraman with him.

Chou’s partner in crime for the commercial-style short film is the 2021 Tudor Black Bay Chrono novelty. The 2021 edition retains largely the same Black Bay aesthetic with the “Snowflake” hand and comes in either a “panda” or “reverse panda” configuration. The big news however is a reworked case that sees a slight reduction in thickness.

After scouring and cross-referencing various platforms, the thickness of the Black Bay Chrono measures 14.4mm thick, down from the original 2017 version which measured 14.9mm thick between the callipers. Tudor made a few position adjustments to the Manufacture Chronograph Calibre MT 5813, shifting the dial closer to the sapphire crystal which resulted in a slimmer profile that feels more balanced on the wrist.

The Tudor Black Bay Chrono is available in three different strap options — a steel bracelet with polished and satin finish, black leather strap with removable bund or black jacquard-woven fabric strap.
