Introducing The Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925, With A Silver Case & Sapphire Caseback
You had me at "Taupe Black Bay."

The Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925 is Tudor's first-ever dive watch with a silver case (and one of two new precious metal Black Bay Fifty-Eight watches released today). It pairs that case with a warm taupe dial and bezel, which give the watch a look that is slightly softer overall than your usual steel-and-black diver. This isn't a watch that hits you over the head with how awesome and technical it is – rather, it whispers about how sophisticated and smart it is.

The silver alloy case has the same general profile as that of earlier BB58 models (including the OG and last year's Navy Blue), though it's a hair thicker at 12.7mm, versus 11.9mm. This is for good reason, though: This Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925 has a sapphire display back, letting you see the MT5400 manufacture movement inside.

I'm curious to see how they did the sterling case. The specs say the cases are made from a 'Tudor proprietary alloy' apparently tough enough to rate 200 M of water resistance - be interesting to see how it's formulated.

I just passed up on a two-tone Tudor Black Bay because they use "gold-capped" center links on the bracelet. And conjurer don't play that shit.
Rolex did that too up until the six digit Daytona. Instead of capped, Rolex used bars of gold in the inset stainless and heated one and froze the other to allow the bar to adhere via tension in the end links and the clasp.
