Thanks for this great review Watchmavan! Very detailed en still fun to
Read. Nice to read. Iím considering a 58 now to accompagnie my sub instead of an explorer. One question: how does the BB 58 wear compared to the explorer? For now i think my explorer 2 40mm is my most comfortable watch, but the BB 58 must be comfortable too?

Thanks Tom

Black Bay Fifty-eight review
 
Thanks for the positive feedback. Very comfortable but is any watch as comfortable as an Explorer? It wears bigger than its dimensions due to the still straight up Black Bay design.

The Explorer II is 42mm or was there a 40mm version?

Nice review! :thumbsup:

I might have mentioned in the text that the rivets are cosmetic (not true rivets). :cheers:

Yes. I assumed this was well known as it was introduced with plenty of commentary with the first MT calibre.

Great review. I sold my original BB in order to buy the newer 58. I was waiting 3 months for my local AD to get one in stock, love it.

Thanks. I also had the original BB ETA. Love the 58. It's a keeper.

As many others have commented, great review. Your writing and photography are top notch. Bravo!

I was smitten by the 58 based on several reviews (very few as eloquently written as yours), but after trying the 58 back to back on my wrist with the 41, I chose the 41. Yes, it's "bulkier", but I don't find the extra bulk a distraction after the watch bracelet was properly sized, and like the "presence" on the wrist. I also agree that the 58's thinner case is a benefit, but again the 41 only disturbed me when looking at it from the side. On the wrist, under a cuff, the "side slab" isn't visible. With more casual wear it is visible, but again, for me, the extra bulk isn't an issue, and to some degree I think it complements the larger size case.
