Tudor Black Bay 58

While the Rolex/Tudor Pepsi’s have everyone’s attention, the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight is very nice (especially on rivet style bracelet).

I'm very happy to see a smaller size BB option. Only wish they'd used the rose on the dial...

I don't have a Tudor, but I have got to say, they rock. I think they are the most dynamic watch company right now.

I wish they had kept the white filling on the bezel (as with BBN) and went back to the rose logo for this model...

It's great and I can't decide between the bracelet or leather. I'm usually a bracelet guy but on this one I think I may be leaning slightly towards the leather.

I'm going with the bracelet, can always source a leather band later on.

They're gorgeous, I recently picked up the blue bezel version with the leather strap. Unique and retro, pretty cool.

Pic by Hodinkee:
here is the most important part:

The Movement
Caliber: MT5402
Functions: Hours, minutes, seconds
Diameter: 26mm
Thickness: 4.99mm
Power Reserve: 70 hours
Winding: Automatic
Frequency: 4 Hz (28,800)
Jewels: 27
COSC Chronometer Certified

the thickness of the movement is thinner than the rolex counterpart 3130 whilst having a 22 hour longer power reserve. in fact it is over 1 mm thinner. that means the 12.33 mm rumored thickness is probably true.

all this for $3,200 msrp.

i think tudor absolutely hit a home run with this one.

I really love this watch but the diameter of the case just doesn't work with my small wrist. Such a pity as it's a wonderful watch indeed and well priced.

Agree.

While owning an ETA BB is a novelty, the new Tudor's are far more desirable IMHO.

It's as if Tudor picked up where Rolex left off many years ago.

And this is a brilliant product strategy.

the non lacquered crown to me is an improvement as well. seems like the bb is no longer using the old crown.
