I wonder if there's a thread for gmt owners that haven't had the issue. I've only seen the ones that state there is a problem

I question the unstated context that warranted that price.

She confirmed my watch now had 3.5 years warranty from date of purchase.
Thank you for that information :)

I just got 8 years on my new Tudor 1926. 5 from Tudor and 3 years extended thrown in by the AD as part of the deal.

Doesn't make Grady's comments wrong. We have no way of knowing the % of problem watches, regardless of the brand or issue.
Well, if we're interpreting Grady's comment literally to mean that 51% or more of owners don't have a problem, then the GMT issue doesn't contradict it. I read his intent as something more comprehensive than that, though.

Anecdotal evidence isn't conclusive, but that doesn't mean it's irrelevant. There are enough reports for us to reasonably conclude that the date issue is, at the very least, not insignificantly rare. I suspect Rolex would have made good regardless of an active warranty, but it's nice to have it in writing when issues like this can sometimes occur.

Can't disagree with that.

Has anybody seen any announcement from Tudor on the warranty extension?

All the discussion I've seen appears to be sourced from the Millenial Watches post?

Before I purchase online (b/c can't get the GMT from any local ADs), I would like to get some comfort by seeing something directly from Tudor.

Scroll to the bottom of the tudor official website, and click tudor guarantee. It's all there..

How often do us users use the warranty anyway. The price is the killer
