A write-up of my beloved Black Bay 58!

Wrote my first ever article for The Hour Glass and it’s on the BB58! One of my favourite watches to be released this year. Hope you folks enjoy :)

Indeed. A GMT or a blue Black Bay with blue dial and bezel would be killer. And thanks.

I can't wait for the BB 58 GMT. I'll be on the wait list as soon as it's released at a Basel.

I do really like this version of the Black Bay line. Proportions are better than the main line of Black Bays. I would love it if they came out with all the color variations on this model size!

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is the difference between a 58 and an S&G?

I really enjoyed this write up. My bank account doesn't like me to read article like these.
