Strolled past the AD and had a peek in the window at it today (Moody's in Nantwich), didn't dare go in for fear of making a purchase but I fear it's only a matter of time :(....

Look out for a pre-owned model, regularly come up on TZUK

They are too nice not to have one mind :rolleyes:

Brilliant. 

You know it males sense. 

It really doesn't though does it! :laugh:

 

Was out with a couple of friends (none of my mates are "watchy") and they simply cannot comprehend spending this ammount of money on a watch... I'd have to agree!*

I never disclose what I pay for watches. It's easier that way. :yes:

I typically wouldn't either but one was my brother, he's persistent and I can't lie to him... His guesses started at "about two hundred quid"

Just over a month of ownership so my thoughts so far, very simply...

I love wearing it.

I love just looking at it.

It's very understated, goes unnoticed.

Quality & finish is exceptional.

Crown & bezel action / feel is sublime.

 

Regrets...

It cost an effing lot of money.

Should have got the bracelet AND the leather, will cost a fortune in retrospect :(

Love love love those snowflake hands. If take a Tudor over a Rolex any and every day of the week. Mercedes hands make me puke.

The forum comprehensively failed to talk you out of it then?

I love it that a watch enthusiast posts on a forum full of watch enthusiasts, regarding a watch that's widely viewed as a modern classic asking to be dissuaded from purchasing said watch. We all knew how this would end.

Lovely watch though :thumbsup:

My only negative is the thickness/depth.  Though that's still not enough to put me off buying the GMT.

It probably is a "poor mans" Rolex but who cares about that stigma. I have a 2002 Rolex GMT Pepsi, personally think the Tudor is superior. 

OOps, didn't realize I was catching up with two month old posts.  Just concurring with others that 

a) It's no longer a "poor man's Rolex," Tudor have come into their own in the last decade or more, and

b) I've heard it wears a bit chunky on some men's wrists, clearly the BB58 resolved that with the 39mm case size. :naughty:

... It is a stunner though and if Tudor did a scaled down 38 or 39 version I'd be the first in the queue

Not sure the BB58 is a "scaled down version" (lots of gold and rose gold, a wee bit overdone for my taste), but they seem to be "getting the memo" about the "slab sides."

Oops....

On the hunt for a bracelet, mailed the AD for a price.... Dreading the answer!

Perhaps as you JUST bought the watch they might do you the courtesy of a great deal on it? Crossed fingers for ya.... Perhaps you should ask about their new G10 nylon straps, too. For summer.

Im a poor man, wouldn't buy a Roly if I could afford one though!

Size & presence is perfect even on my skinny wrist 

The latest bb58 is adorable but I have hesitations about how well it will age with the gold markers etc...

Oops indeed!

Got a black nylon with it :thumbsup:
