Not sure if everybody had time to see this new Tudor already.

It's the new Black Bay Fifty-Eight. Which pays tribute to Tudor's first
diver known as Big Crown from 1958. With just some of the many
details including a 39mm stainless steel case, 200M WR, sapphire
crystal, neat blue dial, along with diver's bezel, Calibre MT5402
movement, stainless steel bracelet, blue 'soft touch' leather, along
with fabric strap too.

Have a few pictures right here...

Ya know what? I like them budget watches that are cheap and fill that void, but this one fills several voids, especially the pocketbook void. I think it’s worth it though.

I do like most of what Tudor has done.
That said and not to detract from Tom's thread, I do prefer this earlier BB58 offering

😄 Budget watches are terrific Trip, and actually hard to beat when
you think about it. Seriously, there are so many beautiful blue divers
out there it's almost immeasurable. Although I really do like it, just
knowing that there are nearly an infinite amount of similar divers
out there makes me happy. 🙂 Just the fact that it gets everyone
interested in looking at (not necessarily buying) a blue dialed/bezeled
watch is neat.

Steve, that Black Bay 58 you are showing is breathtaking as well,
and you know didn't even realize they had the '58' name either to
tell you the truth ! 😵 Had thought this blue dialed version was
paying tribute to a certain watch. Or basically one with the look,
and super cool blue theme. But the black, and gold together
with the stainless on this beauty is out of this world awesome
as well ! 😮

Thanks a lot just for chiming in you two !!

Just can't get past that hand set. Or where the price is set...:cry:
Am with you Forza. 😉 Just is neat seeing new variations, or models.
Plus what's cool, and like I was saying to Trip, is that just the look. Or
color combination can send you out in on a great adventure just to look
for a similar feeling, or designed watch. (y) Like you are saying, these
prices can kind of be like road blocks. But if we are not lucky enough
to experience a beauty like these above. The options out there are
just about endless. Love that.

Thanks a ton for your thoughts sir !

So today I called my local Rolex/Tudor AD and asked how long does it takes to get a BB 58 39mm and the guy there told me I had to come into the store and talk to someone and after that it was something like a 9 month just to get on a waiting list and about 12 months to actually get one. At least I think that is what he said. Then he said their other branch really had all the Tudors and I should call there If I want more info. So I called the other branch and ask the same question and a lady there tells me it just so happens that a Tudor Black Bay 58 "hit the case in the case 10 minutes ago". Wow! How long do you think it will be there?

Not too long if you act fast
Thanks.I didn't now that you could just find one on the self in stores. Thought you had to order them,if they let you,lol.

I found a color video comparing The BB 58 with a vintage Tudor sub made in 1980.

It'll be gone for Christmas. The BB 58 is solid, the case size keeps me interested. I checked out the BB line and the simple stainless was the one for me, but the case thickness put it to rest for me; the 58 on the other wrist is right on, but not stainless model, yet. That bg^^^ is beautiful but too flashy for what I want in that watch. They're all very nice looking.

Well it sounds like you had a busy, along with extremely cool day
there then True ! (y)😎 That is something what someone who
wants one of these beauties has to go through evidently. 😮 I
actually did think you could go to a Rolex/Tudor AD, and pick
up one of these. I mean what are all those watches in both the
windows, and displays? Holograms ! 😄

Seriously though, it is really terrific learning all of this, and just
hearing about your experience. Loved watching your videos, as
well as checking out the links too ! 😉 ..It’s fascinating to see
the onew watches together with the old, and enjoy the neat
similarities, and differences. Thanks very much True !!!

Those are pretty cool but I like the Black Bay 58 better. I love the vintage vibes of the gold on black and the red marker like the 54 Turn-O-Graph below.

Thanks Tom,check out this deep dive into Tudor Submariners.

You are very welcome ! (y) Yowza, incredible stuff, all of it, or them !!! 😀

Actually enjoy all of these watches so much it's not even funny. Just finding
out new things about the different watches is awesome. Plus I swear, you
never stop learning right?! ..Yeah, the BB58 is a stunner really. It's is new,
but takes the best of what watches were like years ago, and perfects it
True. 😉

By the way, thank YOU once again !!!

Love the all original thing True ! :D You never really think about how
many vintage watches will have replacement parts. But that one has
the original everything, and how about the lived in thing? Or it having
been worn? 😉🙂Honestly think that adds even more personality to
this looker !

By the way, actually think the hands on Tudors are phenomenal, and
actually always thought they were one of the main highlights actually. (y)

THX a ton once again for all of these links, along with videos here sir !!!
