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? 馃槈馃檪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 !!!
Thanks Tom,the lady I spoke to at the 2nd branch of the Tudor AD said she could take a payment over the phone and have someone deliver the BB 58 to my house. I asked if they could remove a couple of links from the bracelet before they deliver it? She said that she could but that the watch couldn't be returned for a refund if she altered it. I said maybe it would be better then if she sent it to the AD branch near my house so that I could come in and they could size the bracelet for me. She said that was fine and the watch will be at my local branch tomorrow if I want to pick it up
馃檪






It is interesting to see the BB 58 bracelet in comparison to the one on the original 1958 Tudor "Big Crown" Submariner. They both have they both have that step-down tapering.

Yowza sir, so are you actually thinking of getting this one? 馃槸o_O:D

From here it sounds like you are serious, but am not 100% sure.
I mean can you imagine this in the collection True? It would be
amazing I think. Almost like reaching back into the past with the
whole style, and even cool bracelet like you are pointing out. 馃槑

This is exciting news if true True ! But still fun even if it isn't,
so thank you !!!

Don't mention it sir. 馃檪

That's interesting huh?! 馃槻So am wondering what that means, will it just
be difficult to come by?! Or will it not be being made any more I wonder. 馃槮

like this terrific TUDOR. However, am both stunned, along
with ultra happy, you went with the BB !

A very very merry, happy, and HUGE congrats here 2 U sir !!! 馃巺

Thanks Tom! I wore my Invicta 8928ob to shovel snow today. We got a blizzard last night and the power went off at 3:40 AM so it was freezing when I woke up because it was -5 outside. Luckily the power came back at the same time as I woke up,5am. Merry Christmas!

Hey Tom I found this on the Rolex Forum,thought I would share it with you. Looks like 58 was the last year without crown guards.

My Black Bay 58


James Bond's ref6538





馃槷馃槑 You are very welcome sir, and wow, that lume could
have helped Santa through the blizzard I bet. 馃巺 Holy cow !

Speaking of holy cow, that is beyond cool finding that out
about the crown guards as well. 馃馃槈 Honestly didn鈥檛 even
realize sir. Or how much it changes up the watches actually.
Man, it鈥檚 crazy how we are always learning new things True !
Thank YOU, and thanks a ton for the look at your astonishing
new stunner again too !!! ..Whoa !

Thanks Tom! I love this watch but I just wish it had drilled lugs like a 1958 Submariner. That would make strap changes a breeze.

That is an ideal size in my opinion. The esthetics, function, and quality of the 58 sum it up for me, maybe someday I'll see how it owns.
Congratulations True, that looks great brother. Have a nice warm weekend.
