Re: WRUW 18 Aug 18

Day 2 with the BB58. Tudor did a great job with this. I'm not an accuracy freak, but I'm impressed with +2 over the last 24 hours.

Find me one too :-)
Thanks! I think this one is a keeper, but I am still on a list for one, so I can always snag it if my name comes up before you get one.

Re: 58

Looks amazing. Absolute home run for Tudor. I'm actually not sure there is anything they could do to this watch to make it any better, except drilled lugs. I need one.

Re: 58

Great photos. The general size and shape of the 58 and Explorer look spot on! Looks like the main difference is that the explorer has a slightly thinner mid-case and more bulging case back. That's accurate. The Explorer is more svelte than the 58, but of course the 58 is very svelte as far as diver...

Here are a couple comparison shots with the 39mm Explorer. The BB58 is a bit chunkier.

Re: Fri Aug 17 - WRUW

BB58 just arrived. Hope to get some time for proper pics and thoughts later, but a quick wrist shot for now. First impression is it seems perfect.

Re: Ever sold a watch because of weight?

I always wore my U1s on isofrane, so the weight wasn't bad, but I did end up selling my last one because it felt too big. I too have moved to smaller watches.

Re: Hey all. Greenhorn here.

Welcome. Another Seiko fan here, I wear an SBDX019 daily and have an 007J that I rarely wear, but having bought and sold about 10 of them, I decided to just keep this one.

Re: Nato Buying Guide

Then only reason I'd buy anything but a Toxic any more is if I need a specific color and Terry didn't have it. No other reason to even look elsewhere IMO.

Re: 58

Looks amazing!!! As a 1 watch, no date would be a killer for me though. I was always fanatical about having date watches, but then daily wore a Speedy for a year and it was freeing. Now I have trained myself to remember the date in the morning. I've heard of date fanatics actually using the Speedy'...

I like the dial on the chrono, but overall I think I prefer the older design. I almost picked up a silver 47040 back when you get them for $6K.

Looks like 3 tone to me. I'd like it better if they'd stuck with two tones - black/bronze OR blue/bronze.

Re: despite what the watch industry says is trendy, does anyone actually own/like two-tone?

One of my first watches was a two tone Navitimer, and I really liked it. It was on leather, so at least it wasn't on a blingy bracelet. I've also had a couple Golden Tunas. None of them lasted long though. In general I'm not a big fan of two tone, but there are several in this thread I like.

Re: Anyone ever heard of FEICES

:lol: Whoever they are, they didn't research the name very well, who would call their watch something so close to feces? Shinola comes to mind. Their site's really slow too, I couldn't be bothered to get past the first page, but everything I saw looked like a direct copy of either a Nomos or Junghans.
