Re: Black Bay GMT, 58, S&G & Tudor 1926 First Impressions

My buddy John and I are attending the local Rolex / Tudor preview on Wednesday, so I’ll check this sucker out. I really don’t understand the crown design, other than that they wanted to be different. The “guts” of the crown are basically like the other Rolex stuff. It comes from the historic 7924 "...

I read 47.5 LTL. It's about the size of a 14060, which for me is perfect.

Re: Black Bay GMT, 58, S&G & Tudor 1926 First Impressions

My only minor gripe with the BB58 is the gilt coloring on the bezel insert, which doesn't seem so pronounced in these pics. The dimensions are perfect to me, I always loved the BB but found the dimensions awkward. I'll definitely get one on bracelet when they're available.

Re: How do you guys delineate between an "Homage" vs. Copy/Ripoff?

To me, a homage is a watch like the Tudor Black Bay or the Seiko SBDX019, watches made by the original company that pay homage to a watch or watches from their own past. Another company copying a design is just a copy. I've owned an MKII Kingston, so I'm not against them per se, but I still consider...

Re: New Hamilton Khaki Field Reissue

Thinking about picking one of these up but would love to hear an update from you guys that got one. Still just as good on day 30 or does the fauxtina get old? Matt, the lume on this one is really well done IMO. It does look like lightly aged tritium, but it's not overdone and doesn't look contrived...

Re: Every Presage from Baselworld 2018

Love the look and profile of the SJE073. I think I read somewhere it's over $2K, which may be a hard sell for Presage, but I'm sure they'll sell the limited number.

It's a LE of 1881 but I haven't seen the price. It's 40.5mm with I think a 47mm LTL.

Edit: just saw Joe's post with the Hodinkee link. $2200??? That's crazy.
