Photos on a few of my straps since there aren’t really strap photos out there on this. This will mainly live on the bracelet although I really like it on the Erika strap.

The fact that the caseback is dead flat and doesn’t protrude like some watches keeps it nice and low with a NATO on.

^ Perfect! Looks great on the tan straps. You gotta try the real James Bond regimental nato.

Love those strap photos!

Could you grab one on nato on wrist, with the angle being side profile with the 6 o’clock side facing the camera please?

Had it back on the bracelet, but because you asked nicely.

Speedy Pro on ShizNit for reference as it is a great NATO Watch IMHO. It does have a bulging caseback though so you can see the strap from the side.

Thanks all


Yes, it is 20mm.
Thickness is 11.9mm
L to L is 47.6mm
Bezel exactly 39mm

For comparison , a 5 digit Rolex Sub:
Lug width 20mm
Thickness 12.3mm
L to L at 48mm
Bezel is 39.5mm

Thanks! I love my original ETA burgunday BB but this new 58 looks fantastic. Easily the best one they've come out with so far IMO. Can't wait for the variations :mrgreen:

For me, those specs/measurements are perfect! I want one.
I recently purchased a cheap micro and it has reminded me that I can't wear thick heavy large watches.

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

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 divers go.

They did an excellent job with the new smaller movement to get that side profile.

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 for me. I need one.
