I think the fake rivet style bracelet sucks, but that GMT would look good on a RubberB/Everest fitted rubber strap.

Vintage inspired watch on a modern integrated rubber bracelet? No way.

Either way I think the strap is the way to go. The rivet look bracelets are weird looking,

I agree. It looks great on leather + the bracelet sucks.
Easy choice.

Brett

Any idea when you expect the BB58’s to come in stock? BTW I just placed a deposit on your site.
Not just yet, but let me send an e-mail and see if they can tell me. It might be a little while before we hear back since it's late at night there.
Thanks
:cheers:
I'm being told summer for the GMTs, but that's all they know for now, sorry. I'd guess summer for the BB58s too.
Brett, we can't PM you through here any more??

Before I get excited about the BB58, does anyone know the lug width for sure?
Did we ever get an answer?

Anything besides 19mm is good to go.

20mm seems the natural choice.

According to an article at Monochrome (although they mistakenly called it 'lug to lug'):

Bracelet: riveted stainless steel bracelet with polished and satin finishes and folding clasp and safety catch- brown leather strap - black fabric strap with gold band - lug to lug 20mm

Using the online photos and extrapolating measurements knowing the width is 39, the lug width is 20 and lug to lug is about 47.

In other words, it's the perfect size for a diver. With no crown guards and a flat back, it should wear better than a 14060m. :thumbsup:

One of the reviews said it wears like 14060, which is perfect. I'm psyched for this one, I think it's what the BB should have been all along.

The bracelet doesn’t suck. It’s nice, well made and comfortable with good proportions to the case. You may or may not like the rivets but the bracelet doesn’t suck. I personally was not a fan of the rivets, i did prefer the first Bracelet on my Red B.B. I used to own. But to be honest I don’t even notice the rivets on mine.

I will be trying the Everest on the gmt for sure. Image

I was a rivet hater but it's one of those things that isn't great in macro, but is fine in person.

39mm, <12mm tall, 20mm lugs and 47mm L2L... sounds like a dream come true. I bought an original red black bay and loved it except for the tall slab sides. Beautiful watch. I was very tempted with the blue dial and the black gilt, now I’m going to have to give in. I was set on not buying a watch until end of summer/fall as I wanted another speedy, but the new BB58 has taken its spot.

I don’t mind the rivet bracelet at all.

Imagine how much better it would be with a Triplock crown like the old Tudors used.

Edit: I’m glad to hear the rivets are a non issue.

If it really wears like a 14060 that’s awesome.

Want.

My vintage Tudor had twinlock, two dots underneath.

Is that a fitted end leather though? Maybe that is how they solved it, but that only works with the OEM strap. I would like to see it without a strap or bracelet to see where the lug holes are.
