Interesting. I doubt Tudor will go back to Rolex style cases, but maybe a new dial/hands with the BB or BB58 case. I also doubt they'll add a cyclops - none of their modern dated watches for sale in the US have one.

All of that said, I believe they still market a Date-Day in Asia with a 36mm Rolex style case and a cyclops over the date, so :shrug: .

The classic case/bezel just kills any version of the BB. That era of Sub is just perfect for me (gloss/matte/whatever dial).
Agreed, lets hope they do but without the faux rivet bracelet.

I wouldn’t mind seeing a BB or BB58 black dial/black bezel without the gilt. Yeah, I know, that turns it into a Sub wannabe, but I’d still like it.

BB58 with no gilt, a good crown and no stupid river bracelets, and they’d have my money in seconds.

That bezel is more of a Sub bezel than a BB bezel

Doesn’t matter. We won’t be able to get one for at least a year, then it will be MSRP or over.

It's been less than a year since the BB58 hit dealers, and they're already trading under MSRP in mint condition.

Don’t know if it’s the reflection, but it seems ridiculously deep

Tudor can tease all they want, and they do make some great watches. But, if they can't produce, what's the point? I still haven't seen a GMT in the flesh at any of the half dozen Rolex/Tudor dealers in the capital of one of the richest countries on Earth.

The GMT is having date wheel issues, there’s a thread on WUS on the subject.
I would think that may be the case for the unavailability, Rolex May be working on the problem.

All other tudors including the BB58 have became widely available after the first first months of frenzy (at least here in Italy)

Supposedly this is the "Submariner" being released by Tudor. I can't confirm or deny, I can only hope it's not true.

Yep, and somehow Tudor will find a way to make it in every color in the rainbow.

If they release a seiko homage after hinting at a Tudor sub reissue that will be pretty funny :mrgreen:

That photo is the so-called early prototype so I’m guessing 36mm with long lugs. I’m sure it’ll look better than the north face.

I find it funny as well. Tudor trolling the internet.

Meanwhile most AD's still can't keep the BB58 and BB GMT in stock, so they don't have huge motivation to push out a bunch of releases today, but who knows....
