Tudor BB58 comparison pics

Post by Joeprez » Mon Oct 15, 2018 6:36 pm

As it may be apparent by my Instagram and the recent WRUWS, I'm really enjoy the 58. It is as comfortable as the Speedy for daily wear, and it's just a plain beauty. The size is truly perfect for me. The Speedy and the PO are keepers for me, but this one fits me better (relax, I'm keeping the Omega's). Winding the watch feels very nice, fit and finish is great, certainly punches above its weight. I haven't tested the 70 hours power reserve because it haven't left my wrist :grin:

So, without further ado:

Vs Speedy:

Wears pretty similar, but still the BB58 wears a little smaller. L2L is shorter so the BB58 wears even better on a nato than the Speedy does. Similar thickness too.

Vs PO:

PO is larger, thicker and heavier. However, that doesn't show on the picture below. I like how the PO fits me, the Tudor wears smaller and lighter.

Image

Vs Sinn 556

Sinn dial is bigger, but the case wears smaller than the case on the BB58.

Two more for fun:

Congrats joe! It is one of the best new watches out there. What the black bats should have been size wise.

1) love your orange bezel PO
2) need Tudor to release more variations in the 58
3) great post thanks for the comparisons!

I tried it on last week and really liked it, and I'm not usually a Tudor/Rolex guy. It definitely did wear a little smaller than the Speedmaster, though

Holding off from picking up the 58 in case they release other variations but it's so tempting. Very helpful comparison pix. Thanks for posting, Joe.

Great comaparo pics! I’m wearing a speedy pro right now and would not have imagined that the 58 would wear smaller...

Great watch at twice the price .. might start seriously considering those.

Thanks!

Great photos Joe, I echo your sentiment. Here are a couple of pics I snapped a few months ago when I got the 58. My Speedy Pro is also a keeper, but has not found much wrist time since getting the Tudor. Thought it would be my "strap watch", but I have been enjoying the 58 on NATO's recently. The Speedy is definitely more versatile though as it works on any color of strap. The gold on the Tudor makes it work well with greens, browns and black, but not so much with gray or blue.

Here it is between an SKX009 and SKX013.

Thanks for the comments! I always find comparison pics very useful for my buying process, just wanted to do the same for anyone still in the fence.

Thanks for posting your pictures Nick, interesting comparison with the 007 and 013 (the 013 looks smaller than I thought it would be).

I'm very happy with the watches I have right now. Beside wanting another Seiko to put on the camo canvas strap I picked up from Chris recently, I would like to try a couple of Sinns and a Doxa (I've never had one) and eventually add back the Polar Explorer II. I like color, so a Pepsi GMT would be the shit, but not at today's prices.

If anyone needs anymore pictures or have any other questions, let me know. I'm happy to help.

Great group of watches. The PADI looked huge next to it.

It sure does... the NAFT is a strange watch for me, it's amazing how good it feels on my wrist despite it size.
