Looks great, Tudor will sell a lot of these, really cool watch for the money.

For me, I will pass... I find my Sinn 104 with blue dial and the new Seamaster more interesting for a blue dial watch. Of course, if I didn't have the OG BB58, I may think differently.

Now, if Tudor releases an LE with piss lume in the future.... :love:

Have been offered one by an AD. Thinking hard about it. Although I’m leaning towards holding the course on an original BB58.

Seems like Tudor did something unique. ADs actually got them (albeit small amounts, i.e, 1-2) for launch!

Novel concept. Have something available at launch. LOL.

That’s what I’m seeing. Wasn’t a fan of that blue either

IMHO - Tudors are all about blue no-date flakes.

Is it tomorrow yet?

And I am sure it will be an easy flip shortly if you don't like it....

From WUS, I like it overall but I really don't care for the snowflake hands. I could like some lollipop style hands though... but it does not matter since I can't afford one... :shrug:

Probably in the minority around here, but I wish it had a date.

It is refreshing. I'll bet that this would have been announced at Basel followed by the typical few months wait. Since it's now a few months from when Basel would have been held, this tracks pretty closely to that.

In case anyone wants to compare, here's a couple of pictures of my BB41 blue dial, one in sun and one in shade. The 41's dial is a gloss finish, while this new BB seems to be matte or satin (like the other BB diver offerings). But I think the blue is pretty close.

I think they nailed the shade of blue. Tudor can milk the 58 line for the next few years and sell a ton of watches. Assuming they will eventually get around to an all black/silver version, GMT, etc...

Nice modern version of this.

I have to say I like this vintage model a lot better. The square lume plot on the second hand matches the square markers better than the round markets on the BB, and the fat triangle at '12', beefier bezel, and the crown guards give the watch a much sportier feel IMO.

The new blue BB is ok, but I agree with what Joe said earlier in the thread - the red bezel pip and the gilt details gave the earlier model a bit of pizzaz that the blue one seems to be lacking.

I'm very interested in this one. The Pelagos blue, which I really wanted, but, in hand, its blue was a bit much for me and the size too big, as well.

It needs a touch of cream in the lume.

Two of my local friends picked one up from the AD here and sent pics. The blue turned out better than I expected based on pre-release pics. It looks good on the blue/silver nato

Well I tried to pick one up, but waited too long after initially offered to me and my only option was on strap. I passed. But I’m totally smitten.

I have a feeling that since they made these available at launch to satisfy the immediate purchases it’s going to go back to a waiting list.

I was able to get on bracelet. I am really interested in seeing what that blue strap is going to be like.

Can’t wait till the morning.
