Anyone have an AD recommendation? (in case I really want whatever they release, I like to be prepared) My local place kept passing me over for the BB58, so if this is a popular watch, I don't have high hopes of being able to buy locally. I thought Timeless was a Tudor AD, but they no longer list Tudor on their site.

I bought one from Timeless, but it was like 2 years ago.

Exactly. I mean, I had bought an IWC from them within the last 10 years, so I'd have thought I'd be at the top of their list.

Seriously though, I don't mind waiting, but this particular place kept telling me the next one was mine, and after several months of that I finally bought one slightly used.

I bought my first BB from them, but when I checked this morning they no longer list Tudor. :shrug:

Call my AD and tell them I sent you in case it helps Image I’m there all the time and the owner knows me well.

Tudor site crashed, here's the youtube link.

Toupe is the new black.

The Black Bay Chrono looks hot. The Daytona has never done much for me, but this I'd consider.

Thanks for sharing-- like what Tudor is doing... I'd take the Chrono with the black dial but need to see the Silver with the taupe in person...

Plus some silver and gold BB58
They have literally raped BB line to death
Although I think I’m in for the Panda

Green dial BB58 in brushed 18k yellow gold looks really good.

Panda is really nice. I do with they downsized or otherwise updated the Pelagos, though.

Didn't they already have a BB chrono? They're nice, but not something that's going to make me hunt one down. Maybe in the 58 case, but I always found the 41mm case cumbersome. Hard pass on the gold BB58. Money saved.

Edit:

Just saw on IG there's another BB58 with a 925 silver case and taupe dial/bezel. Kind of interesting.

Sexy but need to see it in the metal. I bet the lug holes are in the wrong place again

The taupe dial 58 is a sterling silver case.

Nothing from Tudor or Rolex that moves me at all this year.

Watched the video, kinda wanted to throat punch the guy talking. Nothing that grabbed my attention at all.

Kinda like the chronos and the taupe BB58 looks (not the silver case though), but not enough to think about perusing. I would be interested in handling one of the chronos, just to see how it feels.

"Chic"....."Taupe"... "Gold", (which looks like brass when it is brushed)..... Is Tudor heading toward fashion watches?

I do really like the Chrono, that looks good. But the non-rotating bezel is going to kill it for me. I wish they put a rotating dive bezel on it and put the tach on the inner chapter ring.

Some of these are real shit. A gold tudor for almost $20,000? Yeah, NO.

Not really feeling Tudor or Rolex this year for the most part. Use of silver for a case is different - I assume they have to treat it in some way to keep it from tarnishing. But the design isn't particularly inspiring to me. The all gold BB with the green dial and bezel is kind of cool, but not really my thing (and I couldn't afford it either).

The return to 36mm for the Explorer is interesting, as is the two tone version with the gold accents on the dial. But I won't be rushing out to buy either of them. The "new" Explorer II isn't new at all beyond the movement, so people who like the current design should be happy, but I wouldn't trade my five digit Exp II for one. The new datejust dials leave me flat.

Compared to Grand Seiko dial textures they're a joke.

I thought for sure Jacob would be all over the new 36 explorer.

I bet it wears closer to 37-38 like the five digit one.

It’s definitely more appealing than the 39mm and I’d like a new modern Rolex. However, I’m about a million miles from the nearest AD who I’ve never even talked to. So if this watch is the least bit popular I probably won’t be “allowed” to buy one.

A BB58 at half the price seems slightly more compelling.

I’m trying to get the Explorer I in its correct size and in SS obviously.
The Tudor Chrono in 41mm looks great but we should see a side pic, I’m afraid they used the slab case which would ruin it.
The Explorer II is basically unchanged from the prior model IIRC, so still significantly worse than the 5 digit IMO

The other offerings would make Invicta jealous.
