    well 4 weeks in and I love it on the bracelet, leather look great but marks easily and now on a crafter blue strap which I think look great. In fact 4 weeks in a the pepsi not been out of the watch box. For the first time I am thinking 1 watch............nah, now I am just being silly

    The leather looks better the more you get it marked tbh

    The local Ramsdens are a bit optimistic!

    I was pragmatic when it happened to mine. Meant it was definitely seen to by Tudor when I sent it back. Very happy with it now

    Thanks Rusty. I am pragmatic too. AD very apologetic, as I said not a problem of their making.
    I'm sure it will all be sorted, just I am about to do a bit of traveling and use it for its intended purpose. Very unlikely to be back in time.

    Mine has just got back to Tudor for its second repair, this time for the date issue. It skipped a day three days in a row and then on the fourth day got stuck between dates.

    Mine is a Nov 2018 watch and went back to them the first time in Nov 2018, but not for the date.

    Tried one on recently as I saw it sitting in the window of Goldsmiths (which in itself struck me as unusual) but ended up passing on the opportunity - as an overall package (coupled with well documented issues) it didnít cry out to me.

    Pity, as it was firmly on my radar until I tried it on

    I found it too large and unwieldy when I tried one on.

    Iíve just put mine on a grey nato from Bark & Jack and it seems to fit me a lot better than when on the bracelet

    Beautiful in pics but a Gemma Collins on the wrist. Owned two, will own a third when they reduce thickness.

    I love them. I resent the GC waste of oxygen comparison though ;)
    It's just a matter of time...

    I still love mine aesthetically but think it really is too thick for my pencil wrists and as such does not end up getting much wrist time. I'm sorely tempted to sell and buy a BB58 which is probably more my dimensions.

    Such as shame as I think its an absolute stunner - maybe Basel will be worth waiting for however!

    Luckily I have larger wrists at 8 inches and it
    wears really well. I really donít find it too thick but then I am used to a Monaco which feels quite tall and chunky. Itís also not as thick as my old Seamaster chrono which was 16.8 mm thick, which was too much and I sold it. The Tudor GMT
    is I think a great all-round watch which is rapidly becoming one of my favourites.

    6.75" wrist here :( I'm still in two minds, every time I see it in the box I love it but it does wear heavy on my little wrist!

    I have a 7 inch wrist and understand the comments and compared to the 58 it certainly has considerable weight. The 58 is almost unnoticeable on the wrist. Whereas you know you are wearing the GMT. For me it needed to have a 21 bracelet and be 13mm thick. I love mine and itís going nowhere but personally I would not want anything even a tad bigger.

    Big watches will cause wrist fatigue if worn lose. The bigger the watch the snugger it should be fitted behind the wrist bone. Wearing a watch this way helps a lot. For me thatís the only way to wear any watch but when it comes to heavy weights it becomes IMHO the only way.
    My GMT is on the Siena leather strap so weight is not perceived at all. Perfect size for my 7.5 wrist.

    I am surprised people on ebay still trying to sell at retail given these are freely available- this afternoon in manchester (is the red strap option new).

    Itís actually brown leather strap, was always an option and my favourite at the moment. Makes the watch a bit more dressy

    People selling at retail might have gotten it before price rise so just trying to make a little profit I guess?

    Decided to move mine on. Picking it up next weekend as it's just come back from Tudor.

    Glad to see them in shops now though as they are lovely. They have suffered from a couple of quick price hikes which dulls the value proposition a little in my book.

    Just the way of the world I guess!
