    Grandfather clock. That would be a surprise.

    Agreed on this. It has to be after the investment in the movement, etc.

    Really looking forward to what we are going to see from them again this year. After such a great release set last year!

    I’m hoping for the smaller movement being used in other models, e.g. a reduced size Ranger and in the BB 36s, and maybe one or two new models.

    I wonder if more colours in the 39mm diver starts to make the BB diver stock list verrrrrry long. My selfish wish, as a BB58 owner, is for this to be the only unique Tudor 39 diver!

    Something inbetween the Black Bay 36 and 41 would be nice.

    Anything that doesn't have the words Bay and Black in its name will be a surprise but I suspect they will milk that a bit longer.

    Personally - North Flag variations.

    Unlikely - All gold BB
    - BB digital/smart

    Goodbye to the chronographs that are not BB. Hello to more BB chrono's

    Thinner watches would be nice.

    A 58 GMT would open a lot of wallets.

    Something that's very similar to a watch already in the Rolex range but with snowflake hands.

    I would be keen on a Tudor Sub, can’t seem to find a decent, complete 40mm one.

    Pelagos 58 is on my wish list.
    Makes sense to bring the new movement into a different range as well as explore more colur options (which will definitely happen).

    I’d like to think a faithful reproduction.

    The original blue snowflake sub is a seriously popular watch with collectors and now very expensive compared to its price a few years ago. It makes sense more than shrinking the Pelagos IMO. I think the Pelagos being a pro divers watch is justified in its size.

    Looking at the Tudor catalogue I see the original Chronographs and 50’s subs they’ve pretty faithfully recreated. They show an old snowflake sub in the catalogue but that’s the only really popular oldie they’ve not done.

    Also people wanting a BB58 size GMT, I can’t see that happening as the GMT is fresh out and also they’re going to be constrained by the movement size.

    Would absolutely love to see them do this.

    How likely do we think that will be?

    For a couple of years now a 'like new old stock blue snowflake' has been high on my wish list, a nice reproduction from Tudor might just see me breaking my own rule regarding 'waiting lists'.

    Would love to see the GMT in a BB58 sized case, but as the GMT is less than a year old I suspect it might be a little too soon.

    A panda dial chronograph is well overdue.

    A big block reissue in particular but with the Breitling movement would be good

    just gone on to the tudor site..it gives a run down of the sub from 1969...baring in mind the BB58 was launched this year with 60 years to commemorate its original launch, could they do a 50 years special to the sub in 2019...just a thought ??

    What will Tudor surprise us with at BASEL 2019

    I was going to post exactly the same thing as Berty234. A big block reissue would make a great addition to my 79280. True to the original size though, please.

    An in house date day, traditionally styled, would be a killer too

    Hopefully some colour variations on the BB58, or a 39mm GMT. Adore the BB58 but would kick myself if I bought a black one only for them to subsequently release a red version.

    ‘58’ Pelagos (sans date) and Ranger ‘58’ please.

    A two-tone BB58 would get my juices flowing...

    A 36mm Ranger would be nice. But top of my list, like many others, would be a blue Snowflake sub. I’d prefer no-date and a 58 profile rather than the slab-sided Black Bays.
    If they made a blue Pelagos at 39mm I’d be happy with that also.

    I hope for a blue dial/blue bezel BB58 with no date and no gilt - square indices would be a huge bonus.

    Tudor used to make the 7020 in a 38mm "Jumbo" case with a rotating bezel. A Tudor style Turn-O-Graph, I suppose. They came in three dial colors (black, blue and off-white) and a few different languages. I don't buy watches with the date function but I might consider a 7020 styled watch.

    (not my watch or photo)

    50% off across the range :)

    or a north face gmt, either would work.

    As someone who has had a number of Tudor over the years I have been following this thread with interest.

    What I take from it is just what further potential there is for the brand. Virtually none of what has been suggested is beyond reason or possibility. I can see the next two, or more, Baselworld being very exciting.

    As I have said before, I think the brand is in some very canny hands.
    I think they are slowly and surely revealing the crown jewels they have planned, and are deliberately not going straight to the motherlode of perfection in one step.
    I think there is massive potential for a lot fo the things mentioned here

    Pelagos GMT
    Pelagos 58 (smaller size)
    BB58 in a few more colour options
    BB 58 GMT

    I think all of these will come, but over a few years.

    They've had a lot of bother responding to demand for this year's two models, I wouldn't be surprised if they deliberately avoid releasing anything that might cause a similar stampede until they've caught their breath. After all, there are still plenty of potential customers for those two still awaiting an opportunity to spend their money.

    I've been sitting on the funds for a red BB58 since the last Baselworld. They need to make it happen.

    Apparently Tudor will change its name the ‘Rolex’, so all the dials will be new. Rolex is going to change its name to ‘Grand Rolex’. You heard it here first...

    A BB58 with the ‘3-6-9’ dial layout from the BB Bronze would be a rather good throwback to the Explorer-dial early Submariners.

    I thought we might see a few BBD models with various different lime colours, just to stick it to Bamford. If they've perfected the PVD coating why not?

    Has to be a GMT 58 (39mm)!!!! at the same price point as bb58. If they charge much more other brands start to look more appealing
