    Tudor BB GMT question.

    Iíve yet to see the Tudor BB GMT in person but I still have a hankering for one (I think).
    One question I have for owners is - is the bezel insert actually blue? One almost every photo Iíve ever seen the insert looks far more black & red rather than blue & red, almost like the old ĎCokeí insert on the 16710.
    So it is actually blue then? Thanks

    I agree with you that generally they arenít as blue in the metal as the website shows, mine looks almost grey in lots of different kinds of lighting, and yes that does make it feel more Coke than Pepsi.

    in coke lighting
    in Pepsi lighting

    Itís one of the more delightful aspects of the watch. I think the bezel insert colours are perfect

    I love the blue. I saw someone (forget who) refer to it as 'petrol blue' and I think that's a great description. As Rusty says, one of the best features of the watch and really keeps it fresh.

    Tudor BB GMT question.

    Sometimes itís both blue and almost black at once!

    Great excuse for posting pics. It's classed as navy, turning to black in certain conditions. For me it's one of the best bezel combos put on a watch.

    This pic shows the range of shade of the navy....yes it's on an apple.

    It's a huge looking watch judging by the wrist shots. Beautiful bezel though.

    As others have said, definitely blue!

    Also, yes it is fairly big and particularly thick, but still fairly comfortable. I wore mine solidly for five weeks and by the end my flat, bony wrist was getting a bit tired of the weight, but for a couple of weeks I find it to be comfortable. That suits me fine as I tend to rotate anyway. In comparison, my AT 8500 never bothers me.
