    I guess that is one way to maintain interest in the GMT and BB58....

    If this is all that is released, last years BB58 will be even more coveted...

    Since the up-mocker has gone to the trouble of making them look like photos of pages in a printed catalogue, I'm not so surprised that people aren't automatically rejecting them.

    Can confirm it was Brian. Nipped in today, though he's not in this week, maybe at Basel. Noted interest in a possible sub.

    Popped in to St. James for some spring bars today
    I did cheekily ask
    They said they did not know.

    That one with the crown at four is awful. Awful.

    The dial and end parts of the strap make me think of this (which I'd rather have!).

    Totally agree - hopefully this is a hoax, otherwise totally tragic.

    Even this photo doesn't help me understand how this is put together

    Don't like the look of any of those, they all look very wrong. Not really in keeping with the relatively uncluttered pieces they've released, and to great acclaim, recently.

    It is all fake as far as I can tell.

    If they made this



    it would be a unique case of being a genuine brand re-make of what was originally a fake.
    The so-called US marines prototype from the early 1980s that this "copies" is so badly faked it hurts. Despite claiming to be from the 80s, it was originally presented with the Tudor rose logo on the dial that Tudor had not used for 20 years, on a rivet bracelet that Tudor had not used for 25 years, and with "US Marine" engraved on the back, making no sense to anyone except the non-english-speaking fakers that put it there.
    I might add that the quality of this render is also very poor, with shonky detail round the crown guards and very basic graduation of the shading.

    This casts the rest of the models (similarly presented in faux-catalogue print form) in an equally bad light.
    I don't believe a word of it

    Dave

    ps Edit - one of the earlier Official teaser photos also showed what was clearly a triangle 9 marker (there was no brand script or date near it, so not 3, 6 or 12). This has a linear 9 marker, making no reference to the earlier Tudor teaser

    I stand totally corrected, the piece I was reading about the prototype dated it to the 80s, whereas it seems it was 1960s, hence the older details.
    It is truly not an attractive watch at all, I am very disappointed.

    Look on the positive side, you'll have another 12 months to chase after rare Steinharts without worrying about what Tudor are up too 😂

    I think Iíll be fairly quiet on the purchasing front for rest of 2019 tbh. Iíd hoped for one big purchase from Basel but well look how that turned out....

    Certainly does, didn't get the bronze call right, but maybe that's a good thing?

    Oh, how my proudness of being on a Tudor sub list feels so hollow now...

    Might get a BB58 then.. or an Omega..

    We know Tudor have had a bloody profitable year to date. We can only assume they spent it all on crack.
