Thread: Tudor BB58 Request

  1. #101
    I'm on the waiting list at Burrells in Winchester, it's for my newborn son as a birth year watch. Been on the list for a month-ish; they wouldn't commit to when they would get one in but I hope it's before the end of the year!

    I've just been told I'm up to 3 from 6 on the waiting list and David Robinson's are getting 1 a month in.

    I'm really pleased I stuck by the wait. It is a lovely thing to wear.

    In fact (and I did wonder this before), I suspect I'll let my Harrods go in the next week or two. I've only worn that once and already the 58 feels like the one I'd prefer to wear in rotation with the GMT

    Picked mine up today. They removed all the stickers before I could leave with it. Gorgeous watch and fits my tiny wrist perfectly!

    Why would you not want the stickers removed?

    I always make sure the back sticker is left on
    It simply reduces potential scratches

    I got a letter today saying the 58 I ordered has gone up in price from £2600 to £2720.
    I still want it though

    Is that an increase on RRP, or is the AD just price gouging?
    I just checked Tudors website and its still at £2600 on bracelet?

    They are an AD so I doubt they'd charge above RRP so I would guess this is an RRP increase.

    Sorry to jump on my thread with a slightly different subject.

    Any current owners of the BB58 find their model marks/ scratches easily? I've had mine since June clasp as a lot of desk diving marks, can live with that & one pram folding incident! But have also managed to mark the brushed parks of the lugs, once against a desk and another door knock - annoyingly. Now noticed a small dink near the polished section of the lug no idea where this came from.

    Guess it's the nature of the beast and how I wear my watches (generally long sleeves rolled up) and this is part of the ownership - 'the first cut is the deepest'.

    I know I can get it all polished and looking new upon service, just thought it'd would hold up better (fully expect it to be beat up after a few years & looking forward to this).

    Just wanted to get other owners experiences.

    Thanks Brad

    Ernest Jones Stratford Westfields has 2 in stock as of this morning 930am. Also Cheapside has 2 instock. I was in my local EJ who are not Tudor stockists this morning ordering a strap for a watch and asked them if they can get one in for me. They said I had to go to the actual store or call them before you go to reserve it.

    I've had mind almost a year and I've notice that the clasp as a lot more desk diving marks than I would have expected. Especially compared to some of my other watches (a Exp II for example) which I've owned for years and it doesn't have as many marks.
    I've had no issue with the rest of the case / bracelet, seems pretty durable.

    Honestly? No. I wear mine a lot, maybe 3 times a week for the 3 months or so Iíve had it and itís holding up very well.

    I should say that Iím basically retired though, so no actual desk diving or even Ďworkí to beat it up with

    Hi Brad
    I have worn mine for just over a year on a regular basis, in fact it has become the one that I wear to work.
    During this time it has received numerous knocks/marks/dings (as I recently changed jobs, which involves more manual work).
    I love seeing the marks on the case, though I don't intentionally go out to abuse it, at the same time I don't mind if it does get marked. To me this is what the watch was designed for :-)
    I have managed to secure all the straps that come with the watch, but as this piece will be passed down to one of my Grandsons, I what them to be able to choose which strap they wish to use, so I don't them abused. So mine is fitted on one of Steveo's Para straps, which pretty much indestructible and to me is a fitting partner for the BB58.
    Cheers
    Tony

    I recently been enquiring about the same thing and been quoted £175, Omega retail theirs at £130 and feel smoother and softer, Tudor's feel more rough but love the video showuing how they are still produced.

    Think mine gains roughly 5 -10 secs every 10-14 days.

    Thanks.
    I'm going to wait for the one I've ordered.
    Certainly a lot cheaper than Ebay.

    I managed to pick one up yesterday on a bracelet from a walk in to an AD that I have some purchase history with.
    Must admit it was a bit of a spur of the moment purchase as it was there & available. I got a Longines not to long ago so spent more than I should have on watches recently.

    Just got a call from my local AD in Leamington Spa that they have a 58 on bracelet ready for me.

    Due to several reasons I will probably pass on the opportunity so if anybody might be interested please PM me and I think we can work this out.

    Iíve had mine on over the weekend and enjoying the watch more and more. Just got to figure out how many links I need in the bracelet. Had one taken out and it felt to loose, had another taken out and the adjustment made on the clasp and itís now abit to tight.

    Iím a fan of the raised glass on it too, glad Iím keeping this now!

    I think someone mentioned here that it marks easily? Well itís my second full day of wearing it and it has marked on the case by the 2ío clock area.
    I have been super careful, not hit it anywhere there etc and itís got a tiny mark. Least itís done and out the way now I guess

    My wrist is 7inches and I had the same issue. My clasp is away getting an extra hole put in to remedy this.
