    Wow Tudor, thatís a stunner!!!

    Just come across this little stunner from Tudor, the Black Bay Chrono in 41mm, priced around £4K...

    That is a beautiful watch and much better looking than anything I saw in the Baselworld thread from Tudor (unless I missed it)...

    Think I will head into a Tudor place soon and have a look at that in the flesh...

    Definitely by far the best out of a bad bunch released this year from Tudor.

    Does that come in silver with the black bezel? I'd be very interested in one if it did.

    I'm becoming increasingly drawn to this.

    70 hour power reserve from an in-house movement.

    Chrono and date.

    Sensible sizing and comfortable strap.

    About 75% less than the Rolex equivalent.....and that's steel equivalent.

    And I do quite like the retro Steel and gold contrast.

    Question is....what to pay for it?

    Can you get discounts on 2019 Tudor releases?

    Beautiful watch, although I'm not sure how I feel about the lugs.

    Looks much better on the fabric strap rather than the 2 tone bracelet.

    The original one is Steel with Steel bezel/black text. I normally avoid the steel bezel versions of any watch (or same bezel colour as case) but it works well on the Tudor.

    I have that one (Steel/Steel) - and itís way nicer in reality than the pictures portray.


    I love the look of the new Black and Gold too.

    Zero chance Iíd say. The ADís are firmly following the Rolex strategy with Tudor & youíll hear all the guff under the sun. Iíve had plenty first hand from two separate ADís on Tudor. Best one was the woman telling me Iíd stand no chance getting a Pelagos as theyíre sold out and thereís a waiting list. I had to show her the 3 in the window (which have been there over a year now).

    Much better looking than a Daytona IMO

    If only Tudor would do that Sub! Itíd be me done & dusted.

    .. and without that monstrosity masquerading as the hour hand..

    Nice to a degree. Alas the crown and pushers just make it look naff and chintzy.

    Has anyone confirmed with an AD if there are waiting lists for this one already?

    I know it is their trade mark but I just can’t get on with Tudor’s hour hand shape. I wish they would go retro back to the Mercedes

    I used to feel the same but recently come to really appreciate them plus they are very legible.

    I do like that! I had missed that in all the garbage they had put out this year.

    I've been living with my BBC since a few weeks now and although I don't wear it everyday, I really like its presence on my wrist. Substantial enough to feel good but discreet enough to not get the obvious jealous looks. Quality is at par with Rolex and Omega, no doubt about that.
    I did no get any discount when I purchased it, but they offered me the leather strap. I don't like it because of the way (..not the quality, which is superb!) the folding clasp is constructed (with part of the strap hanging out the wrong way, at 6).
    No issues with the hands, which I have to admit was the USP that draw me to buy that watch. The Manufacture/Breitling-movement performs extraordinary well. Superb precision with a +1s/day out of the box. The 70 hour power reserve is fantastic as I do not wear it everyday.
    Only little negative, would be the screw down chrono hands, which mean I will probably only very rarely use it, but who does..
    I will put it on a crafter blue for the vacation and see how it feels.
    to be continued..

    This one flew under my radar in the Basel-thread, and I'm a bit sad that I know about it now... It might have to be my next watch.

    Tudor chrono S & G

    I tried the S & G on a couple of days ago in Rome.
    Its was fitted with the bracelet and looked great in the window. The AD said they had only had it in for two days.
    I put the watch on and it fitted perfectly without adjustment.

    It felt good and looked very retro which I liked. The gold on the bracelet is brushed so it really gives the watch a less glitzy look than say the Rolex two tone. The gold doesn't run through the clasp like the newer Rolex but it looked right for the style of watch.

    The size of 41mm for me was perfect having 7.6 inch wrist. (Probably a bit larger as it was 35* outside) The solid gold pushers add to the wrist presence along with the gold capped crown.

    Apparently the first link in the bracelet along with the pushers and bezel are solid gold and the crown and rest of the bracelet links are capped gold.

    I personally think the crown at least should be solid gold like the pushers. As I'm not sure if it would age differently.

    The price there was Ä6500. A tad expensive compared to list price of £4,890 here.

    All in all I was very impressed with the watch. So much so I am seriously looking at getting one.

    Iím quite keen on this model so when it hits the shops will have to take a look. Would probably buy on leather and swap that out to an Everest rubber strap, think that would look great. At £4K itís a £600 premium over the non two tone equivalent, which isnít so bad although I doubt discounts will be available on such a new release.
