    Tudor Black Bay Chrono Experiences

    Evening all,
    I was hoping to pick the brains of those of you that have tried/own(ed) the Tudor Black Bay Chrono.

    At the weekend I was browsing through the shop window of Beaverbrooks and I fancied a look at the Heritage 36, but the BB Chrono caught my eye instantly. It wasnít something I was really considering but I think Iím lusting after it instantly.

    It looks stunning, my only quibble was the depth of the case, more than 14mm I believe. So a couple of mm more than the average for similar watches.

    I was wondering what those of you that wear the BBChrono regularly thought about the depth of the case and the weight. Does it still wear comfortably after a long day with it on, or does the size of the watch start to make you notice it and want to take it off after a few hours?

    Talk me out of giving Tudor my hard earned money ;) Thanks!

    Been wearing one almost daily since mid December. Best watch I have owned in a long time. Comfy, robust, looks great, wears far better than the specs would have you believe, looks so much better on the wrist than any images of it.

    I would unequivocally recommend one. Should be able to get 10/15% off retail with some smooth bants, if you wanted to buy new.

    It does not wear heavy even on bracelet. On the NATO youíll forget itís there. I donít even take it off to sleep anymore.

    This is it right now, on my just shy of 7Ē wrist...

    Collect mine today quite excited, brown strap has turned up just waiting for the clasp.
    Will post photos and thoughts on contrast to wearing my other Tudor watches.

    Love it! Bought it back in June and have been wearing it on a Zulu. The leather (that was offered to me!) I did not like because of the funny way the clasp is set up with the spare leather coming out the Ďwrongí way....

    Thanks very much all. Really glad to hear that the specs are deceiving. Looks really classy on your wrists.

    That being said, it certainly wonít help my bank balance lol.

    Iíll have to pop in over the next few days to see what I can negotiate.
    Thanks again all!

    Great choice of biscuit to compare the size to. I hope the biscuit didnít last much longer after the picture was taken

    Nothing better than a new watch day! Looking forward to the pics. Did you buy it on the bracelet and have bought a Tudor leather ones to compliment it, or is it a different brand leather strap youíve gone for?

    I have gone for it on the Bracelet and ordered a Tudor leather strap with clasp.
    Mine also comes with the nato which is nice I suppose.

    They are lovely watches. One is on my wish list too but not just yet, as Iíve been offered a BB Black (not the limited edition chrono unfortunately) at a very good price and the 41mm case fits me very well indeed.

    I do regularly wear my BB Bronze, which in theory should be way too big for my tiny wrist but I forget Iíve got it on after a short while. I think the whole BB line wear brilliantly and you wonít go wrong with the chrono

    I couldnít resist a quick biscuit photo . I feel this should be the way all watches are measured for fit. BB Bronze vs. M&S Sicilian lemon and white chocolate. Very comfy. And tasty

    The steel looks fantastic - wish it was a little (quite a lot) thinner though

    If you want a change up it also suits dark leather (Pav79)
    Black with white/cream stitching
    The Tudor denim nato works also ....
    But recently nothing can get me to take it off the original Erikaís ...

    What does everyone think a good price on one is? My local has the brown leather strap version currently on clearance.

    Yeah £2457 on the leather was what I saw it at. Seems like a very good price considering used they seem to sell for 2500-2700.
