    Didnít like the Tudor but.....

    I visited a local jeweller today to try a Tudor GMT- the first one Iíd seen in their window. Unfortunately it really didnít appeal to me - a shame since I thought Iíd love it.

    However I did fall in love with this:





    In reality I didnít need another watch but as most readers will know this is an addictive and expensive hobby! I blame this forum....

    Itís certainly got a look to it a bit of a Ulysse vibe imo
    I suspect a bit marmite to many but Iíd have one definitely

    I thought the blue dial version would be the one for me - but the silver blew me away.

    Lovely watch, itís the white dial on bracelet that is catching my eye at the moment.

    yes I went looking at the blue thinking i'd love it but was very underwhelmed, just a bit too dark a blue.

    the silver and the white I need to look at in the flesh.

    I too was left underwhelmed by the GMT but I have seen these when passing Heathrow a few times and they do look good in the metal, on a blue Omega style rubber it would look fantastic.
    If I were looking for a new divers watch this would be top of the list.

    As Mark says above, this is a bit of a marmite piece. But wouldnít life be dull if we all liked the same thing...

    I have one too - Just a bit more difficult to see the date on the grey dial vs the other colours...

    The date window at 6 seems naturally more difficult to read on the blue too, perhaps itís smaller on these models.

    I wish they made a non date variant.

    It's a fun colour scheme and a quality piece. Is the bezel as hard to turn as previous generations?

    I'm a huge fan of the silver dial, not least because of the blue indices and the subdued dial printing. It manages to look subdued and stealthy, but in a highly legible and quite blingy way.

    I've come very close to buying this in Heathrow duty free a few times. Kind of wish I had, as when I first looked at it it was £3000 on bracelet duty free price. Now it's a lot more.

    Its not the silver colour per se (although I don't think it looks as good as the blue), but that wavy pattern on it. Why?????

    That model, with the date in the right place - or the non-date version for me.
    It's just a matter of time...

    I think that colour combo works best on the Aquaterra. I suspect that one would soon tire of it on a classic diver. The Black or Blue is the best choice for the SMP. Undoubtedly the best diver on the planet for the money right now and a viable alternative to the Sub.

    I know there is already a PSA out for them and they are not that hard to come by but...
    Ernest Jones on Cheapside have 2 GMT, one each on a nato and leather and a PO1 sitting in the window.
    May be of use for someone

    Also a big fan of the non wavy gloss model. Can't quite get on with the helium escape valve, but great watches nonetheless.
