    Not sure it was a price rise from what I read - just an updated price list. Unconfirmed still, but BB58 blue reportedly slightly cheaper than current BB58

    Are all models likely to price rise if anyone knows.

    Sounds interesting, certainly seems that way from the Jenni Elle vid and a look at the new pricelist itself.
    How blue will it be? Just the bezel, or dial too? Will it still be gilt, or will it be steel details?

    Interesting

    If you read some of the comments on her video there's a chap that states he has one already on order and due to collect upon release, he hasn't seen it in the metal yet however the 'photo he posted a link to was for an all blue (bezel and dial) with no guilt and no red triangle.

    It looks absolutely ace, IMO.

    That looks a winner. And a realistic Tudor release.

    Just spoke to my local Tudor Ad, and they are getting back to me on details (what they can share and when), but they did confirm a new watch soon, including a non-selling display model. They have already taken deposits (5 so far) for the new watch (10%), despite not being able to confirm details yet.

    Jenni. She ruined it a little by telling us her husband woke her up at 5.30am though. Stupid husband.

    Is this potential new release BB58 39mm that far removed from what is already available in the Blue Black bay 41mm, which is and has been since itís release readily available at all ADs.

    If they are releasing the blue on blue dial and bezel it is trying to capture some of the 79090 vibe but the black bay collections are no 79090 or 94010 and for me this move is just confirming that Tudor at this moment are relying too heavily on vintage homages, becoming a one trick pony.

    That does look lovely, just got of the phone with my AD and put a theoretical order down.
    Fingers crossed for next week.

    That looks great. The BB58 is a really nice watch and Iím sure this version will live up to the existing one.

    I'd quite happily give her a nudge at 5.30.

    Just watched the youtube video recommended above. The photoshopped version that she references is blue bezel, black dial. The one above on this thread looks blue bezel and blue dial. I guess it could go either way, but given what Tudor has done with the Harrods for example, and previous BB have retained the black dial (when with Blue bezel), my money is on the dial staying black.

    Also her video states she is certain no new rolex releases this year. Not sure of her sources, but agree it would be a big surprise if Tudor's big brother were to launch something this year.

    I love my BB58 and I would be all over a blue dial/blue bezel version. Not so sure the black dial / blue bezel is different enough though. Letís hope itís the former

    The blue bezel is nice. I imagine itíll cannibalise sales of the regular BB. I also wonder if they will keep the 58 name, as the ďrealĒ 58 was to commemorate a classic model. Either way itíll sell like deep fried heroin no doubt.

    Something tells me that Tudor is not give going people what they actually want. It's not in their DNA. I do hope I am wrong. That is gorgeous.

    Whatís the difference between a Tudor sub and the 58? Mercedes hands? I canít see a modern Tudor dive watch deviating from the Snowflake hands as that is key to the brand.

    Steel details and blue dial from what I hear. Very confused re pricing however. Her video suggests Ä3340 for the blue but also states itís a bit cheaper than the standard bb58. Standard bb58 is £2760 though which works out at Ä3035.

    With Tudor/Rolex RRPs the Euro and pricing in other currencies tends not to convert back to an equivalent amount in sterling.

    Hence the often stated stuff about the UK still being the cheapest market.

    Hence the number of folk, whose reference currency isnít GBP, trying to buy in the UK market.

    Have to say and I am aware that this goes against the mainstream but bit sick of the colour blue! Would have liked something else colour wise or even a ghost or faded bezel.Hopefully seeing the watch will change my mind.

    Agreed. Tudor has in recent years strived to become a brand in its own right rather than just Rolexís little brother - look at the way theyíve invested in brand ambassadors and in-house movements. The snowflake hands are synonymous with Tudor and a key part of brand ID. Mercedes hands, and the name Submariner are both a key part of Rolex ID and re-introducing such things to the Tudor brand would be a step back to when they merely offered cheaper versions of Rolex watches.

    The BB58 is the closest youíll get to a release of a Tudor Sub in my opinion, with the popularity of it hopefully pushing them to expand the colourway offerings. This blue is a great start.

    Iím torn on this one.

    Blue bezel BB58 is great and all but it seems like such an obvious move. So many other things they could do with different lines (redesigned ranger, shrunk-down pelagos, even a middle-sized fixed bezel BB38). A totally new line would have been even better!

    I realise this release doesnít preclude any other of the ones I mentioned but Tudor is meant to be the exciting, daring alternative to Rolexís conservatism. Maybe itís just a counter-move to last yearís P01, but Iím a little underwhelmed by the prospect.

    A blue BB58 may just sway me to actually buying my first Tudor - the GMT was just too big for me and the original 58 just a bit too vintage-looking, but a great size... liking the look of the new blue 58 as a weekend watch or on a rubber strap for holidays...

    We just need to see it now

    There will be a Blue BB58, which is a good thing.
    We know it will have a blue bezel. Also good.
    Sources indicate blue dial, but not all agree. Blue would be better than black, otherwise the blue on the bezel looks a bit of an afterthought (as it does no me on the BB41 blue).
    Most suggest that hands and dial markings will be steel/silver, not gilt. That's okay.
    Personally I think the dial minute indices should be white, but this is not on Tudor's pallette at the moment.
    The photo above seems to show a slight vintage colour to the lume (which I doubt).
    In any event, it will sell very well, and it deserves to, but Tudor are drip-feeding their crown jewels into the market extremely slowly by releasing a single watch.
    I doubt I will be in the market for this. With a Pelagos, BB GMT and snowflake already, this new one doesn't really cover any new ground for me. Unless it is straight out gorgeous (blue with white print on the dial, silver hands, slightly vintage lume).

    Yup! That would be my pick. I tried desperately to get on with the BB36 but it was a tad too small, and the 41 was just too big. Iíll keep dreaming...

    I have to say a blue bezel is a bit underwhelming. Hardly born to dare.

    I wonder what they will call it as it isnít really a 58 reference at this point.

    I may be in the minority here, but all I want Tudor to do is sell me a regular Black Bay black bezel with a date complication. Just that.

    Do regret selling my last BB58, hopefully this has a darker blue bezel

  48. #48
    So blue bezel and dial seem to be the most likely outcome, interested to see this when it's released - could be really nice if done well or a bit too blue if done badly.

    Can't help but think the original blue BB was a bit sterile/cold compared to the other gilt BB models, wonder if this will be the same?

    Biased being an owner of the original bb58, not sure this one does it for me.
