It’s a really nice watch but sits really big on the wrist.

Personally don't see this issue and best of luck getting a GMT II Pepsi without being ripped off on the price. The problem with the Tudor is how it sits - it's massive. BB58 for the win. I'm considering getting my name down on the Tudor Harrods but pretty sure I wont get on with the case size.

Not keen on that personally.

But I prefer classic, understated designs

It says who did the work on the case back.

12 year old Richie Rich billionaire kids might like that. They could call it a "skeleton roley" and wear it out to their own personal McDonald's

This looks fucking ugly! A 3110 movement is not a world wonder and to show it with a glass back plate makes no fucking sense!!!

Just treated myself to a bb58, first proper watch and I love it! Can anyone recommend a tool set and nato? I assume a tudor nato will be overpriced?

These aftermarket f*cked-with Rolex watches are all gash. Admittedly the one above is well done and has some charm but it makes no sense conceptually. Presumably intended for flashy twats who don’t really get Rolex or tasteless nerds who enjoy the natty incongruity of putting a ‘haute horology’ movement in a tool watch case. The Bamford ones are also pure puke. In my humble opinion of course.
