Bracelet gets plenty scratched, it's patina I tell myself, but to be honest I buy watches to wear not to flip. I don't mind.

That Pelagos is a thing of beauty. Cool

Wish it came in at 39mm like the Tudor subs as it would be my perfect diver watch without having to spend silly money.

I dont understand why they dont slim down the Pelagos and GMT for folk with smaller wrists. I tried on a normal Blackbay for comparison when I got the 58 and it was like wearing a clock.

Given the popularity of the BB58s I expect Tudor to give the people what they want with their new releases. Can't wait to see what they do next.

Hope this wasn't a jibe at me because it would be misguided. I wear all my watches and never flipped one to date. Just suffer from mild OCD that's all!

All this talk of BB58… I’m selling my BB58 Blue to fund another purchase. Worn less than 10 times. Hit me up via PM.

I can't get on board with the Tudors generally due to this. Preference for a slimmer watch, but they feel even bigger than they need to be when compared to some of the chrono's in steel around with more complex movements and equal waterproofing.

Big fan of how slim the daytona case is and wish Tudor would make something on that level as I like the look of them.

Always thought I had average sized wrists, and my Pelagos sits well on my wrist.

i wear a BB GMT and it needles me that it's just that bit too big. Pelagos is comedy size on me and i was used to a Sea Dweller. A GMT BB58 would be my perfect watch.

Non watch related Smiling love my GS and the BB58 doesn’t get a look in at the moment.

Agree with MoB though, BB58 GMT would be epic

I know you want to wear it and not worry about - I'm the same - but it breaks my heart a bit seeing metal against metal like this.

So nice though. Is the dial green or black? Can't bring myself to say the Marvel or Muppets character names
