    That is supercool, I was planning to visit the Victorinox boutique in London last week but never got to London. Don't like the string strap though... but I see it comes with rubber so that's good.

    Yeah it comes with a Nato green and a Rubber strap, so 3 straps in total. I've always like the INOX style... Will hear back from them today if they managed to secure the last one for me :cool:

    I agree on both. Sometimes I find him entertaining and sometimes not so much. Tudor does need to update the Pelagos. At 39-40mm it would sell like the 58.

    This is not what I need to hear while playing around with the idea of getting on the black bay waiting list

    I disagree with this guy. He presents his opinion very forcefully, without balance, but he undermines his own argument with talking about Rolex and their different models to the Sub. Yes, Tudor's "Black Bay" design language runs throughout the brand, but it's really just a distinctive handset on a number of different models.

    The Black Bay 36 = Explorer
    Black Bay 58/Black Bay divers = Submariner
    Black Bay Chrono - Daytona

    It's just a name. The watches are different models, though.

    I'm not a massive fan of the Black Bay Ceramic, but it is designed to appeal to a different audience to the vintage-themed Black Bay divers.

    Good points C man, maybe Tudor should've just dared to use another name for some models. As if the success of these only watches comes from the name.

    Surprise surprise, it was a new Black bay!

    Another popular "look how cool this watch is when you buy it but soon it will look like you found it in a trashbin or in the ocean and people will think you are homeless when they see you wearing trash" bronze watch :thumbsup:

    Yawn indeed.

    I wonder if companies ever get sued for the false advertising of bronze watches? Or if they put in the description and instruction manual "please beware that the watch looks pretty and almost gold when you purchase it but as soon as you start wearing it it transforms into a dark old looking product. This is normal and your watch is not supposed to look good once you start wearing it".

    Some people like a bit of patina.

    This one is not for me, though (and I'm quite pleased about that). I dislike the Tudor 3-6-9 dial and the colour scheme on this one does nothing for me.
