I would choose the 58

 By: sham1 : July 23rd, 2019-04:12
but only because I have a small wrist so a 39mm watch suits me better. I also like the fact that the 58 has a shorter height than all the other Black Bay models.

Hard arguments.... 😁

I like the size of the 58 much more. The GMT has a "contemporary" size. Not bad at all, but youre right, the 58 has a better size. Totally agree. Thank you

Keep 58

and get Rolex ceramic Pepsi. Best, Kari

I dont have it yet, but have to choose, this saturday...

58 or gmt... looks like 58 is winning so far

GMT is a bit thick and big. I much prefer the new ceramic Pepsi Rolex.

The proportions of 58 are great. Best, Kari

Thanks Kari...

I have the 58 and my son has the GMT.

Both great watches but a big difference in size and weight. No help I’m afraid but you can’t go wrong with either. Good luck. Regards Kev.

Thank you

It does help actually, as i am more of YOUR age 😁.

This is how it looks on my wrist. Acceptable. But i want it on a bracelet, if i go for the gmt... ...  

Both great watches but i would pick the BB58

 By: Watchonthewrist : July 23rd, 2019-09:11
Had the GMT a while ago and i pref the smaller BB

Got it. Arent both watches 200m waterproof?

 By: Alberti : July 23rd, 2019-12:41
Yes, is the slimness of the case and tha design of the 58...

58, without a doubt.

Unless you have a big wrist and the 58 is too small for you, then I would doubt. Vte

I have rather small wrist and the 58 seems winning by 7:2 so far

I'm a wee bit biased

 By: halkcb : July 23rd, 2019-18:18
as i have the GMT,but it sits pretty comfortably on my small wrist,and the ' thickness ' doesn't really bother me. I had a chance to acquire the 58 subsequently,which i liked, but somehow decided to give it pass. The more i wear the GMT, the more i enjoy ...  

Thanks Henry

I like the gmt, but never had the chance to try the 58... i think it really comes to the moment where i will see both and be able to try.. i like slimmer watches and do not really get the trend of bulky watches. What is going to be difficult is the gmt co...

I choose the 58

Both are very handsome in person, but the case thickness of the BB GMT is too high - looks unrefined imho. The 58 is well proportioned from pretty much any viewing angle.

Thank you.

 By: Alberti : July 23rd, 2019-22:24
Bb58 clearly winnig here


 By: Alberti : July 23rd, 2019-22:24
Thanks. Getting pretty clear now.

Both are....

 By: FlyingSnoopy : July 23rd, 2019-22:55
beautiful but I think that the gmt is a tad too thick... The 58 will prove to be mor3 comfortable Good luck Cheers

Thank you 😊 [nt]

58 for me!

 By: ezinhk : July 25th, 2019-07:41
I have the 58 - the proportions is spot on and classic vintage look and feel. If you prefer a bigger, thicker sportier watch, go for GMT.

I do appreciate. Thank you.

I will keep you posted 😊
