Tudor Black Bay GMT.

 
 By: amanico : May 14th, 2019-14:20
After having seen it in a Rolex Boutique, I could finally play with it. And to make a long story short, I am convinced! 

The watch is big, it is thick, indeed, but it has a cool factor and a lot of charm. 

And a detail I didn't notice till now is the silver lettering, which has a nice and very appealing depth. 




Picture taken during a dinner with a Purist Friend, our dear Henry! 

Thanks, Henry for having let me play with your Black Bay GMT! 

Best,

Nicolas

It’s a great watch...

Next year, I will take a decision. I am just waiting to see if they come with a 39 mm version. But if they don't, this one will be mine. [nt]

A fantastic Tudor. Better than any Super Case Rokex.

No offence to proud Super Case owners, just my opinion.

I knew that I could “Count” on your opinion

Would love to see it 39mm but evidently they though 41mm was better! [nt]

With a smaller diameter the watch would become too thick [nt]

I passed on it

Maybe in 39 mm it will be more convincing.
I found it too thick, too big, not well proportioned to work as a big watch.
Just my personal feelings.

I understand. I had the same feeling at the beginning with the Black Bay when it was unveiled ( the red insert version ). [nt]

too big?

 
 By: Peter : May 15th, 2019-13:23
i had the bracelet version and thought it is too big without giving it a real chance. sold it....::smile)) then i had second thoughts and bought the nato version. bad idea, it looks even thicker on the nato....
then i put it on a watch gecko vintage highly strap and started to love it. too thick? no, who cares::smile)) the GMT just looks great and works like a charm. this is a real value for money watch. 




It is the reason why a smaller size wouldn’t be a good idea

 
 By: foversta : May 15th, 2019-13:26
The diameter /thickness ratio would become too low. It is better imho with a 41mm size.

Except if the thickness is reduced, too. [nt]

I am not disturbed by the thickness. I would prefer thinner and slightly thinner, but I like it as it is. [nt]
