Tudor Black Bay Red.

 By: amanico : October 11th, 2021-07:40
With all these Tudor Black Bay Silver, Blue, and so on, I thought it was time to defend mine, with a photo. As you can see rom the dial, it is the first generation with the ETA movement, which is fine for me, as it is reliable and accurate movement. Big, ...  

You have nothing to defend there my friend.

IMO you have the most important BB to date on your wrist. For me 9 times out of 10 the originals are always the best. As in this case. The original Rose logo dial and ETA movement make this original version what it is. The original Tudor black bay. Wear t...

U have the original

I remembered many years ago when you were among the pioneers to get this piece and review it. Before that it was only the maroon version. Do you remember those times? The maroon version has a warm glow to it, accented by the gold tones used for the hands ... 

I remembered u most

Even after almost 5 years missing from this forum and lifestyle. You write with passion, and always got me excited to press releases and thoughts about pieces.

Thank you so much!

I just discovered something about the silver version today

 By: Cookies : October 11th, 2021-13:03
It dents very very very easily. It is a fragile piece. It does not lend itself well to frequent strap changes as the springbar holes may become blunted over time. I had a mini-accident today changing straps, resulting in it’s first ding.

Definitely the best

I bought one, sold it, bought it again, and sold it again. My issue was not that the watch wasn’t great, it was just not suitable for my smaller wrist so I eventually settled for the BB58. Too bad it doesn’t come in burgundy and no smiley with the Tudor r... 

I understand exactly your experience

 By: Cookies : October 11th, 2021-13:39
The BB58 is more like a classic sportscar with elegant proportions, like those slender steering wheels on a vintage car. The standard version is muscular and beefed up, like a modern mustang. It sits high and powerfully. I have the exact same wrist size a...  

You are in great shape!

Wish i were in France

 By: Cookies : October 11th, 2021-13:54
Maybe u’d like me a lot, maybe u’d hate me. I’m polarizing. But Cookies never hoards what he has. I often think of my friends, and get them things they’d least expect they need. Today after 4 months of lockdown, he drove 45 minutes to visit his coach (a f... 

Great shot as usual dear Nicolas! I´m happy to know your love and enjoyment with this first series Tudor BB red bezel.

I also feel an special fondness for the first series of this watch. Nothing to say in contrary of the second series with the in house movement but I specially like the little details of the dial with the "smile" inscription and the rose emblem of the firs...

oh yes!

 By: penfriend : October 11th, 2021-17:57
you led me to this watch I have the in-house caliber edition and don't care. Actually i tell myself that the smile dial would be too disrupt for my structured senses ;-)

I called “ the leather watch”

I recently managed to convince my brother in law to get into watches as he just graduated from medical school in Paris. He wanted to offer himself something that he would keep for a long time and that would mark the moment. He fell in love with the black ... 

Haha i actually did !

We can help him. ;)

was the watch that first got me seriously looking at Tudor, always good to see it. Have a good weekend!


 By: Drek : October 16th, 2021-07:00
Before this I had generally overlooked Tudor and was only looking at Rolexes, but this watch really stood out with its own identity and I still love the combination of the burgundy black and gilt on the dial.

They made some legendary watches. One of the most beautiful is certainly their no crown guard Subs...
