Will Tudor release a Black Bay GMT "58" in the future?

Oct 12, 2018,03:25 AM

Considering they have so many different versions of the Black Bay diver...OK let's count them (just the diver and not including the Chrono or the "Explorer" like models with smooth bezels which incidentally come in THREE different sizes (32, 36, and 41 mm)  and TWO different dial colors (black and blue)).

Not counting the different variations of straps and bracelets we currently have:

Black Bay RED insert
Black Bay BLUE insert
Black Bay BLACK insert
Black Bay GREEN insert (Harrod's LE) [edit to add this variant]

Black Bay Dark

Black Bay Steel (date)

Black Bay Bronze (regular production)
Black Bay Bronze (Bucherer LE)

Black Bay S&G (date)

Black Bay GMT

Black Bay "58" (smaller 39 mm diameter and thinner case size)

Did I miss any?

I sure hope they add a "58" sized variant of the GMT to the mix.  Considering all the different versions we have now I think it would be an anti-pattern for them not to!  And while they're at it add a dark BLUE dial variant along with that "58" GMT.

I wonder if parent Rolex will let them release a white dial

It would be cool, but for Rolex white dials are special. When I was servicing my 16014 Datejust years ago at RSC Beverly Hills and I asked about a dial change from the original silver to a white dial and they told me Rolex reserves the use of white dials ... 

As you know I have a BB 58 and love it.

I would certainly go for a BB 58 GMT with a white dial or even better a cream dial. Fingers crossed. Regards Kev.

I sincerely hope so!

Their 41mm watches are too thick and not so wearable.

I hope so...

...but I am not holding my breath that they will release a 39mm BB GMT anytime soon. That would mean coming up with a new, slimmer GMT movement, and I can't imagine them doing so just the year after the 41mm GMT came out. We will probably have to wait lon... 

I think you're spot on regarding different bezel insert colors for the BB58 but

remember the BB58 has its own version of Tudor's inhouse movement, the cal. MT5 4 02, which is both thinner and smaller than the cal. MT5 6 02 used in the 41 mm Black Bays. i think adding a 24 hour wheel to give it GMT functionality is already in the blue...
