Latest Tudor - Not my Croissant-de-jour

Recommended Posts

I agree, looks horrible. The lug to lug looks impossibly long. I don’t like the way the metal carries on from the case into the strap. And I don’t get the crown af 4.

I’m not sure how they got it so wrong, where did they get the idea that this is what the people wanted. I’m sure it will sell, maybe Stevie wonder will take one, but it won’t sell like more bb58 variants or a sub reissue would have. Who knows maybe they want to build the suspense and mistique for another year, or maybe they are mad.

How so ? 

It just looks like a very very clever 5 year old sneaked into a dealer , stole four watches , then went back to his secret lab at the bottom of the garden, pulled them all to bits and randomly glued some bits together....

Apparently its a "heritage" re-issue of a 1960s watch.....

isn't that a gmt bezel? Not a gmt is it? Lugs look very long for size of case its almost a rectangle, not keen on the seiko crown overall it looks like someone warmed it up in a pan and it ran. A bit directionless.

Swivel lugs I would surmise.

Lots of metal round a watch does little to tickle my fancy . . . .

Wish some of you would design something new you actually want. :laughing2dw: Ooh, it's a homage, you've copied someone else's design, blah blah, I don't like it. Boo Hoo.:sign_wtf:  :tongue:

Can see why. :)

Had it been crafted in copper may have passed as ‘Trench Art’...possibly ?

Apart from the sheer fugliness of it, the lug to lug is 54.5mm. Who is going to buy this? Massive fail … that will probably sell bucket-loads

What would have been nice is a BB58 with steel bezel. That I could like.

I preferred Tudor before they were re-issued into the UK. I find they look nice in pics and pleasant enough in real life, but I still recall getting a call here about the BBB release, I went, I looked, I walked away without even trying it on.

I do like the Black Bay red and blue pelagos.

Edit - oops, forgot the main bit. If the new watches are a hint of the brands new direction, I think they might have overplayed their hand.

The p01? is not really my cup of tea at all. The S&G chrono on the other hand is something I could see myself wearing (not on that bund though) if I could get over the clunky snowflake hour hand, strangely I'm ok with the second hand snowflake on the P01 but not the rest of it... anyway lug to lug is way too big for me and my wrists are huge...
