Bugatti Twin Turbo Black DLC

We’ll get to the planetarium later, but first there’s a piece created in collaboration with car brand Bugatti: the Bugatti Twin Turbo Black DLC. This is not the only collaboration between the two brands, as they offer, for example, the Bugatti Chiron tourbillon, which contains an animated miniature replica of the Chiron W16 engine, and there are many versions. But today, we’re interested in twin turbos.

This imposing piece gives us a grade 5 titanium case with a black PVD ​​​​finishing and a carbon fiber touch that still measures 57.3mm long, 51mm wide and 16.9mm thick. As you can understand, a real beast on the wrist is often the case with branded pieces, but here we’re at another level of inelegance.

It is the manufacture movement JCFM03 that brings this extraordinary timepiece to life. It contains 572 components and offers a decimal minute repeater complication, which means that at the push of a button, the watch will tell the time by displaying the hours, tens of minutes and minutes. Thus, the tens of minutes replaced the quarter-hours of the classic minute repeater. We can also observe the two hammers in action and part of the rest of the movement through the sapphire crystal on the caseback. It allows you to become aware of the quality and finesse of the finish, while indulging yourself in the crystalline sound of the multi-note cathedral bells.

In addition to this, the double triple-axis tourbillon at 6 o’clock on the dial ensures the high flying precision of this futuristic technological gem, while offering impressive visuals to take you on a journey into premium The world of watches and cars. The replica swiss watches is mounted on a black leather strap for a touch of elegance and classicism.

Zenith Pilot Type 20 Rescue and Pilot Type 20 Rescue Chronograph

Earlier this year at LMVH in Dubai, Zenith put the brand’s aviation heritage into the spotlight with the launch of two new Hyundai models. The Pilot Type 20 Rescue (Ref. 03.2434.679/20.I010) and Pilot Type 20 Rescue Chronograph (Ref. 03.2434.4069/20.I010) feature 45mm brushed stainless steel cases and textured sunray grey dials. They come on a black vintage calfskin strap with a titanium pin buckle.

The Pilot Type 20 Rescue (Ref. 03.2434.679/20.I010) is inspired by the Zenith 1900s style retro aeronautical models of the Pilot Type 20 series. It is powered by the self-winding self-winding calibre Elite 679, with a large dial showing the hours, minutes and seconds.

The Pilot Type 20 Rescue Chronograph (Ref. 03.2434.4069/20.I010) is powered by an automatic column-wheel chronograph movement, El Primero 4069, which also offers a 50-hour power reserve. The watch features a central chronograph hand, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small second at 9 o’clock. Hours and minutes are centrally located.

Both models have a power reserve of around 50 hours and are water resistant to 10 ATM. In addition, the domed sapphire crystal of both watches is anti-reflective treatment. The dial features rhodium-plated gold-faced hands, which, like the Arabic numerals, are coated with Super-LumiNova. Another feature of the watch is the inclusion of the Zenith Flight Instruments logo, which is engraved on the casebacks of both models. These watches also feature oversized crowns typical of pilot watches.

Zenith Chronomaster Revival ‘Manufacture Edition’

While the El Primero Chronograph celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019, Zenith is introducing another revival of the original El Primero. That said, the Zenith Chronomaster Revival “Manufacture Edition” showcases a dial never seen before – until now.

According to Zenith, a box of old dials from the legendary El Primero A386 was found in the manufacturer’s attic. Unexpectedly, the box contained a prototype dial with three different shades of blue subdials, but it never made it to the market. Now, Zenith is using the long-forgotten dial in the new manufacturing version.

The Zenith Chronomaster Revival ‘Manufacture Edition’ case is an exact replica of the original 1969 A386 case – 38mm and stainless steel. Additionally, the rediscovered dial features three blue subdials with faceted, Super-LumiNova coated hour markers and hands. Also, the tachymeter scale is located around the edge. In addition, the date display is located between 4 and 5 o’clock, while the small seconds are displayed at 6 o’clock.

Notably, the automatic movement El Primero 400 powers the Zenith Chronomaster Revival ‘Manufacture Edition’, delivering a high frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour (5 Hz), as well as a column-wheel chronograph. Furthermore, it consists of 326 pieces and has a power reserve of about 50 hours.

Finally, the Zenith Chronomaster Revival “Manufacture Edition” watch comes with a blue alligator leather strap.

BRM V12-44 Chronograph Strap Checkered Racing Strap

BRM fake should be the favorite watch maker for French enthusiasts, racing fans and watch lovers. Bernard Richards brings a love of racing and a desire to express himself in the same style and aesthetic. BRM (Bernard Richard Manufacture) makes incredibly unique and almost whimsical watches for those who love racing or unique style.

The French are actually impressive watchmakers and designers. The rapidly rising Bell & Ross is French. Tag Heuer and Zenith are owned by the French, while some great “artistic” watchmakers like Alain Silberstein are French.

More on other times of French watchmaking. Let’s look at fake BRM V12-44. This is a super racing-themed watch that can be seen at a glance. Unlike other “racing watch” manufacturers, BRM focuses on the mechanics of the race car, not just the theme or appearance. Therefore, each of his watches contains some elements of a racing engine. The V12 range focuses on retro styling and serves as a reminder of when cars were truly bolted together. The highly polished screws that cover most surfaces remind us of hand craftsmanship and lasting strength. It further relates to the rich chrome that vintage race cars enjoyed. The large crown and pushrod are designed to resemble engine pistons and feature valves.

The lines, and bolted to the lugs, add to the “construction” quality of the watch. My interpretation of the case is that it should resemble a racing wheel (without the tires of course), while the dial of the watch is a retro racing dashboard. Various holes in parts, such as the hands, hint at weight-saving techniques commonly used in high-performance machinery. In most cases, adding holes in structural elements can save weight. I don’t think BRM took Swiss cheese into account. copy watch for sale

Inside the watch you’ll find an updated ETA Valjoux 7753 “Valgranes” which is basically an updated and bigger Valjoux 7750. The functions provide the time, date and a 12-hour chronograph, which integrates nicely here with a tri-compax sub-dial array. I do like the way the rear window is placed for viewing the movement in a lightly trimmed fashion. The watch itself is 44mm wide without a crown; good size.

One of the real stars here is the leather strap. The ethnic-inspired gingham pattern is a true hand-stitched interweaving design. I’ve seen many check straps, but this one is by far the best that separates the black and red leather. The clasp looks beautiful and matches the style of the rest of the watch perfectly.

While not cheap, the BRM V12-44 is an excellent “entry-level” BRM copy watch.

NEW COLORS OF U-BOAT CAPSOIL DOPPIOTEMPO

A permanent evolution of an iconic design that brings together two successful models, the Capsoil and the 1938 Doppiotempo, in new colours

The time on the wrist is multiplied by two, giving the opportunity to experience two different times simultaneously and visually enhance them with a three-dimensional effect that transcends the limitations of glass and dials. That’s the idea behind the Capsoil Doppiotempo model, a perfect combination of a dual time function, provided by an internal rotating bezel and an “oil immersion” concept with an oil bath inside the case and a free-floating compensating bubble dial.

Italo Fontana presents three new Capsoil Doppiotempo models, also equipped with a double crown on the left, one for setting the time and the other for setting the different time zones; available in satin 316L stainless steel cases with black DLC treatment. The entire 45mm diameter features an over-dome sapphire crystal, with the hour-markers and numerals beneath it in a new original colour.

The white version is the exact opposite of the U-BOAT‘s classic color, featuring an inner rotating bezel and a white dial with black hour markers and numerals. The remaining two new models use a black dial and beige numerals, but the hour markers and numerals on the black inner frame are green in one model and red in the other.

An innovative locking system (locking ring system) and a patented screw-on battery housing cover on the back of the case allow quick and easy battery replacement. The strap is black vulcanized rubber with embossed brand logo. The new model is water resistant up to 100 meters. cheap replica watches

Maurice Lacroix presents four new Pontos watches

This may be out of a sense of neglect, or it may just be a natural progression of the release cycle, but as part of Geneva Watch Days, Le Méridien has just announced four new watches from its Pontos collection. I say “ignore” because Aikon seems to have been in the spotlight lately. I get it – Aikon is modern and gorgeous, and it’s available in all the bright, fun colors. But what about traditional and classic looks? That’s what fake Maurice Lacroix Pontos is all about, and it’s been that way since its launch in 2000, which is why it’s been pushed aside in the name of “fun”. no longer! The new Pontos S Chronograph and two new Pontos Day Date models (including limited editions) are available now in two colors. While the Maurice Lacroix Pontos collection is the flag-bearer for the brand’s heritage watch design, these watches are anything but ordinary.

First up is the new colorway for the Pontos Day Date. The 41mm stainless steel case is only 11mm thick, features the unique stepped lugs that define the Pontos collection, and comes with a set of wide, slightly curved crown guards – if nothing else, the case should wobble as it is something beautiful. Powered by an ML143 (based on a Sellita SW220), the dial has a 12 o’clock date and a 6 o’clock date (just me, or is the font on the day wheel very small? Why is it in a serif font when everything else is so clean and modern) ?). Despite the pull-out crown, the watch is still water resistant to 100 meters. There are really only two new things on this model, both on the dial. The dial still features the same applied indexes, recessed sections that emerge from the day and date windows, and perfectly proportioned lumen hands, but is now available in a lovely blue color. New to the Pontos Day Date line, though, is the contrasting sandblasted chapter ring, which is as concave as the rest. The watch comes with a blue nylon strap with a butterfly deployment clasp, a steel bracelet, or both. While nothing revolutionary here, with the popularity of blue, this new dial is easily the one that will probably outsell all other Pontos Day Dates.

The Pontos Day Date Khaki Limited Edition adds some character to the Pontos Day Date collection, featuring a black DLC case and a dark green sunburst dial with a day and date wheel; the same specs and design as the other new Pontos Day Dates (see Date and Date font, isn’t it better?). Maybe the brand just wasn’t brave enough to commit to a black DLC bracelet, but as is the case with the black watch, this one comes with a strap: quick-release green nylon with leather backing and a matching black DLC butterfly deployment clasp. Morris Maurice Lacroix describes the watch as a “cityscape,” and while I tend to roll my eyes to see such a copy, in this case, I think it’s correct. There’s an undeniably tactical cool-chic (not a word you often hear together), and the case’s matte black finish is balanced against the more traditional case silhouette and radiant green dial to create tension.

Completing the Pontos release is the new Pontos S chronograph. Available with blue or panda dials, the new S designation brings a sportier look with a scratch-resistant ceramic tachymeter bezel, extra lumens, and a new dial layout and design. The 43mm wide case features the signature Pontos stepped lugs, push-button pushers, 100m water resistance and 15mm thickness, which is reasonable for an automatic ML112 movement (believed to be an ETA 7750, via display bottom cover visible). The movement is a change to the Pontos chrono, so replace the 6 o’clock date on the old Pontos chrono with a 3 o’clock date display. The chronograph’s subdials are also more modern, with a contrasting red accent that complements the 10-second marker on the inner chapter ring. To further its practicality, the new S Chronograph features a Super-LumiNova coating on the hour chart and hands. Both styles are available with a nylon strap with butterfly clasp, a stainless steel bracelet, or both. This version is in line with many others introduced in recent years, such as the Zenith Chronomaster, which uses a ceramic bezel for a sportier feel. Despite the existing Aikon models, this fills the void for Maurice Lacroix, eventually adding a sports chronograph to the catalog.

Everyone here has something, doesn’t they? While chronographs may feel a little too familiar, the stepped Pontos case allows them to do their thing. But the real draw is the day of the week, which is complemented by the depth and contrast of the dial, the two great colors, and the well-balanced 12- and 6-day date displays. Here, I’m starting to think that Maurice Lacroix has put all its marbles in the Aikon basket and dropped the rest of its collection – it turns out that the brand is just slowing us down. buying replica watches

Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Tourbillon

Jacob & Co. was founded in New York City in 1986, which means the famous watchmaker is now celebrating its 30th anniversary. They decided to do it in style, honoring 30 years of craftsmanship by presenting the Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Twin Tourbillon.

This limited edition of only 18 pieces marks a milestone of innovation and excellence, while also embodying the brand’s characteristic sporty style. This new piece at Baselworld 2016 features the cathedral gong, offering a modern way to strike a bell.

Thus, the Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Tourbillon marks the passage of time every 10 minutes.

Featuring a titanium and carbon fiber 57.3mm case, this extraordinary timepiece features a domed sapphire crystal, a sapphire display caseback, and is water-resistant to 30 meters. The Jacob & Co. Twin Turbo Twin Triple Axis Tourbillon is powered by a Swiss hand-wound Jacob & Co. caliber JCFM01 with 49 jewels, 21,600 vph and a 72-hour power reserve.

Now all that’s left is to hope that the black alligator strap with titanium unfolder will someday help you wear this wonderful statement. super replica watches

Opera Musical Watch by Jacob & Co.

Looking more like a work of art than an actual timepiece, Jacob & Co.’s latest creation has everything to take your breath away, from captivating designs to one-of-a-kind movements to musical surprises. Jacob & Co. Opera Musical is limited to 18 units, thanks to a beautiful 20-second melody that plays on 120 notes when the button at 2 o’clock is pressed, making your day even more exciting .

This may sound confusing, but the truly enthusiastic will realize that this unique feature is very close to true magic. The melody of this fascinating timepiece comes from the two music box cylinders on the dial, mounted on the specially developed hand-wound JCFM02 movement, which also features titanium components for ideal sound transmission.

The gorgeous 18kt rose gold touch continues to surprise, contrasting with the 47mm wide black DLC titanium case complemented by a sapphire crystal. The watch and its great music can even handle 30 meters of water, and the in-house movement, JCFM02, will be powered for 72 hours – it might just need them.

The finishing touch is the matte black lacquered dial, gold applied hour-markers and blued steel hands, although no one can take their attention away from that wonderful dial – if we may call it – or a music lesson, whatever How do you prefer. If you’ve ever wanted to wear music on your wrist, this is probably the best!

Chopard Mille Miglia 2022 Race Edition

Sexy, rally-inspired timepieces aren’t just for fans of classic car racing.

Pedaling on an old race car feels like a step away from the Cannes and celebrity-inspired glitzy world Chopard lives in, especially if the company wears its hat as a jeweler for the rich and famous. But if the Mille Miglia race (Italian for “a thousand miles”), and therefore the annual limited-edition watch that bears its name, is anything to go by, then the desire to drive a classic car on idyllic Italian country roads is as Chopard DNA needs to shine on any glamorous red carpet.

In fact, Chopard’s co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele was a lifelong petrolhead who once admitted to having a passion for cars before his obsession with watches. It was his passion for racing that led Schaefer to participate in the 1989 Mille Miglia Classic Car Rally, which in turn inspired him to create the Chopard Mille Miglia Commemorative Watch. At first, the watches were only issued to contestants. (To this day, all participating drivers still receive a Mille Miglia watch engraved with his or her car number.) Of course, it wasn’t long before the commercial run of the Mille Miglia version fulfilled the public’s need for a dynamic and luxurious sports collection.

This year, Chopard cheap continues the annual launch of the collection with the Mille Miglia 2022 Race Edition. With blue and grey cases, the watches are available in 1,000-piece stainless steel, 250-piece bi-metallic stainless steel, and 18k ethical rose gold. Despite the inherent luxury of the new model, evident from its well-constructed case, refined finishes and solid chronograph engine interior, the Mille Miglia 2022 Race Editions have a decidedly retro feel.

The 44mm case of the watch expresses the retro style: a huge stopwatch-style chronograph pump pusher (ethical gold on the bimetallic model), a vintage tachymeter scale on the bezel, and a triple-composite chronograph accumulation with a snailed pattern The watch contrasts with the round brushed grey dial. Between the two variants, we’d go for the all-stainless steel model, as its “cleaner” aesthetic better conveys the sporty spirit of the range. It has to be said, though, that the bi-metallic version’s palatial trim isn’t quite as exaggerated or ostentatious either. fake men watches

Despite years of development, Chopard’s Mille Miglia watches have always been distinguished by two key design hallmarks. The first is its rubber strap with a Dunlop tire pattern printed on it. On these new models with calfskin straps, the pattern appears on the underside of the rubber lining. The second feature is the Mille Miglia’s red arrow logo, which you can find at the three o’clock position next to the date window.

On the screw-in caseback that looks like a tire rim, you can find more race hats. The caseback is engraved with the Mille Miglia logo, the rally’s “Brescia > Rome > Brescia” route, and the watch’s limited number. Although you don’t see it, under the hood is a powerful and precise COSC-certified automatic chronograph movement with a power reserve of 48 hours.

Given its history, the Mille Miglia 2022 Race Edition may have been made for fans of vintage car rallying. Even so, as a manly vintage-inspired chronograph from a well-known brand, this watch has enough quality to get a neutral element.

Richard Mille presents the new Le Mans Classic Automatic

The silence around Le Mans has been disturbing for the past two years. Anyone familiar with the world’s most famous historic motor racing event knows that every July 2, the city vibrates with the rumble of cars on the scalding asphalt in the distance. The legendary Le Mans Classic will return not only in 2022, but also the following year, in 2023, on the 13th anniversary of the first race of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Typically 700 historic racers will race the track along with 8,500 racers in the “club” area. Next year’s event is likely to break the record of 135,000 spectators, the last in 2018. Around 8° models are dedicated to this event, of which Richard Mille has been a partner since its creation in 2002. The brand released a watch to celebrate the competition, the RM 029 Le Mans Classic Automatic. Fans will immediately recognize the timeless green and white colorway.

The external dimensions of the RM 029 Le Mans Classic Automatic are 40.10 x 48.15 x 13.10 mm. The central part of this new limited edition case is made from a single piece of white quartz TPT ® and then green quartz TPT ® between the bezel and case back. The bezel shows the characteristic double stripes of Le Mans, with white quartz TPT® inlaid with green quartz TPT® at 12 and 6 hours, an unprecedented process for the brand. The sporty, breathable white rubber strap undoubtedly underlines the vibrancy of this classic colour combination, ensuring outstanding comfort for extended periods of use.

At the heart of the new RM 029 Le Mans Classic Automatic is the RMAS7 skeletonized movement with an oversized 4-hour date window and a unique automatic reloading system with an adjustable geometric rotor working on two barrels. A dedicated 24-hour counter, easily recognisable at the 2-hour position, pays homage not only to the characteristic duration of the race itself, but also to the hundreds of cars and drivers that are converted during the 24 hours of the race, starting at 16:00 (in blue on the dial indicated by the colored arrow).

Day or night, this limited-edition watch will transport enthusiasts and drivers back to one place: the race track, where Le Mans’ iconic black and white checkered flag is flying in time. discount replica watches

21st Century: The World Timer in Youth

With Louis Cottier gone, World Time watches disappeared from the Geneva manufacturer’s catalog for the next three decades. The 70s and 80s came and went, Concorde roared from Paris to New York and back at supersonic speeds, and when Pan Am also disappeared from the airport in the early 90s, it became easier to jump from A to B, and then to C. As curiosity grew, generations of world citizens discovered the Earth, and finally – in 2000 – the Platinum Reference 5110 appeared, marking a new era for the Patek Philippe World Time watch.

There is something particularly striking about this model. Instead of a second crown at 9 o’clock, this 37mm reference has a pusher at 10 o’clock. This button is used to jump from one time zone to another – by the way, Patek Philippe patented it a few years ago. Inside the watch (and all its successors) is the 240 HU movement, which is based on the traditional 240 movement. The latter movement was first created by Patek Philippe in 1977 with the main consideration being the Reference 3738 – an ultra-thin Ellipse d’Or. Over the years, we have made improvements, including the addition of Gyromax ® balances and Spiromax ® spirals.

With this new reference, the World Time watch is back among watch lovers. Not only is the complication unique in its aesthetics; many would consider it far superior to any classic GMT watch, and it is also extremely attractive in terms of craftsmanship. After all, the center of each dial in particular can be finished and decorated in a number of ways. patek philippe replica uk started with the classic guilloche pattern, and has since shown several models in cloisonné enamel. The latter is led by the Reference 5131, a variant of the 5130 that replaced the 5110 in 2006, with a larger diameter of 39.5mm. Reference 51302006 comes in white and rose gold. The platinum version of the Reference 5130 debuted in 2007. Just a glance at the enamel world map on this enthralling model will inevitably attract anyone who sees it in metal.

The variety of styles available today ensures the emergence of a new group of collectors among Patek Philippe lovers. Some people focus entirely on world time watches, even ignoring the widespread enthusiasm for Nautilus models, or the unique charm of “rare handicraft” models, their flawless craftsmanship and uniqueness.

Personally, it’s also a World Time watch that reinforces the author’s fascination with Patek Philippe. For the manufacturer’s 175th anniversary in 2014, the Reference 5575 (among others) was launched in a limited edition of 1,300 pieces. At its centre is a moon phase display mounted on a rotating mineral glass disc. This moonstar display blends beautifully with the white gold case, black dial and city name in white lettering, making it almost impossible to think about the watch’s popularity.

Faced with such success, it must be very tempting for Patek Philippe to launch another Infinity model with a similar look and moon phase function. But if one thing is certain, it is that Patek Philippe, as a brand and manufacturer, is always unpredictable and never simply opportunistic in the short term.

In any case, investment pieces like the one above don’t explain the appeal of these watches, which in many ways deviate from the common notion of beautiful fake watches. They are more interesting and smaller in size due to the multitude of city names. If too much writing on the face is usually interpreted as a disadvantage, different rules apply for this watch category. Karachi, Auckland, La Paz – small watch, big world.

Tudor Black Bay

What is the size of the watch?
These watches are from the same line, drawing certain design elements from different historical models, giving off a completely different vibe. To find out why the black version wins for me, it’s time to subjectively compare and contrast the two watches.

Tudor Black Bay 58 – 2018: Black
Although the original Tudor Black Bay 58 has a dark grained dial, it gives an almost comfortable feeling. This is thanks in large part to the visible gold plating on the hour markers, hands, minute markers and bezel. The attractive tones created by the gold-plated and rose gold indexes give the watch an almost autumnal warmth. Rarely does a black dial exude such warmth. This makes the original Black Bay 58 a very versatile watch.

It has a laid-back style but a serious design. You can imagine it being worn on a man’s wrist sipping hot coffee on an October day, or pairing it with a burgundy wool jumper for a walk in the forest with friends. That said, this Swiss diver’s watch has a purpose – it’s legible throughout the day, whether you’re an aesthetic lover or not, not to mention easy to read even in the depths of the waves. According to an unexpected opinion from a friend, this is a “pirate watch”; while they must be a reasonably financially successful and tasteful pirate, I do agree with its aesthetics, especially the brown leather strap option, that would be worn Travelers take them back in time to rough seas and far-flung adventures.

Tudor Black Bay 58 – 2020: Navy Blue
In contrast, the blue version with its navy matte grained dial exudes more of a summer yacht vibe. When I first saw it on a friend’s wrist at a restaurant last summer, the first thing I noticed was that it was more vivid and brighter than its siblings. Worn on a very high quality NATO strap, it looks confident yet elegant and masculine.

If I were to personify this watch too, I’d say it feels like a socially casual piece to wear while meeting friends and sipping rosé on the French Riviera. Speaking of France, it’s worth revisiting the fact that this watch was inspired by the mid-70s “blue snowflake” Tudor submarines worn by the French marines. As mentioned, find out how a country can trust it Investing in a company really means a lot. I like to imagine the pride, not to mention the joy, the Navy gained from using tool sheets at the time. In the end, as the success of this model proves, Tudor has played well in the game, deftly responding not only to the growing demand for smaller-sized watches, but also to the continued popularity of blue-dial sports watches.

judgment
While using the same design language and mechanics, the two versions are significantly different. Therefore, two basic conclusions can be drawn. First and foremost, both models are inevitably popular for their ability to be neo-vintage watches, but still boast impressive calibers and high-quality craftsmanship. Second, both watches share what many enthusiasts are after: a strong story. But that’s why the black version still dominates.

First, with its bold retro look and feel, it definitely stands out with its more unique look. Unlike the 2020 version, this watch doesn’t try to capture any trends so obviously, and its color scheme is refreshing. Secondly, there is its inspiration; the black and gold-plated models mainly use the Tudor 1958 Ref. to form their design specifications. 7924. This is important – after all, the entire collection takes its name from the famous groundbreaking diver’s watch. As a result, it was able to provide what many members were looking for; a real sense of heritage. The original Black Bay 58 is successfully executed with a neo-retro design that combines a sensual story with equally poignant design elements.

Having said that, the navy blue version also tells a powerful and powerful story of a nation’s belief in a watch house. Also, despite being the more modern of the two, it still balances storytelling and style seamlessly into one best watch. That said, its sporty composition combined with the blue dial unabashedly caters to current trends.

Compared to its siblings, this 2020 design is a far cry from the 1958 Ref. 7924, at least at first glance. For this reason, while probably the more preferred look for most people, it has less sentimental value in my eyes. What’s more, Tudor has always been appreciated by its fans for the high quality of its watches, its lower price point and usability compared to its older brother, the Rolex.

However, getting the navy blue version proved to be very difficult. I’ve heard many stories of waiting lists and even forum discussions – perhaps ironically – about replacing the more expensive Rolex “Smurf” Submariner in favor of getting a navy blue version. In any case, there is clearly a price to be paid for following the trend, although Tudor never generated the hype around it from the start.

So while the original Black Bay 58 version won me over, the joy of watchmaking lies in its wide range of opinions. Thankfully, the different aesthetics of the two models mean that at least two should speak to you. If not – let’s pray that Tudor fake will surprise us again this year.

The strap or bracelet you choose can change the overall look of your watch. If you’re not sure which style is right for you, you can visit Tudor’s online configurator and explore the options for yourself.
