    Black Bay 36

    I started collecting four years ago when my dad mainlined the sickness into my life by giving me his Coke GMT Master. Since then, I’ve been on the hunt for that ideal 3-4 watch collection. I instantly gravitated to divers, but flipped so many of them that nothing really stuck. My wife got me a Speedy as a new job present, so that’ll be a piece that I wear until I’m in the ground.

    Out of nowhere, though, came a piece that I never really considered: the Black Bay 36. It came today and I’m in love. Yes, the size isn’t for everyone, but the watch is just pure sex. The ultimate go anywhere, do anything watch. It scratches the Explorer itch for under 2k (lightly used). Cannot recommend it enough.

    Crown & Buckle 20mm Chevron.

    Even though the lug width is 19mm, there are no issues with mounting 20mm straps.

    I have one on the bracelet and it is a true GADA watch for me. The 36mm size is also outstanding!

    Didn’t think I’d like the size at first; I was also looking at the 41 and Ranger. But, I tried on the 36 in the store, and despite the large watch trend, everything about the 36?just works. It also doesn’t wear like it’s 36mm; it has a good wrist presence.

    Nice watch... Enjoy!

    I also checked out the BB36 at the store recently and must say... Impressed. I had an itch for a Rolex OP36 however I'm second guessing that now. The Tudor is half the price new.

    Only thing I'd like to see in the future is them updating the movements to the in-house MT movements. Don't know what that would do to the price though.

    Looks great and the size works for you. I've got a Ranger myself, which is my "Hey, this is actually more Explorer than the Explorer, hmm" watch. But the BB36 is a wonderful piece.


    And if you need to get rid of patient zero for your sickness, I will gladly take your Coke bezel GMT off your hands and quarantine it for you.
