    Re: Opinion on Tudor

    Anyhow, back on topic. I find Tudor to offers very compelling value proposition, and like Rolex, they offer unmatched precision of manufacturing at their respective price points, their bracelets and endlinks exhibit very little lateral play, and the bezel action is very precise.

    With their new in-house movements, exhibiting a high power reserve, and silicon hairsprings, their movements are extremely competitive as well. While the METAS certified Omega co-axial movements might be better, they are also at a higher price point than Tudor.

    But more importantly, I find the designs that Tudor offers to be very attractive. They are indeed far edgier compared to their far more conservative Rolex sibling. Their designs tend to be more taste and function specific, but they make sense in a larger collection.

    I think the real concern is the thickness of many of their watches, which is further accentuated by the flat slab midcase design. This is addressed by the Black Bay 58, and I hope to see more variants based on this, including a GMT version at some point.

    I am not a seikoholic but I find I wear them because they appeal to me more than some of my other watches . I am basically a looks first kind of guy then I go from there .
    I can understand being impressed with the finishing and the gliding second hand. And, yes, if the looks appeal to you, that’s definitely an important factor as well.

    Enjoy your BB, I've been tempted by that from time to time.
    Me too! I'd be all over a Ranger 36 - 38mm, love the arrow hand..
