    Nah he’s really harmless and enjoys taking the mick on some forums but not particularly on OoO. On OoO Jason71 is the eye in the sky who will thump anyone who transgresses into submission. So no worries there.

    But I think that since Tudor has moved away from cheap Rolex knock offs (i.e. using the Oyster case) and developing their own designs and movements, Tudor can stand proudly on its own. A Tudor is a thinking man's Rolex.

    To answer all your questions, so many of them;
    (1) No, I don't associate Tudor with Rolex as I think it is unique in its design to stand alone;
    (2) I don't consider it a high end watch because it is cheap;
    (3) I dislike their dress watches which look stupid and can only bring myself to buy one of those Black Bay divers;

    In conclusion, you should get out more often and go try on a new Tudor. You will be pleasantly surprised.

    I like the "thinking mans" Rolex remark. My BIL bought a Tudor in the 90's while I had a GMT II and was trying to sell me that it was a Rolex, but cheaper. He made at least $300K more a year than I did at the time and did't compute that too well. I thought a jeweler had sold him a story to make a sale. However, after the new MT movements were introduced, I have 2 BB's and love them.

    Re: Opinion on Tudor

    Tudor's transgressions at Baselworld are almost unforgiveable. We've been over this, but it really was that bad. I miss the classic Tudors. the Black Bay line was a cool resurrection of the brand (although I agree wholly about the slab-sides). The BB58 is a purebred, the GMT as well (date issue aside, I think that's been wholly rectified). I think 2020's Tudor novelties will be a defining moment for me in how I view the future of Tudor.

    Rolex is staid and reliable.
    Tudor is Rolex's younger, sexier, more fun loving sister.
    I wouldn't say no to a Rolex but for my money I would buy a Tudor.

    I was surprised Tudor didn't expand and build off their wildly popular and successful BB58 line and disappointed they didn't put an in-house movement in their Ranger. I haven't seen their PO1 but don't like what I see from the pictures. I keep saying to myself "Wait until next year!"

    I think most were. I had really thought they were going to reintroduce their version of the Sub in some form, maybe another BB edition, with the movement coming from the BB58. Their IG teasers almost confirmed it in my mind but they trolled everyone. I also hoped that they would have updated the Ranger, North Flag and Heritage Chrono with newer movements and smaller case sizes.

    But instead they gave us the P01. Yuck. I commend them for doing something different but it’s still whack.

    I agree with TJ - Most can forgive them for a bad 2019 but they can’t screw up Basel 2020. It will be a defining year for them.
