    These days Tudor make great watches. They have great offerings. Give me a black bay 38 and I'll call it a day. I dont consider myself a collector these days. More an enthusiast.

    While Tudor does share some similarities with the big r, they are completely different. Watch hodinkee's talking watches with moki. He talks a great deal about his Tudor and the many journeys it saw him in as a navy seal.

In all fairness to Tudor I did at one time own a Ranger that was +1 second per day regardless of position but not until regulated at Rolex Service Center in Dallas.

    Re: Opinion on Tudor

    "Snowflake Hands:"

    When seriously shopping the Tudor brand I was often put off by the odd hour hand presentation in photos (second hand disappears). In person, the hands seemed to fit into the overall appearance well and after wearing/owning the watch for a few weeks, I don't even notice this. The watch is very legible, daylight or darkness. The combination of features makes this a very ergonomic timepiece, perhaps far more than a fetish'd grail watch (choose your make). YMMV: I do Not miss the calendar complication or it's attendant cyclops; of this, I am certain (prior "R" equivalent).

    'Just an observation - all subjective, of course.

    Wanted a 36mm Explorer, since there's no such animal to be found new today I decided the Snowflake might fit the bill.

    This! It’s a sandwich movement or something like that.

    You can visually see it in case construction too. For example in this pic you can see how the integrated movement in the speed master pro (top watch) the pushers sit flush with the crown whereas in the speedmaster reduced (bottom watch) the pushers are slightly higher that the crown:

    Solid brand that takes risks with design and only uses high quality materials.

    I never understood why people keep stating that it uses the same movement as the Grand Seiko 9S55 except that it is undecorated and unregulated as if it was a good thing. The 8L35 is only rated at +15/-10 spd, which is no better than a standard grade ETA 2824-2. Even the Grand Seiko 9S55 makes a puzzling distinction between its static accuracy of +5/-3 spd as opposed to a normal usage accuracy of +10/-1 spd, which just sounds like an attempt to claim a superior to COSC accuracy without a willingness to stand behind that claim.

    When you get it serviced it becomes a Grand Seiko movement.
