    Re: Opinion on Tudor

    I like the look of the black bay, but those snowflake hands, just aren’t for me.

    The cases proportions are all wrong as well, too tall and slab sided for my liking, but that was sorted to a large extent by the case on the 58 (which is On a Rolex style waiting list in the UK)

    Quality wise they seem fine, and obviously more affordable than their big brother.

    So if you like the hands, which many people do, and can live with the case height, then nice watch for the money.

    Opinion on Tudor

    I may be a minority opinion here, but I prefer the Tudor of yesteryear. Rolex casing, ETA movement. Can be serviced by any watchmaker with no issues. The new ones seem to be too bulky and trying to capitalize on the “vintage” or “heritage” look. That said, I love my blue 79090 sub and don’t consider it “poor man’s rolex”.
    Going back few pages...Mav, that snowflake looks great!

    People on the fence tbh but it is it’s own brand now with its own identity . Great value and you can pretty much pick one up at your AD .

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.
    Looks fine to me



    And the accuracy of mine is +4 /day so I am rather pleased

    I have a 2000 sea dweller and GMT II. At that time only the sea dweller had solid end links. The GMT II and other models had end links of folded metal.

    The accuracy of my MM300 is +5 seconds per day and am also pleased. However, I wouldn't be happy if it were running at minus 10 seconds per day.

    Thus far this thread has been pretty benign. The problem seems to occur with Rolex vs. Tudor threads, which this thread is not. However, I see no reason for any thread to go nuclear. Nothing wrong with spirited discussions but no reason for disrespect to be aimed toward any person. In any case I see no acrimony here. Good look @Panerol Forte keeping the thread you initiated going awhile longer.

    I am not talking about the end links, I am talking about the main links, sides and center. Rolex started with folded links, then solid side/hollow center, then solid/solid.
