    Tudor BB58 for GS Spring Drive

    Hey guys, first discussion post here. I recently acquired a BB58 on fabric and sourced the bracelet afterwards. I love the watch, but it is just a little bit too “vintage” for me after having it for a while. Also, the dial reads a bit small as the bezel kind of dominates the 39mm case (IMO). I potentially have a trade in the works, and I’m not asking for comparisons aesthetically, because that’s purely subjective, but I don’t have a way to try a grand Seiko as there are no dealers remotely close to me. I think I’d prefer a more modern looking watch, but do the 40mm spring drives wear large since they’re essentially all dial? I have fairly small wrists at 6.5-6.7”. Any comments/feedback greatly appreciated!

    I guess it's the angle, but that white dial looks way bigger than the other 2!

    Depends on the model. I have a similar wrist size and I find the snowflake wears large whilst I own an sbgh005 which wears very nicely even though there is technically only 1mm width difference. By the way I think it sounds like a good trade. Would rather a spring drive (model dependent) than a Tudor.

    Just realized I didn’t put the model in but it’s the SBGA085 with the black dial

    Probably partially the angle bjut that snowflake case is big and thick.

    If you're looking for a keeper is make sure you looked at the grand Seiko with the 44gs case like the blue one I posted. Sits much flatter on the wrist.

    The 62GS case is also very nice, like on the new SBGA413:
