    Any news on expanding the BB 58 line?

    So I am watching a ton of review videos on this watch and the more I watch 'em, the more I want one. Even though there's no perfect watch out there, I think the only negative point on this watch is the aluminum bezel.

    Having said that, any thoughts of Tudor updating this watch with a matte ceramic bezel? Or any other updates regarding different color variations?

    The BB58 is a vintage throwback. Ceramic isn't very, uh, vintage-y.

    I thought so too but if you put the matte ceramic that you see in the pelagos into the BB58, then you got a scratch free bezel with the vintage look.

    Bezel insert material is such a moot point to me.

    I think we assume Tudor will keep running with it. Like more bezel/dial colors on the BB58 like the original BBs. I would assume not any added complications i.e. chronograph since they just came up with the pretty nice new in house movement just for this watch. I think new bezels and dials would keep a lot of us happy for a while. And I imagine they will probably circle back eventually to updating their other models too.

    I don't think we'll be seeing any Rolex or Tudor news til the end of the year.

    I think it’s a pretty safe bet that there will not be a ceramic bezel Black Bay 58. However as pointed out above it feels like a moot point to me.

    After living with this watch for a bit along side a mk1 BBR I wish they had kept the rose dial.

    Remove the faux rivets and ditch the straight text at the bottom for smiley then, for me, it would be a pretty unassailable watch...

    Would love to see a GMT, ideally a coke.

    I love the BB58 the way it is. Aluminum bezels also have a chance to fade/ age.

    For ceramic chasers please buy the Pelagos or the submariner.

    My predictions:
    - ceramic bezel, not likely to happen
    - different colorways, quite probable
    - GMT, I really wish
