    Black Bay thickness vs vintage snowflake

    granted, very different cross sections (and a mm or two of NATO) but surprisingly pretty even on overall height

    I'm glad people like the new cases. In my very humble opinion, I prefer the vintage cases and tophat crystals. The Tudor GMT is absolutely gorgeous, a favorite amongst many.

    The Sub should be 2mm thinner on the dot and about 1/10th a mm thicker than the ETA BB.

    For me, a thicker case will always wear thicker, whereas the height from the Sub is mostly bezel and crystal. Beauties the both of them though

    I agree %100 I own this to same references. I do like the GMT but it is a big slab of metal.

    The shape of the vintage Tudor is just perfect. One of my all time favorite watches.
