    Tudor has been hitting the right notes ever since making a comeback in 2010 with the Heritage chronograph. Baselworld 2018 brings us a much-requested complication – GMT second time zone. The Tudor Black Bay GMT was unveiled the same day as its parent company, Rolex, unveiled the GMT-Master II with jubilee bracelet. The Watchuseek team has dubbed this Pepsi and the Pepsi Lite, where Rolex is former and Tudor the latter.

    Pepsi lite has less calories and less $$$!!

    This release was totally unexpected for me. Man I can't stop staring at it. Love the understated blue and red. Still brings out a hint of flash without the ostentatiousness that the Rolex GMT bezels have. Those watches are definitely beautiful, but this is a bit more my speed(also with my wallet)

    Can't wait for the release *drool*

    This one took me by surprise as well. The bezel colors are a little more subdued (they were borrowed directly from the BB Red and BB Blue bezels) than the new Rolex Pepsi, giving it a more vintagy feel. Now if Rolex had released their white gold Pepsi bezel with blue dial GMT in stainless steel all bets would be off.

    Expect the BB Pepsi GMT to become available for purchase this Summer (June/July).

    I really love the tone of these colours, spot on IMO.
    Are the bezels still aluminium though? Looks like it from the photo.
    Love the small snowflake on the GMT hand.

    Does anyone know if the hour hand quick sets or does the GMT hand quick set?

    There were a lot of rumors (including last year) about a GMT Pelagos. While I think that would be a super cool watch, this feels like the right model line to add the complication.

    I absolutely love it. Can’t wait to see it in person later this year. Maybe I’ll leave my wallet home for that trip to the AD! Lol

    Man I feel like a broken record. I've been going through the BW 2018 posts and looking at the new releases. Almost everytime the piece is something like 42mm or 43mm etc. I keep digging most of the designs ...but the sizes are just a bit too much for me. Same with this pepsi BB. Absolutely love it, aside from the size and height. (Wish they were making this at 39mm like the new Black Bay 58. Heck yeah)
