    im hoping the GMT will be thinner than the heritage black bay in house too. The new base in house movement going into the 39mm black bay 58 has lost 2mm of thickness. I think/hope the new Gmt movement is based upon it.

      the new hi-beat mm300 was of most interest to me.

      i like the Zenith sports watches, the Defy range but not the unholy pricing!! $9k for a 3 hander!!! i think they have confused titanium with unobtanium?

      the Tudor will undoubtedly and rightly so get a lot of attention, 70hr pwr reserve, in house, true gmt, independently setting hour hand and on bracelet for little over 5k? top effort Tudor

        The Tudor gmt for sure, especially now in the 39mm case. I really loved the BB heritage but just looked way too big on me. The Seamaster anniversary editions are gorgeous, especially the small seconds hand on the blue leather. Only 1948 pieces so feck all chance of getting one!
        If I think of something witty, I'll be sure to write it here.

          Tudor GMT is in the 41mm case, Black Bay 58 is in the 39mm which is great too....especially as it has a new in house skinnier movement. Both models drop that problematic aluminium crown tube for steel...no more galvanic corrosion

        I wear my watches on either wrist depending on my mood! I love small vintage timepieces, 30mm for the win!

          Sorry but I can’t go past the Pepsi on jubilee. That’s a win. Put my name on the list straight away. It’s brother is lonely.

                1. Agree, this does really narrow the gap more & more between it & it's more 'up-marketed' sibling... really iconic & gloriously lovely beautiful snowflake handset 'n' all.... like you say DW 70h reserve & 'true GMT' as well, quite nice for 3700 Suisse Francs, or about USD3900 (gosh, is that right?)

                2.
                Green, green is all good, but I still am struggling to get my head around the new ProSpeX logo, sorry, it just still isn't doing it for me, I don't need it on the display, nor the crown it (imvho) somewhat 'cheaply' adorns what is a EU3200 piece... (When you sell it though, give me a call).

                RRP EU3200




                3. Now this, likewise, +1, 'want bad', this is just bad ass, beautiful.. a SEIKO 1968 300m 'retro' HI-BEAT' diver, true to original pretty much, using a 'de-finished' version of the Grand Seiko 9S85 this is one heckofanice watch... 45mm fully fledged Zaratsu finished perfection WOW

                And 4. While some of the newer Credor range look cool, especially if you're partial to porcelain displays etc, the Eichi II's etc but this ordinary Grand Seiko (beneath) would be pretty nice too, SBGH265 is a 20th Celebration of the 9S lineup of calibre, it is a 'VFA' model for 'Very Fine Adjust' & would be pretty accurate one assumes, so everything is great, but then you notice again the top end finish (Zaratsu) so you know it will be quite dear... then you notice it's made from a chemical element thats carries the Atomic Number '78', the costly material Pt 750 and you now know the price will be nothing less than outstanding... Platinum is the king of materials, just so heavy, so shiny & it has that X Factor plus is extremely durable, malleable almost, they tend to wear supremely in the long run, USD53000 but then again, just look at this thing..

                      Lol, didn't think it would take you too long but this is fast!

                      vs. the standard MM300 NZD RRP this looks pretty reasonable.
