Have you been on the list for any of these watches and got the call recently?
How long did you have to wait.
If you could update here it will give others on the wait lists and idea on progress.
I'm waiting for the Harrods, not expecting the call until at least August.

I'm currently waiting for a BB58 on steel. On the wait list for only a few weeks so far. They told me it could be towards the end of the year...

Harrods will tell you 18 months. But everyone I know has one has got theirs in 4-6 months.

BB58 / BBGMT - no one knows, not even the AD's but they'll try and get your deposit. I have seen them randomly in windows though... I've been told by an AD that I just drop in on sometimes to talk watch smack with that not many people are interested in getting on a wait list for a Tudor.

I emailed them this week to just check the status - I've been on the list a couple of months

Response - "The current waiting time for the watch piece is approximately 6 months and you will be contacted directly by the Tudor Fine Watch department via email, further information and collections arrangement will be addressed to you by the brand specialist. "

Anyway - just in case they are finished - I bought a secondhand one this last weekend. I bought it for a fair price - not from a flipper, and I will take a view on my ordered one if and when I get a call.

Just recently I was on the waiting list for a BB58 for only about 3 weeks before they had it in stock for me. I ultimately passed on the watch though.

Here in Australia, the 58 and the GMT has 1+ year wait list. I have my name down for a 58 for more than 8 months now.

On the waiting list for a BB58 since March. Was originally told about 4 weeks, but supply seems to have slowed since then.

Just put a 100% deposit down March 31st, was told 3-5 months... but AD said it may be much less. Here's a bit of a background on this:

AD 1: 100% Deposit, 1st on list, 3-5 Months (said it can be less). Last BB58 purchased from them was 2 months ago (Miami, Florida)
AD 2: 20% Deposit, cannot be added to list. Mentioned the 1st person on their list has been waiting since last June. This AD is only 10 miles away from AD 1
AD 3: 0% Deposit, cannot take a deposit, and there's a waiting list of more than 5 people. This AD is located on the other coast of the U.S. (Portland, Oregon)


It's getting to me waiting lists are not consistent between ADs...

On the other hand, which should I add to the collection next? The Harrods or GMT? Would love to pick up all 3!

I am surprised that you can get the Harrods in the US?

Given your list of 3 watches, a Black Bay 58 would be my pick.

Won't be via official AD/Store, but purchased from an online forum or other watch e-comm website.
Ah I see. That's because you said AD this and that in your original post. Over here, we equate AD to Authorised Dealer hence why I was confused as to how you could get a Harrods watch from an AD in the US. Thanks for clarifying and by the way, welcome to Watch U Seek! Why don't you introduce yourself to the membership at large in the what are you wearing (WRUW) thread?

I just got the call from my AD today. BB58 on steel bracelet arrived this afternoon. Will be picking it up this weekend.

Less then 3 weeks wait for me. Guess I got lucky.

Walked into my AD today to see if any new Rolex showed up just for giggles and grins, only thing new was a Milguass. I mentioned to the sales person how I'd love to get a BB58 but was told the other day they haven't seen any this year, he smiles and says "I think one came in today!", sure enough walk over to the Tudor case and there she was!!!!

I assume you bought it? No wait list in that store?

I almost messed up, I said let me go grab some lunch and think about it, he said do you want me to hold it till you get back, I said no If someone else gets it then it wasn’t meant to be. I came back a couple of hours later and picked it up! So glad I did, I absolutely love the size, now I’m afraid to wear it because it’s so hard to find! One of my watch obsessions I need to get over. I’m not a fan of the gilt finish, but as others have said it’s subtle and not over powering.
The store manager said they get calls from all over every week asking if they’ve got one, but they try their best to keep sales to locals to prevent flippers from getting popular models.
