Has anyone handled this new model? Does anyone know its height? Looked everywhere but can't find this info. I assume its the same as the rest of the Black Bay lineup with the in-house movement i.e. slightly taller than the ETA movement BB.
What was you impression of the watch in person? Comfort on the wrist?

..and the date function .

All other 3 hand Black Bays don't have dates.
The date complication is what kills my interest in the new Black Bay models.
Shame too, I really like everything about the steel and the new two-tone models... except that date window.
To me the Black Bay should keep with the retro theme, and the date window kills the look.

You mean like this one? ;)

Dates have been on the Tudor Submariner with the snowflake hand set (if not dial) since the 1960s.
No, I mean the new one with no cyclops.
The one that looks like a generic Oris diver instead of a classic Tudor.

But in fitting a date, it's no more or less retro than the ones already released. I guess it's a bit like hearing a song played a few different ways; the first version will always be the one you prefer.

There was a steel bezel Submariner for sale 20 years ago. Interestingly, for those who like their "true histories", this is more than can be said of the "one true Black Bay", the burgundy, which before then had never at any time been available for sale!
