Latest Rolex AD showcase

The shortage of Rolex is still on. And it’s all over the world, I got those pictures from a friend. After the election day in the US, all luxury brands are closed because they worry about the riot, Rolex is not worried at all.

New Tudor Black Bay Heritage 58

In March of 2018, we saw the first true evolution of the original 41mm model – the new Black Bay Fifty-Eight. Sized at 39mm.

Tudor has announced this new “Navy Blue” model on July 1st, 2020.

The blue version of the Fifty-Eight was one of the main predictions people had that Tudor would release. Then Baselworld was announced canceled and Tudor left us hanging with their releases. But now, finally, on the 1st of July 2020, Tudor has released the blue Fifty-Eight.

The Tudor Heritage Black Bay 79030B has the 39mm stainless steel case that we have come to love. This case stays true to vintage Tudor dive watches not only in terms of design but also in size.

How to date your Tudor watch with random serial numbers?

The easiest and best way to date your modern Tudor watch is if you have the original certificate for your watch. If you do, the date of which the watch was purchased should be on the certificate. Simply confirm that the serial number on your Tudor watch matches the serial number that is engraved on your Tudor.

If you don’t have the original certificate for your watch, it gets a bit trickier. The good news is that Tudor has information about every single watch that has left the factory, which is registered through their individual serial numbers. The bad news is that this information can be difficult, if not impossible to access.
