    Various sites are predicting a blue BB58 being released on the 30th. Seems legit as based on distributed pricelists.

    No doubt will create a bit of a stir

    Few photoshopped pics floating around but would prefer to wait and see what it looks like so will not pollute the thread with a photoshopped estimate

    Personally I would of liked a 39mm pelagos but I'm sure this will be interesting

    The shade of blue used will make or break imo

    There's a chance for Tudor to bring back the heraldic Tudor Rose on the dial... if they finally got it !

    That's actually a really nice watch, if I were to ever buy a new Tudor I think a blue BB58 would be it

    Yeah, I’ve got the current one on bracelet. I’d pick this up on strap or fabric which would hopefully be easier.

    I do hope they do a blue dial as well as bezel however.

    Blue dial, blue bezel and no gilt is what is being touted by those who claim to have seen it.

    I gotta say, I feel the same way unless there are some accent colors (as in the 2nd mockup above). Same way I think the BB blue is my least favorite in the collection. The red is really bold, the black has that nice pop of red, and the steel screams 'tool watch' to me. The blue just looks too understated.

    It’s more likely to be like this I think - according to those who ‘know’ blue bezel, blue dial and no gilt.

    I quite like it if this is it even if it seems a little lazy. although I have to say I’ll likely prefer the original which I have on now.

    this to me would be a fail. but with Tudor you just never know. . bb58 was so great and followed up with that crazy P01 ??

    I've seen lots of people on all the watch forums asking for a blue dial, blue bezel BB58 over the last two years. So plenty will be happy with this if it turns out to be the case. I'll be getting one for sure.

    I'd be into a 58'd version of the standard Blue, but I'll have to see how it turns out. I haven't been a big fan of the flat blue color Tudor has used for their dials on the Pelagos, so if it's that I'll likely pass.

    I hope this makes getting the black dial BB58 easier

    Well, it’s what was thought I guess. Looks quite flat but obvs need to see without the stickers on and in real light.

    One of the things I like About the original is that it pops a bit with the gilt and the slightly off white lume. This might be a little sterile....

    Need to see it in person and while undoubtedly interesting and probably what people want, for me it lacks elements that made the original BB58 so attractive and provided the depth and warmth.

    The lume seems stark and the handset seems very bold, but that's purely based on the above.

    We may learn more tomorrow.

    I learnt with the blue alpinist that photos can make a watch look very very different so I'll be going to see this is person.
