Uh-Oh. I was safe while that design was only 36mm.

Utterly timeless. What's not to like?

I'd prefer the crown was better integrated. Its sitting out like a bunion on that collar.

I think that except it being a tribute to the "big crown" Subs, it's also more than reminiscent of the 1930s-1940s Oyster-cased sports/field/tool watches with big crowns, like the ones here (pics stolen from the Internets):

Truth be told, I'm not sure where Tudor was exactly going with the BB36, as they already have a "poor man's Explorer", the Heritage Ranger. Anyway, the non-diver BB is a nice design, and I'd say kudos to Tudor for making it in two size versions, which maintain the same or very similar proportions of all design features, so that both the fans of smaller and bigger field watches effectively get the same thing.
