Not bad,with the exception of that freaking hour hand.

Damn. The few articles I've been able to find indicate the GMT hand is quickset, not the main hour hand. I would have bought one sometime this year, otherwise.

I hope the early press is incorrect and the movement functions more like a GMT Master.

I stand corrected! Looking at the user guide on Tudor's website, the main hour hand is independent of the minutes hand. I will be figuring out how to fit this into the budget in the next 12 months or so...

I don't like it. I can't say why exactly, but maybe there're too many snowflakes there or something. It looks pretty generic, actually.

Some of the looks of the original GMT-Master, in a case with no crown guards? This is genuinely erection-inducing. Especially on the bracelet (did I really say that? Well, looks like I just did).

T'aint bad, but I like other variations (not to mention other Tudor models) better. The Black Bay's getting a wee bit played out - don't get me wrong, it's well deserved its popularity - but I'm kinda gravitating to other looks.

I really like it a lot, though it's the bronze version I'm lusting after...

Looks generic. Did they borrow the design from Steinhart?

Actually, I was going to bring up Steinhart, but, you know, I like to spare people's feelings. This is part of the New Conjurer 3.0.

And it doesn't have the goofy hour hand.
