The Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight

On the wrist, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight is simply superior to most other sports watches within the Rolex family, save perhaps the Explorer I or the Daytona. It is svelte and subtle, and the proper design elements have been brought into this watch to make it true to its roots. We have a rivet style bracelet, lovely matte finishing on the case (with nice wide bevels), a matte dial with gilt finishing, a date-less dial configuration, and a crown stem without any coloring. It is simple and pure and awesome… More at Hodinkee.

Of all the watches announced at Baselworld 2018, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight stood out to me precisely because it is not designed to stand out. Close to perfect.
