I can't decide which Black Bay to buy, there are so many variations. Isn't it a requirement that your first Tudor be a Black Bay? I also like the Ranger and the 1926.

Meanwhile, Tudor has gone and sponsored a cycling team. I might just get one of their jerseys.

I noticed their clothing is Swiss(Assos), their bikes are Swiss (BMC), their wheels are Swiss, and their watches are Swiss.

Breitling has also co-sponsored a cycling team; it has a weird name: Q36.5

Richard Mille has been a partner with some pro cycling teams; Tadej Pogacar used to wear his $250k watch while racing.

And you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Tissot advertisement at the Tour de France. Must be tens of thousands of Tissot signs out there.

There really are soooooo many variations. I can't get over the mismatch of the snowflake hands and the round lume plots...

I went old school and picked up close to what the "original" black bay was.

With that said, you can't go wrong with any of them. I'd recommend the 58 size over the full size. 54 is probably even better.
