Parkbury's View: This is Tudor's first proper GMT watch, especially with their first ever in-house GMT movement. I've always loved the vintage Rolex Pepsi-bezel GMT Master and this one is such a brilliant Tudor version.
Dunn's Assessment: Alrighty then! One of my most favorite Tudor watches to be released in the last few years. The wearability is just immense for this beauty. Any condition, any time, any day. If you ever wanted a "one watch" collection, this should be a strong consideration.
Story behind the watch: Unlike the rest of the BlackBay lineup, the Tudor 79830RB does not take from any previous Tudor reference, but rather directly from the Rolex GMT-Master series of watches. Despite the similar lineage, these are both very different watches. This Tudor BB range feels a lot more of a tool watch and easier for daily use.
