^^ I agree. The underside of the sub isn't a great selling point.

I don't post often but had to in this case to say thanks for a great review. I've been looking at Subs recently and while the Black Bay was initially considered, the Sub was still top of the list. After reading your careful comparison, I'm going to do some more research on the Black Bay before going any further.

As a matter of interest, what's your view on how these watches compare with the CW Tridents Mk2 and 3?

For me as a owner of both a 5 midget sub and BB58 it would be the Tudor

Thanks.

It’s certainly worth checking out the BB58 before you decide. The BB58 feels completely different on the wrist to the 41mm case Black Bay models.

I guess the point that I wear both of the watches in my review about ten times more than I wear any of my Mk2 Tridents is in itself a comparative review. I don’t have a Mk3 Trident, however when I tried one on I thought that the proportions of the 40mm case were far better than the Mk2 in 38mm or 43mm.

Thanks for that. I have two Trident Mk2s, both 43mm, so that gives me some good perspective.
