And here it is, live from Basel, thanks to my friend Ross from TudorCollector, the new Heritage Blue Bay with Snowflake hands with perfectly matching white luminous instead of vintage patina, now the design is finally in harmony, blue and snowflake hands, thats how we collectors know this  combination. The previous red Black Bay was a bit disappointing although Tudor’s reintroduction of the Big Crown was well made, the typical snowflake hands needed blue to come to totally satisfaction imho. The matte dial and silver print really make the dial pop out! A pity the case is still quit thick and a ETA movement is still ticking in there, my preferences would be a simple automatic, much thinner, Rolex manufacture caliber to get all dimensions at its best. Maybe next year, for now, The Blue Snowflake is out, halleluja :<)

The blue Nato strap matches perfectly and gives the Blue Bay a rugged feeling. Many buyers out there will adore this combination, it’s a touch of modern vintage, perfectly for a daily beater and spot on in tone, it’s seems there blue is not to bright but more elegant and classy, just how we like it. Well done Davide Cerrato!
