Room for two?

I’ve had my BB58 for 3 years and I still enjoy it. Recently I’ve been eyeing the Pelagos 39 because look at it. Is it redundant to own two black dial Tudor divers with similar designs? I know most will say buy what you like but would you?

They kinda both exist in the "desk diver" category of watches. I have the 39 and it's a great watch!

Depends on where you are in your collecting journey. I've probably seen/owned enough dive watches to know that I'm good at this point, but you could be different. You may gravitate towards this design - many collectors and enthusiasts do. And if that's the case, and you can buy, go right ahead.

The P39 is a great watch, very tempting in fact. But I’ll pass since I have the BB58.

I have the BB54. The new BB monochrome has got me interested, but I’m wanting to expand my diver brand range a bit and looking more seriously at the Seiko 62MAS reiterations from a few years back and the newest one. You’ll make your right call

·

I’ve got the 58 and a monochrome black diver. The 58 lives on a tropic strap and the other lives on the original bracelet. I think the tropic straps works well with the 58 vintage vibe and makes them two totally different wears. Definitely room for both.

At least this is what I tell myself.

·

I have the bb58 and love it. But I am a huge fan of the pelagos and I think it would suit me and my lifestyle a bit more but unfortunately I have to live in the limitations of my budget LOL.

·

I have a bb58 and my husband the 39 and personally I find them absolutely different. I would (and did 😜) totally get both if you like them. The bb58 is a warm nostalgic some what elegant watch, the 39 is modern minimalist and more tool like feel compared to the 58. That’s just my thoughts ☺️

·

1 vintage style and 1 modern, definitely room for both.

·

I would buy the new one and hang on to the old one, but consider it as saleable if a great watch opportunity arises. That’s what I would do. I love the new Tudor monochrome! It might be my favourite Tudor now.

·

Yeah. I’d sell the 58 and get the Pelagos, which you probably should have gotten the first time, cause, just look at it…

Really though. The Pelagos is the best of Tudor, along with the Heritage Chrono blue.

·

I have the BB54 and Tudor Pelagos 39 (P39). A BB58 and P39 can coexist in the same collection, because the former (BB58) is vintage inspired, whereas the latter (P39) is a modern, professional dive watch.

·

I have a an LHD, a BB41 ETA, a BB54 and a Harrods BB41 and although that might seem completely ridiculous (it is completely ridiculous), oddly enough they each speak their own language and present differently. Whether it be the occasion, the outfit, the straps, etc. I always tend to grab them all for their own reasons. I say go for it... or wait for the color variant that Im sure will come out later this year, or next. Post pics if/when you pick one up!

·

I'd say it's different enough. One has crown guards and is made of titanium which has a different sheen to it. Totally different in personality vs the Bb 58 which even has the gilt sub atyle dial over a snowflake.

Powwow

Thanks, I’ve also got the SPB143. Is there such a thing as too many divers?

That’s an awesome combo!

depends on how large your collection is.

two divers of similar size from a similar company, but they have a different ethos. one is modern and tooly and the other is vintage inspired with a bit more polish. i could def see them fitting if you have 8+ watches, but could feel a bit cozy or too overlapped in a 4-6 watch set.

also, obligatory reminder not to check off boxes of watch types (a dress, a chrono, etc). buy for your lifestyle and interests, not for diversity of cateory X or Y.

I keep my collection around 10 so there is room. Really like your obligatory reminder! Don’t need to check boxes (one reason I don’t own a chronograph).

Most normal people would say it’s redundant. They look alike. Most people on here would say there’s absolutely room to have both in a collection, there’s no such thing as too many divers.

But, on a serious note, I’d say if you’re gonna wear both regularly then get the Pelagos 39.

·

There is always space for one more 😉 Palagos would be something to consider I'd say.

·

I own a few Black Bay series. Not a fan of titanium, too light for my feel. It’s just me, I’d say no to Pelagos.

·

While they are similar they are different enough to own both.

·

Bro… there is NO redundancy… St. Steel vs titanium… to make it even more different, keep one on the bracelet and be playful with the traps os the other. My BB58 looks amazing on RAF NATO or leather ( yes I love leather for desk divers)

I don’t own either - but I love the patina look of the BB58 compared to the other one.

·

The pelagos is a very modern watch even though it’s the same size as the 58 it will feel different and look different enough to live alongside the bb58 no doubt

·

I wouldn't, I would probably have just the one. But I couldn't pick myself. For the 58 is the retro air, for the Pelagos it's the lightness. Both can have interesting strap choices.

However, if the Pelagos 39 was available in blue, I would get both. (I would also prefer a date window on both, and that's more likely than me owning any of these)

·

Always room for both if your budget allows? The pelagos range is the best part of Tudor in my opinion.

·

I have the Pelagos 39 . Perfect however you look at it .

·

I have a BB58, Black Bay Chrono, a Submariner, and a Planet Ocean. I plan on buying the new Monochrome Black Bay or a Pelagos. I also own two 40mm PRX automatics with different dial colors. So you know where I’m coming from. Buy what you like!!!!

Until recently, I had three and enjoyed each one. Only sold to move to another piece. Go for it.

·

I’d get both and just keep one in the end… 🍻
