Do you guys like the 39mm BB58?
« on: October 23, 2021, 03:44:42 PM »
Hi all! Was just wondering if you guys prefer the 41mm version or the 39mm version more! Maybe you guys can share me your thoughts!

100% the 39mm. It’s slimmer, lighter and looks better in person. There’s a reason why 39mm always out of stock in the ADs

Personally i prefer the 39mm too because of the slimmer case as well… but I can understand for those with bigger wrists the 41mm may be a better fit. But then again I also wear a 44mm Panerai and yet love the BB58.

Thats kinda true too. I myself have a rather small wrist. I tried the 41mm on but it seem abit too big for my liking. Also quite bulky! Quite amazed by how just 2mm can make such huge difference..

I love the look of the BB58 but it wears very small on my wrist. I can only admire the watch from afar.

Very much prefer the 58. The 20mm lug width works with all my other watch straps and makes my life easier  :Laughing_on_floor:

Thanks, bro! If you have a slightly smaller wrist, then the BB58 is the way to go....(ps: my bracelet is aftermarket btw)

wow nice! maybe you shud rekindle your love with a change of straps...like our abang pleasuresaurus - he has aplenty. haha!

Oh and @dpkong, I did a lil coverage within another thread on this here

https://www.malaysiawatchforum.com/index.php?topic=22368.125

Bought the strap from Strapcode - brought it in from HK. paid about +/- RM600 shipped. personally, I love this bracelet in terms of the looks vs the original faux rivets. Of course, the finish is not as refined as the original, but acceptable and the fine adjustments is a plus!

But wait, there's even more racun! Uncle Seiko has a new range of bracelets for the 58 as well, a Jubilee and President style, along with additional half links to help with more accurate sizing.

If there's one thing I like about the 58, it's a veritable strap monster. This thing is up there with the best of them, like the Moonwatch and Submariner, when it comes to strap options. It just stays fresh-looking all the time.

@bulletnos yeah maybe i should start looking at more strap alternatives too! i quite like the rivet-less strap tho!

@pleasuresaurus looks like i might have to spend money again. hahahahah. lets see how it goes. am still thinking of another daily watch/beater that is versatile currently. but dont have any specific watch models in mind yet.

I can't find any better option for a casual wear than the BB58, definitely is a must-have in the collection for me

I have rather small wrist so a BB58 at 39mm fits my wrist just right!

Its personal, to me, 39mm is an elegant size. I am not elegant, hence I prefer 41mm and above  :D

Depends on your preference.

Well, in case ur concerned about size, dont have to be - I for one use a 44mm PAM90 that fits my size (IMO) - and wear the 39mm BB58 with ease as well…

It’s still a new piece.
Probably after a few months I’ll be able to tell if there’s sign of tarnishing
