    I agree.

    I don't see how Rolex bringing out a Blue bezels sub would help the blue bezel BB? So I'm guessing you were kidding. The Pepsi BB GMT is already being slightly discounted on the grey market and my AD has two in the case at retail so they are not all that hard to get. In a few months, they should be at some higher level of discount.
    I figure demand for a blue bezel Sub and the inevitable six year waiting lists will mean people will be looking for an alternative, and since the Submariner would just be an homage to the Black Bay, blue bezel Black Bay demand will increase, which should bump the prices.

    Hope if the Coke comes out it has the Jubilee bracelet.
    They have both in the article, but, no offense, the jubilee bracelet is ugly, overly shiny, and jangly looking. It doesnít belong in a sport or professional watch.

    Highly doubtful. I would expect an expansion of the Black Bay 58 line and maybe a solid bezel GMT. Although, if they were going to do a white dial, Tudor would be the company to do it.

    I love white dials, but not in this example.

    BB blues are so available that I donít see a demand growing. Personally I donít see the BB blue being the alternative to it. Pelagos maybe since it has more similar features and a ceramic bezel not the fragile aluminum insert which should never be on a watch at this price point. Most people know they can buy it, use for a year or two and recover most of the cost on a Pelagos.

    All these things applied to the jubilee of old. I went into the Pepsi with an open mind. It is none of the things you described except for the shiny part ( and remember the oyster has more shiny since it has PCLs). What you failed to pick up on is it is twice as comfortable as the oyster which I did not think was possible (remember I had a BLNR). Itís also more historically correct.
    Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. The only way I would prefer the Oyster would be if it had the glidelock clasp. That will not happen so I would prefer the jubilee on the coke. Back when this was first rumored (early January)to come out I put my name on the list at my AD for the coke and the polar white Explorer and Explorer II with the ceramic insert. Not really interest in the Milgauss unless it does not look like what they mocked up. This is the third year Iíve put in for the ceramic bezeled Explorer II.

    Now that I would be interested in if the bezel is ceramic. Iím making the assumption this would have the applied indexes that the BB line has and not just a printed dial as rendered.
