Thoughts on Tudor BB58?

Thinking about it for my next watch - don’t have a nice sports watch yet, my nice ones are all dress (DJ, Portuguese Chrono).

Normal BB too big, I like that it’s 39mm

I kind of like it on the OEM fabric strap too but feel like I’d want to get the bracelet too (worth the extra $325?)

Are they in high demand? I see on chrono24 they are above retail.
