Montres Tudor SA has designed, manufactured and marketed Tudor watches since March of 1946. Rolex founder Hans Wildorf created Tudor to create a product for authorized Rolex dealers at a cheaper price than Rolex, while still offering the same quality product as a Rolex. Offered here is Tudor’s version of the Rolex Submariner, which debuted in the 1950s. This particular example dates to 1967, and features a matte non-chapter ring dial, instead with hashes that run to the edge of the dial. Further, it has been dubbed the “small rose” dial, due to the smaller size of the rose, compared to other Ref. 7928 dial variations.
This Tudor Submariner is in excellent vintage condition. The case has been previously polished, but lightly with original beveled edges clearly visible. The dial is in great condition, with no wear, chips, scratches, etc. The original tritium lume is still present on both dial and hands, aged to a beautiful yellow.
The watch comes equipped on a Rolex folded link 7836/382 bracelet, in excellent condition, with 13 full links and no stretch.
