Up for grabs is a Tudor “Snowflake” Submariner, circa 1982. Tudor is better known as the “sister” brand to Rolex – originally formed as a more affordable alternative to that of a Rolex. In recent years, Tudor has exploded in popularity amongst collectors, with prices often eclipsing those of their Rolex counterparts. This example is a highly sought-after “Snowflake” Submariner, so-called for the snowflake-like appearance of the hour hand.
This Tudor Submariner is in excellent vintage condition. The case appears unpolished, with original beveled edges (“chamfers”), and sharp edges. The dial is in excellent condition, with no flaws, chips, etc. The original tritium lume is present in both hands and dial, aged to a golden and vibrant yellow.
The watch comes with a Tudor-branded folded-link 9315 bracelet with 380 endlinks, and has 11 links, with very light stretch.
