Up for grabs is a Tudor “Snowflake” Submariner, circa 1981 (95xxxx). 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 great vintage condition. The case has been previously polished, but is still with a thick case, and even lugs. 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 original bezel insert has a nice faded appearance with light wear.
The watch comes with a Rolex 93150 bracelet with 580 endlinks, and has 11 links, with almost no stretch.
