A 40mm, Reference 79090, Stainless Steel Tudor Prince Oysterdate Submariner - a 1992 watch in fantastic condition with original Tudor box. 

A Rolex Submariner in all but brand name and movement, their sister company Tudor have seen their popularity skyrocket in the past few decades thanks to their close affiliation and design similarity with Rolex. This watch, which comes in a red Tudor box, is even packaged with a polishing cloth bearing both Tudor and Rolex logos on it. Flipping the watch over reveals an Oyster case back made by Rolex, bearing their crown and name. 

Make no mistakes though, this is a Tudor, and a beautiful one at that. The dial bears Tudor's iconic 'Shield' logo, and has seen a lovely vintage patination effect across the hour plots, which have begun to age into a slightly creamy tone. This is most pronounced on the mercedes hour hand, which has aged slightly darker in the outermost third. The lollipop seconds hand is in perfect nick. The quickset date eye at 3:00 has a cyclops above it, allowing for improved date legibility from different angles.

The case, in overall excellent condition, features a screw-down Rolex crown at 3:00 and a bi-directional rotating bezel with Rolex's iconic first quartile tachymetric design. The solid Tudor bracelet is in great condition, with only a few minute scratches on the outer edges of the 12:00 side bracelet half. The case back shows the most wear of any of the watch, with a few small scuffs and marks around the notched ring used to remove the case back. 

What's on offer

A stunning 1992 Tudor Submariner with box and international warranty booklet (unsigned/undated).

The Tudor Oyster 78500 bracelet is new as it was replaced only a few days ago at a cost of approx. £700.00 and has not yet been worn, so no sign of wear or use. We also believe that the bezel insert is a very recent Tudor replacement as this is in excellent/mint condition too!

Whilst the watch does show some signs of age, these are arguably minimal and even desirable, in particularly regarding the dial lume plots, which have aged and discoloured beautifully.
