UP for grabs is a Tudor Submariner Date
798,XXX serial number circa late 1972 production. This is an early 9411/0 which still uses the same dial typography as 7021’s
Amazing condition case with clearly unpolished lugs and crown guards. The watch is as found and presented as such with all the dirt and dust you see between the lugs, under bezel, etc. It is important to show this watch in this form to reassure you of any part swaps or refinishes. It can all be cleaned up at buyer’s request.
The dial is original, blue with orange patina developed on plots and hands. Crystal appears original and has scratches from wear. Dial shows the typical degradation of these dials, but it is not severe like in most cases where paint is literally chipped off or heavily bubbled.
Bezel insert is original, still has its factory tritium pearl and has a nice blue fade.
Bracelet is original Rolex rivet C&I commonly used on these watches in the US market. It is correctly stamped with ’72 date and remains in similar condition to the case with unpolished links and tight condition.
Watch was found and is accompanied by a Rolex box set, Tudor wallet, Tudor hang tag with serial number, and Tudor warranty papers with punched serial number. This type of stamp font was specifically used on some watches in the US market during this time.
Caseback is original, very sharp and clearly unpolished, as well.
