Description

This exquisite Tudor Submariner 7016/0 is offered by PTC as a fairly unique un-polished example! When it was brought in, immediately the first thing that came to mind was that as a ‘tool watch’ this watch has not seen much wear, as accorded to other time pieces especially Submariners that have come from this era. A real 100% un-polished case is just part of the equation. It’s clean dial, and Mercedes style hands have gone almost green from ageing, the tritium in the dial and hands has dried, the effect of color on the front is eye catching. This watch was produced in the Fourth quarter of 1968 making it the second execution of the Reference 7016/0 this case was first initiated with the ETA calibre 2483 in early January of the same year, a pre-production model with a different case back that I own has a date of I.68 – this one here, as you can see in the pictures is IV.68.
The watch is performing well, and the service history is unknown. As a rule, watches like these are always tested whilst being enjoyed, on the wrist! Worn for 72 hours, the watch performs admirably, the timing is excellent, and the automatic winding mechanism is also flawless in it’s mounting and re-mounting of the mechanism. The watch has never been serviced more than once it seems. There are no case back markings at all. Once serviced around a couple of years ago, the gentleman watchmaker who serviced it, kept everything as original as possible, and thankfully he never polished the case. He may have however, changed the crown and tube system to a more modern triplock crown and tube. That is the only change I have noticed in this amazing time piece.
I have installed a NATO James Bond band with the authentic green and burgundy stripes. A host of vintage leather straps are available to choose from to complement it. As it was found as you see it, and sans a metal diver’s extension bracelet it could also be possible too to entail a sale with a reference 9315 bracelet. This can be organised upon request, as there was no bracelet with it’s purchase.
It is one of the better ones that I have ever seen, un-polished case, super clean dial, great patina on the dial and hands. The serial # dates from 1969-1970 so the case back inside markings are pretty accurate. Serial # 7XX,7XX interesting numbers indeed.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
