RARE 1978 R.C.N Tudor Submariner (Ref. 9401/0) "Hybrid Snowflake"

This 1978 Royal Canadian Navy issued Tudor Submariner is very rare and a specific variant that is rarely seen. One could argue that these particular "Mil Sub" variants of the Tudor 9401/0 non-date Submariner that were issued to the Royal Canadian Navy are one of the most interesting out of all the "Mil Subs" known to exist. These specific 9401/0's possess a dial that is very similar to matte Tudor 9401/0's with the standard dial meaning the dial maintains the typical triangular lume plot at 12, rectangular plots at the “3-6-9” o'clock positions and circular lume plots for the other hour markers, The exciting thing is that these specific R.C.N Tudor 9401/0's are fitted with “snowflake” handsets.

Another interesting and known fact for the Tudor (Ref. 9401/0) "Hybrid Snowflake is that the serial range is quite unique and sits in the 88XXXX- 89XXXX so the production window for the watch is very small and quite unique as most of the known examples have consecutive serial numbers in the 8XXXXX range. This is a very interesting Tudor that is seldom seen with a very distinctive and unique look. It has also been said that a reference like this one we are featuring here at Craft + Tailored is the precursor to the very popular and modern Tudor Black Bay as an example from the Tudor archive inspired the Black Bay Design.

The case remains thick and full with the case chamfers clearly visible showing honest wear from use. The bezel insert is in wonderful condition retaining a deep black coloration with the tritium filled pearl still intact. The case retains it's original Rolex signed trip-lock crown. The watch will come supplied on a NATO strap.


The matte black "radial" dial remains in flawless vintage condition showing no blemishes or marks. The lume has taken on a wonderfully creamy and almost ivory like patina, under U.V. light inspection the lume exhibits no degradation or lume loss. additionally, the original tritium "snowflake" hands match the dial perfectly. The sweep seconds hand was color matched previous to our acquisition.


The watch is keeping time at spec, the previous owner had the watch serviced at LA WatchWorks and the watch will come accompanied with the service receipts from its most recent service.
