Serviced to perfection, this amazing Tudor Prince Oyster Date is a legitimate Snowflake Submariner with possible MilSpec provenance.. the case back tells us the history of it being worn on a NATO has ingrained itself on the case back after years of it being worn on a NATO strap, the case back will always see a design as you see it on the case back. The watch was received here at PTC with a very heavy condensation, and due to this, there is a bubbling effect on the black dial, models like the 7021/0 are very seriously affected by moisture, and despite everyone's best intentions, the dial produced in Switzerland by BEYELER at this time, were prone to that bubbling effects. It is not flaking, and is very clean, as you also see from the picture I have taken when the dial was removed, the movement's roulette wheel date were also visible. Since then, it has been lovingly brought back to life, using the best Swiss watchmaking techniques I have learned throughout my career. A fabulous +/- 10 seconds per day can be expected with this super rugged look on this time piece. The watch is presented in as is, as found, and no polishing of any kind has been undertaken on this watch. I believe that it was never attempted at.
This is the reason that, when you see this watch, a lot of angle pictures will tell you that the watch is untouched, it is rough, and yes it looks hammered, but never polished.
The insert on it, has turned bluish from the 1970s and shows a lot of use. Everything in collecting Submariners are ticked boxes on this unique Tudor Submariner, it sure is a collector's delight. Own a watch like this, and it is a racing car on your wrist, it is a survivor, and it will surely survive a further 50 years - watch upkeep is a must, if you wish to keep maintaining a Submariner of this quality and verve, please maintain it by servicing it every 5-7 years. An authentic "TOP HAT" crystal reference #125 was used on this very important watch.
More pics are available on request. Serial # 74xxxx dates from IV.70 or 4th quarter of 1970. I would like to point out, there might have been a bracelet on this watch, as very clearly the bracelets' end pieces have made marks underneath the lugs of this Submariner. Another Tudor bracelet reference 9315 can be sourced, if you desire one with this time piece, please allow for a week or so to source one.
