Among the vintage 1960s Tudors, this 1969 reference 7017/0 pulled apparent influence from its classic Rolex counterpart. On the exterior, it’s virtually identical to the Rolex Day-Date reference 1802 that was introduced in 1958. Nevertheless, the Tudor 7017/0 is larger: 39mm in diameter compared to the Rolex’s 36mm.The other obvious difference between the Tudor Day-Date and the Rolex Day-Date is their weight. The Rolex Day-Dates are always in a precious metal while the Tudor was only offered in two tone or stainless steel.
This specific Tudor Day-Date example is a very cool piece. It is functional due to the fact that it displays the day and the date, but the larger case size and stainless steel case make it a very versatile and functional timepiece. this would make a unique and functional daily driver that would is suitable in many settings casual to formal.
