1964 Tudor Oyster-Prince Date (Ref. 7966/0) Satin Silver "Small Rose Dial"

The Rolex/Tudor relationship dates back to 1926 when Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex SA, wanted to create a more affordable wristwatch alternative that still maintained a high quality of craftsmanship. Tudor manufactured wristwatches adjacent to Rolex for many years, which featured more affordable non-inhouse Swiss movements, whilst still utilizing Rolex's case designs and manufacturing processes. Even though Tudor shares many similarities with its older brother Rolex, Tudor's designs tended to differentiate from the Rolex formula to make for some uniquely fantastic timepieces in their own right.

The case back retains all of its original factory engravings in crisp and deep condition. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.


The original satin silver "small rose" dial with raised black enameled Arabic numeral markers is an aesthetic marvel and remains in virtually flawless condition. The tritium lume plots all remain intact but some of the plots exhibit gentle degradation when inspected under UV light, the patina pattern ranges from creamy yellow to grey which is common in this era. The original tritium alpha-style hands match the dial perfectly and exhibit no degradation under UV light inspection.


None. The watch is keeping time, but the service history is unknown. A movement service can be provided upon request.
