*Unpolished* 1966 Tudor Submariner (Ref. 7928) Glossy Gilt Dial

The Tudor Submariner ref. 7928 was first introduced in 1960 and the ref. 7928 is very much the little brother to the extremely sought-after Rolex 5513/5512 references as they share many of the exact same parts and design elements. We think the Tudor Submariner ref. 7928 is just as handsome as its big brother Rolex 5512/5513 but possesses a unique charm and feeling that is distinctly Tudor and speaks a bit louder to the esotericist that lurks within all watch collectors.

This would make a great addition to a growing collection or be a great first piece as it retains the classic and timeless look of the Submariner while being unique and eye-catching.
