1965 Tudor Submariner (Ref. 7928) "Tropical Chapter Ring Dial"
The Tudor Submariner Ref. 7928 was first introduced in 1960. The Ref. 7928 is like the little brother to the Rolex 5513/5512 references as they share many of the same exact parts and similar design elements. Interestingly, the Rolex Submariner and the Tudor Submariner were actually developed at the same time and launched just a few months apart from each other. The Tudor Submariner Ref 7928 is just as handsome as the big brother Rolex 5512/5513 references but possess a unique charm and feeling that is distinctly Tudor!
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.
"Tropical" Gilt Capter Ring
2 pc Leather Strap
CASE & BRACELET
The case retains thick and even lugs showing slight bevels down the case and very thick crown gaurds. The faded "fat font" insert remains in excellent condition, retaining the pearl which was replaced at some point as it is luminova filled. The case retains the original and era correct Rolex 7mm "Twin-Lock" crown that does not exhibit dots or underline. The watch will come supplied on a vintage style two piece strap
DIAL & HANDS
The gorgeous glossy chapter ring dial remains in an amazing vintage condition that has taken on an excellent deep espresso patina consistent throughout the dial. The lume plots have achieved a stunningly warm and golden like patina, and remain fully intact and when viewed under U.V. light show no lume degradation. The hands have been previously color matched to the dial.
None. The watch was just serviced and running perfectly at COSC spec and backed by a 1-year warranty on the accuracy of timekeeping
