This 1995 Tudor Chrono Ref. 79160 is a true collector's piece and is in stunning original condition. The early Tudor Chronograph references are commonly referred to as the Tudor "Big Blocks" as the mid-case size is thicker and heavier than the big brother Rolex Daytona references.
The early Tudor Chronograph references do share a lot of common traits with the big brother Rolex Daytona references including the same bezel with the black acrylic tachometer insert as well as the Rolex Trip-Lock crown and screw down pushers. The dial on this specific Tudor reference 79160 is also very similar to the Rolex Daytona's of this era as it possesses the stick applied markers and a stunning silver surface that is reminiscent of the Rolex Daytona 6263 of the same era which also possesses black stepped subdials with the white Chrono hands located within the subdials. The workhorse Valjoux 7750 movement is signed Tudor and has been fully serviced backed by our one-year warranty.
