1992 Tudor Submariner (Ref. 79090) Blue Dial "Ghost Insert"
Although Tudor made Submariner references containing the "snowflake" dial well into the mid 1980's, in 1978 Tudor introduced a new dial format of the Oyster Prince Submariner which included round and triangular indexes as seen on this 1992 Tudor Submariner Ref 79090. Ultimately this new dial format would replace the "snowflake" configuration and would last well into the late 1990's on the Tudor Submariner line of timepieces. This specific example possess a very stunning "Ghost" bezel insert that has faded into a light grey blue coloration.This Tudor 79090 retains the original Rolex signed trip-lock crown, and tudor 9315 folded link oyster bracelet with tudor signed flip lock clasp.
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 as a result of the faded ghost insert and deep blue circle/triangle dial configuration.
