TUDOR PRINCE DATE CHRONOGRAPH 79280
TUDOR CHRONOGRAPH 79280
WHY THIS WATCH - FULLY SERVICED, ORIGINAL PAPERS AND BOOKLET, ORIGINAL CASEBACK STICKER
THINGS TO MENTION - VERY SLIGHT WEAR ON THE CASE
One of the last ranges of Tudor watches to bear resemblance of those from parent company Rolex. They rounded out the vision of founder Hans Wilsdorf to create a brand equal to Rolex in design and performance but at a more affordable price point. The 792xx range continues with the aesthetic of the 94xxx and 791xx chronograph ranges but with a slimmer case profile. Gone are the 'Big Block' style case sides and in are slightly rounded, narrower sides giving the watch more wearable dimensions. The 792xx's offered the same dial and bezel combinations of the 791xx's, but later added more dial colour/finish options, different case material options and the, sometimes divisive, TIGER (Woods) collaboration. Regardless of dial and bezel combination, the influence of the Rolex Daytona is obvious throughout.
This example is offered with a polished tachymetre bezel, silver guilloche dial with applied arabic numerals, and comes with the original sharkskin leather strap and solid end links. All elements of the watch and strap are in very good condition and show little signs of wear. They are accompanied by the original box, translation paperwork, operation manual and warranty paperwork. The original caseback sticker is present on the reverse and still intact. The valjoux 7750 movement has been fully serviced in preparation for the sale by our highly qualified watchmaker and comes with service receipt. We wouldn't go as far as to say these are collectors pieces just yet, but we'd wager a safe bet that they will be in years to come, and will likely continue their rise in value.
