TUDOR SUBMARINER 79190
WHY THIS WATCH - FULLY SERVICED, ALL ORIGINAL - GREAT CONDITION
THINGS TO MENTION - NO ORIGINAL PAPERS
The Tudor Submariner began its life just one year after the Rolex Submariner in 1954 with the introduction of the 7922. A 37mm wide oyster case with no crown guards, matte dial with a rose logo and high grade generic movement that was more affordable than what its big sister Rolex all came together to form the foundation of what was a very successful line for Tudor. As the 7922 propelled the Tudor Sub off the ground, the 79190 guided it safely back down and into retirement after a 44 year lifespan. It can be said then that the most applicable, adaptable and hardwearing of the Tudor Submariners was the 79190 given its the amalgamation of all its predecessors. The 79190 is very similar to the Rolex 16800 and should really also be called the 'transitional' model. Both the 79190 and the 16800 held a large oyster case, with a 20mm lug width and a 12mm height and moved their respective models from a 'vintage' watch with a plexi crystal and a matte dial into a 'modern' watch with a sapphire crystal and a gloss dial. The comparative price of the latter 76100 / 79090 / 79190 is the cheapest amongst the model line so offers the best value if you are searching for a Tudor Sub. You can be hard pushed to find 'investment' Tudor's but the Submariner is without doubt THE investment Tudor.
This example is presented on the original oyster bracelet, with all elements of both the watch and strap in great condition. The case is still thick and has had minimal polishing in its life. The dial, hands and bezel are original and are starting to show some early signs of patina. The ETA 2824-2 movement has been fully serviced by our highly skilled and decorated watchmaker in preparation for the sale. There is no original papers, however the original box is included along with previous purchase paperwork from Watchfinder in 2019 and current service warranty cards.
