$4,250.00

Tudor 18K YG Oyster Prince ref 7809 circa 1957. Featuring a 34mm diameter Oyster case with original antique white dial with gold raised triangular shaped indexes, printed Tudor flower logo, and tapered dauphine hands. Dial signed Tudor Oyster Prince, Rotor Self Winding, and signed SWISS. Powered by self winding Rolex based caliber 390 movement with sweep seconds.

An unusal 18K gold model with original dial, period gold screw down crown, and powered by the same base Rolex 390 movement as the Tudor early reference 7928 Submariner.

NOTE: while the dial is signed SWISS, designating the use of radium as the luminous material,  and the luminous dots on the dial are entirely original, the dial does not register radium when tested with a geiger counter. Presumably, the luminous material is tritium, even though the production date of the watch corresponds with the use of radium.

Recently fully serviced and left unpolished as acquired. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation. Offered with your choice of sporty leather strap. Your purchase includes our popular WBAW? branded glazed leather pouch, ideal for travel or storage.

Vintage Tudor - Pre-Owned & Used Tudor Watches

All of our vintage Tudor and pre-owned Tudor watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind. Montres Tudor (SA) has designed, manufactured and marketed Tudor watches since 6 March 1946. Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf conceived of the Tudor Watch Company to create a product for authorized Rolex dealers to sell that offered the reliability and dependability of a Rolex, but at a lower price. The number of Rolex watches was limited by the rate that they could produce in-house Rolex movements, thus Tudor watches were originally equipped with off-the-shelf movements while using similar quality cases and bracelets.
