Tudor “Tiger” Oyster Prince Date ref. 79280, an automatic chronograph with date, circa 1999. Featuring 40mm diameter case with steel tachometer bezel, sapphire crystal, and an absolutley stunning original silver satin dial with striking grey contrasting white registers and famed golfer Tiger Wood designation “TIGER” printed in bold red lettering. The dial is interesting further by its use of tritium in the hour markers and hands, when by this time almost everyone had switched to using Luminova.
The watch is powered by calibre 7750 self winding movement with date. With heavy Oyster bracelet with Tudor deployment clasp. This model bears case back engraving for Rolex Crown Club, presumably a presentation piece of provenance unknown to us. Great looking and just serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Also accompanying your purchase is one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather travel pouches, a $55 value!
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.
