Tudor Submariner Ref. 79190 - Blue Mercedes
Rolex and their little brother Tudor have created some of the most attractive and best tool watches ever seen. Possibly the most iconic watch ever produced, the Submariner has long standing utilitarian roots that span decades, have made an appearance everywhere from the British Military to the James Bond big screen. However, if you look deeper into the Submariner line, you may find a less known but just as incredible model manufactured by Tudor. These pieces are not only more unique and rare than the traditional Submariner, but offer much greater value.
The Tudor brand was started in 1926, when the founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, wanted to create a brand with the same incredible quality, but a more affordable price point. Although the brand’s models acted independently, they both shared the most iconic of watches, the Submariner.
This reference, the 79190 represents the last real era of ‘Vintage’ Tudor Submariner. This piece features a razor sharp case with nice bevels, mint blue dial with amazing and coveted patinated lume, vibrant bezel and a wonderfully tight original Tudor flip lock bracelet. Because of its acrylic crystal and hefty profile these Tudor Sub’s are easy to wear, while exemplifying all the traits that make the Submariner one of the all time great timepieces. This is a truly special piece and I couldn’t be happier to offer it in the Watch Shop!
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
