Here we have a Vintage Tudor Submariner For Sale – a 7016 Military Gilt Dial from 1968.
Between 1968 and 1975 the Tudor Watch Company contractually issued watches to both the Marine Nationale (French Navy) and US military divisions, including the reference Tudor Submariner 7016 we have here.
This Tudor sub is one of the very earliest issued with a 623k serial number that dates it to the beginning of 1968 and has the rare gilt minute marker dial with silver small rose print.
The patina on this watch is something else. The dial has an almost reflective texture to it and the hour plots have gone a dark yellow/brown shade that really set of the orange/gold gilt minute markers.
The matching hands have the rare ‘big bubble’ second hand also and the whole thing is finished off with a jaw dropping mark free faded light grey bezel with matching orange pip!
This is one of the nicest vintage Tudor Submariner watch for sale I have had. Photographs do not do this piece justice!
