This Tudor Prince Oysterdate has the most wonderful silver grey dial, and a gold capped case. Model reference 7964.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number between the bottom lugs we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1964.
Obviously if this is a small rose, there are also Tudor Prince Oysterdate watches have larger rose logos. Which you like best is purely personal preference. The case is gold capped, not solid gold, but much thicker than gold plated. You can see the stainless steel case from the back, with the gold wrapped around the front. There are marks to the case, not bad but there and visible in the photos and video. The fluted bezel may be solid gold – there are no wear marks, but individual parts like this are rarely hallmarked and this isn’t. The dial is quite remarkable, much darker than a standard silver dial and all the more attractive for it. The Tudor signed movement is working well. The case back screws down well, but it is from a slightly different model (7966). This may have been mixed up at service in the past. There are tool marks on the case back, as well as the ‘Case by Rolex’ engraving (in case you are not aware, Tudor is part of Rolex.) This is also why the crown has the Rolex crown logo, and while it does screw down it is only by one thread. The hands have lost their lume material over the years – this is relatively easy to have renewed, but we haven’t as not everyone wants new lume in an old watch. The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred – the drilled lugs make this easy.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon. By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
