What makes this watch so unique?
This is Tudor's first reference in diver's watches (1954). Other examples are extremely scarce in the world moreover in similar state and working condition. This watch is presented in an exceptional good condition.
The case maintains its sharp lines that prove a never polished condition and comes with all its original elements (no replacement or service elements).
A very important detail for Tudor connoisseurs is on the dial: the Tudor Rose touching the 12 o'clock marker of which there are very few examples in the world and places this watch in the first series produced in 1954.
