This vintage watch is TUDOR SUBMARINER. Actually, this one was also used by those of France and the US Navy at that time. It is a watch well matched to marine fashion.
Originally, the dial of this model has black and blue, but the blue dial is very rare. There are models with and without dates in this model. Those without dates are very rare because they had very small volume.
By the way, I prefer a model without date.
It looks more simple and elegant.
Please have a look at the photos. Hand design is very characteristic. The hand is in the shape of a square, right?
This is a design not present in the current product.
Can you see that there is an engraving of ROLEX on the crown and the case back?
It is mysterious that there is an engraving of Rolex in the Tudor. Because at that time, Rolex and Tudor were existed as sister brand. So, despite Tudor, there was a model engraved with ROLEX.
By the way, the charming point of a vintage watch is, it has a "Design that does not exist anymore". There are a lot of beautiful watches in the world which are still on sale. However, things like, the materials change with the passage of time, and the history of the watch can be felt, are the attraction of the vintage watches.
The watch definitely can be regard as a "One and only" is more than wonderful.
Actually, I am having the same model with this.
Not only for work but casual dates on the weekend, it is an item that can be easily matched.
The watch was inspired for sports, but it is easy to match both suit and casual clothing.
The very dark blue make the watch more impressive.
Incidentally, there is a current version of this watch. See the picture below.
It is a brand new watch of the Tudor Submariner.
While thinking about the historical background of the time, it is interesting to compare vintage and a brand new one.
