Gorgeous 1976 Blue Tudor Prince Oysterdate Submariner 9411/0 with Snowflake Hands, beautifully faded original ghost bezel fully Rolex stamped case and original Rolex 9315/380 bracelet all in superb aged condition. This timepiece is direct from its original owner who purchased it new in 1976 to dive with. He used it for many years, hence the wear, but it has been in a drawer for many years since. Remarkably the previous owner said to me he remembered the bezel looking almost the same every since he bought it, meaning it either faded very quickly or was already faded when he bought it. The watch looks to have been polished at some point in its life, but still bears nice bevels on the lugs and is in worn condition with nice wear consistent with age showing throughout. We have just completed a full service on this timepiece, it is running beautifully and ready to wear with a full one year warranty. The only vintage stainless steel Submariner in blue out there!! So COOL!!!
Style: Tool, Sport, Military
Case: Classic Rolex designed and manufactured solid stainless steel case measuring 40mm in diameter excluding the crown and crown guards in excellent vintage condition with light wear throughout. Stamped between the lugs at 12:00 9411/0 and at 6:00 with a serial number in the 844XXX range dating it to 1976. The case back is also stamped Original Oyster Case By Rolex Geneva, then inside Montre Tudor SA, Geneva Switzerland, Patented, Stainless Steel with no date stamp (correct for this series of this date). The bezel is original, beautifully and naturally faded and rotates with nice friction. The bracelet is full length and the original 9315 with 380 endlinks, triple lock clasp and "Pateted" divers extension. Some slight stretch is noticeable, but consistent with age and still very wearable with tons of life left in it. Pressure tested and in fully waterproof condition.
Dial: Original factory printed dial with a stunning, even light blue back gound and beautiful cream colour luminous markers, fully signed Tudor Prince Oysterdate, 200m=600ft, Submariner, T Swiss T with date aperture at 3:00. Some of the luminous markers have peeled up slightly with some cracking around them, typical of this series of dial, but are now stable and look great. There are a couple of other small marks but overall superb condition as you can see in our pics. Original snowflake hands with perfectly matching original luminous in excellent light aged condition.
Movement: High quality original ETA calibre 2784 automatic movement with KIF shock protection and correct and original Tudor Oyster-Prince signed rotor.
