Tudor Submariner 7928 Gilt Chapter Ring Dial 1964 Vintage
Since the introduction of the very first Submariner, variations in the execution of each reference have often illustrated the watches’ continuous evolution. Its iconic status and importance to the Rolex brand has led to constant reinvention and modernisation, marking a number of industry innovations along the way. What’s more, this impact is equally evident in that of the Tudor Submariner. The Tudor Submariner 7928, was the first to feature crown guards, often referred to by collectors in the reference 7928 as “Square Crown Guards”. What makes this 7928 particularly special is the early execution, gilt chapter-ring dial with tritium markers and silver script.
The dial of this Tudor Submariner 7928 is in exceptionally good condition, with tritium index markers and classic 'TUDOR’ and ‘OYSTER PRINCE – 200m-660ft – SUBMARINER – ROTOR- SELF-WINDING’ text referenced in silver script, further displaying the Tudor Rose. The Tritium index plots and Mercedes hands have aged to a beautiful, yellow patina. Sized at 39mm, the case appears unpolished, with sharp bevels displayed on its lugs and defined case-back engraving. The brushed finish on the lugs is clearly visible, while the polished sides are in exceptional condition. This particular case dates to circa 1964.
Rarer than most Rolex examples of the same era, it is worth noting that an equivalent Rolex Submariner, with similar characteristics (gilt chapter-ring dial, beautifully patinated lumes, unpolished case) would be priced far in excess of a Tudor Submariner 7928. The intriguing difference being, reference 7928’s are a much rarer breed.
