About this watch

This all-original 1966 Tudor OysterDate ref. 7996/0 features waterproof oyster case, crown bearing Rolex logo, Tudor automatic wound calibre 2484 movement, original grey dial with white inlaid silver batons. We’ve enhanced the piece with a new brown lizard strap.

A little history: Tudor, a sister brand to Rolex, was launched by Hans Wilsdorf in 1949. Viewed historically as a more affordable alternative to Rolex, the marque still managed to exhibit the high quality expected of the original. Indeed, during the golden era when the Tudor Oyster-Prince was launched in 1952, the watch was seen as a direct parallel to the Rolex-branded Oyster Perpetual – even featuring that Rolex branding on the crown and case – and the two marques appeared alongside each other in advertising etc. However, compared with a Rolex Oyster Perpetual of the same vintage, this exemplary timepiece represents exceptional value.
