Item(s) for Sale:

Rolex signed Tudor Prince Oyster Date

Item(s) Description/Condition:

Rolex signed crown, case, back, and dial. Tudor Prince oyster date 25 Jewels automatic movement with hack set. Numbers (I believe re-finished at some point) are glow in the dark.

Bracelet has very little use on it. SS and 18K (probably gold filled), bought it from Diamond Perfections Jewelry store in Hyannis, MA (paid around 360$). Clasp is a little off in locking but I suspect a jeweler could bend it into place for short money.

California dial puts this somewhere from the 1970's. Back has some dings in it, but otherwise it's quite clean. Acrylic crystal is clean and I had it serviced last winter so it's running strong and keeping good time.

I'll be getting some pictures of the movement in the near future so this can go on eBay if it doesn't move here.

For those who don't know Tudor brand was made by Rolex for many years. Pretty much all the Rolex models have a Tudor version as well. Tudor brand was mostly sold outside USA.

I always liked the California dial and this was my first Rolex. It's really a bit too dressy for my lifestyle these days and it is NOT water proof.

Price:

Why doesn't this watch have the military time within the circle? form what im understanding that's common with every California dial. I have also read that no real dial left the Tudor factory with both names, Except for some rare vintage makes and that the dual name ones are actually remakes. Any insight on this?

Didn't even see this message. PM me if you're still interested and I'll pull the bracelet and take pics.

Dial has certainly been refinished at some point. I've seen a lot of variety on these dials, much of it likely not original but whoever redoes them taking a little artistic license.
