Tudor Submariner

Why We Love It

While the " Blue Snowflake" dial Tudor Submariners from the 1970s and early 1980s are without a doubt incredibly cool, the models that followed right on their heels are equally impressive - and in many ways even more interesting.

Dating from 1984, this Reference 76100 Submariner is an iconic model featuring the so-called 'Lollipop' hour hand. Its dial and handset have developed a killer patina throughout, and it comes fitted with a lovely 'ghosted' blue bezel insert. It also features a thick case, knife-edged bezel assembly, exceptional dial, non-magnified replacement acrylic crystal and comes complete with its inner red box, guarantee paperwork dated August 1984 from Chronotime in Geneva, and French import papers.

This is a very special watch in every regard - no matter what name it has printed on the dial - don't miss it!

The Tudor Story 

Although it started as Rolex’s gateway brand, the quality of Tudor’s products are by no means inferior to Rolex’s.

Tudors were in many ways Rolexes in all but name, with the same waterproof Oyster cases and similar styling. However, in order to keep costs down, Tudor used off the shelf Swiss movements rather than their own in-house calibres. What resulted were watches that were more affordable than Rolexes to the consumer, but still uniformly tough and reliable.

Hans Wilsdorf created Tudor for the everyman, for miners, construction workers and every sort of tradesman. Rolex was meant for the explorer and the businessman, where Tudor was to be a different creature entirely. For your everyday person Rolex was, and often still is out of reach.

But in creating Tudor, Wilsdorf wanted to offer “a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standards of dependability for which Rolex is famous."

Today Tudor has certainly defeated any impression of being the redheaded stepchild of the Rolex family, and their current timepiece collection – as well as their vintage counterparts – are getting the recognition and respect they most rightfully deserve.
