Tudor Submariner

Tudor Submariner

Why We Love It

We love Tudor here at Analog/Shift. From dress watches to alarm watches and everything in between, Tudor always has a place in our catalogs. Even their modern offerings, with their neo-vintage looks, feel right at home on our wrists.

But for those of us who love the newer Tudors but want something a little, well, older, there’s the Tudor Submariner Reference 79090.

Dating from 1995, this Reference 79090 is a true peach. Not only is it in excellent condition aesthetically, with crisp bevels, a creamy patina, and a Tudor-signed 9315 bracelet, but this beauty comes complete with inner and outer boxes, booklets, and stamped papers from Toronto dated October 7, 1995.

Need we say more!?

The Story

Tudor first began offering the Submariner in the 1950s. In its earliest iterations, the Tudor Submariner was nearly identical to its Rolex compatriot, with black dials, Mercedes hands, and hour markers that alternated between long triangles at the poles and round plots everywhere else. However, it wasn’t long before the look of the Tudor Submariner began to shift and change.

For nearly two decades, the Tudor “Snowflake” (Reference 7016) was the model that defined the Tudor Submariner, with its distinctive triangular hour markers and hands… but the Snowflake was not the be-all, end-all of Tudor Subs.

With the 79090, Tudor returned the Submariner to its roots. The Mercedes hands returned, along with circular hour plots and elongated triangular hour markers at the Poles. As the last of the Tudor Subs, collectors are now turning to the Reference 79090 as what it is—a classic.
