Tudor Submariner Blue Dial

Tudor Submariner Blue Dial

The most frustrating part about what we do at analog/shift is having to say NO to our clients, as in “no, we don’t have a blue Snowflake right now”, or “sorry, no blue Lollipops at the moment”. Some watches are extremely sought after, and it’s just not possible to have a good one available all the time, so when we get in a beautiful example, it goes fast.

It’s no wonder Tudors have become so highly sought after lately. They have been popular for years, but they used to be seen only as a cheap, fun addition to a Rolex collection- a weekend watch of sorts to wear when the serious pieces were in the vault. In the past few years, collector sentiment has changed in a big way, and the iconic style of their classic timepieces (along with the re-emergence of the brand in the U.S. with their impressive collection of Heritage models) has bumped-up Tudor collecting to a higher tier. 

But with increased popularity comes a rash of refurbished, modified, "Frankensteined" and outright fake examples offered by unscrupulous sellers looking to ride the wave and make a quick buck, making it difficult for enthusiasts to find the genuine article. We've been wading through the crap to find honest, genuine pieces and have recently turned up this gorgeous late-model Reference 79090 Blue Submariner, an absolute beauty of a diver if there ever was one!

Featuring all the hallmark elements of the icon from whence it spawned, this 79090 does its ancestors proud with a crisp full-size 39mm Oyster case, incredibly sharp lugs, original matte blue dial with lightly patinated luminescent elements, and its original blue bezel insert. Paired up with our analog/shift Speyside hand-made leather strap or one of the included nylon straps, this is one honest sub you won't be afraid to wear and use every single day: It's just like every other Submariner...

...Except much more interesting.


Steel Oyster Case is approximately 39mm in diameter (excluding the crown). Tudor Reference 79090. Circa 1995.

Overall condition: Case is in fantastic condition with sharp, thick lugs and no signs of over-polishing. Original dial is virtually flawless and has a light even patina across the luminescent hour plots and original hands. Original signed case back, blue bezel insert and Rolex Trip-Lock Crown.

Includes one 20mm analog/shift Handmade Speyside Strap and two nylon straps by Crown & Buckle.
