Description

Without a doubt, the rarest version of the Tudor Submariner, the Israeli issued S13 version with pointed crown guards and mixed gilt/silver dial print.
The perfect original dial is completely untouched, and the original gilt/silver print is unmarked and as it features both the curved “Self-Winding” text at the bottom of the dial and the early Tudor rose logo at the top, it is one of the most attractive dials ever seen on a Tudor Submariner.

The movement is the Tudor Cal. T 390, developed by Rolex around 1950 especially for the Tudor brand. It was a rugged and rather high automatic movement with a central rotor winding in both directions. Its components were markedly similar to those of the contemporary Rolex Caliber 1030, including the shape of the rotor, the Maltese spring to stop the rotor, and the sprung discs of the twin click. The movement has 17 jewels, flat Nivarox hairspring and Kif-Trior shock resistance.

The watch is in gorgeous original condition, with much of the original case beveling still present & the original bezel with the wide striations is still fitted..
The case is 95% whilst the movement is 95+% and the dial is also 95+%.

The watch measures 39.5mm diameter, 47.5mm lug to lug, 14 mm high and takes a 20mm strap and is fitted with a period correct folded oyster bracelet, which is loose & has one replaced link. This is NOT the original bracelet, as these were not worn on the wrist, but rather on dive boards, along with a compass & depth gauge.
