1966 Glossy Gilt Tudor Submariner 7928 – Box + Papers
Available for sale is a 1966 Tudor Rose Submariner with an incredible Glossy Gilt Dial. This dial is spectacular and completely original. This Tudor comes with box and papers which is rare to see on vintage sport-size Tudors as many were simply worn out of the store and papers/boxes were never kept. The dial, hands, bezel, case are completely original and untouched. In past experience, the glossy gilt Tudor dials without chapter ring are far scarcer than the ones with chapter ring. To my knowledge the none chapter ring glossy gilt dials were only made for a year or so until Tudor switched over to Matte dials. To own an example of this attractive box and papers is impressive. This watch is extremely clean overall with honest signs of wear. The original papers are a booklet with several pages, we could not photograph all of them as we are limited in the number of photos we can upload
