    Taste for Tudors

    I've owned this Tiger Prince Date for four years and still enjoy its style and rarity; I keep returning to the idea of a Tudor Submariner 79190 to join it (or replace, I'm undecided...).
    I have to say that the niche vibe of pre-millennial Tudors is a big part of the appeal.



    Suggestions on the best UK sources for Tudor Sub appreciated.

    That is really cool.
    I was looking at an older Hydronaut the other day. Certainly they had a blip where they did some outlandish things that were not to everyoneís taste but those watches are really particular to Tudor and were fairly unique in character. I suspect a good investment. They remind me a little of Omega in the 70ís when some of the more outlandish case designs appeared.
    Tudors latest designs are pleasing to the eye but they are safe. In the 90ís they went wild !

    Donít sell that!
    I really like the old Tudor sub too - as for sources, Iíve been trawling eBay for some time. They do come up, but not so often.

    Maybe the usual suspects (Chrono24 etc) but think itíll be a case of patience and eyes peeled

    I love old Tudors, as can be seen in the preceding photos they are very handsome (also robust and accurate). That yellow dial in the OP's post is spectacular.

    I've flipped three others but this one - the one without a date function - remains.

    Lovely Tudors there.
    Here is one of mine. Hope OP finds his Sub.

    Very partial to an old Tudor Submariner. The new ones are just so thick and chunky though.

    That yellow dial looks cool but not sure I could pull that off on the wrist!

    I'm sure you could fella (if fact it's become something of a theme...)



    My thin excuse being that they complimented my recently departed ride...



    I've decided to test the waters ref. the Yellow dial Prince Date; if I end up with a fine Tudor Sub great Ė either way life's good.

    Love my Tudor BB chrono'

    In-house Breitling B01 column-wheel, vertical clutch chronograph. It really is silky smooth, and running @ less than 1spd. Tell me a better option at this price-point?

    I canít remember the exact dimensions but they are a very similar size to a Rolex Submariner (39-41mm). Great watches, esp the case design & the crown guards etc.

    I have this one - best watch I have owned recently for sure. Waaaaay better to own than to look at photos of. Itís lovely to wear and I reckon one of the best looking watches of the last few years.

    And the steel bezel Black Bay is another sleeper - get it off the bracelet and add some colour, it becomes really really nice.

    If Tudor reproduced that Iíd be done, game over for me.
