Description
Everybody knows that Rolex made Tudor watches using Rolex cases, bracelets and other parts. Tudor chronographs have never even approached the Rolex Daytona chronograph in price, but you know what? Apart from the movements, there is hardly any difference in the watches except, well, the Tudor has a date whereas the Daytona is sorely missing a date display. Plus, the Tudor Tiger chronographs came with some very cool dials, like this yellow one for instance!

The case diameter is a robust 40mm (42 including the crown guards) by a beefy 13.9mm thick. The crystal is sapphire. Bezel is black with the familiar Units per Hour scale. Screw-down crown and chronograph pushers. Hooded lugs. Case back like all of these says TUDOR PRINCE GENEVA and the original Tudor model # sticker is still adhered.

Original and great looking yellow dial, which collectors call the "banana" dial, with magnified date and with three subdials (running seconds, chronograph 30 minutes and 12 hours totalizers), black Arabic numerals, signed TIGER TUDOR PRINCE DATE AUTOMATIC CHRONO TIME. There is a lot of quality and attention to detail on this dial, as evidenced by the "shadow" around each black numeral, the fact that the subdials are traced with white gold, the precision of the printing, etc... Original baton hands, red chronograph hands, minutes and 5ths of a second chapter around the periphery.

Automatic winding Tudor caliber which is a special refined version of the venerable and indestructible Valjoux 7750 with 25 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour.

New yellow Tudor sports strap with steel Tudor deployment buckle.

Watch is like new.
