About This Watch:

The Tudor Submariner line was produced from 1969 through 1999 with the 79190 being the final reference in production from 1995 through 1999.  The 79190 shared many of the beloved stylings of the iconic Rolex Submariners, but with its own special Tudor touch.  

The History:  Tudor began to produce watches in 1926, that could be marketed and manufactured as a more affordable timepiece than the Rolex line, while still keeping the same standard of dependability that Rolex had become known for.   Over the years, the product line grew to include the renowned Oyster Prince, as well as their diver watches such as the Submariner series.  

The Watch:  The Tudor 79190 Submariner has a stainless steel case, with a stainless steel 3-link Oyster style bracelet.  It has a black dial and black bezel insert.  The 79190 has a unidirectional bezel with a sapphire crystal, which was exclusive to the 79190 Submariner, as opposed to the more common submariner model, the 79090.  There is a cyclops lens over the date window at the 3 o’clock position, as well as Mercedes-style hour and minute hands and a lollipop seconds hand.  The Tudor 79190 also has the “T Swiss Made T’ marking on the dial above the 6 o’clock position indicating the tritium lume on the hands and painted hour markers.  The 79190 is powered by an ETA 2824-2 movement with a 42-hour power reserve and a water resistance rating of 200 meters.

The Details:  This Tudor Submariner 79190 dates to a production year of 1995 and appears to be unpolished, with sharp case lines and chamfers present.  The case shows wear that is consistent with a timepiece of this age, and visible in the photographs. The dial has a small mark between the 8 and 9 o’clock positions.  Included with this timepiece is the original warranty paper, and the original Tudor 9315 Oyster bracelet with 380B end links.
