Manufactured around 1968, this watch was among the first model 7016's released. This early model features the same dial layout as it's predecessor, the 7928. The dial has the Tudor rose at the 12 o'clock, "4 line" writing on the bottom half of dial, and traditional hour markers. The subsequent dial layout introduced the "Snowflake" design with square markers and hands. The "transitional" dial seen here does show some age and wear. This is very common among these early dials, as the lacquer used on them tends to deteriorate over time. The 25 jewel calibre 2483 movement seen in the 7016, is an upgrade from the 17 jewel calibre 390 seen in the previous Tudor Submariner reference. Vintage Tudors are a new favorite in the watch collector's world. This unpolished early model 7016 is a rare and beautiful find!
