Watch for Sale: Tudor Rose Logo Hand Wind ca. 1970, Rolex Crown in good condition, ca. 85% overall, Tudor Caliber 1156

Why I think this watch is interesting:
A great witness of horological history. An original Tudor with Crown button, Case and Case Back by Rolex and signed accordingly. Dial is dark brown and has a vertical texture that glooms almost golden in Day light. Very hard to show in the picture.

Please read the comments about the condition of the watch below. As always I try to describe the watches as they are, not hiding anything.

And I am as always very open and straight: this is a Handwind with Screw-Down crown. The power reserve (measured is about 48 hours), that means you will have to open and wind the watch every second day. To me that is a pleasure, I love to wind watches. I just want to make sure you understood that before ordering the watch and not be disappointed afterwards. The threads on the crown tube and crown of that Tudor are like new and Tudor guarantees that you can use that watch for a very long time and that whether the thread nor the crown will quickly wear out. And if it does one day, it is really very simple to replace that threaded stem tube.

Watch Description and Condition
: The watch is in very good condition and keeps great time. As you surely noticed, the watch has one little cosmetic error, the relatively dark lume on the hour hand and the broken lume on the minute hand. I have taken this into consideration when pricing the watch. Also the some luminous dots are missing as you can see from the pictures. But the hands are in good condition, all it takes is a replacement of the luminous paint. If I have the time, I will do that myself. I am also thinking about replacing the luminous dots. But for this work I am most likely raising the price around USD 40.
The bezel and case back has some scratches, but as you can see from the pictures, they are normal signs of wear. The deepest scratch is at the 6 o'clock position. But again, I am very fussy about scratches and just feel obliged to report honestly.
The beautiful part of this watch is its pristine movement.
Measured Power Reserve 43 hours (dial up)

The Movement is clean and in perfect working condition. Measured Power reserve is 43 hours (dial up), the only "cosmetic" error is the "chewed" setting lever screw. That is quite normal for watches of this age, since that screw needs to be loosened 2 turns to remove the stem. The case clamp on the left also shows some signs of corrosion. But if you wish, I can replace that case clamp wiht an identical new ETA case clamp. I just did not want to modify the watches before having talked to you. Besides those two little "cosmetic" errors, the movement looks as great as this picture shows it. It is really a beauty!

That is past now, the hands have been relumed ... but even with the luminous paint cracked on the minute hand and with the darker lume on the minute hand, the watch looks great on the wrist. I can not really tell why, but I really love those vintage Tudors. Once you have seen their movements in person, you might start to understand

I will throw in a Sandoz Box, so this watch has a decent home again. Of course without the Sandoz guarantee.
