Watch for Sale: Tudor Rose Logo Hand Wind, late 60ies or early 70ies, Rolex Crown, in excellent condition, overall 97%
Why I think this
watch is interesting:
As usual, I am not hiding anything, I am not sure whether this watch had a dial refurbishing, but whoever put his hands on this watch, was a true master. The dial looks just too flawless for the age, someone must have "refreshed" the dial. But what puzzled me, is that everything seems to be so original, the hands, the luminous dots, the hands, just the color of the dial must have been redone by a really skillful artist!
The watch is really like new. As usual I inspected the watch thoroughly with my number 1 loupe (10x magnification). The only thing worth to comment I found were some really really tiny hairlines at 9 o'clock, the previous owner or most likely the shop owner where I found the watch, must have stored the watch in crown-up position. But I guarantee, you will not be able to see this hairlines with the naked eye!
The whole case and the back sparkle like a mirror, whoever refurbished it, was a master! I have a hard time giving this one away. Please write me, if you are interested. I would really love if this watch would find a permanent home and not go to a reseller, thank you!

The movement is over 95 condition, I give it 97%, the only reason is that age discoloration under the TUDOR inscription, but this discoloration is not permanent and will completely disappear if the watch is undergoing service at a serious watchmaker's workshop.
The slight coloring near the 21 RUBIES below the TUDOR inscription is age caused discoloration and will definitely and completely disappear in a normal ultra-sonic cleansing machine (please use the back button of your browser to come back here) as any serious watchmaker is using when servicing a movement
This is a picture of a "butchered" movement - not the movement in my TUDOR! Just as an example what could expect you in an otherwise nice looking watch. Somebody had simply glued the shock protection together with some two component adhesive, that watch is not serviceable anymore, no way you could disassemble that shock protection and oil the balance staff... I would never sell a watch in a condition like this, but I like to show this example to make you aware of the risks buying vintage from not trustworthy sources.
