What is for sale here and condition

Another rare find. That is a rare version with the German Day wheel , plus I have installed by my watchmaker a Rolex engine turned bezel. Watch was serviced and regulated while in his hands. Never been polished with ultra sharp lugs. I can only see a minor mark on the acrylic but you can always polish it. This one is in excellent condition. All original and in superb condition. Rolex signed crown and case back. I do not see flaws in the crystal other than the super faint one stated above, and the the bezel is perhaps the best I have seen in years, and the dial is flawless, even still glows ! Incredible that after these years the lume is that good in both hands and dial, it shows this one has been babied.

Tudor's ETA comes as a Top grade with a modified balance. KIF shock absorbers and a Triovis regulator instead of the regular ETA. Top grade means the balance has a higher grade hairspring, higher grade pallet fork and is regulated to within COSC specs without being COSC certified. Also it is absolutely gorgeous to look at since the movement is ully perlage decorated. Rolex has been using the KIF system for quite some time. Also other brands such as Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, JLC etc have used it. The main difference is that the Incabloc has two contact points on the jewel bearing, whereas KIF has three. What this means is a better equipped to survive harder impacts. The three contact points are also evenly spread so it technically self aligns itself !!! Pretty dang cool.! And by the way, so you don't feel left out because she does not have a "Rolex" movement, the great caliber 3135 has two KIF applications. !

Watch is keeping perfect time. Crown screws in and out perfectly and the crown is a beauty ! The pictures are part of the description. I am not a watchmaker and I do not have the tools to check for water resistance, so WR is not guaranteed. TZ 95% conservative in my humble opinion for a vintage piece this old. Watch comes with black strap and jewelry aftermarket box.

What you see in the pictures is what you get, unless stated above otherwise. Always ask, please ask any questions before committing to buy.
