Rolex Tudor 7923 Gilt Chapter Ring Dial Pencil Hands Red Depth

For sale is an unpolished, lollipop second hand, gilt chapter ring dial Tudor 7923. This is the earliest production known and one of the rarest dive watches in the world.


In 1955, another icon was born; Tudor's diver's watch, the reference 7923. The first manually wound diver's watch ever made, this technical advance allowed the watch to lay flatter on the wrist and therefore allowing for wear while underwater. The technical assets of the model enjoyed immediate success, making Tudor the brand choice of various Armed Forces and explorers, including the US Armed Forces and the French Marine National, who had used Tudor wristwatches as standard issue timekeepers for its most elite servicemen for more than 25 years. The screw-down case back and crown, already associated with the Oyster case, as well as the domed crystal allowed a depth of 100 meters, and the dial is proudly marked in red; 100 / 330. The black dial was no longer signed; "Rotor,  Self-Winding," as it did not house an automatic movement. Instead, it was replaced with "Submariner" and "Shock-Resisting", clearly seen and notably in well-preserved condition to the present watch.


The Present example has pencil hands with the so-called "lollipop" seconds hand with luminous dot at its end. Its bezel has been lost at some point during its life, however, its extremely attractive dial and case create a collectors dream watch that equals vintage Tudor perfection.
