What makes this particular model so special and unique? For a start everything is original, the dial, the hands, the ‘ghosted’ bezel and the bracelet on its own worth a considerable amount.

This watch really is quite special and unique the like of which are very hard to come by. This Tudor Submariner is from 1973 and is the model known as the ‘Snowflake’ due to the trademark hands and hour indices.

What makes this particular model so special and unique? For a start everything is original, the dial, the hands, the ‘ghosted’ bezel and the bracelet on its own worth a considerable amount.

How do we know of Military history? The bracelet has been inscribed with RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force), the personal military number and that persons blood group! When we look at the caseback of the watch itself its inscribed with ‘Col Howarth Chinchilla’ so we think its safe to say has some military provenance. With the dates of the bracelet matching that of the watch it would appear to all be original and correct.

The bracelet is actually a Rolex one which was common on these earlier Tudor models before they made their own they shared parts with their sister company Rolex as is demonstrated with the Rolex stamped caseback and crown.

The watch itself clearly has a ‘ghosted’ bezel where by the colour has naturally faded quite significantly over the years. The dial has a wonderful patina beautifully bubble black dial with the hands and hour makers going almost a tropical colour.

Hugely collectable from either a vintage watch collector point of view, that of a military collector or with an affiliation to the RAAF. In our view – a wonderfull opportunity to own this piece of history.
