Tudor Submariner - A Historical OverviewIf you know thing or two about replica watches you might have discovered Tudor chances are. You can also know about the reality that Tudor and Rolex must do something collectively. Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf founded Tudor as daughter company in the big crown. One of the daughter companies I ought to say, there have been more brands inside the Rolex stable.Tudor was intended to be able to provide a cheaper watch, though precisely the same excellent since it's government. In many cases, only the wording on the dial and also the movements that Tudor used were dissimilar to those from Rolex. Some collections were really similar, such as the Submariner. With this particular article in regards to the Tudor Submariner I'd like to present you with an overview of the various styles of that collection throughout the years.People usually examine Tudor Submariners since the underdogs, the indegent man's Rolex Submariner watch. However, that is cannot be entirely true. Tudor was, yet still is, an exceptionally interesting brand to collectors of both new and vintage replica watches. They surprise us with great replica watches every single year even as have experienced slideshow couple of months ago during BaselWorld too. Making use of their Heritage collection Tudor makes vintage themed replica watches that belong to the coolest available. So I still find it only fair people to take a look on the long and interesting reputation of Tudor Submariners and shed some light for the kinds of and references, when we did a little while ago with all the Rolex Submariners.A bit of Tudor historyHans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, and later on Tudor, acquired the emblem in 1926. Many years passed along with the early a great deal of the 1930's the first Tudor replica watches were exposed to the industry. After the 1930's the entire world War II started as well as the industry was occupied with everything else but expanding. One full year as soon as the war, Mr Wilsdorf founded the Tudor company as we know it today, on the 6th of March 1946. He envisioned Tudor as a second brand beside Rolex and used the already present technical advantages on his new second type of replica watches.Birth of the Tudor SubmarinerThe first Submariner from Rolex and its little Tudor brother were both developed as well. Naturally, Rolex were forced to emerge first on this new diver's watch. Please keep in mind that after all this, Rolex were required to go first due to the fact that these were the first brand and Tudor was the newcomer within Wilsdorf's businesses. The primary Rolex Submariners (the corporation launched 3 kinds of at the same time: the ref. 6200, 6204 and 6205) were introduced in 1953 and a few months later, in 1954, hublot king power the Tudor Submariner followed. This model received the reference number 7922 also it was almost like the Rolex Submariner. The watch set the foremost design elements for future Tudor Submariner models, it experienced a self-winding movement of course (Fleurier caliber 390) and water-resistant to 100 meters.The watch that never existedThis reference was only over quickly simply because it was quickly followed-up from the Tudor Submariner ref. 7923. This model can be so rare that for many years freeze watches , people did not even trust it ever existed. They referred to as the reference anything from your prototype and frankenwatch. Whilst the 7922 had an automated movement this new reference had a manual-wind movement (caliber 1156-1188). It is the only manual movement employed in the Tudor Submariner collection. The style was very similar to the predecessor although not 100% identical. The dial for instance, is less complicated, there's no depth-marking upon it; it really bears resemblance towards the Rolex 6205. Due to the manual-wind movement, true from the watch was lighter and thinner, nothing remotely much like today's Tudor dive replica watches. More details on those later.Tudor Submariner 7924Like the 7922 and also the 7923, the 7924 Tudor Submariner reference experienced a very short production run. Because of this and we don't have certain info on a few of the information this watch. The Tudor Submariner 7924 was possibly created in or around 1958 plus it had a thicker crystal in comparison to its predecessors. It was water-proof to 200 meters.The classic Tudor Submariner In 1960, Tudor brought the 4th mention of market using the Tudor Submariner 7928. It is - in my view Body of the very most classic looking Tudor Submariner replica watches into their time line (very like the Rolex Submariner 5512 and 5513 references). Whereas the prior two references were smaller in proportion (roughly 37mm) this watch was bigger (39mm) plus much more rugged. The bezel changed towards the riveted version the location where the first Fifteen minutes are also marked. The watch was popular because of the significantly discounted than a Rolex Submariner. Unlike the Rolex Submariner, this movement had not been chronometer certified. That it was an automated movement though; the Fleurier 390. It a pretty long production run, from 1960 close to 1968.The other generationThe next two Tudor Submariner references were milestones inside good reputation for the product range often. The corporation stopped utilizing the caliber 390 offered by Fleurier and altered to ETA's 2483 movement for that new references 7016 (and later on 7021) around 1968-1969. Rumor has it that this new sort of hands were also introduced with this particular model - they are called snowflake by collectors - were requested because of the French Navy (Marine Nationale France). The organization had to develop a variation that could be better to see under water. Tudor changed the design and it determined the design of their Submariner models for that next few years. But not only the hands were changed, the indexes became square (previous ones were round), and the dial was now made available in blue. The case and bezel stayed much like it had been about the Tudor Submariner 7928. Shortly after the creation of the reference 7016, Tudor introduced the Tudor Submariner reference 7021, which has been identical to the previous model but experienced a date feature at 3 o'clock. Sign of these models is many designs include damaged dials. On many occasions the lacquered dial started to flake or appear before long a result of the combined lousy quality of manufacture and lack of good care watches .Tudor 7016/0 photo taken by Ming TheinTudor Submariner 9401In 1975, the Tudor Submariner 9401 was introduced (and 9411 again for the date version). This version has also been accessible in both black and blue.  As a matter of fact, this blue version was usually the one the afore mentioned French Navy bought and supplied for their divers. Production under various variations of the references ran from 1975 until around 1983. The movement Tudor used used to be furnished by ETA, using own caliber numbers (caliber 2776 and caliber 2784 to the date version). The movements were slightly modified by Tudor.Transitional Tudor SubmarinerThe 76100 would have been a reference Tudor collectors often call a transitional model. It appears that the watch was produced roughly while doing so because the 94110 so technically it can be comparable to that watch. However upon closer inspection we realize that this has different hands as opposed to 94110. Production of the 76100 may be put around 1984, that was an excellent year to get born, it could be a cool, rare and pretty interesting watch to celebrate one's year of birth. Quite the conversation starter for me. Image here's a beautiful 76100 as seen on Thirtyfivemill.Last GenerationThe Tudor Submariner 79000 combination of reference (79090 MOTORSPORT , 79190) was the 3rd and last generation of Tudor's classic Submariner collection. They were designed by the brand inside 1980's as well as in - different variation - ran until 1999. The replica watches stood a different dial version compared to previous ones; the indexes at 9 and 6o'clock were changed from square to triangle, the color variation was previously again extended together with the burgundy color, along with the date became permanent. The movement was ETA's solid 2824-2. As you move the previous models had snowflake hands just for this reference the hands seem to be so-called Mercedes hands, the ones you see on Rolex likewise certainly.The Tudor Submariner AftermathAfter the 79000 series Tudor wouldn't continue making the Submariner collection. Naturally, there are a great many other references connected to Tudor Submariner such as the mini Sub produced for your Asian market, or even the lady Sub for your female watch lover. In terms of the original simple Tudor Submariner watch, the above mentined references are definitely the backbone with the collection. Obviously, the 79000 series will not be considered vintage yet and they are generally still accessible for cheap cash various on-line watch market paces like Chrono24. As coded in the introduction, I like the Heritage models by Tudor, specially the Tudor Blackbay as well as the Pelagos collections. They are a fantastic combination of past and present, tradition and innovation.  In addition with their simple design, they may be surely becoming future classics.
