We are delighted to offer you, on behalf of Mr Tudor and B&S Executive Editor Ross Povey, this amazing Tudor MilSub issued by the Canadian Navy. Over the last few years we have seen a huge surge in the popularity of Tudor watches generally and in particular the military issued Submariners. What is so exciting about Tudors is the research and discovery of new examples of issued pieces. Whilst there is now good documented research on the French and South African Tudor military watches, the research on the Canadian pieces is still ongoing…but that’s half the fun!
This example is a reference 79090, which were the last batch of Tudor Subs ordered by the Canadian Navy stores from Rolex Toronto. This particular example is in lovely original condition, the bezel having changed to a cobalt (blue/black) shade. The hands and hour plots match nicely and have a lovely creamy patina, commensurate with the age of the watch. The caseback features the officer’s name ‘Petty Officer (PO) Cumberland. As is often seen on watches that have been sold by retired service men, the engraving has been partially removed, but is still very much evident. The icing on the cake, is the original black NATO strap, which has all the wabi you would expect from a military watch.
The Tudor reference 79090 was the last of the plexi glass Submariners from Tudor. Featuring the Rolex Triplock crown and so-called ‘Rolex’ caseback, the mercedes hands and bi-directional bezel give this watch an amazing vintage vibe. The 40mm case size is the classic full-size vintage Tudor Submariner size and is the cousin of the Rolex 1680 (in fact, the cases are identical).
Classic vintage styling with the heritage of being a MilSub make this watch a sure fire winner and the opportunity to own a piece of history.
We are passionate about vintage watches. When you buy a vintage timepiece you buy into a piece of history as well. Most watches we sell have decades of stories to tell. By collecting and wearing such a watch you simply add your story and then pass it on again. There is no object we can feel such a deep connection with. We are really excited to connect you with your next watch.
At Bulang and Sons we have sold hundreds of watches over the years. We are a small team of experienced collectors and connoisseurs, part of an extensive global network of buyers and sellers. We are really proud of the great reputation we have for dealing only with high quality, high standard watches. We have one simply rule: we only buy and sell watches we want to own ourselves. And yes, we are still collectors too.
We know how intense the search for a specific vintage watch can be. Once you find it at Bulang and Sons, we want to make things easy, safe and fast for you. Therefore we offer the most comprehensive return policy and warranty; you will not find a safer place on the internet to buy a vintage watch.
We only offer individual timepieces and have a limited collection of the very finest vintage watches out there. The kind of quality we look for is rare to find, so we are very proud of every single watch in our shop.
It must be pretty clear by now, that we are not your average watch dealer. That is why we don’t sell our watches with a simple ‘Add to cart’ button and often communicate the price on request. We want to get in touch with you personally, to give you the best experience possible and to make sure you find the vintage watch that is right for you. Whether you’re building a collection or out to find that one unique timepiece, we’re here to help. If there is anything you would like to ask, please do. Connecting with other watch lovers is the greatest thing about working at Bulang and Sons.
