Tudor Marine Nationale MN78 Submariner 9401 with Papers

The Beauty of a Tudor MilSub…

We’ve done it again! We are offering a fresh to market Tudor Submariner that was issued to the Marine Nationale that we have acquired from the original owner. You can read the story here on our magazine. This a really exceptional example of the iconic blue snowflake Tudor Subs that were widely issued to French navy personnel in the 1970s. The watch retains it original tritium dial, tritium hands( as most of the mill- issued Tudors hands have been stabilized ! ) and bezel and has the all-important MN78 caseback engraving.

We have also acquired a copy of the watchmaker ledgers that list this watch!The 40mm steel case has been matted all over, as was common with these watches and remains exactly as we found it, other than a movement service from our watchmaker. To complete this awesome package there is a letter of provenance from the original owner and we have included a set of three Bulang and Sons nato straps. Don’t miss this incredibly opportunity to own such a fantastic example of a Tudor MilSub. It does not get better than this.
