First of all this watch is a dream for any collector because of it’s originality, this watch till today is exactly as it was purchased with All the original parts.

Usually watch owners over the years will send their watches for servicing & the brand will replace parts if they are not functioning well or had some wear. This watch has none of the parts replaced & all in original condition, which make it a very rare piece. On top of that this watch was produced for one year only which is 1958.

This reference’s red triangle bezel is so rare because when this ref. was sent to Tudor for servicing usually the brand will change the Bezel with a white triangle instead of Red. So having this watch with it’s original red triangle bezel plus the Pearl is still intact is unbelievable!
