Tudor Prince Oysterdate

Recommended Posts

Hi watch forum,

Hope someone can offer me some advice. I brought this Tudor Prince Oysterdate from an antique dealer fair. He said it was from his personal collection & had it 10 year's, he said it was from the late 60's or early 70's & did need a service as had not been worn for some time. Anyone know the reference of this model?

Fully wound only takes 12-15 turns as I can feel the clutch slipping & only lasts 7 hours. Is this cause for concern? I've looked for this dial configuration & can only find one which has lume pips/hands, mine doesn't!!

Also I don't think the bracelet is true to this particular watch & seems to be from a newer Tudor model?

I'm worried if the dial has been refinished & even more worried that the service will cost the earth? Being sent next few days for an estimate for a service.

Can anyone verify from the pictures in the link below that this looks genuine without looking through a loop of course?

Thanks, 

Giuseppe

Looks ok to me , it is an automatic so doesn't really need hand winding in as much as , the mainspring is designed to slip in the barrel to prevent it from winding and winding but the fact yours is only running 7 hours suggests that the mainspring is slipping to easily , this should be rectified with a service hopefully , so it would certainly be worthwhile

Hope that helps a little

@ironbru1uk looks OK to me from the photographs, give it a service and you have a very nice watch

If you are stuck as to who to send it to I can recommend @Simon2 who can be contacted on www.essexclockandwatchclinic.com
