This Rolex Tudor Chronograph watch is called the ” Pre-Tiger” model, Ref. 79280, which has been discontinued for a long while now.
This Tudor chronograph became a collectors item when the Tiger Woods model came out and is sought after by collectors ever since.
This particular watch features a white dial with black sub-register dials and has a very similar appearance to the famed Rolex Daytona models.
The solid 40mm stainless steel case features a stainless steel tachymetre bezel, screw-down chronograph pushers and a screw down Oyster crown, which was designed to seal the case against water penetration for up to 100 m/330 ft (please note that we do not guarantee water resistance on any watches we sell).
The watch is fitted with a Rolex modified automatic Valjoux 7750 movement, which has been the industry standard in terms of reliability and accuracy for years.
This Tudor pre-Tiger chronograph is in excellent condition and everything works flawlessly as you would expect. This watch will be delivered with the original double box set but no warranty card. The original Tudor Oyster steel bracelet is still fitted and is also a sought after item as they are no longer produced.
