Tudor 7924 BC US Navy

7924USN-Groot

ULTRA RARE Tudor Big crown Military, used by the US Navy. Reference 7924 is virtually the same watch as the Rolex 5510/6538 BC but much more affordable and the same watch as Sean Connery wore in the early James Bond movies. This example is in 100% original condition with large 27mm original gilt dial (most have a changed smaller 26mm dial from a 7928) which is becoming tropical. It also retains the original gilt hands and rare lollipop second hand. The original bezel still has the rare red-triangle insert which is a bit worn but indicates the military use. The case in in amazing condition with fat lugs and sharp edges. The caseback has a USN engraving + serial number (276XXX) from 1958. The Tudor Cal 390 movement is also in perfect shape. Attached is a nice leather band with a super rare Tudor clip. The watch will also come with a new Corvus NATO strap as worn by james Bond (green/red/gold stripes). Sofar this is the only US Navy Tudor BC I’ve ever seen, together with it’s originality makes this one of the rarest Tudors ever made.
