THE FULL STORY
While this watch may be from the 1990s, the tritium lume plots and plexiglass crystal gives it that vintage look that we love. The Tudor Submariner 75090 was a mid-sized entry into the Tudor Submariner Date family, which included the classic 79090 at 40mm and the ‘Mini-Sub’ reference 73090 measuring 33mm. There was even a ‘Lady-Sub’ introduced that measured 23mm in diameter. The dial is a rich matte black with tritium indexes and Mercedes hands and is powered by the ETA 2824-2. The thing we love most about this example is its fat case with super-sharp edges and a matching bracelet to boot.
THE NITTY GRITTY
Overall, this watch is in solid condition with some signs of wear. The bracelet is an original Tudor stainless-steel bracelet with some light stretch, somewhat resembling the Rolex Jubilee. The watch has certainly been worn in the past with light scratches throughout, however the case has very sharp edges and was likely never polished. The tritium on the dial has aged uniformly and matches the handset perfectly.
