    In exceptional unworn new old stock condition, the present Oysterdate Chronograph still retains the original burgundy Tudor sticker on the back of the case. It is furthermore complete with the original certificate and box.

    This watch is fitted with the scarcer black dial with silver subsidiaries as opposed to the more usual silver dial with black subsidiaries, it is also the first series Oysterdate Chronograph dial with trapezoidal indexes and inscription “T Swiss T” as opposed to the second version's straight block indexes and inscription “T Swiss Made T”.
