Lot Essay

Delivered with an example of Tudor Anthology by Alberto Isnardi.

Reference 9430/0 was launched in 1977, fitted with a blank bezel with engraved tachymetre scale. Very early examples from this series, such as the present watch, feature the applied shield-shaped logo and Tudor signature at 3 o'clock, however only the model name "Chrono Time". On later generations, the designation changes to "Automatic Chrono Time" and is placed above the 12 hours register. Another characteristics of the first series are the raised centres of the three subsidiary dials which will be modified to the flat variant in the late 1980s. The models are fitted with the Rolex Oyster bracelet ref. 78360.

A similar reference 9430/0 is described and illustrated in Alberto Isnardi's Tudor Anthology, pp. 166-167.
