THE TUDOR MILSUB
A rare and interesting Military Submariner issued to the Canadian Navy.
MARKED FOR SERVICE
The rough ‘field’ engraving, its style and placement on the caseback would indicate that these markings enabled the Officer to keep track of the watches he was issuing.
BLACK BAY ANCESTOR
These 9401/0 watches in this configuration are actually the same layout as the Tudor Heritage Black Bay watches.
SPECIAL SERIAL BATCHES
We know that Tudor reserved batches of watches for Department of Defence orders. These batches become apparent overtime as serial numbers of well-provenanced examples are collated and we form an understanding of ‘correct’ serial numbers for certain issued references.
