Tudor introduced the reference 7928 in 1959 and this was the first Tudor Submariner with crown guards. The reference 7928 was in production until 1967 and has been used to celebrate the “Auto-Prince” caliber 390, a FEF (Fabrique d’Ebauches de Fleurier) based 17 jewel movement. It was available with different types of crown guards. The dials always featured the Tudor rose symbol followed by “Oyster Prince” to the upper half, the lower half generally presented the depth rating 200m=660ft, Submariner, Rotor, Self-Winding on four lines. The present watch reflects these specifications of the dial. Moreover the tonneau-shaped case is still well preserved while the bezel on this example is untouched and complements the quality of the watch.
