The Tudor Submariner "Snowflake" is an icon among the sports wristwatches. It was launched in 1969 as reference 7016 without date and as reference 7021-0 calibre 2484 with red date display. These models were produced until the mid 1970s and eventually replaced with reference 9401/0 circa 1973; the updated versions with the so-called "snowflake" markers and hands came with blue or black dials without date, or as reference 9411/0 with date.
The model reference 9411 was available with a black dial and matching black bezel or with navy blue dial and blue bezel such as this watch. The timepiece possesses a marvellous original dial with charmingly aged, off-white, square, triangular and oblong luminous indexes. The "LONG 5"-bezel is bidirectional with a magnificently faded inset; this is a watch that is beloved by collectors because of its inimitable, vintage Rolex look.
