-Description
This is Prince Oyster Date chronograph "Chronotime" Ref.79260.

The 
79200 series is the fourth generation of Tudor's chronographs, introduced in 1995.

The cases up to 79100 of the previous generation were called Big Block, but in this series, they have been changed to curved ones.

It is a big feature that it has a shape closer to Daytona.


In addition, a sapphire glass crystal has been adopted to further improve practicality.

This Ref.79260 is a model with a tachymeter bezel that has been anodized.

Even with the same 79260, the specifications will change slightly as the model year changes.

The adoption of Rolex parts has disappeared, and the dial is also available in PRINCE DATE and TIGER notations.

This watch comes with an OYSTERDATE notation in the early stages of production, a black dial that is not an exaggeration to say that it is the coolest in Chronotime, and a box and warranty paper.

The condition is that the case is slightly rubbed and scratched, and you can't feel the polishing thinness at all.

You can see in the picture that the corners of the rug are standing firmly.


The dial is a matte black dial, and the counter is silver, a combination called "reverse panda".

The design is reminiscent of Daytona's Ref.16520 and manual wind Daytona.

Tritium luminous is applied to both the hands and dial, and they are in good condition with no cracks.

The bracelet is Oyster bracelet 78400, and the single lock clasp has a shield mark.

This watch will be serviced by our watchmaker after your order.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
