TUDOR (Tudor / Tudor) was born in 1926 as a Rolex diffusion brand.

Tudor was taken from one of the British royal families who produced Elizabeth I, the "Tudor family", and had the Rolex headquarters. It is said that this name was given for the purpose of expanding the market in the United Kingdom.

Parts other than the movement are the same as Rolex, and there is no doubt that the quality is very high even if it is a diffusion brand.

Currently, we are developing as an independent Tudor brand, not as a diffusion brand.

This is the Submariner Ref.75090 released in 1989.

At that time, there were three models of the Submariner, the 39mm size 79090, the boys size 36mm 75090, and the 33mm 73090 called the mini sub.

There are two types, black and blue, respectively, and the blue model is nicknamed "blue sub".

The history of Tudor's Submariner began in 1954 and there are several models. This 75090 is the 3rd generation and is also the last model to use Rolex parts with Ref.75190.

With the end of the Submariner, Tudor did not use Rolex parts and switched to dedicated parts.

Models such as Pelagos and Black Bay, which are still in the lineup, were born after switching to dedicated parts.

The dial is a matte blue dial. The second hand is a lollipop hand and the hour hand is a Mercedes hand (Benz hand). The windshield is a sapphire glass windshield.

The currently unused tritium luminous paint, the index of the type called "borderless" with no metal frame around it is a design unique to vintage divers.

At 12 o'clock on the dial, there is a shield mark that is also the current symbol of Tudor. The clasp part of the triple oyster breath also has a shield mark in the same way.

On the other hand, the back cover and crown have the Rolex crown mark.

In the case of Rolex, the Blue Submariner is a combination of stainless steel and gold (called "Roresol" in Rolex), or the lineup is only in 18K gold case.

The blue color of the stainless steel case is unique to Tudor, and because of its "borderless" vintage design, it has become particularly popular. Regarding

75090, one of the features is the middle size, which is not found in Rolex.

The bracelet is an oyster bracelet 9315. The top is a winding type, so it is very light. There are 11 frames, and one frame is included with the remainder.

Also, a warranty card, booklet, and box are included. (The box and booklet are for other models, so please consider them as a bonus.)

The movement equipped with is Cal.2824-2. Based on ETA 2824-2, it has a very good reputation for stability, robustness and ease of maintenance.

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.
