Tudor / Rolex Oyster Ref. 7803 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1950

A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch with ‘honeycomb’ dial

This is a great looking Tudor wristwatch, the cream coloured dial has a ‘honeycomb’ textured finish which has acquired a wonderfully warm and even patina. The steel case retains good definition with crisp, chamfered bezel and substantial down-turned lugs. This Tudor watch was one of the last to feature the ‘Rose’ motif within a shield to its dial; at the time of its manufacture, the logo was on the cusp of being transformed to feature a larger ‘Rose’ that was no longer bordered by the shield motif.
