Item No. 4671

Today's offering showcases this rare and striking Art Deco mens Tudor ref. 746. The unusual case has distinctive ribbon lugs. It measures 33mm in diameter.

This is the first of this model Tudor we have seen, and our research hasn't turned up another. Powering it is its caliber 290 handwound movement.

It is in beautiful original condition, fully original down to the dial, hands, and Rolex cabochon winding crown. It has been freshly serviced.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

Tudor brand:

When Rolex launched the Tudor brand in 1945, they strongly intended that the public perception of its quality had to equal that of Rolex. To achieve this lofty aim, until the mid-1990's, Tudor watches featured Rolex cases and crowns, and, until 1971, Rolex bracelets.
