TUDOR REF. 7924
This is one of the important Tudor Submariners to own. The Ref. 7924, dubbed the ‘Big Crown’, due to its large 8mm crown and similar to its big brother, the Rolex Submariner 6538. New to this model when released in 1958, was the increased depth rating, doubling that of its predecessor and also sporting a thicker case. The no crown guard look for a tool watch, with its simplicity and symmetry is a look that is admired by many collectors. I tend to agree that there is certainly a purity with Rolex/Tudor swiss sports watch models without crown guards, both in its design and primitive functionality.
