Catalogue Note

The Tudor 7928 was the first Submariner with crown guards and the last model using the FEF movement. It was only available between 1959 and 1967 and is considered as the cousin of the Rolex 5513/5512. This lot has an attractive dial with silver writing perfectly completed by its ghost bezel.
