Tudor 7021/0 Oyster Prince Submariner, a.k.a the Tudor Blue Snowflake 1969 with roulette date wheel

WRIST ICONS presents the Tudor 7021/0 Submariner Blue Snowflake with an original hard to find roulette date wheel from 1969. This is one of the most iconic diving watches ever made. The watch has a beautiful blue dial and bezel with its very different and appealing snowflake styled hands for increased visibility during diving. Tudor Snowflakes are the Submariners of Tudor with reference numbers 7016/0, 7021/0, 9104/0, and 9411/0 produced from 1969 to 1975 and some newer reissue models. This Snowflake is one of the most desirable since it is Tudor Submariner

History of the Tudor Snowflake
In 1954 Tudor released their first diving watch reference 7922, TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner . Tudor supplied the Snowflake Submariners to the Marine Nationale (French Navy), especially the Groupe de Plongeurs Démineurs (founded in 1955 ). They became a testing bed for Tudor’s Submariner line. They used the Tudor Submariners from the mid 1950's to the early 1980's. Although a diver’s watch at its core, the Tudor Submariner “Snowflake” was also fashioned to be suitable and elegant enough for everyday use.

What sets the Tudor Submariner apart from other diving watches are its distinctive snowflake hands with square luminescent hands and hour markers, which allowed users to clearly see the dial underwater. The watch was introduced in a black and a blue dial. This particular watch has the more desired blue dial. The Tudor Snowflake Submariner was the first model to use Tudor’s new logo, a shield. On top of that this watch This specific reference 7021/0 was the first Tudor Submariner to feature a date complication and it also has a rather cool roulette date wheel, with black numbers of un even dates and red numbers for the even dates. Really often this date wheel has been changed after service and thereby this reference was also produced without a roulette date wheel.

This stunning example of The Tudor Snowflake 7021/0 reference is in really good honest vintage condition. It has all the good parts what makes this a great looking vintage piece
Dial: Original Blue Tritium dial with stunning " patina. Similarly to the case, the blue dial is in excellent condition, the hour markers of the dial have a really nice patina with a kind of creamy colour.
Hands: Original "Snowflake" Tritium hands. The creamy patina of the snowflake hands match the patina of the square hour markers perfectly. Possibly the lume of the hands have been stabilized.
