The Tudor “Snowflake” is the nickname given to the Tudor Submariners with unique features such as the square hour markers and a unique snowflake hands that were introduced by Rolex/Tudor to increase visibility in low light conditions. In production from 1968 to the mid-1980s with dial variants commonly found in black or blue and the watch can feature at date complication. However, there is more to the Tudor’s Snowflake Submariner line than its unique and different visual features.
This specific example would make a great addition to a growing collection or be a great first piece as it retains the classic and timeless look of the Submariner while being unique and eye-catching as a result of the unique dial and hand configuration

Dial Blue "Confetti"
Bracelet Handmade Leather Strap
CASE & BRACELET
The previously polished case retains nice thick and even lugs. The watch retains the original Rolex signed trip-lock crown. The original "fat font" bezel insert has taken on a light grey fade showing some patina from use with the original pearl remaining intact. The case back engravings are clear and remain clear and visible. The watch will be supplied with a handmade leather strap.
DIAL & HANDS
The Black matte "snowflake" dial is in wonderful vintage condition. The matte portion of the dial itself has taken on an interesting velvety textured patina; sometimes referred to as a confetti dial due to the fact that the matte dial consists of flecks of blue, green, grey, and black that make up the base color of the dial. There is some degradation on the right side of the dial by the rehaut that can be seen when looking at the side of the dial at a slight angle. The lume plots have taken on a charming ivory patina. The lume plots when viewed under U.V. light show no lume loss or degradation. The original "snowflake" hands have been restored professionally by Los Angeles Watch Works using tritium to match the coloration of the lume plots on the dial.
None. The watch is keeping time at spec but extended service history is unknown.
