The excellent case has been previously lightly polished, retaining its factory high shine finish showing some wear. The stainless steel UPH bezel remains in overall excellent vintage condition showing no enamel loss and some wear from use. The Tudor signed trip-lock crown and screw down pushers all remain original to the watch. The Tudor 78400 oyster bracelet with 605 end pieces is in excellent unpolished condition showing light wear and little to no stretch, retaining 13 links.

The vibrant blue sunburst "Tiger" dial is in flawless condition. The white Arabic numerals are highly visible against the blue dial. The original tritium lume plots show no lume degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original tritium minute and hour hands match the dial perfectly, showing no lume loss or degradation under U.V. light inspection. The all red sweep-seconds chronograph hand creates excellent color contrast with the dial.
