For a 36mm watch, I actually prefer the Tudor Prince bracelet to the Rolex Oyster for looks. The five-across link design is better proportioned, IMO. It's a very comfortable bracelet, too, with more links than an Oyster, and is really almost half-oyster, half-jubilee.

In the looks department, I might agree vs. the Jubilee, but I still prefer an Oyster to just about any watch bracelet ever made...which is why I spent 70% of the price of the watch an an NOS Tudor Oyster bracelet to go with it.

Congrats! What dial did you go with? My black faced 76200 has easily become my most worn watch.

Thanks!
Very cool! I love that you can still buy a brushed/polished slender oyster case with drilled lugs.... even if it was difficult to locate.

I went with the black stick dial. I liked the arabic one too but ultimately I think this was the right decision for me. Cannot wait for it to arrive! and maybe now Iíll actually know what day it is! I love my BB and wouldnít change the design, but not having a date after being used to it for so many years is a bit frustrating.

Would love to see more pics of these on leather (preferably brown) straps.

Same here...Got an incoming 76200. Blue face. BTW where did you source yours from? Got mine from a fellow WUS member. BNIB. This is a great looking watch. Wear yours in good health.

Since I read your awesome review on this watch, I've been trying to find one. I wanted the Cali dial but found this BNIB blue stick instead. This one is incoming and will post pictures when it gets here. BTW great review Sir.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. It's good to see so many getting interested in this model. I look forward to seeing your blue here soon

Likewise! Coming new from HK.... been anxiously watching the tracking all weekend as I’ve been laid up sick.... but international doesn’t always update as quickly. I have received things lightning quick from there before though and the time difference worked in my favor when I ordered it. Of course I’ve been going back and forth about the dial I picked, but I always circle back to favoring it the most.

Can’t wait! such a “perfect” piece!

Please share pics everyone, I know I will!

Just ordered a new 76200 from third party internet dealer USA. Has a black dial, papers. More importantly I noticed the red plastic in two locations on the bracelet and the little serial on the case. Tells me hasn't been worn. Now I wait.

New 76200, dial

black dial configuration is stick for minutes, nothing exotic. The day wheel is in English.

As others have mentioned great thanks to member Adam for bringing this to our attention, along with his detailed review and follow ups. This was extremely helpful and a revelation to me that the watch was still available.

I'd also like to thank member "Jacobkg" for sharing his guidance in regards this reference.

This reference ticked a lot of boxes for me. Old style slim case with lug holes, classic styling, day + date complications.
I also like the fact that the bracelet is unique. As others have noted the bracelet is extremely comfortable.

Some times I wish I never signed up to this forum, read through this thread yesterday and have spent all my spare time over the last 24 hours looking for a Tudor DD.



It's a beautiful piece that I'd love to own at some point.

Thanks Jacob, I appreciate what I will assume to be a generous offer of help from a fellow forum user but will have to graciously decline on this occasion

Unfortunately too many people, especially those who post in the "want to buy section" of this site become a target for the more unscrupulous members of society. I'm not in anyway suggesting that's you, but it's a risk I'm not willing to take.

Just seen a cracking example on eBay, shame I'm not comfortable purchasing this way, even with the so called buyer protection PayPal offer which I've unfortunately found out in the past actually means very little.

The perils of buying on line, sometimes, not always,

I follow the old adage, buy the seller nor the merchandise.

I have contacted Jacob before regarding his purchase experience from an AD in Japan, I have contacted the AD and done some research and all looks legit. Havenít brought anything yet but possibly will by the end of this year.
