Well I am pleased to report that I had a good experience with Jetco / JC-Station. As others have said they sent me QC photographs and timegrapher video. Delivery was very quick although I did get hit with the expected import taxes/duty (UPS into the UK). It was well packaged and the watch was pristine - absolutely brand new. They did go overboard with the stickers though which were not easy to remove! It came in the new Tudor box, with the new 2020 warranty card and manuals, hang tag etc.

My first impressions. Well I love the watch. The dial and gold in person is exactly what I was hoping. The OPs observations and pros/cons are very accurate and I agree with them.

The main surprise for me was how light it is, especially the bracelet. Coming from wearing larger more modern Tudor/Rolex watches I was surprised how light and almost toy like the bracelet felt. It rattles / jingles a fair bit with the hollow end links and pressed clasp which is not something I am used to. Having said that it feels great on the wrist and is comfortable and I forget I have it on. I have considered putting it on a leather strap or sourcing a Jubilee but for now I will keep it on its own bracelet and give it a fair run. Size wise, it has taken me a couple of days to adjust (7 inch flat wrist) but I don't think it looks bad at all - in fact I think it is keeping with the style of watch.

Other than the bracelet, the only other low points, as have been noted by others, are the lume (pretty poor) and the lack of AR on the cyclops. On my particular reference the date and day wheel is coloured gold to match and is therefore less legible that the other references which are in white, but I prefer the colour match and it doesnt bother me. One thing I did notice was the hour hand is slightly thicker than the minute hand and the lume application is also narrower- in the dark it is quite obvious but again it is part of the design of the piece and doesn't offend me. The movement seems very solid - gaining less than a second a day and I love the instant date+day change at midnight.

Overall it is a beautiful, slim and immensely wearable watch. I'm glad I have it and it has given me a renewed appreciation for Tudor. Coming at a time when the Tudor Royal (date and day complication but in 41) has just been released - I am glad more than ever that I went for the 76123 especially at an amazing price.

Pictures to follow.

Nice! If you don't mind me asking, how many percent of the total value is the import tax in the UK?

VAT is 20% plus a few % for duty. I'm not quite sure how it is calculated but I ended up paying a little less that expected.

Lovely watch! I just purchased a 76200 silver mosaic (linen) dial version from Jetco. I had a similarly positive experience with them. Really liking the watch so far.

Did you guys purchase thought Chrono24 or go directly through the AD? I have a contact in HK and was wondering if it may be easier for him to purchase the watch face to face and ship it to me.

I ordered direct through the website since they didn't have the 76213 in black on chrono at the time I ordered. No issues at all.

I went via Chrono24. The Escrow feature gave extra peace of mind. Also, the currency exchange rate was pegged - my price was shown in $CAD on Chrono24 and that is exactly what I was charged. It was the first time I used Chrono24 and I was quite impressed - I would do it again. Much better than my experience with Chronext in the past.

Does anyone know where to find a 76412 with light blue sunburst dial? Are there any HK or Japanese retailers I can contact. Might be able to travel to HK.

Tudor 76200 is extremely undervalued reference. I finally managed to hunt down the elusive California dial. Currently appropriated by my better half, she likes it more than than her 34mm Rolex.

Thee are a few on Chrono24 but at a premium compared to the regular 76200

Very informative thread, thank you all. Love this watch. Still hesitating between one these and a ''simple"" Grand Seiko...

Thanks for this amazing thread - I just read through the four years of Tudor DD info. I picked up a 76200 black stick dial and should have it in a few days.
I'd been hunting Rolex 1601/03 for months and got disheartened by how fast they are going up in value (they've risen about 15% in the past few months), and after discovering a good deal on the Tudor, which shares so many similarities, i went for it. I'm very excited and look forward to sharing when I get it.

Are these models currently produced by Tudor or are there just a surplus of them floating around in the Asian market?

my understanding they were produced exclusively for the Asian market but they are getting phrased out.

These are the Prince Date+Day models currently offered on the Tudor Hong Kong website as of February 25, 2021. The 762xx series has been around since the 1990s, and has always been available in HK.

Anyone sourced an aftermarket jubilee that works with the 762xx? Stainless steel or bi-toned?

I ordered one identical to Goose's from Jetco via Chrono24 and I looooooove it. Ordered it the evening of 9/20 and it arrived in the southern United States today, so very quick. Cost to me was $2,693 USD with an additional import duty charged via UPS of $69.

What a wonderful reference, and the price is extraordinarily affordable in this time of insano Rolex demand. I cleaned my Daytona and Datejust and stored them away because the Tudor isn't coming off my wrist for a few weeks.

Perhaps a stupid question: Other than getting a VPN, how would I view the HK version of the Tudor site? Would be very curious to see if these are still listed (actually, more interested in the 74xxx, but assuming if one is still made that both are).

I looked today and I couldn't see any of the Prince models (76/74/72) listed on the site, so they may well have been recently discontinued.

Thanks, appreciate that!

Need to do some digging - quite taken by that "linen" dial 74000. Great size and love the older style Oyster case!
