got a few -
here's a 79090 (1991) that i got from the orig owner, retired eastern airline pilot - he said he'd only worn it a dozen times to dress occasions, and it looked it. He had everything with it, including the original purchase rcpt. It had just come back from svcing at a rolex center when he put it up for sale and i've been afraid to wear it, still has that "new car smell".



this one i actually forgot i had (been away from watches for 3 years)


and just so no one thinks i'm totally queer for blue, this is a 7016/0 that i had redialed


got a couple 7928s i need to photograph

Thanks for posting! You have a nice collection of Tudor subs there. What is the story behind the Blue Snowflake?

i went thru some serious surgery sometime back and suffered a pretty serious memory loss. as i explained in my pm response, it's when i go thru the purchase files in my old computer that details come back, not all of them, but enough.

i actually went thru three of them, and have this one and another project snowflake that's going to be for sale (missing glass retaining ring, bezel and insert) but let me dig thru my files, and i'll post details with more photos

for a little eye candy now, here's a 7928 that i purch'd 4-5 years ago from an interesting individual, son of the original purchaser.

watch is all original except for the dial - it's the orig dial but been redialed, as it had some black mold growing off the hour markers in the 3-6:00 quadrant. IIRC, it's a 63 date in the case back, but i have to either pull it off or go thru my old files.

what was nice about it though, was it came with it's orig bracelet and box, but that'll be a topic for another day when i've got my camera skills back to snuff and some time

Hello Tudor Snowflake Sub owners! Might any of you have the original literature that came with your sub or possibly period catalog/advertisements that you would be willing to scan and share with me? My Sub did not come with and would love to see.

Thank you! Brian

Hi, I'm new to the forum, thought I'd show my "Snowflakes" for a first post. A blue 9411/0 along with a black 7016/0.

Got this a couple of weeks after this thread was started and never posted a photo. I just got it back after having the pearl replaced (it was missing).

Looking for a blue one now!

Guys, to the ones that know me and also the guys I've yet to meet, thanks for a great welcome. Great threads, great posts and great watches on the forum and of course great members.
Dangerous though, I can see being a member here being very hard on the wallet.

Another pic. to stick with the theme of this thread.
