Tudor 9140 {full engine turned bezel version} Quartz ‘Integrale’.

These were twice price of the 9101, 9111, 9121 which used the 2784 ETA auto (as fitted to 9411/0 Submariner of course) and more than a 7149/59/69 Monte Carlo and 1601/1603 Datejust !!

In 1975 Quartz was expensive and hence low sales / rare !

This is a hardly seen 1975 silver dial version (-Swiss-, most Swiss) with gold indices. Also, most have grey black indices.

I Had No Idea

I had an uncle who was a Naval aviator driving F-8s during the Vietnam War and was lost over the Gulf of Tonkin (mechanical) in 1971. Our family received his effects and as a young boy I was fascinated by them (and made good use of the .22 rifle for squirrel and rabbit hunting). My dad gave me his Rolex watch, which I thought was cool as hell (especially looking at the glowing numbers when I would turn out the lights), but it was too big and required winding. I was much more interested in getting one of the new bad ass Timex digital watches.

Fast forward 45 years and when I was home last Christmas, I found the last couple boxes of my childhood "stuff" and in it was the Rolex. Being older and a little bit smarter, I knew I had something of value. This week, I had a photographer covering the taping of Antiques Roadshow, and he was allowed to bring two items for appraisal. I was going to send my Rolex with him, and decided to do some research myself beforehand.

Turns out it is an early GMT-Master, but it couldn't be one of the rare models with the Bakelite bezel, could it? I loved the history of the watch, but I have zero knowledge about fine watches so I had no expectations of it being special to the Rolex community.

Yesterday, the AR appraiser, and the other expert he called over, confirmed that it is indeed and early GMT-Master with the original bezel. They were also impressed with the case as it had never been polished (who knew?). Now knowing what I have, I figured I better hook up with a Rolex community for some advice if I need some. So here I am, and here are a couple of quick photos.

1940s Rose Gold Lebois Chronographe Extra - I wear it only occasionally to wake up the movement and only when there is zero chance of rain. It's hard to get a good picture on my phone but the dial is almost salmon at this point.

My goodness! Take some better pics, close up of the dial, back of watch plus the engravings between the lugs, just the first 3 or 4 of the serial number and post them in the Vintage forum on this site. Bracelet definitely aftermarket. Would love to see those original chamfers too! You should get a lot of responses. Would like to see better pics of that myself. What a great story and a great re-find!

That....is a facinating story...and so happy for you to have received and recovered your uncle's precious watch. Lucky guy.
You're in the right place for information..

Agreed - Start a new thread here in the Vintage forum, I imagine a lot of people will be excited to see this! Get the very brightest, sharpest pics you can - You don’t need 10 posts to attach quite large images.

I'm really enjoying this 6424 that I just got back from being serviced. Perfect 36mm size and so thin with the hand-winding movement. And the 7206 is probably my favorite Rolex bracelet.

That dial is . . . sublime. Gorgeous!

Hoping to add a few more Tudor Subs this year since the pricing has gotten a bit more manageable. Had to take another shot of the 76100 since the light was just so good.
