I am looking to buy a Tudor Prince Oysterdate Chronograph 79280 which is stamped on case between lugs , however the serial numbers don't appear to match this the number is 3861*** the 3 cannot be a B as they are very well defined

Can anyone explain?

Can anyone help me with this one.

It's a ladies Tudor Monarch 2, should I ignore the 0 at the start?

New member from BA - AR.

I'd like to add my information to this thread.

Tudor Prince Oysterdate
Model 7966/0
Serial nș 58163XX
ETA2484 Caliber
Date numbers in alternating black/red
Bracelet 78350/19 with 557 endlinks

Apparently manufactured in 1966 or 1967, there are no manufacture date markings inside.

It was purchased 12/1971 in Bridgetown, Barbados when I lived there.
It was a present from Dad after finishing 5th. form at Harrison College.

Original bracelet, endlinks and dial were replaced during service in BA around 1976.

Original dial had a black background with the Tudor shield, no numbers.

It's had some heavy use and the hack feature stopped working long ago so I decided to send it in for a complete service ($$$ !) as apparently the last time was in 1995.

Firstly thank you for the serial number database, it proved invaluable for dating a Tudor Oyster that has been knocking around in a drawer. But I have a suggestion. For the database would it be possible to put the dates of landmarks in differences?

I've done extensive searches on images and found that in 1959 case numbers were on the case back and the 1960 Oyster case I have is marked between the lugs, in 1961 there are many examples of "between the lugs" numbering. So to me as a total amateur, it appears that between 1959-1960 Rolex changed stamping model/ serial numbers to between the lugs and I wondered if there was a date on this.
