The early Tudor Chronograph references are commonly referred to as the Tudor "Big Blocks" as the mid-case size is thicker and heaver then the big brother Rolex Daytona references. Tudor watches is a Swiss manufacturer of high-quality wristwatches based in Geneva.

At the heart of this watch is a legendary automatic winding high grade workhorse Valjoux 7750 movement at 17 jewels , which runs great and all functions work as expected.



The dial on this specific Tudor reference 79160 is also very similar to the Rolex Daytona's of this era as it possesses the trapezoidal applied markers and a stunning silver surface that is reminiscent of the Rolex Daytona 6265 of the same era which also posses black stepped subdials with the white chrono hands located within the subdials. This model of Tudor features a original Grey-Cream color dial with silver color hour markers. The white sub dials also give this watch a sunning contrast on the wrist. Signed "Tudor" , "OysterDate", "Automatic-Chrono", "Time", "T Swiss Ma T". Beautiful silver hours and minutes hands.



The early Tudor Chronograph references do share a lot of common traits to the big brother Rolex Daytona references including the same steel bezel with engraved tachometer scale which is mounted on stainless steel watch case 40 mm (1,57 inch) excluding the crown and 48mm (1,89 inch) from lug to lug is in good condition.
