WTS Rare military issued Tudor 4463 Small Rose (uncommon dial)
For sale is my rare military issued Tudor 4463 with a very uncommon dial.
RARE REFERENCE 4463- this is the first waterproof watch made by tudor.
RARE 14K PINK GOLD/STEEL- unique example in the market that feature a 14k pink gold oyster patent crown and bezel.
TOP CONDITION- I believe there is no other 4463 the same as this one. The case has sharp angles and thick lugs.
SINGLE PIERCED LUGS- lugs are only pierced by the left side, very nice detail and not commonly seen.
TWO TONE PATINA DIAL- the dial feature a chapter ring with a lighter color and the inside a darker cream patina tone, looks incredible under sunshine light and is flawless, beautiful aged.
ROSE IN SHIELD LOGO- this particular logo can only be seen in watches from this period and is a classic in tudor history
MILITARY ENGRAVINGS- 4 digit serial number on top of the reference number can be spotted on the caseback outside, tudor serial number at the time was 28xxx 5 digit. This means the watch was never intended for civilian use, but a military batch instead probably for the british troops. Other tudor and rolex watches from this period have this 4 digit serial.
Comes with straps pictured.
I have not seen another Tudor 4463 with this combination of characteristics. First, the unusual dial with an inner sector of minute counters and the outer sector of even hour markers. Next, the 2 tone rosegold/steel case; rosegold was very rare in the 40s-50s.
