    i have been looking for an early Tudor Submariner snowflake for quite sometime and i finally got one with a reference 7016/0. Most of the early snowflakes have bubbling issues in the dial but this one is near flawless with a nice pumpkin patina. The minute hands looks relumed. The faded bezel is the desirable fat font with kissing 4. The case appears unpolished and plus it comes with the original bracelet. A great addition to my collection.

    Very nice, btw there are a some really good period correct vintage bezel pips available, and they can be inserted in that bezel by a skilled watchmaker without too much trouble. I had it done on my 1680 ghost bezel and it really came out looking great. Beautiful piece mate :thumbsup:

    That is a beauty. These snowflakes are so much fun to wear. I agree with the above statement, source a pip and install it. It makes a huge difference, but no rush. Enjoy!

    That looks wonderful, the bubbled dials are fine for a nice patina'd look it looks much better like this . Congratulations!
