    Been having a look at this Tudor and am wondering if this movement looks good to anyone. It is my first time examining and am trying to make sense of it, can anyone shed any light as to what kind of movement this is? Thank you!

    Looks like FHF 30. Although Tudor and Oyster used several movements other than the FHF 30 that resembled this one. It seems that Rolex had the manufacturer of the movement custom tailor the plate shapes to their specs. Tudor and Oyster called the caliber number 59. Images from the Ranfft archive.

    Notice there are two movements shown in the attachment. The second one (apparently) shows the version of the FHF 30 that is in the subject watch. AFAIK, this movement was not used in any watch that was branded Rolex.

    Too much damage and very rough condition for me, I wonder if there is still spare parts for it, otherwise try cousinsuk.com
