This vintage Tudor Ref. 7159/0, dubbed the “Monte Carlo” due to its resemblance to a roulette table, is in fantastic vintage condition and has perfect mechanical functionality. It is a true icon of vintage Tudor, distinctive due to its bright colours and reminiscently 70’s styling. 

The stainless steel, round case measures 40 mm. The grey dial has orange Arabic numerals, luminescent baton hands and an orange chronograph hand. It has the 45-minute sub-register at three o'clock and the sub-seconds register at nine o'clock, while an aperture shows the date at six o'clock. This Tudor watch has straight-line lugs and it comes on a stainless steel Rolex Oyster bracelet with a deployant clasp.

Benefitting from the expertise of Rolex, this Tudor “Monte Carlo” features a Rolex labelled trip-lock crown, bracelet and case-back. In essence though, all Tudor parts were manufactured by Rolex. It is essentially just the movements that differentiates the two. 

Powered by a modified Valjoux 234 movement with a column wheel, guaranteeing the movement's and the screw-down chronograph pushers' smooth operation. Distinctive to the Tudor 7159s are the square crown guards, a trait only seen a few other models, and a little detail collectors look out for.

The condition of the watch is unbelievable, possessing a dial with nicely aged and patinated lumes, and in a fantastic general state.This watch has just been fully serviced to the highest possible standards by the UK's leading watch restoration service, SHWR. There is an emphasis for vintage collectors on the cases of vintage Rolexes and Tudors, as over-polishing results in a soft case that loses its edges and definition. This Tudor 7159 case, on the other hand, is in exquisite condition, still very thick, and with all bevels highly visible, as they should be.

Vintage Tudors have had a strong resurgence recently and right in the thick of it, is the Tudor Ref. 7159/0, the Monte Carlo.
