The Tudor Big Block Chronographs often get compared to the Daytona version produced by big brother Rolex. They may not have the prestige element carried today by vintage Rolex Daytonas but that does mean they also do not carry the same price tag!
That said they are still one of my favourite watches and one of the main reasons for this is the case size seems to be just perfect. Whereas a Daytona can seem a little small if you have reasonable sized wrists the big block has real wrist presence!
This version is the Tudor 79180 with fixed bezel, silver dial and black subdials giving it that classic look. A serial number of B44x,xxx dates it to around 1992.
A full set watch it comes with original inner and outer boxes, original stamped warranty certificate, Tudor booklet, wallet and translation paper.
The watch is in excellent condition. Photographs do not do it justice at all due to the reflections.
