TUDOR HOMEPLATE REF. 7031
Fine and very rare stainless steel manual winding chronograph wristwatch with 2 registers and date. with paper.
In 1970, Tudor, often considered to be the youngest member of the Rolex family, produced its first chronographs called Oysterdate. Thus simultaneously, two references are launched: the 7031/0 and the 7032/0. While the first has a black bezel, a tribute to the Rolex references 6241 or 6263, the second has a smooth bezel, like the reference 6265 by Rolex. Here, the wristwatch is a reference 7031 with a bezel with a black epoxy insert. The model was nicknamed “Home Plate” by collectors, because of its dial so characteristic that one can imagine the home base of a baseball field. Extremely well preserved, the watch we present has its original papers. Innovative yet classic in design, the Tudor “Home Plate” is an essential part of a collection that reflects the evolution of modern chronographs.
