All original condition. Working Perfectly. All original parts. This watch will make a solid medium to long term investment (in our opinion) and looks super cool when wearing.

Background
In 1970, TUDOR launched its first chronograph, the Oysterdate. This robust, functional watch offered a unique design, paving the way for 50 years of TUDOR chronographs.
There were three variations of this first sporty TUDOR chronograph, each distinguished by their bezel type.
The second generation of TUDOR chronographs was launched in 1971 and featured in the brand's catalogue until 1977. Dubbed the TUDOR "Monte-Carlo" among enthusiasts thanks to their roulette wheel-style dials, the 7100 series chronographs retained the same case as their predecessors as well as the spirit of their dial, but the movement changed.
Instead of the Valjoux 7734 calibre, the latest TUDOR chronographs were now equipped with the manually wound Valjoux 234. This new movement offered a more sophisticated chronograph mechanism, with clutch and column wheel.
A new colour combination was introduced in this series, TUDOR's signature blue, with a blue and grey dial and two types of matching blue bezel. This new series consisted of three chronographs. Reference 7149/0, with its Plexiglas bezel and tachymetric scale graduated up to 500 units per hour, replaced reference 7031/0 in the catalogue. Reference 7159/0, with its satin-brushed steel bezel and engraved tachymetric scale, replaced reference 7032/0; while reference 7169/0 became the now mass-produced incarnation of the 7033/0 prototype with rotating bezel.

A word of warning to buyers of this watch. Do not buy it if the seller cannot show you the movement photo. Always look for pictures of the movement. As shown here this is 100% authentic 29.92mm Vajoux 234 movement, 18 jewels and 48 power reserve.

This watch will suit most occasions and the date function at the "6 position" is obviously a useful / essential tool for some.

Overall a wonderful condition and looking watch which can be versatile. We see no reason how this watch would not work on say a nato, rubber band or good quality leather strap to dress it up.
