    Tudor 9411/0

    I present for your viewing pleasure a 1981 Genstein Franken Tudor 9411/0. The project started out with the purchase of a genuine Tudor 2784 movement and went from there.

    - Gen Tudor 2784 movement, fully disassembled, cleaned, oiled, and rebuilt. Required new automatic works bridge, balance wheel, keyless works, and stem. Unfortunately I have not sourced a glucydur balance wheel so it’s nickel for now

    - Gen 704 Rolex crown and tube

    - MQ mid case and case back. Fully reshaped & tapered lugs and lightly repshaped CG’s. Chamfers recut and case repolished. Tube retapped and countersunk to accept gen tube

    - Phong bezel assembly and insert. Lightly aged and repolished

    - Phong dial relumed

    - TC hand set, aged in Pacific Ocean water and organic apple cider vinegar, relumed to match dial

    - Verlux 25-125 crystal

    - Erika’s Original MN strap

    - And the odds and ends, gaskets lubed, new dial seat, new case clamps, new movement ring, pressure fit all parts, etc

      Very nice work, thanks for sharing. Enjoy!
      All I ask is a tall ship -- and a load of contraband to load it with.
