Info:

In 1960, Tudor brought the 4th reference to the market with the Tudor Submariner 7928, the most classic looking Tudor Submariner watches in their time line (very similar to the Rolex Submariner 5512 and 5513 references). This watch was bigger (40mm) and much more rugged. The bezel changed to the riveted version where the first 15 minutes are also marked. The watch was very popular due to the significantly lower price than a Rolex Submariner. Unlike the Rolex Submariner, this movement was not chronometer certified, it was the automatic movement Fleurier 390 and had a long production run from 1960 to 1968. At the end of 1966 the dial underwent modifications; the closed minute track is replaced by a new open one, but still gilt. The indexes are no longer gold-printed circles, but rather white indexes filled with lume. Further the silver graphics are progressively replaced with white ones.
