In 1995, the Prince Oysterdate self-winding chronograph underwent a subtle yet significant redesign with the introduction of the 79200 reference series. The case, which had maintained its famous imposing and sharp presence over three generations of chronographs, became more refined and softer. While keeping its highly recognizable silhouette, it now presented softer lines consisting of curves and rounded configurations.

Three notable changes marked the design of this fourth generation: a new characteristic dial with a silver color and cream-colored counters was introduced, a black anodized aluminum insert with a transfer replaced the traditional Plexiglas tachymetric-scale bezel insert, and a sapphire crystal with a Cyclops lens was adopted, replacing the Plexiglas crystal. Its movement remained the self-winding Valjoux Calibre 7750, but in a substantially improved version with characteristic finishing that benefitted from a particular aesthetic effort, called the "special TUDOR" decor. The rotor was now engraved and gilded instead of transfer-marked, and the screws were polished rather than matte.

In 1996, as Montres TUDOR S.A. celebrated its 50th anniversary, the brand had attained maturity and was well-known in all markets. The direct references to Rolex began gradually disappearing from TUDOR watch cases, winding crowns, and bracelets.

The 79000 series represented the ultimate incarnation of the TUDOR Oysterdate chronograph in terms of performance and quality, with the movement used in its most advanced version and a particularly resistant sapphire crystal. Reference 79280 indicated the model with a steel bezel and an engraved tachymetric scale. This 1995 example featured a brilliant enamel-type white dial with black counters, the "OYSTERDATE" signature visible on the dial, and the TUDOR logo on the folding clasp.
