Pre-Owned: Tudor 79170
A lot of collectors call the Daytona the big brother when in fact the Tudor Big Block is the big brother of the Daytona and practically the Sea Dweller if we talk about case size. People don’t know that the Tudor Big Block Automatic Chronograph was years before the Rolex Daytona. The case being a Rolex case, was the deepest oyster case made until the Sea Dweller got sized up for diving. The Big Block was truly ahead of it’s time being scoped up by collectors for this reason.
