Footnotes

  • The unusual shape and large size of the luminous hands are a design feature initially introduced to improve readability whilst diving in low visibility conditions. Predominantly used in its early years by divers in the French military, the "Snowflake" Submariner soon became an icon on the civilian market and has become one of the most collectible vintage Tudors made to date.

    Due to the natural deterioration of luminous paint the hands are a more recent replacement of a conforming style to the originals.
