For nearly half a century, TUDOR has left its mark on the history of chronographs with products of strong identity, unique style and uncompromising quality. By proving equal to the task, by kindling passion, by constantly improving its products and by offering models clearly belonging to their era but retaining their own distinct identity, TUDOR has earned a place apart in the field of sports chronographs, embodied in the development of four successive families of products.

The year 1976 saw the launch of the third family of TUDOR chronographs, known as “Big Block” in the watch collection milieu, and the introduction of an important innovation. With the Prince Oysterdate models, the brand presented its first chronographs equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement and confirmed what the Oysterdate family had begun. TUDOR offered immediately recognisable chronographs with excellent technical qualities.

In 1989, references 79100 were introduced into the catalogue to replace the 9400s. Their case remained identical, which allowed them to retain the nickname “Big Block”. The changes made in this new series were minimal and mainly aesthetic. Reference 79160 of 1989 pictured here allows us to observe the details. The dial bore the indication “OYSTERDATE”. The case and winding crown were still signed Rolex, but the bracelet from then on would bear the TUDOR logo on its clasp. The self-winding movement at its heart was still the Valjoux calibre 7750.
