For many years, I have been researching military Tudors. One of my favourite things is receiving an email from the original owner of a watch, especially if it's a militaristic piece. I was fortunate to have received a lot of emails from Canadian Navy divers, whose valuable information has helped me shape my research on these watches.

Virtually all military Rolex Day-Date Replicas are essentially factory-specification watches with no discernable markings on the dials, unusual bezel inserts or hands. This is in contrast to Rolex MilSubs, which had many unique factors. The caseback is where Tudor military watches really shines. The caseback of French Navy watches has "MN" ("Marine Nationale") inscribed on its reverse. South African watches have the serial replica watches This is also the case for all other documented examples. Some pieces issued by the Canadian Navy do not have engravings. However, those that have engravings are either marked with the owner's name, rank, serial number, or Navy Stores stock number.

It has been a tedious process to build my knowledge about the Canadian panerai replica watches I would venture to say that there is still much to learn. I spoke with Canadian Navy divers firsthand and have compiled information from online watch forums and emails from friends who have spoken to divers and administrators.

We know Tudor kept a number of watches in reserve for Department of Defence orders. As serial numbers of provenanced watches are compiled, these batches become evident. We can then determine the "correct" serial numbers for certain issued reference numbers.

One Canadian-issued watch is perhaps the most interesting of all 9401/0 Submariners.Replica Watches These watches look very much like matte Rolex 5513s. They have rectangular "3-6-9", triangular "12", and remaining circular plots. These watches have "snowflake hand sets", which is an interesting twist. There have been a few "oddball MilSubs" where Navy watchmakers used whatever materials they had; this is what makes it so much fun to find MilSubs in combat. However, the combination mentioned above has been used in many configurations and almost all of them have a history with the Canadian Navy.

These watches were shipped in a small batch of serial replica watches I believe they were delivered in this configuration. Another theory is that the Canadian Navy added "snowflake hands" to the watches at divers' request. This would have made it easier for them to read, as Mercedes hands are the most logical way to use hands on this dial. This 9401/0 watch configuration had the exact same layout as the Tudor Heritage Black Bay.

These watches were sold as a store item. The diving officer signed all equipment (regulators and masks, fins etc.) out to the stores. Individual divers were issued "Temporary Loan Card" Although the diving officer kept a log, it did not include details like the model or serial numbers of the watches. It was more of a checklist to make sure that six watches were returned when divers left the team or were posted off of the vessel. Most likely,Rolex Day-Date Replica the markings on the number 9401/0 are a store number. These markings would have been used to track the watches issued by the officer because of their rough "field" engraving and the style and location on the caseback.
