Tudor Stainless Steel "Frogman" Military Submariner Wristwatch Ref 94010
Tudor stainless steel "Frogman" military Submariner wristwatch, Ref. 94010, circa 1976.
Important watches with a military history have long been of interest to vintage watch enthusiasts. This is a great example, offered at a more modest price than many of its counterparts. The UDT ("underwater demolition team") or "Frogmen" are frequently considered among the fiercest of special operators, otherwise known as US Navy SEALs. This watch is a unique piece of Americana and was given to a member of the distinguished "Frogmen". As the popularity and renown of the Tudor brand grows, this watch offers great potential to increase in desirability over time.
The Ref. 94010 is known to have been widely distributed among the French- and Canadian military members and collectors identify these watches by their "MN" ("Marine Nationale") engraving. The engraving on this watch is absolutely fantastic and offers great provenance and commemorating a bit of American Military history.
