This Tudor was a 21st gift and so has great sentimental value for its owner. It was restored without his knowledge by his wife to be presented to him as a special birthday surprise. The case was completely stripped of the previous plating, and machined to remove the surface rust on the seal and glass seatings. The case was polished, refinished, and along with a brand new Tudor bracelet, was gold plated. 



Once all the casing components were fitted, the case was waterproof tested to 100m. The movement was completely overhauled, screws were polished and worn components replaced. The watch was timed and tested before being returned to the customer.
