    Finally was able to track down my reasonably priced grail watch - 1960's Tudor Date/Day 7019/4 with the slate gray face and white gold fluted bezel. I know Tudor doesn't get much respect in the WIS circles, however the Datejust at 36mm is just too small for me (I was looking for a slate gray piepan for a long time). This is the "Jumbo" tudor at 38mm and it has the same S/S case as the same era Rolex Milgauss. Came with an almost unworn vintage Rolex jubilee bracelet, but i prefer to wear it on a Croc strap for now. I'm supremely happy that I finally tracked one down and in great, unpolished condition too!

    Thanks luckyhands! I'm in love so far. Been searching for a couple of years for this exact piece.

    Very nice - who did your strap?

    ^ tudor is lovely, and a great brand IMO. i agree that the 38mm is a very wearable size.
    i'd really like one of their old ND subs.
    to the guy who asked, no the explorer doesn't come with a date. to me it would spoil the beautiful simplicity of the dial.

    Thanks! I realize that I really can't wear anything beyond 42mm these days and my comfort zone is between a 38-40. I'm waiting for the prices on the heritage chrono to calm down. I know it's an homage watch, but it ticks all the boxes for my 1960's colorful watch face fetish and twin subdials (I love the symmetry much more than a 3-dial).
