Tudor 7031 build thread

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share a little project in the works.

 

As I’ve always prefered Tudor to Rolex as I prefer the T in my line of work, the choice between a Valjoux 7734, 234 and 727, it’s not hard to decide on the cheapest option, which also happens to be the coolest of them all...

 

7734-donor watch (approx 300-500) USD eBay NOS catch: 12137E3D-D410-4F21-9ADC-3C9168C3B0D2.thumb.jpeg.78794ca7b221e086a3d7020cdee58a50.jpeg

 

Watch case and dial (approx 550-800 USD incl shipping)

The rest is plug-and-play....

(Except for 3’o’clock minute totaliser, but that’s pretty easy too...)

Almost forgot...

 

JKF ”Snowflake” 7836 w/ removed Rolex Divers extension. Not quite 100% on the Sub, but perfect for the 7031.

These builts are amazing, I saw Phong's son is selling a Tudor 7031 rtb but dial is not great. Around 2.2k, not sure who has the most accurate dial here.

 

This is going to be my next build.

Their dials are expensive and pretty bad...

 

www.rubyswatch.com has one for sale too. Ask for quote...

 

Here is the aged dial and hands...
