  • We are proud to present this 1989/90 Tudor Big Block 79180 with beautiful clean panda dial which was a graduation watch as it has a special engraving for the Geneva watchmaking school: The caseback is engraved only "Ecole d'horologerie" as the student would not want his name on a watch sold on.

    The case is insane on this watch and has thick sharp lugs with bevels. The dial is also in top condition with little to no wear on it.

    The original oyster bracelet is tight and in excellent condition.

    The Ecole d'Horlogerie de Geneve (Geneva Watchmaking School) is a public institution founded in 1824 as a vocational school for watchmakers. At the end of a watchmaking course, the student will assemble a watch from beginning to end including the movement and this watch will carry a special dial or caseback (as seen here).
