Notes

The Tudor Date-Day was the sister version of the Rolex Day- Date. The references 7017, 7019 and 7020 were the first models available, produced from 1970. They had different bezels (regular steel, fluted or revolving) that ultimately defined their reference number. Reference 7020 was probably the most interesting of the three as it featured a revolving bezel that was unique to this model and was never featured on any of the Rolex Day-Dates.
