Notes

Launched in 1971, the Tudor Oyster date "Monte Carlo" reference 7159 earned its nickname due to the reminiscent design reflecting the likes of a roulette table. It succeeds reference 7032/0, with the main difference being a tachymeter scale graduated up to 500 units per hour. Offering a beautiful readability thanks to the contrast of the dial's colors, the Tudor Monte Carlo is nowadays a highly sought-after piece by collectors. Emblematic of the 1970s with its orange chronograph hand and timeless design, the model presented, dating from circa 1973 is in a beautiful state of preservation.
