Notes

 Launched in 1957, the Tudor Advisor was the first and only alarm watch produced by Rolex/Tudor at the time. It was produced until approximately 1968, when a new, straighter lugs case was introduced with reference 10050. While the majority of references 7926 are found with the usual silver dial, which are often prone to oxydation, this example has the much rarer original black dial in excellent overall condition: this is the Advisor to own.
