“I HAVE DECIDED THAT THE TUDOR PRINCE DESERVES TO SHARE WITH ROLEX TWO ADVANTAGES I WOULD ALLOW NO OTHER WATCH TO USE – THE FAMOUS AND UNIQUE WATERPROOF OYSTER CASE AND THE ORIGINAL SELF-WINDING PERPETUAL ’ROTOR’ MECHANISM.

John Anthony Walker was an American Navy officer, leader of the Walker Family Spy ring, and was convicted in 1985 of spying for over 17 years during the cold war for the Soviet Union. Walker is said to have given over a million documents (mostly code cards) to the Soviets and provided enough code-data information to alter significantly the balance of power between Russia and the United States. When he was arrested all of his assets were sized by the FBI and eventually sold by public auction to the highest bidder. This watch is said to have been purchased in that auction which I understand took place in Florida, this is what I was told by the collector that I purchased it from. Besides the story behind it this is a great looking and freshly serviced, big, very colorful and complicated Wakmann Regate 1970’s vintage automatic chronograph which has a rotating inner bezel, quick date, sweep chrono hand, pointer minute register hand, sub seconds and sub 12 hour register.
