Introduced in 1995, the Tudor Prince Date Chronograph ref. 79280 holds a significant place as one of the final timepieces showcasing the renowned watchmaker's iconic vintage design, marking the transition towards the brand's modern era.
Following the end of the collaboration between Tiger Woods and Tudor in 2002, the brand underwent a transitional phase until 2009. During this period, Tudor made several notable changes to their timepieces. Firstly, the brand removed the mention of "Tiger" from their watches. Additionally, the 12-hour bezel, as well as the green and burgundy dials, were discontinued.
