    Thanks, Jane. Yes it is: my dad bought it new in Switzerland (Bucherer's) in the early 50's, and wore it actively until the mid 70's. We took our first trip as a family to Europe in 1976, and visited the same Bucherer store in Lucerne where he bought a new Rolex Submariner (mom got a Tudor Princess Oysterdate). By then, this little Tudor was pretty beat up and consigned to a drawer. In the 80's, my dad gave it to me, and in the 90's I had the movement and dial overhauled. Dad passed before he could see it finished, unfortunately.
