Why We Love It
What do you get when you blend a 39mm "sport-sized" Oyster case, tritium luminescent plots, a rotating steel Turn-O-Graph bezel, and Day/Date functionality on a watch from The Crown? The Reference 7020/0 Tudor Date+Day, of course!
While Rolex never produced a full size steel Day-Date under their own branding, they did produce a short run of Date+Day models for Tudor, which is what we have for you here. It is one of the coolest, rarest, and most functional pieces ever produced under the Rolex umbrella, and one we continually scour the market for, turning up only a handful of other examples in the past several years.
This particular example possesses a strong case a beautiful matte grey dial with light even patina, as well as a Spanish date wheel, which only adds to its allure!
The Rolex Day-Date is in many ways the perfect dress watch. It’s undeniably beautiful, but sturdy enough to wear every day, and versatile enough to be worn on a bracelet or a strap (with Rolex buckle, naturally). For the longest time it was Rolex’s only complicated wristwatch in continuous production (until the launch of the Daytona in the 1960s); the Day-Date is the Crown’s crown jewel.
But for those of us who prefer something sportier, a touch larger, and in steel, but with the same look and feel as the Day-Date… we’re sorry to say that it doesn’t exist—or, at least, Rolex doesn’t make it.
Fortunately for us, Tudor did.
The Reference 7020/0 Tudor Oyster Prince Date+Day was only made for a few years between the late '60s and early '70s. With a very small production run, examples turn up infrequently on the market.
When it comes to characteristics, there's nothing not to love about this watch. The steel Oyster Case—as large as a Submariner, at 39mm—gives it a distinctly masculine feel. The day wheel at 12:00 ensures this won't be confused with a Datejust or Prince Oysterdate, while the addition of a steel rotating "Turn-O-Graph"-style bezel provides an unmistakable sport element.
On paper, the Reference 7020/0 has all of our favorite things, but on the wrist, it’s even better. Though the case proportions are on the larger size for the era, it’s not as bulky as its Rolex-branded counterparts. The ETA movement ensures that the watch wears considerably thinner, making it ideal for daily use and wear.
