These Tudor Submariners offer very similar features to their 4 digit Rolex counterparts, but in a more affordable package thanks to the ETA 2824-2 self winding movement beating inside. This is the full size version that comes in a 40mm case with 20mm lugs.

Case: The lugs are thick and the case is generally strong, but there is some softening around the chamfers and on the case back. The case shows many little dings and scratches that you'd expect from normal wear over 30 years. The genuine bezel is in great condition and has a tritium pearl that matches the aging of the dial. The crown does not screw all the way to the case. It will screw down a few turns, but it doesn't go as far as other 79090s.
Dial, Hands, & Crystal: TThe dial is a nice matte black that goes from a warm grey to a rich black depending on the angle and lighting. Both the dial and hands have matching tritium with a lovely custard patina. The hands do show slight deterioration. The crystal was recently replaced with a new genuine Tudor 25-144 plexi crystal. The watch passed a wet pressure test after the crystal was installed. While it's not advised to take a vintage watch swimming, if you do decide to swim with it I'd encourage you to do another pressure test just to be safe.
Bracelet/Strap: The bracelet does show signs of wear and was recently repaired. During the last service, links were fitted from another Tudor 9315 bracelet. Because of this, the links from one side of the bracelet have a different level of wear than the links on the other side. Some of the links also have slight denting from the removal and re-installation process.
Functions: All functions including the crown-winding, time-setting, and date-setting are working as expected.
Service History: The movement was last serviced in March of 2021 at a shop in Japan.
