I am new to this site and new to collecting vintage watches. I am reposting my query here on the vintage watch forum per another member's excellent suggestion, (I previously posted this on the Public Forum).
I'm starting off my collection with two watches my father gave me and am trying to find the date of manufacture for each. The first one is a stainless steel Tudor Prince Oysterdate with the small Tudor rose logo. The back plate simply says "Oyster by Rolex" and has what I assume is the serial number, 243966, above another number, 7956. The Tudor Serial Number project doesn't list any Oysterdates with a 24xxxx serial number nor any Tudors made before 1959, which I am sure this watch was base upon when my father acquired it. That is the first picture attached.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
