The 7922, being the earliest submariner of the Tudor family is definitely one of the rarest breed of all big crowns. Introduced at the same time as its big brother Rolex 6538 in 1956; side by side, both 7922 & 6538 cases are identical.
The first production (mid 1950's) 7922 sports a 8mm Brevet "+" big crown and were made for only a very short period of time. At the late 50's, Tudor changed them to the thinner case with a 6mm "small crown" and its Big Crown reference also changed to 7924 around 1958.
This 7922 feature a Cal.390 automatic movement, 17 jewels, Tudor Auto-Prince rotor, black gilt printed SWISS dial and gilt mercedes hands set with rare big bubble second hand.
Case reference "BREVET + 7922", case no. 14xxxx, both numbers sharp and easily readable. Caseback signed Montes Tudor S.A. IV1958
