Not sure a gloss blue dial is correct for the year either. Thought the gloss blue dials came later to resolve the dial-rot early ones were suffering from.

 

 

Are you talking about the 2461-to-blue-dial relationship? 

Honestly, I’m okay with it if there’s a few year gap between the two.

No, more when the dial coating was improved. Think it was the late seventies on the 94010.

Maybe. There are plenty of ref. 7016 for sale with a blue dial. Not that that in its self is definitive - as my dial refinisher said, people are changing them to blue all the time. 

Fratello indicates the 7016 was available in both black and blue when Tudor transitioned to snowflake dials.

Springbar indicates on 7021 was available in blue.

Yes, they were available in blue and black. I’m talking about the surface finish. At some point in the late 70s the dial coating was improved gaining an enamel-like finish. I.e. gloss. The earlier dials would have been matt.
