Tudor Date+Day 7017: Day wheel in sunday red?

Hi all

I just acquired a Tudor Date+Day 7017 over the weekend. There's something that has me concerned - the font on the day-wheel looks markedly different from what I see in many photos (a little taller), and the "Sunday" is in red.

Does anyone know if this is an accepted variation for the Tudor day-dates?

I will try and post some photos when I get home today if anyone needs to see it.

I have never seen one with a red sunday wheel. Try to post a scan.

Cheers

No red on my 7020/0.

Hi folks

Some photos uploaded. Thanks for any responses.
... is the day wheel correct? Is the rest of the dial ok?




I adjusted the day:







... your opinions welcome!

Your's has the second version dial (mine has the first) that appears legit, although I don't have another to compare.
Being colorblind I cant tell if the date is black or red. Maybe the day wheel was changed to a different language at one time? I've seen that font before but not sure if it's authentic. Morgan should be along soon to verify.

Thanks Dan.. I'm waiting for some opinions but so far, I'm not optimistic about the day disc. I have a few more days to think about it and decide if I want to keep it.

Just took another look. Where did you get the flush-fitted end-pieces to match the 7020?

Are they original to the watch?

These are custom made by a member of The Rolex Forum (etur). He makes them for many Rolex and Tudor references, including two tone. They just sit between the case and strap and make any strap look OEM. Very reasonably priced and super high quality.

Also had a set made for my GMT.
