Why We Love it

In the past 10 years, Tudor has been doing a fantastic job with their contemporary offerings. Watches such as the Black Bay, Heritage Chronograph and Pelagos collections have been flying off the shelves for their impressive looks, sporty construction and aggressive price points. But their professional line doesn't tell the whole story of Tudor's rebirth.

Also included in the brand’s modern offerings are watches such as the Glamour, a sort of contemporary take on the Prince. And if we rewind the clocks somewhat to the 1990s, we find the most contemporary iteration of the Prince itself — an easy-wearing timepiece that featured in the Tudor collection from the mid-20th century. 

This particular Prince, a Reference 74000, dates to circa 1996 and features a 34mm stainless steel case, a magnified sapphire crystal, a signed crown, a glossy white Tritium dial with printed Arabic numerals a matching handset, a robust a proven automatic-winding ETA movement within, and a matching stainless steel multi-link bracelet with a signed blade clasp.

These pieces are incredibly versatile for everyday use, and can easily be dressed-up for formal occasions or dressed-down and worn as a sporty everyday companion!

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition showing signs of light wear from gentle use. Gloss white Tritium dial with printed 'Arabic' indices is in equally excellent condition with matching handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf created Tudor in 1926 for the everyman — for miners, construction workers and all sorts of tradesmen. For your everyday person Rolex was sometimes — and is now more so than ever — out of reach. It was meant for the explorer and the businessman, whereas Tudor was to be a different creature entirely.
In creating Tudor, Wilsdorf wanted to offer “a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standards of dependability for which Rolex is famous.”
Tudors were in many ways Rolexes in all but name, with the same waterproof Oyster cases and similar styling. However, in order to keep costs down, the brand used off-the-shelf Swiss movements rather than their own in-house calibres. What resulted were watches that were more affordable than Rolexes to the consumer, but still uniformly tough and reliable.
Today Tudor has certainly defeated any impression of being the redheaded stepchild of the Rolex family, and their current timepiece collection — as well as their vintage counterparts — are getting the recognition and respect they most rightfully deserve. From the colorful “Home Plate” chronograph to the complicated Advisor, these models often picked up where Rolex left off, daring to be more bold and playful in their design. And now that the brand has introduced in-house movements while still managing to keep pricing modest, the company is better poised than ever to win the hearts and minds of millions of new watch enthusiasts.
