Why We Love it

Tudor Subs offer a distinctive flavor of "The Same...But Completely Different!"

Its watches were Rolexes in all but name: same Rolex Oyster case, same crowns, and Rolex crystals. The only difference was what beat inside the Oyster cases — Swiss ETA movements rather than movements that Rolex built in-house.

We've long appreciated the subtle variations and the tremendous value proposition that Tudor offers when compared to their Rolex siblings.

This particular piece, a Reference 79090, dates to circa 1995 and features an excellent holey-lug Oyster case, a matte black dial with evenly patinated Tritium indices and a matching handset, a magnified acrylic crystal, a folded-link Oyster bracelet with a Tudor-signed fliplock clasp, and of course the always-desirable classic Rolex Submariner proportions.

It would be enough to enjoy this excellent piece on its own, but this piece comes compete with its full kit!

This piece offers exceptional bang for the buck in the neo-vintage sports watch category — don't miss it!

Overall Condition

The case is in fantastic condition overall showing signs of light previous polishing and normal signs of wear consistent with age and use. Matte black Tritium dial is in very good condition with evenly patinated indices and matching handset. Rolex signed Triplock crown. Bezel insert shows even grey fade.

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.
