Why We Love it

Why We Love It 

It is no secret that the popularity of the Tudor brand is reaching stratospheric levels as of late. After decades of neglect by collectors, Rolex's sibling brand has caught on in an epic fashion.

Vintage Tudor timepieces have similarly "caught on" and many nearly-forgotten wristwatches have been pulled from sock drawers and brought back into the well-deserved limelight. While the greatest attention is being paid to the sports models such as the Snowflake Submariner and Monte Carlo Chronographs, there are also a number of superb casual and formal dress pieces being "found" and brought back to life.

This Tudor Oyster is an understated "do anything, take anywhere" gem that comes with an accessible price tag. It features a beautifully patinated cream dial with gold-tone dart indices and dauphine hands. The stainless steel Oyster case is a svelte 34mm, making it perfect to slip under the cuff of a dress shirt or wear casually on the weekends.

All in all, it's hard to go wrong with Tudor - rock solid movements and iconic designs add up to a tremendous value proposition that are stunning and timeless, to boot.

The Story

Hans Wilsdorf created Tudor for the everyman, for miners, construction workers and every sort of tradesman. Rolex was meant for the explorer and the businessman, where Tudor was to be a different creature entirely. For your everyday person Rolex was, and often still is out of reach.

But 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."

He achieved this affordability in an innovative way. Essentially, Tudors were Rolexes in all but name, with the same waterproof Oyster cases and similar styling. However, in order to keep costs down, Tudor used generic Swiss movements made by ETA rather than Rolex’s own in-house calibres. 

What resulted were watches that were more affordable than Rolexes to the consumer, but still uniformly tough and reliable.

Though vintage fans first flocked to the sports models such as the Monte Carlo or the Submariner, watches like this one prove that Tudor didn’t waste either style or substance on its other models.
