Tudor Glamour Date
Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
In the past 10 years, Tudor has been 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.
This particular watch, a 36mm Glamour Date, is finished in two-tone yellow gold and stainless steel and features a glossy black dial, a date window at 3:00 and a matching two-tone multi-link steel bracelet with a signed deployant clasp.
Somewhat of a contemporary take on Tudors earlier 'Prince' line of watches, the Glamour collection offers a versatile, daily wearable, and robust line of timepieces to suit nearly any occasion and a range of wrist sizes.
The case is in virtually unworn condition showing only faint wear from careful handling. Gloss black dial is in as-new condition with applied indices and matching luminous handset. Signed crown.
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.
