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 particular Tudor, an Oyster Prince Reference 7904, is an understated ‘do anything, take anywhere’ gem that works perfectly as an everyday watch.

Housed in a 34mm stainless steel Oyster case with ‘holey lugs,’ a Rolex-signed screw-down crown, a smooth polished steel bezel, and an acrylic crystal, it features a white Radium dial with applied gold-foil ‘Arabic’ and ‘dart’ indices, the beloved Tudor 'rose' logo at 12:00, and a matching ‘alpha’ handset.

Powered by an automatic Swiss movement from and fitted to a stainless steel 'rivet' Oyster bracelet, this beautiful piece from circa the mid-1950s looks as handsome today as it did in the decade of explosive economic growth and prosperity that followed the Second World War in America.

You can’t go wrong with such a well designed, handsome piece — especially in this condition.

Nab this affordable piece of the Rolex pie before anyone’s the wiser!

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.
