Why We Love it

When the Tudor Oyster Prince was introduced in the mid 1940s, it was meant to be a watch for the everyman. 

Contemporary ads showed these watches being subjected to a ‘Trial of Destruction,’ in which it was worn by a worker operating a jackhammer. Other advertisements drove that point home even further, showing a Tudor Prince on the wrists of construction workers and miners. In 1952, thirty Oyster Prince watches even found their way to the Arctic on the wrists of Captain J.D. Walker and his crew in the British North Greenland Expedition.

The Oyster Prince had certainly demonstrated its reliability, and the sheer variety of models that Tudor released over the years saw that it had a universal appeal. While there is certainly a preference for models from the 1950s and 1960s, the model’s longevity meant that, beyond being a watch for the everyman, there was a Prince for everybody.

This particular model is a Reference 74033 Prince Oysterdate dating to circa 1989. Housed in a 34mm stainless steel and yellow gold Oyster case with holey lugs, a magnified acrylic crystal, a signed crown, and a fluted yellow gold bezel, it features a handsome, champagne Tritium 'linen' dial with applied indices, a matching handset, and a date window at 3:00. Powered by an automatic ETA movement, it comes paired to a matching two-tone multi-link bracelet with a signed blade clasp.

Rugged, practical, and the perfect size for both men and women, the Tudor Prince Oysterdate is one of the most versatile designs in the Tudor back catalog.

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition overall showing signs of previous polishing and light wear from age and use. Champagne Tritium 'linen' dial with applied 'baton' indices is in excellent condition with matching handset. Rolex 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.
