Product Description
TUDOR  

“The Tudor”, a trademark registered in Geneva in February 1926 by Hans Wilsdorf at the house of “Veuve de Philippe Hüther”, a watchmaker and watch dealer. Hans Wilsdorf acquired the exclusive usage rights from the dealer. “For some years now, I have been considering the idea of making a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standard of dependability for which Rolex is famous. I decided to form a separate company, with the object of making and marketing this new watch. It is called the TUDOR watch company.” - H. Wilsdorf.

Vintage Tudor-signed watches included models for both men and women; they were mainly rectangular, barrel-shaped or with beveled sides. The first watches show a simple TUDOR name/logo on the dial, with the horizontal bar of the T lengthened above the other letters. Also, at the first, some pieces show the name Rolex on the dial. Rolex would effectively guarantee the technical and aesthetic quality of Tudor watches until the brand attained autonomy in this field.

On 15 October 1936, the house of “Veuve de Philippe Hüther” transferred the brand “The Tudor” to Hans Wilsdorf. In this same period, the rose of the TUDOR dynasty appeared on the dials. Inscribed within a shield, this logo symbolized the invincible union of strength – the watch’s robustness – with grace – the beauty of its lines.

On 6 March 1946, with the vision to expand and give the brand a proper identity of its own, Hans Wilsdorf created the “Montres Tudor S.A.” company, specializing in watches with models for both men and women. Rolex would guarantee the technical, aesthetic and functional characteristics, along with the distribution and after-sales service.

In 1954, TUDOR set out on a new path which would contribute to forging its legend. It was in that year that the brand’s first divers’ watch, the TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner. Designed from its origin to fulfil exceptional criteria of durability, reliability, precision and waterproofness at a moderate price, it quickly positioned itself as an instrument of choice for professionals. Over the next 45 years this original tool-watch continuously evolved to ever better meet the specific requirements of the many types of divers who were clients of the brand.

Prince was the presence of an automatic movement and was Tudor’s equivalent of Rolex’s Perpetual. Prince automatic movements were modified by Tudor but, based on the Fleurier caliber 390. “They were — and are — one of the most robust movements one could imagine; bulletproof almost!”

Vintage watches are traditionally smaller than today's watches. Men's watches typically measure between 29-36mm (some larger, some smaller) wide excluding the crown. In the listing details we typically try to do our best to list all pertinent dimensions of a watch. If you don't see it, or we failed to do so, please reach out to us. Women's watches from the 1900s-1970s were also somewhat smaller than today’s offerings in many cases. Please also feel free to ask any questions you have pertaining to size. 

We prefer to shoot photographs outside when weather is permitting. However, when we shoot indoors, please be aware that we shoot our photographs inside of lightboxes that are lit with 360 LED bulbs. This indeed magnifies any flaws. Usually, they are much less obvious to the naked eye. Having said that, we never photoshop any of our photography, remove blemishes, etc. We adjust light, when necessary, but what you see is what you are getting, and we take pride in that. 

The condition is pre-owned. 
The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. 
See all the photos, feel free to ask questions if you have any. 

It will be carefully packed.
