VINTAGE TUDOR WATCHES
In 1926, “The Tudor” was registered as a trademark by a watch dealer called 'Veuve de Philippe Hüther'. Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, took over “The Tudor” brand in 1936 with a desire to offer his retailers an alternative, more affordable range of watches to be sold alongside his legendary Rolex timepieces.
Over several decades, Tudor has become a specialist in producing high-quality watches that are both functional and stylish. Their most popular references include the Oyster Prince, Black Bay, and Prince Submariner. The Oyster Prince was introduced in 1952 and quickly became one of Tudor's most successful models. It featured a waterproof case that was similar to Rolex's Oyster case design. In recent years, Tudor has gained more recognition for its unique designs and exceptional quality while still being more affordable than its sister brand Rolex.
