About

Montres Tudor SA was founded by one of the most important figures in horology’s history, Mr Hans Wilsdorf; the gentleman who was also responsible for founding another goliath of the watch-making world – Rolex. Tudor is considered one of the most innovative of all modern wristwatch brands with new uses of materials (the all ceramic Black Shield) and interesting movement complications (the Heritage Advisor).

As the backdrop to all of this is a rich history of which Tudor is rightly proud, celebrated through the hugely successful Heritage watches. The Tudor Heritage releases have been an annual highlight at Baselworld since the Heritage Chronograph (based on the legendary Tudor ‘Homeplate’ Chronograph from 1971) was launched in 2010. The infamous Oyster watches started to appear in 1946 and in 1952 the ‘Oyster Prince’ was introduced (Prince signifying the automatic movement – Tudor’s version of ‘Perpetual’).

Tudor is perhaps best known for two models – the Submariners and the chronographs. The Submariner falls into the bracket of what we call a tool watch, due to its professional application for divers…a tool of their trade. Tudor has always had its own unique character, a style like no other Swiss watch brand, and it is testament to this enduring style that their watches are as relevant and innovative today as they were in the 1950s.

This Day-Date is a classic vintage design. The case is large at 37mm and the sunburst dial is distinctive. Enquire for more details and additional photographs.
