Whether you’re a vintage watch enthusiast, a lover of modern sports watches, or looking for a luxurious dress watch, there is a Tudor timepiece for you.

Boasting Rolex quality at more affordable prices, TUDOR has built its reputation for creating stylish, durable, and stunning designs. Chosen by the most daring adventurers, Tudor has launched some of the world’s most iconic contemporary collections of timepieces.

Although the brand was intended to be an affordable version of Rolex watches, Tudor has stepped out of its sister company’s shadow. Today, they have built their own reputation and are now highly coveted among watch enthusiasts.

 

One of the Tudor signature models is the Tudor Black Bay Chrono column-wheel chronograph. This watch model has won international awards and is considered one of the best horology has to offer. Other popular Tudor models include the Pelagos, North Flag, and Heritage Chrono Blue.

The Tudor watch company delivers top-notch craftsmanship and uses unparalleled precise movements.  Merging classic watch design with high-quality watchmaking practices, the brand continues to create exciting collections with a bold and distinctive character.

History of Tudor Watches

Founded in 1926 by Hans Wilsdorf, Tudor is known as the sister company of Rolex – the most famous luxury watch brand in the world. Wilsdorf’s goal from the beginning was for Tudor watches to be a more affordable alternative to Rolex watches. Throughout the 20th century, the two brands have intertwined history and Tudor continued to produce modest versions of the Rolex.

In 1932, the first Tudor timepieces made their appearance in the Australian market. The timepieces had a rectangular shape with beveled edges. Some of the models have the Rolex name along with Tudor on the dial to make a distinct connection.

In 1936, Hans Wilsdorf acquired “The Tudor” name from Veuve de Philippe Hüther and added the “Tudor Rose” inside a shield to the logo.

The company continued to gain momentum in the mid-20th century. In 1952, Tudor released the waterproof and automatic Tudor Oyster Prince. In 1955 , the Oyster Prince Submariner dive watch joined the catalog. In 1957, the Tudor Oyterthin soon followed.

 

During the brand’s 50th anniversary in 1966, the company decided to shed Rolex signed components in favor of Tudor branded ones. In 1970, Tudor expanded into chronographs by launching the Tudor Oysterdate Chronograph 7031. This model became the modern Heritage line.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the company stopped selling the brand’s timepieces in America – and other markets. In 2013, Tudor announced its return to the American market. This marked the company’s attempt to rebrand and redefine itself apart from Rolex.

Tudor continuously pushes itself to produce excellent luxury watches at a more modest price. Some of the most popular collections of the current Tudor lineup include the Black Bay, the Pelagos, the North Flag, and the Heritage.
