Tudor Watches


Tudor was founded by Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex in 1926. A sister company to Rolex based in Geneva, Tudor was established with the idea of creating more accessible timepieces without compromising on the quality or dependability. The brand was named after the British Dynasty from 1485-1603, and the brand's rose and shields logo established in 1960 comes from the famed 'War of the Roses.'

Over the course of time, Tudor became known for its tool watches, with timpieces for professional divers and the military created from the mid 20th century onwards. Some of the most popular vintage models include the Oyster Prince, launched in 1952,  and the Submariner, launched in 1954.
