Today, Tudor is the only remaining second brand from Rolex and its 100% subsidiary, as well as being an independent manufacturer of wristwatches. This speaks for the classic aesthetics and robustness and technology of the brand.
In 1926 the brand was registered by the watch factory "Veuve de Philippe Hüther" and has been part of the Rolex family since 1936. Since then, all Tudor collections have been manufactured under Rolex quality control. The strategy is obviously to offer Rolex quality at a lower price. Hans Wilsdorf, founder of Rolex and buyer of Tudor, formulated the idea as follows:
“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.”
Therefore, the Tudor watches from the time of this model look very similar to the Rolex models, as Rolex design and technology are built in.
Today's logo with lettering and coat of arms was not introduced until 1969. By then, from 1936 onwards, the Tudor rose was the company logo, featured on the dial. This rose and the brand name were based on the symbol for England, where the Tudor rose can still be seen in the coat of arms of the United Kingdom and in the coat of arms of Canada. The idea was to emphasize the special robustness and elegance of the brand.
In the “Famous fans of the brand” section: In 1952, Tudor provided the crew of the British North Greenland expedition with 26 “Oyster Prince” watches as a promotional measure. A model that stood for 100 meters water resistance with the automatic movement. In the second half of the 20th century, the Marine Nationale Francaise and the United States Navy Seals used Tudor watches for their divers, but the special resilience in continuous use was also advertised with mine and construction workers.
