The Watch

Just after the second world war, Hans Wilsdorf, Founder of Rolex, knew that the time had come to expand and give the Tudor brand a true identity of its own. Thus, on 6 March 1946, he created the “Montres TUDOR S.A.” company, specialising in models for men and women. Rolex guaranteed the technical, aesthetic, and functional characteristics, along with the distribution and after-sales service.

In 1947 Tudor introduced the Oyster, their first waterproof watch, building on the success of the Rolex Oyster of the same period. In 1952, 26 Tudor Oyster Prince watches were included in the British scientific expedition to Greenland organised by the Royal Navy and sponsored by The Queen. This showed the world how robust Tudor Oyster watches were.
Here we have a 1965 Tudor Oysterdate Big Rose 7962 with a 34.5mm stainless steel Oyster case produced by Rolex. A lug to lug length of 41mm and a thickness of 8.5mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. A signed screwed-down crown with the Rolex crown on the right side—polished and brushed surfaces transition with crisp edges. The slim polished bezel holds a domed crystal above a silver dial. Applied bullet-shaped indexes mark the hours. At 3 o’clock, a framed date window with cyclops magnification on the crystal. Elegant dauphine hands are complemented by a tapered sweeping seconds hand. At 12 o’clock, we have the applied Tudor Big Rose with Tudor Oysterdate printed underneath. On the reverse, a coin-edged screw-down case back. Inside a Manually Wound ETA 2403. The watch comes fitted on a 19mm suede strap.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Tudor box or paperwork. The watch comes paired with a well-suited suede strap. The watch is from Circa. 1965 and is sold in worn, vintage condition, wear and age can be seen throughout the watch. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note


The Tudor Big Rose has always been a fan favourite and we can see why, these oyster cases really do wear larger than their dimensions would have you believe and with this model being manually wound it sits incredibly low to the wrist and is just perfect! The simplicity of the dial allows for a huge array of strap choices so don't be shy, throw an interesting colour on the watch and have fun!
