The Watch

Here we have a rare and unpolished 1990 Tudor Prince-Quartz Oysterdate Integrated 84100 Box & Papers with a 34mm stainless steel Oyster case that curves over your wrist towards tapered drilled lugs, and a lug-to-lug length of 40.5mm and a case thickness of just 9.5mm ensure a comfortable fit. Crisp unpolished lines transition across the case for that perfect profile, on the right side is a signed screw-down crown. A bevel-edged smooth bezel holds an acrylic crystal above a silver dial, an outer minute track surrounds applied steel baton indexes marking the hours, and at 3 o’clock a date window with cyclops magnification on the crystal, slender baton hands filled with lume are complemented by a tapered second hand, at 12 o’clock we have the Tudor shield motif, “Tudor Prince-Quartz” printed underneath and at 6 o’clock “OysterDate” complete this striking dress watch. On the reverse, a screw-down coin-edged case back, inside a quality Tudor Quartz. The watch comes paired with its 20mm Tudor integrated brushed stainless steel bracelet with a signed folding clasp, and this watch is sold with an original Tudor box, swing tag and paperwork.


Personal Note

I had never seen or even heard of this Tudor Prince-Quartz Oysterdate reference 84100 before getting this one on my desk, and then to top it off it is in unpolished condition with the most perfect and clean tritium dial and hands and also comes with its box and paperwork! Gems like this appear every once in a while, I have no idea when another one will appear with me, that is the beauty of watches!


The Brand

The Tudor trademark was first registered in 1926 by the Swiss watchmaking company “Veuve de Philippe Hüther” on behalf of Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex watches, Wilsdorf took it over himself in 1936. 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 proper identity of its own. The Tudor Rose started to appear on their dials from this time, thus, on 6 March 1946, he created the “Montres TUDOR S.A.” company, specialising in models for both men and women. Rolex guarantees the technical, aesthetic and functional characteristics, along with the distribution and after-sales service. In 1948 we saw the first Tudor-specific advertising, a few years later they introduced the TUDOR Oyster Prince in 1952, Hans Wilsdorf allowed Tudor to use their waterproof Oyster case and the original self-winding Perpetual ’rotor’ movement. This was an exclusive arrangement that benefitted both brands, development soon commenced with the introduction of the TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner, reference 7922 in 1954, this watch was quickly adopted by the French Navy in 1956. Building on its reputation of robustness in 1961 the Rose was replaced by the shield. Later in 1969, we saw the design changes in Ref. 7016 where for the first time square indexes and angular hands nicknamed “Snowflake” allowed for a more significant amount of lume to be applied; this was appreciated by the divers of the French Navy. Today these innovations can be seen in the Black Bay and Pelagos collections. In 1971 Tudor introduced the Oysterdate chronographs nicknamed “Monte-Carlo” due to their resembling a roulette wheel. Celebrating their 50th anniversary in 1996. In that same year, Tudor decided to shed Rolex-signed components such as the cases, crowns and bracelets in favour of Tudor-branded ones. Today Tudor uses their in-house movements developed initially in 2015 in collaboration with Breitling.
