The Tudor trademark was first registered in 1926 by Swiss watchmaking company “Veuve de Philippe Hüther” on behalf of Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex watches. Wilsdorf took it over himself in 1936 and went on to found the company Montres Tudor SA in 1946.

Points of Mention
This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Tudor box or Tudor paperwork. The watch comes paired with its original gold-tone and stainless steel bracelet with its original Tudor signed clasp, the bracelet total length is 22cm. The watch is from Circa. 1994 and is in worn, vintage condition, but overall very good as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
Whilst on the smaller size anyone who has worn an oyster case will know they wear larger than their mm size, this wears beautifully on the wrist, especially if you are comfortable wearing a smaller-sized watch. The dial is incredible with its linen texture and the mix of yellow gold and stainless steel, an amazing option for a great price.
