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. First introduced in 1969 it saw the change from the Tudor Rose to the Applied Shield at 12 o’clock which represented the characteristics of reliability and solidity. The OysterDate became as popular as the Rolex Oyster models of the time.
