INSIDE TUDOR

Birth Of The Brand

In February 1926, Hans Wilsdorf  had the trademark “The Tudor” registered and started making watches bearing that signature on the dial. Just after the Second World War, Hans Wilsdorf knew that the time had come to expand and give the brand a proper identity of its own. On 6 March 1946, he created “Montres TUDOR S.A.”, specialising in models for both men and women. Rolex would guarantee the technical, aesthetic and functional characteristics, along with the distribution and after-sales service. 

Tudor Collection

TUDOR CLAIR DE ROSE

The Clair de Rose line, reimagined in a classic, refined and timeless spirit, uses the brand’s historic aesthetic codes. The Clair de Rose collection is available exclusively in steel and in six configurations and three sizes, 26, 30 and 34 millimetres in diameter, it presents opaline dials with delicate decorations in relief, punctuated with blue lacquered Roman numerals or diamonds.

TUDOR ROYAL

The Black Bay celebrates 60 years of diving watches with extraordinary heritage. The iconic model inherits the general lines, as well as the domed dial and crystal from the first Tudor diving watches. It borrows the characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, from the watches delivered in large quantities to the French National Navy in the 1970s.

TUDOR PELAGOS

A magnificent example of a tool watch and symbol of adventure, the Pelagos is one of the most complete traditional mechanical divers’ watches available today. Waterproof to 500 m (1,640 ft), it is available in both left- and right-handed versions. In addition to its original matt black version, this model is also available in matt blue, the emblematic colour of the brand’s divers’ watches since the 1960s.

TUDOR CHRONO

Created at the crossroads of vintage and velocity, the Heritage Chrono is ingeniously inspired by the celebrated Tudor Oysterdate Chronograph of the early 1970s. All the lines of this storied timepiece have been mindfully reformulated to echo, with a contemporary spin, the exquisite contours of the coveted chronograph and of the racing cars at the historic, technical and aesthetic heart of its creation.

TUDOR 1926

Tudor pays tribute to its origins and watchmaking traditions with its 1926 line, a range of mechanical watches that are timeless, classic and elegant. Available in four sizes with a wide choice of dials, the 1926 line is named after the year when “The Tudor” was registered as a brand on behalf of Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf.

Tudor Manufacture

Superior watchmaking standards

The Tudor manufacture was officially inaugurated in March of 2023. Every Tudor watch is assembled and fully tested to Tudor's superior standards at the brand's new watch Manufacture located in Le Locle, Switzerland.

TUDOR HISTORY

Hans Wilsdorf’s intuition

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.

This early drive led him to become one of the most acclaimed, loved and successful players in the history of the game. With three major clubs and 115 selections in the English football team, 59 as captain, he left his mark: 6 England Championship titles, 2 Major League Soccer cups, one time Champion of Spain and one time UEFA Champion.
