Have you heard anything about Tudor? And even if you heard, then certainly refresh your knowledge of this brand.
TUDOR is a Swiss watchmaking brand that offers mechanical watches with sophisticated style, proven reliability and an unparalleled relationship between quality and price.
And so on March 6, 1946 Hans Wilsdorf, founder of Rolex, made the following statement: "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 day can be considered the official birthday of the watch brand Tudor.
Thanks to the technological success of the company, the Tudor watch were manufacturing for the Polar Research, as well as for the US Navy submarine fleet.
To prove the Tudors perfect efficiency in extreme conditions of stress and strain, Rolex devised a series of tests in which it was exposed to the arch-enemy of the ordinary self - winding watch, vibration.
In one, the Trial of Destruction, the Tudor, with its perfectly balanced “rotor” self-winding mechanism, was strapped to the wrist of a workman operating a pneumatic drill for a total of 30 hours. Despite this continuous shock treatment, the invincible Tudor emerged from the ordeal quite unharmed, its self-winding mechanism functioning as smoothly as ever.
Two famous Rolex - the waterproof Oyster case, which makes the watch permanently impervious tu dust, grit and all moisture, and the “rotor” self-winding mechanism, which keeps the movement fully wound - make the Tudor a miracle of precision.
If you aspirations are higher than your bank balance, go to your nearest Rolex jeweller. Ask to see the beautiful new Tudor Oyster Prince, in stainless steel with matching expanding bracelet.
Throughout their history, TUDOR watches have been chosen by the boldest adventurers on land, underwater and on ice, the world over. Today, the TUDOR collection includes emblematic models such as Black Bay, Pelagos and Style and since 2015 it has offered mechanical manufacture movements.
So the watches that were thought of, primarily as a watch of an elegant and slightly glamorous style, became watches of people and professionals whose occupations are regarded as dangerous.
And therefore the company motto for many years becomes such a slogan: "Prepared for Work. Designed for Elegance ».
So the conclusion suggests only one - a brand with a magnificent pedigree and rich history, but at the moment clearly undervalued.
