Why buy a Rolex when you can go for a Tudor Rolex?
In fact, Tudor was founded by the same man who founded Rolex – Hans Wilsdorf. The idea of Tudor was to offer the same built quality as a Rolex watch but at a lower price. The company would achieve this by using Rolex watch parts, but equipping them with off-the-shelf movements rather than in-house calibers.
In 1936 the iconic Tudor rose logo that is now loved and recognized by collectors and enthusiasts started appearing on the dials. The rose logo was originally inscribed within a shield, which is also a symbol that is strongly associated with Tudor today. The rose inside the shield was meant to symbolize the invincible union of strength – the watch’s robustness – with grace – the beauty of its lines.
In 1947, the Tudor logo evolved. A year after the official launch of TUDOR, the shield gradually disappeared from the logo. Now, the logo would only consist of the iconic Tudor rose with the Tudor name beneath it.
Our Tudor Oyster is an early bird from the 1950's, still with the beautiful rose in the shield.

This is a vintage watch for the true vintage watch enthusiast. It got the patented Oyster case in very good condition despite its age. Well preserved lugs and caseback. The chamfers is still visibale and sharp. The dial is factory original with the beautiful small rose and arabic numerals at even numbers. And, the best of all in our opinion is the blue original hands that change differnt colour of blue depending on the light - it's so beautiful! They may have been re-lumed at some point in the history of the watch but have now developed a brown-ish colour that matches the dial perfectly.
