The Tudor 1926 collection has taken us back to 1926 with its elegant dress watches for both men and women. Tudor watches tend to fight modern fashion and provide a more rugged yet formal touch. However, this general rule does not apply to the Tudor 1926 collection. Tudor 1926 watches are to pair up with a sharp suit.
A sister company of Rolex, Tudor is a Swiss watch manufacturer famous for its high-quality wristwatches. The founder built such a brand to provide watches with the quality close to Rolex, but at a lower price range. Its golden age was marked with the arrival of its Oyster and Oyster Prince, both launched in the 1950s.
Due to reasonable pricing, Tudor watches have attracted a wide range of customers. For years, Tudor has introduced some successful collections, including Oyster Prince Submariner, Tudor Black Bay, and the Fastrider Black Shield. And, with the release of Tudor 1926, the brand has once again amazed the crowd with their creativity and way of thinking outside the box.
The Tudor 1926 collection has nailed the essence of the new and the vintage and comes with a wide range of color combinations. Available colors of these watches include black, opaline, and silver with a polished and machine-stamped waffle pattern on the dial. The dial comes in 4 different sizes – 28mm, 36mm, 39mm, and 41mm.
The case without crown guards gives an ideal impression of a formal watch. There is also a date window display at the 3 o’clock position. The bracelet is made with 7 links that vary in size in a playful way. And to top it off, it is just comfortable to wear and is thin enough to effortlessly slide under the cuff. The Tudor 1926 watches are elegant and classy.
Now let us explore some of the Tudor 1926 watches:
If you are looking forward to getting a watch that goes with a formal look, Tudor 1926 offers watches that you can customize with diamonds. The diamonds you choose will replace those odd number hour markers.
