History & Business
Tudor is a sister company of Rolex, and both of them are owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation. Tudor was launched with a vision to introduce affordable watches compared to the luxury watch brand Rolex. And, Veuve de Philippe Hüther registered the trademark “The Tudor” in February 1926 for Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf. After the Second World War in 1946, Hans Wilsdorf came up with “Montres TUDOR S.A.” that specialized in watches for both men and women. Tudor Oyster collection was launched in the 40s that featured the waterproof Oyster case. In 1952 came Tudor's self-winding model, the Prince. With time Tudor became popular as a manufacturer of tool watches for divers and the military.
Wilsdorf wanted to build the trust and reputation of the brand and therefore in the dials, Rolex was encrypted. For a small period, Tudor watches were not doing well but in 2009 the company did a major relaunch with new product lines. The company first came out with the Tudor Grantour Chronograph and the Tudor Glamour collection consisting of classic watches. Many more collections like the Heritage Chrono, Tudor Heritage Advisor alarm watch, the Fastrider Chronograph, and the Clair de Rose collection for women were launched. More collections included Heritage Black Bay and the Pelagos diver's watch. The company also launched the Tudor Style line of men's and women's dress watches apart from the North Flag collection and more.
Design and Features of Tudor Watches
The reasons behind the popularity of Tudor watches lie in the predominant features of these watches that are mentioned below:
- In house Mechanical Movements: One of the most outstanding features of Tudor watches is the in-house mechanical movements. These movements are offered by Tudor since 2015 with the launch of North Flag collection.
- Robustness: One of the key promises of the brand is to make watches that can withstand rough usage, shock and water. They have anti-shock feature, are highly water-resistant, and come with sapphire crystals. All these make Tudor watches a popular choice.
