Tudor is the second brand that Hans Wilsdorf’s vision gave birth to, after Rolex. The brand was originally created to pay tribute to the Tudor period of England and to give people access to the durability and precision of a Rolex, at a lower price. As the popularity for Tudor watches grew, the brand separated from the bigger brother Rolex and became its own separate company. Tudor released their own version of the Submariner which quickly became one of their most popular models. These watches were also used by both French and US Navy divers.Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense. Long-term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. Size and weight may deviate from the manufacturer’s indication. All watches are hand-measured and weighed.
