Initially registered the trademark in 1926 by a Swiss watch company Veuve de Philippe Hüther, its very first timepiece was launched to the Australian market in 1932.
Taking the name to honor the prevailing Tudor Dynasty in England, the well-established brand Rolex’s founder Hans Wilsdorf took over the complete right of the “The Tudor” brand from company Veuve de Philippe Hüther. Until 1946, the early Tudor watches produced during that period were presented with the rose icon inside a shield that symbolizes the Tudor dynasty on their dials.
To build up the individual identity for “The Tudor” brand and expand its market, Hans Wilsdorf reworked the company logo and officially launched the Montres Tudor S.A. company in 1946. Since then, the watches produced from 1947 onwards started to remove the shield around the rose from the dial to simplify the logo.
Targeting a different market segment from its sister company Rolex, the Tudor brand has been emphasizing the durability and robustness of the Tudor watches. It is an alluring standout with such superb quality amongst the watches from the competitors in the same range. Sharing the same facilities and the oyster cases with Rolex, these Tudor vintage watches were highly apprised amongst watch collectors from all over the world.
Carrying the strength from its sibling Rolex, the brand launched the Tudor Oyster Prince Submariner, the first Tudor diver watch in 1954. With the famous Oyster case that Hans Wilsdorf invented, this Tudor Prince diving watch offered an exceptional water resistance with a sleek design exclusive for divers and water sports lovers. Consisting of precision, durability and practicality, the early Tudor diver models were regarded as a reliable tool for professional divers. Grounded by the initial success, the Tudor Oyster had undergone a number of revisions and updates to make it one of the best diver watches of that era.
Since the 1960s Tudor had started to serve the women’s market with its sophisticated designs. The Tudor watches for women are well crafted with a perfect blend of elegance and watchmaking traditions. On its robust and durable profile, the brand has always skillfully added a touch of grace for the ladies’ watches. Its famous Tudor Royal vintage watches for ladies were one of the inspirations for the Tudor Classic collection of the current watch family.
In 1970 the release of the Tudor Oysterdate chronograph gained overwhelming responses from the market and numerous variations followed in the next years due to its success. After its bloom with its renowned Tudor chronograph in the 1970s, the brand had stopped releasing new collections until the 1990s. In 2009 the brand initiated a major relaunch and introduced a series of vintage-inspired models in the following years to the market.
