Tudor watches are the slightly younger, lesser known sibling of the superstar brand Rolex. How many of us have suffered from having an older successful sibling, and people not knowing you are related, or what your own strengths and beauty may be.
Ironically, this is good for watch collectors, as it means you can own a great watch with the Rolex quality at a great price.
Tudor watches was created in 1946 by Hans Wilsdorf – 40 years after he founded Rolex.
“For some years now, I have been considering the idea of making a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standard of dependability for which Rolex is famous. I decided to form a separate company, with the object of making and marketing this new watch. It is called the Tudor watch company.” – H. Wilsdorf
