TUDOR Prince Oysterdate 1960s
Here we have a Tudor Prince Oysterdate, a wonderful example of an elegant and classic timepiece. Tudor is a subcompany of Rolex. When the Tudor Oyster Prince was launched in the 1950s, founder Hans Wilsdorf (who also founded Rolex) intended the watch to be worn by the everyman. The watch was ment to be a real toolwatch, so it was quickly seen on wrists of workers all over the globe. The watch also saw real-world experience in the harsh environs of the Arctic, with the British North Greenland Expedition, drawing the “extreme admiration” of the men who wore them. Tudor as a subbrand of Rolex used a lot of different Rolex-parts. This beautiful WRISTCLASSIC comes with an unpolished case in great condition. Dating to the 1960s this classic model measures 34 mm. The crown is original with the appropriate “Rolex” logo. Despite its age this WRISTCLASSIC is keeping time well. The watch comes with the original Rolex Oyster Bracelet (557/78350). The dial is allover in clean condition, wearing the small rose as the Tudor-Logo. The lume is all original and the dots have aged in a pleasing way. It is a splendid model inside and out, so be ready for the constant compliments sure to come your way. This is a great vintage timepiece perfect for everyday wear.
The brand Tudor is inseparably and historical linked with Rolex as its second brand. Mr. Hans Wilsdorf, founder of Rolex, wanted to combine a lower price segment and the high quality of Rolex. In 1926, the watch factory "Veuve de Philippe Hüther" registered the Tudor brand on behalf of Hans Wilsdorf. After relocating to Geneva, Wilsdorf acquired exclusive rights to use Tudor as a brand.
