A Rose by any other name – Tudor Watches

image-4Founded in 1926, Tudor is the brainchild of well-known watchmaker, Hans Wilsdorf. Having first founded a little watch brand, you may have heard of called, Rolex. The TUDOR brand, often referred to as the little sibling of Rolex, offers the same unparalleled quality, assurance and dependability, sharing the technical prowess of its older sibling but at a more accessible price point.

After an absence of twelve years from the UK watch market, for this season the brand are particularly focusing on their Heritage range, which is distinguished by the creative process of the brand’s Style Workshop. Each piece takes inspiration from Tudor’s vast and historical archive, updated with modern design tweaks for the ultimate in nostalgic and new.

The aesthetic and function of each TUDOR piece is unique. For example, their specialist diving watch – The Pelagos – was created and developed in collaboration with a large panel of professional divers and regular frequenters of the 320-meter deep Geneva Lake. The iconic ‘Montecarlo’ Chronograph, on the other hand, originally dates back to the 70s, with the latest reinterpretation boasting a bidirectional bezel with a sapphire crystal.
