Tudor watches are actually the “baby brand” of Rolex, having been originally created to be a more affordable option to the higher end Rolex’s. However, over the years, Tudor has developed a unique style and elegance and attracts a certain pedigree of consumer – just like its parent brand, resulting in it being considered one of the top luxury watch brands around the globe today. After all, if a watch can catch the attention of celebrities and A-listers such as David Beckham and Lady Gaga, there’s no question it has to offer something unique and special.
History of Tudor Watches
Based in Geneva, Tudor watches is a sub-brand of Rolex, originally registered in 1926 by Hans Wilsdorf, who is best known for founding Rolex SA. In the beginning, Tudor was positioned to be a more affordable alternative to Rolex watches. Today, Tudor and Rolex are sister companies, both owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation. During the decades between the 1960s and 1980, there were several navies issuing Tudor Submariners to divers, including the elite SEALs of the U.S. Navy, and the Marine Nationale, or French Navy.
What Makes Tudor Watches So Appealing?
As time has passed, Tudor watches have become more well-known for its tool watches, having produced watches for both military members and professional divers. Today the Tudor brand is still known for being “related” to Rolex, and this watch is sought after by those with exclusive taste, and who still want a precise, yet elegant timepiece.
Why Should You Buy Pre-Owned Tudor Watches?
Purchasing a Tudor watch will allow you to join the elite club of individuals who have exquisite taste and who appreciate the finer things in life. However, rather than buying new, which could result in immediate depreciation of your watch, consider buying used Tudor watches from WatchBox. This company keeps a wide array of vintage and newer model Tudor watches in stock, all in like-new condition. This provides you with the same quality watch, and the ability to purchase a timepiece that the U.S. Navy has used.
