About this watch

This all-original 1960 Rolex Tudor Oyster-Prince features waterproof Oyster case stamped ‘Rolex’, crown bearing Rolex logo, ETA movement with self-winding mechanism, and professionally refinished dial sporting the Tudor rose trademark (a shield was used later). The only replacement here is a new crocodile band. A little history: Tudor, a sister brand to Rolex, was launched by Hans Wilsdorf in 1949. Viewed historically as a more affordable alternative to Rolex, the marque still managed to exhibit the high quality expected of the original. Indeed, during the golden era when the Tudor Oyster-Prince was launched in 1952, the watch was seen as a direct parallel to the Rolex-branded Oyster Perpetual – even featuring that Rolex branding on the crown and case – and the two marques appeared alongside each other in advertising etc. However, compared with a Rolex Oyster Perpetual of the same vintage, this exemplary timepiece represents exceptional value.
