About this watch

A good quality Tudor OysterDate with an attractive black dial and Rolex rivet  7.5 inches steel bracelet. A solid looking watch with applied baton markers and a reference on the watch face to it’s ‘shock-resisting’ qualities, it also features some really nice more intricate touches such as the Rolex crown symbol on the top of the manual winder, with Rolex referenced again on the back of the case. The rose of the Tudor dynasty, used to denote the Tudor brand, a sister brand to Rolex, can be found below the twelve ‘o’ clock mark on the watch face.

Reference 90120, it houses a 1156 calibre movement. This watch is sold in its original condition.

A little history:

The Tudor brand was transferred from the house of Veuve de Philippe Hüther to Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, in 1936, and it was at this time that the Tudor dynasty rose began to feature on watch faces, symbolising the invincible union of strength, ‘the watch’s robustness – with grace – the beauty of lines’ according to the official Tudor watch site. Hans Wilsdorf expanded and gave the brand an identity of its own beginning with the creation of the Montres Tudor S,A in 1946. The Tudor brand has subsequently gone on to be seen as a more affordable alternative to Rolex and has held its own high standard over the period of time.
