About this watch
This all-original 1958 Tudor OysterDate ref. 7960 features waterproof oyster case, crown bearing Rolex logo, Tudor manually wound calibre 2402 movement, original dial, applied steel triangular hour markers, centre sweeping seconds. The only replacement here is a new strap. The original movement has been fully serviced and regulated, and the watch is working well.
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.
