About this watch

This all-original 1984 Tudor OysterDate ref. 74000 features waterproof oyster case, crown bearing Rolex logo, Automatic ETA calibre 2824 movement, original white dial, centre sweeping seconds and original date disc. Tudor Rolex Oyster bracelet no. 7835b with folded links will fit a 7.5” wrist. The bracelet has some light stretch to it but that is to be expected.

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.
