In February 1926, the house of “Veuve de Philippe Hüther”, a watch dealer and maker, registered the trademark “The Tudor” established in Geneva for Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf. Later, in 1936, the house transferred the brand to Wilsdorf. Just after the Second World War, Hans Wilsdorf knew that the time had come to expand and give the brand a proper identity of its own. On 6 March 1946, he created “Montres TUDOR S.A.”, specialising in models for both men and women. Rolex would guarantee the technical, aesthetic and functional characteristics, along with the distribution and after-sales service.
A TUDOR watch lives. Pulsates. It will take you into the world of micro-precision. The high technology in all components are relentlessly tested to the smallest detail… to the point of obsession. Examine the movement. Esthetics and performance fit for the most demanding of products, designed for endurance as much as pleasure. Pleasing to the eye and exciting to the mind, this precision mechanism will withstand the rigors of time. Exceptional materials, durability and strength of design make each watch a unique object.
With its elegantly sophisticated lines, the TUDOR Style borrows its aesthetic codes from classic watches of the 1950s to the 1970s. A union of performance and sensuality, this retro-chic watch for both men and woman is a perfect fit for all occasions.
A magnificent example of a tool watch and symbol of adventure, the Pelagos is one of the most complete traditional mechanical divers' watches available today. Waterproof to 500 m (1,640 ft), the Pelagos is fitted with TUDOR Manufacture Calibre. It is also available in a "left-handed" version.
With its integrated metal bracelet, notched or diamond-set bezel and automatic movement, the TUDOR Royal range is the epitome of versatile and affordable sport-chic.
TUDOR revisits the feminine Clair de Rose line in a refined and timeless manner. Introduced at Baselworld 2017, the new models are available exclusively in steel with mechanical movements.
A striking example of TUDOR’s trademark retro-chic style, the TUDOR Glamour line offers elegance and sophistication alongside a broad range of features. From the daintiest Glamour Date model, to the largest Date+Day and the Double Date models, the selection is exquisite and varied.
The Glamour Date+Day is distinguished by the elegant pairing of two handy functions. The day window at 12 o’clock spells out the day of the week in full, a feature available in a wide choice of languages. A small aperture at 3 o’clock displays the date.
The design of the Glamour Double Date model is the result of TUDOR’s attention to detail, for which it is renowned. The double bezel has a slight drop creating a characteristic relief and gently extends the curves of the polished steel case. The edges present an encompassing line. The angles they draw refine them and work together with the bezel to give the Glamour Double Date model a noble and refined look. The design is striking while remaining true to its function and to what TUDOR watches have become known for robustness, waterproofness and precision.
The Black Bay P01, is a watch based on a legendary prototype developed in the late 1960s and proposed to the US Navy, and in so doing lifts the veil on a little-known aspect of its history.
The TUDOR Heritage Chrono draws inspiration from some of the most emblematic models in the history of the brand. While retaining their original spirit, historic models are modernised with small, subtle touches and new technical features to optimise their performance.
TUDOR pays tribute to the brand's first divers' watches with the Black Bay Fifty-Eight, a model whose dimensions evoke that of the epoch. Fitted with a TUDOR Manufacture Caliber, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight is designed for slim wrists, people who like more compact watches and vintage enthusiasts alike.
Sixty years of TUDOR diving history distilled into one truly iconic watch. The Black Bay is powered by a mechanical movement manufactured by TUDOR.
The Black Bay Bronze is a 43 mm divers' watch inspired by the brand's naval history and fitted with the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre MT5601.
TUDOR has been producing watches that are closely tied to the world of motor sport since 1970, when the brand introduced its first chronograph. The Black Bay Chrono combines this heritage in a sport-chic chronograph, with contrasting sub-counters and a high-performance automatic Manufacture Calibre, with column wheel and vertical clutch.
The Black Bay line is the result of a subtle blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking. Far from simply being an identical re-release of a classic, each watch brings together over 60 years of TUDOR divers' watchmaking heritage while being resolutely anchored in the present.
TUDOR presents a new technical model with a whole new aesthetic. Named Black Bay Pro, it has a 39-millimetre diameter, a fixed steel bezel and a Manufacture Calibre with built-in GMT function.
With the 1926 line, TUDOR pays tribute to its early history with a range of mechanical watches that are timeless and elegant. A classic watch for women and men, the TUDOR 1926 comes in four sizes with a wide choice of dials.
TUDOR's famous Black Bay divers' watch is available with a GMT function that establishes local time without losing sight of the time in two other time zones. Fitted with the Manufacture Calibre MT5652, the Black Bay GMT sports a 24-hour graduated rotating bezel with two colours.
The Black Bay 31, 36, 39 and 41 S&G models bring a unique aesthetic to the Black Bay line. Their curved cases, highlighted with polished yellow gold sections, offer a language that departs slightly from the brand’s iconic tool watch spirit to embrace a sophisticated, versatile, unisex chic.
