Tudor watches, we can’t forget about our timepieces, are in heavy demand while we focus a lot on gemstones & jewelry these days. In fact, we’ve been in business for 145 years and what started it all in 1871 was not just jewelry, but watch repair! Solomon Joseph was a certified railroad timer and worked on “railroad approved” pocket watches to be sure they were running on time. And when the 3:05 pm arrived, everyone’s watch said 3:05 pm. The rest is history.
One particular watch brand that also is steeped in history is TUDOR, a watch company not only with a rich history, but one that focuses on fine craftsmanship and style. The Swiss brand was created by Hans Wilsdorf in 1926 and had its official launch in 1946.
You may also recognize the name Hans Wilsdorf from another premium watch brand – he founded Rolex in 1905. We think this quote from Hans himself sums up the TUDOR brand & its relationship with Rolex quite well:
“For some years now, I have been considering the idea of making a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standard of dependability for which Rolex is famous. I decided to form a separate company, with the object of making and marketing this new watch. It is called the Tudor watch company.”
Today’s watch styles from TUDOR are sleek and modern, yet offer a “retro-chic” design. They have the quality many people have come to recognize, but with an affordable entry price for a premium watch – which to us, is a win-win!
