Established in 1946, Tudor is a subsidiary of the Rolex Watch Company, with the brand serving to provide timepieces with the dependability and reliability of a Rolex, at a more affordable price. Historically, Tudor watches were equipped with off-the-shelf movements, allowing for faster production times. However, since 2015, the brand has started to produce timepieces with its own in-house movements.Today, some of the brand's best-known models include the Tudor Pelagos and Tudor Heritage Black Bay, both of which are divers' watches launched in 2012. The Tudor Advisor, has a history dating back to 1957 and remains the only timepiece in the entire Rolex family to feature an alarm function.
Tudor Heritage Black Bay
With the Heritage Black Bay, Tudor have designed a watch which takes inspiration from models created as far back as the 1950s, squeezing more than 60 years' worth of diving heritage into the timepiece. Visually, the watch is defined by its round case shape, dome-shaped dial and large winding crown, while it also features the brand's trademark 'snowflake' angular hands. The Heritage Black Bay is constructed from polished steel, is water resistant at depths of up to 200 metres and is powered by an in-house MT5602 movement, which is certified by the COSC. Thanks to its blend of vintage design and modern technology, your Heritage Black Bay offers the best of both worlds and is a highly reliable timepiece.
The Tudor Pelagos is a divers' watch, which is perhaps best described an homage to the Rolex Submariner, albeit with a more affordable entry price. Visually, the Pelagos is primarily defined by its round case shape, with a uni-directional rotatable bezel, while the watch also features the brand's distinctive 'snowflake' hour hand, offering excellent legibility. All of the timepieces in this collection guarantee water resistance at depths of up to 500 metres and each model is fitted with a helium escape valve, protecting it from overpressure. Watches in the Pelagos collection are also equipped with a highly accurate self-winding mechanical movement, manufactured in-house.
