There is no doubt that TUDOR is one of the leading watchmakers of the last century. Established in 1926 by Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, TUDOR quickly rose to be recognised alongside its more historic Swiss counterparts including the iconic brands OMEGA and TAG Heuer.
TUDOR was formed to provide people with Rolex excellence at a more attainable price – and continues to do so to this day. The latest TUDOR watches still boast supreme sophistication in terms of design, as well as ultra-precise timekeeping that has been certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
Especially notable is the 70-hour power reserve feature of some of the most popular TUDOR watches including the Black Bay and Pelagos models. This makes the watch ‘weekend proof’ as you could remove it on Friday night and replace it on Monday morning without having to reset the watch.
TUDOR’s current collection of luxury watches ranges from retro-chic classic styles, ideal for everyday elegance, to models tailored to specific activities such as underwater adventure. Use this comprehensive guide to find your perfect TUDOR watch that is guaranteed to stand the test of time – whatever your lifestyle.
TUDOR sports watches
Anyone who prioritises function over style can enjoy the best of both worlds with TUDOR sports watches. Ground-breaking technology has seen these models perform perfectly in the most testing conditions.
TUDOR’s most iconic collection is the TUDOR Black Bay, with the new Black Bay 54 the result of a 60-year history developing diving watches. Utilised and acclaimed by Navies across the world, TUDOR Black Bay is the epitome of excellence when it comes to water resistance and high-performance in-house movement – with an esteemed heritage to match.
However, it is the TUDOR Pelagos that takes underwater adventure opportunities to a new level. Divers were front of mind for this design which includes an auto-adjustable bracelet which contracts or expands depending on the depth and pressure of the water. Other covetable unique features are the helium escape valve and luminous watch face discernible at great depths. TUDOR Pelagos is also waterproof to 500m – an astonishing feat!
If you are seeking a tool watch with unrivalled versatility, try the prestigious TUDOR Heritage Ranger. This model can be paired with straps in a variety of materials depending on your chosen activity. Waterproof to 100m and tested in environments as low as -40 degrees, the Heritage Ranger was designed to provide exceptional legibility in a variety of extreme conditions.
Classic TUDOR watches
There are many options to choose between when it comes to classic TUDOR watches, with the four main styles each having a host of variations. Each design holds old-fashioned distinction at its heart, ideal for those who steer clear of uber-modern models.
The TUDOR 1926, created to celebrate the year the brand began, has a vintage feel with a mechanical clockwork mechanism and domed dial. For those looking for a balance between a classic design and modern qualities, The TUDOR Glamour fits the bill. This suave timepiece works perfectly with sharp suits but is waterproof up to 100m.
For a watch that is more timeless than old-world, the TUDOR Clair de Rose is a popular option. Roman numerals on the dial help the watch to not date too quickly, while blue detailing provides a contemporary edge. Similarly enduring is the TUDOR Royal, undoubtedly one of the most luxurious models on offer. Some of the latest versions of the Royal include beautiful pearl and diamond detail.
