About Tudor Prince Oysterdate
The Tudor Prince Oysterdate is a vintage watch with a prestigious heritage. Born into the Rolex empire in the 1940s, the Tudor Rolex brand was an homage to its British roots. Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex wanted to honour the historical English Tudor period and the Tudor Prince Oysterdate was born. Tudor watches, like all Rolex watches are masculine, timeless and elegant. They are crafted from a combination of stainless steel and yellow gold, usually in two tone colours.
In the beginning all Rolex watches were manual but over time the Rolex Tudors made the change to automatic. As the design developed, they also adopted solid bracelets with ergonomic clasps. Now Rolex Tudors are known for having a technical edge over many other watches. This is perhaps why the brand is often connected to sport. It has been connected to motor sports for over 50 years. Given that many Rolex watches are hermetically sealed for up to 50 metres below the sea, they are also a good choice for divers and fans of watersports. These are the watches that were used by the submariners in the French Navy.
Given their sporting associations, Tudor watches have been given a high profile by the sporting celebrities who wear them. Tiger Woods was one such celebrity, as are those involved in the World Endurance Championship, an exciting date on the motor racing calendar. When the Tiger Woods model was released, it arrived in a variety of colours, which led to the brand expanding the colour range of their dials. Today, these vintage models are highly collectable and sought after.
