History of TUDOR Chronographs

Post by koimaster » May 31st 2020, 11:07am

Let us start at the very beginning of the history of TUDOR. Almost 100 years ago, Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf decided to pursue a new enterprise. As many watch aficionados will be able to quote, he determined to create a watch ‘at a more modest price’ than its Rolex siblings, while being able to ‘attain the standard of dependability for which Rolex is famous’. It was this that led to TUDOR watch company being born in 1926. Initially registered under a watch dealer named ‘Veuve de Philippe Hüther’, the brand was transferred to Wilsdorf in 1936. By 1946 it had been officially launched as a company specialising in models for men and women alike.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
