THE BRAND IS BORN
In February 1926, the house of “Veuve de Philippe Hüther”, a watch dealer and maker, registered the trademark “The TUDOR.” The brand was established in Geneva for Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf. A decade later, in 1936, the house transferred the brand to Wilsdorf. Following the Second World War, Hans Wilsdorf knew that the time had come to give the brand an identity uniquely its own. On March 6, 1946, Wilsdorf created “Montres TUDOR S.A.”, specializing in models for both men and women. Rolex would guarantee the technical, aesthetic, and functional characteristics, along with the distribution and after-sales service.

hans wilsdorf’s intuition
“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.”
- H. Wilsdorf
THE ART AND FINESSE OF HAND CRAFTSMANSHIP
A world of microprecision lives within every TUDOR watch. Precision is key. To reach perfection, the technology within each component is relentlessly tested to the most miniscule detail. Some call it an obsession, but to TUDOR, it is an uncompromising vision. Study the movement. Notice the delicate balance between aesthetics and performance fit for the most demanding of timepieces. This precision mechanism is built for endurance as much as pleasure, making it a product that will continue to astound throughout generations. Exceptional materials, durability, and strength of design make each watch a one-of-a-kind work of art.
