Why does Tudor have Rolex parts ?
The story of Tudor is an interesting one. Founded in 1946 by marketing genius Hans Wildof who was also the founder of big brother company Rolex some 40 years earlier. Hans would use 90% the same parts as a Rolex and substitute a fewer of the expensive materials / parts for cheaper ones that hardly affected the quality and reliability of his models. Upon creating the TUDOR company Hans was quoted :

"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 could attain the standards 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."

The idea of still producing highly reliable, quality and affordable timepieces certainly worked as the US Navy, French Navy and Israeli army (and many others) made sufficient orders from Tudor in the 1960s.

Background on this model

This watch has been dated back to 1968. The inside of the case is hallmarked 9 / 375 which is 9K Solid gold. The hallmark location is Edinburgh. This is a very early Shield model as previously Tudor has the Rose symbol on their wristwatches. Overall its a very nice and considering its its age a clean example. Naturally expect some imperfections as back case has the usual imperfections you see with a watch over 50 years old. The original dial is super clean. Please be advised vintage watches are smaller than today's standards. The case size is 32mm in diameter.

No offers. If you was to resale on in the near future we do not think you can lose money at this price. Prices will continue to soar in price as the years go by.

Overall a classy watch and in good working order.

The reasons why Tudor Ref 7934 watches are good to buy:

1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Usually buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%.
2. Exclusivity. Successful models such as the Black Bay range and the likes of David Beckham and Lady Gaga being brand ambassadors has only raised the profile to such heights that trying to buy certain Tudor models are only obtainable if you are on the waiting list for several years. In turn many people who seek to own a Tudor are looking upon the vintage market and the prices have increased in particular the last 6 months. We believe the vintage Tudor market will continue to be strong in the years to come.
