A word of warning to buyers of this watch. Do not buy it if the seller cannot show you the movement photo. Always look for pictures of the movement. As shown here this is 100% authentic Tudor.

Why does Tudor have Rolex parts ?
The story of Tudor is an interesting one. Founded in 1926 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

The Tudor Oyster ref 7974 is an affordable way into vintage watch collecting. The dial is rare and we believe the strap compliments this watch nicely. If you prefer an additional black or brown leather please let us know shortly after checkout and we will enclose for free.

Very nice condition. The movement is working perfectly, as you would expect from Tudor. The seconds hand sweeps around very nice. If you are using daily it will need to be wound once a day.

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. Please ensure you are comfortable with the size at 34mm - vintage Tudor (and Rolex) watches are smaller than today's standards.

Please expect minor imperfections as this is a used/vintage item. Study the photos as this naturally makes up part of the description.

This model has the Date display which for some is an essential useful tool to have on their vintage watch.

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.
