Lot Essay

Accompanied by Tudor red leather presentation box.

The brand Tudor was introduced by Rolex around 1945 with the aim of supplying high quality watches at affordable prices. Although Rolex never advertised their connection to Tudor, they however supplied, amongst other parts, the Oyster cases and rotors. The symbol of the brand was the Tudor rose until around 1960 when it was replaced by the shield which is still in use to date. The line of models comprised also Submariner and Cosmograph watches considered as reliable and durable as their "big sisters". With their varied and colorful "exotic" dials, these watches have become extremely popular amongst collectors.

The present model, an icon of 1970s design, is one of the most sought after Tudor watches. Its rarity is further enhanced by its like new condition, the back still retaining the original sticker.
