Lot Essay

Accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Derek Dier. Further accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Ellen Freund, property master for Mad Men.

The present Tudor Oyster-Prince, nicknamed the “Tuxedo” by Derek Dier due to its black and silver color scheme, was worn by John Slattery as Roger Sterling on Mad Men. The watch is reminiscent of the famous Universal Polerouter designed by Gerald Genta in circa 1954.

Selected to be a classic watch for Roger Sterling to wear from the era, this Tudor is in stunning condition with a screw-down crown. It is one of the most visually striking time-only vintage Tudors we have ever seen.

The present Tudor is a remarkable opportunity to own a piece of television history.
