The Submariner is perhaps the single most recognisable watch today. From its start as a diver's tool watch and appearance on James Bond's wrist to being mentioned by numerous rap artists, the Submariner has never been one to shy away from the limelight. Rightfully so, as it has arguably become a design icon in addition to a horological one.
This Tudor is in excellent condition, with light marks on the case and bracelet. Comes with original box and instructions.
For most of its history, Tudor was seen as Rolex's little brother. Today, Tudor may still be part of the same family, but the little brother has now grown into a full-fledged watchmaking powerhouse in itself.
Tudor originated as a sub-brand for Rolex, using most of the same parts but equipped with a cheaper bought-in movement. For most of its existence, it closely followed Rolex's designs, producing Submariners , Day-Dates and Datejusts (called the Prince Date).
By the late 90s and early 2000s, Tudor had gained a reputation for being a 'poor man's Rolex'. However, this changed after the 2009 brand relaunch, where Tudor came out with distinctive new designs. After Rolex's switch to ceramic bezels for its sports models, Tudor stuck with its guns and began offering a new modernised dive watches in the form of the Pelagos and Black Bay. These new watches, combined with the 'warmer', retro-inspired aesthetic retained by Tudor, meant that it developed a distinct identity from Rolex.
