Tudor Oyster Manual Wind

Tudor Oyster Manual Wind

In the last few years, Tudor has become a household name in the watch community. Long the proverbial "little brother" to Rolex, Tudor was often overlooked by collectors and enthusiasts. But since the brand re-entered the U.S. market a few years ago, they've worked to define themselves anew, and they definitely have our attention. 

With growing focus on Tudor's new models, many enterprising collectors have started turning back to older offerings from the brand, securing a historic part of the evolving Tudor story.

Of these, the sports models like the "Monte Carlo" chronograph and the Submariner might perhaps be the most desirable. But there's great value to be found in their Oyster line. With the same sturdy Rolex Oyster cases as the sports models, these watches have sleek styling all their own. 

Featuring many of the same parts as their Rolex cousins but fitted with ETA movements, these models present a great value to collectors of any level and we're happy to see them getting their due.

This Oyster is a pearl in and of itself. Dating from the 1960s, it comes with a full kit: box, hang tag, even a case back sticker, and papers that date to the time of purchase in the 1990s. At the time, it was common for Rolex and Tudor employees to buy dead stock from the company, and it looks like this was one of those pieces.

Clearly an object of value, the original owner treasured it. Though he wore it, it's still in stunning condition, with only the slightest hints that it's ever seen the light of day. Lovingly preserved, it's a truly elegant timepiece that will be an ornament to any collection.
