Pre-Owned Tudor 39mm 1926, Black Dial, Stainless Steel & 18k Rose Gold Bracelet, Ref. M91551

With the 1926 line, TUDOR pays tribute to its early history with a range of mechanical watches that are timeless and elegant. Named after the year that the TUDOR brand was created by Rolex Founder Hans Wilsdorf, the timeless and elegant TUDOR 1926 line captures the essence of the brand, reflecting a world of fine Swiss watchmaking where mechanical excellence goes hand-in-hand with enduring sophistication.

The Tudor 1926 M91551 combines elegance and functionality with a 39mm stainless steel case and an 18k rose gold bezel, adding a touch of luxury. Domed for a vintage touch and adorned at the centre, the delicately embossed design of the 1926’s dial is in subtle contrast with the smooth minute scale. Numeral appliques, arrow-shaped hour markers and sword-shaped hands offer a wealth of details that create an intricate play of light on the dials. This watch features a black embossed dial with rose gold hands and hour markers, along with a date reference for practicality. Powered by the self-winding T601 caliber movement, this watch ensures accurate timekeeping. It comes with a stainless steel and 18k rose gold bracelet, offering a stylish and comfortable fit for everyday wear. The original box is included, completing the package for watch enthusiasts.

Description

Since 1936 when Hans Wilsdorf acquired the Tudor name, Tudor watches have been associated with Rolex.  Even with the launch of Tudor as a separate company in 1946, Rolex continued to play a major role that reflected Hans Wilsdorf’s vision of a brand that would be more modestly priced than a Rolex but still maintain the high standard of dependability.  Tudor’s first models, such as the 1952 Oyster Prince had features unique to the Tudor brand but still were based on Rolex components, primarily the Oyster case.  This successful relationship continued with the Tudor Advisor alarm watch and the Tudor dive watch that was introduced only a few months after the introduction of the Rolex Submariner.

With the second generation of the Tudor dive watch, Tudor began to further define itself as a unique brand.  The French Navy requested a modification to enhance underwater legibility, which led to the now-iconic “snowflake” hands, with a larger square on the hour hand to easily distinguish it from the minute hand.  Also, the logo was changed from the previous Tudor Rose to the Tudor Shield that we recognize in a modern Tudor watch.  Around this same time, Tudor introduced its first chronograph named Oysterdate, which had a strong graphic and unique design, which still attracts fans with the modern reissued watch.

Near the beginning of the new century, Tudor ceased sales in the USA due to a lower demand.  When Tudor returned in 2013 with design elements from their historical models that also included larger cases, in-house movements and modern materials, watch aficionados embraced Hans Wilsdorf’s founding desire, to manufacture an affordable watch with high standards.   Tudor continues to be associated with Rolex, but with its own unique collections, Tudor has made a place of its own among watch enthusiasts.
