The Vintage Tudor Prince Oysterdate 7996/0 is a timeless masterpiece from 1969 that effortlessly captures the essence of elegance and functionality. This vintage Tudor includes several details that alone would make an interesting vintage watch, much less all combined in one watch.  The Tudor rose logo, stark white dial tone, red railroad dial and original steel bracelet make this an exceptional watch. Furthermore, the condition is great and it came from the original owner who received it as a graduation present. While Rolex may be more well known,  vintage Tudor watches offer unusual details that aren’t seen in their bigger brother.

Crafted in resilient stainless steel, this 34mm Prince model showcases an extraordinary railroad dial, a rarity cherished by collectors. Arabic numerals grace the beautiful white dial in both 12-hour and 24-hour formats, harmoniously fusing classic design with practicality. Driven by a self-winding mechanical movement, the Tudor Prince Oysterdate 7996/0 remains true to its heritage while delivering impeccable accuracy. Its stainless steel Oyster-style bracelet is often missing from a vintage watch and complements the watch’s distinguished presence. The folding Oyster clasp, adorned with the iconic Rolex crown, ensures a secure and comfortable fit for any wrist. Experience the allure of vintage horology with the Tudor Prince Oysterdate 7996/0, where every glance at the exquisite dial will brighten your day.

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.
