The anticipation is killing me , I cant wait. Tudor officially makes its return back to the US in September 2013. Distribution will be tight and everything is in place for Tudor to not only Debut the brand but own the intro-luxury watch market.
There are a lot of watch brands out there in the three to five thousand dollar price range, but I have a feeling Tudor will swallow the competition and spit them out and dominate. At the end of the day, Tudor is a subsidiary brand of Rolex. With re-branding themselves and making a return to the US and having great products and price points, it will be very hard for the other brands to compete.
Those of you who are looking to get into the Rolex family and dont feel like spending ten grand or don’t have the means to do so at this time, you can rest assure that you have variety, quality and incredible styling with Tudor. I had a chance to play with most of the current collection, and let me tell you, I am very impressed.
One watch in particular that I need to own in the current Tudor collection is the Pelagos Divers watch in Titanium. This watch is very reminiscent of the Rolex Submariner. I am very impressed with the construction of the entire watch , from the 42 mm Titanium case, the black ceramic bezel, the titanium bracelet with folding clasp, safety catch and bracelet extension system, to the incredible simplicity of the iconic and timeless 3 handed black dial. Unlike Rolex, Tudor does not produce their movements in house, but they use the very robust and reliable ETA 2824 self-winding movement . This watch is water resistant to 500 m and has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. This watch is packaged with an additional rubber strap. The best part of this watch is the price, at $4,125, it’s going to be difficult to find another watch that comes close.
Like this watch, Tudor has done a stellar job with creating a very solid collection which I urge you all to take a close look here.
