15 years following the successful establishment of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf thought up one of his many brilliant ideas. He set out on establishing a watch with a lower price point that was comprised of the exact same quality as a luxury watch. The result: Wilsdorf registered the company name “Tudor”, reminiscent of the powerful Welsh royal family. Later, a symbol of the Tudor dynasty was established as the company logo – an elegant rose.

The Tudor brand has been identified as the daughter company of Rolex since its establishment. In the 1950s and 1960s, Tudor began to shy away from the Rolex name and began to establish its own brand identity. A number of successful brand campaigns showcased Tudor watches in different environments, further segregating the brand from its parent company. Tudor watches were considered robust and reliable timepieces that would not fail even under the most extreme circumstances.
