If we look closely, early traces of Tudor and its creations can be found as far back as 1926, the year the brand was registered by the Swiss watch-making company “Veuve de Philippe Hüther”, on behalf of Hans Wilsdorf. In 1936, Wilsdorf took it over himself, and went on to found the company Montres Tudor SA in 1946.
“For some years now I have been considering the idea of making a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standards of dependability for which Rolex is famous, I decided to form a separate company, with the object of making and marketing this new watch. It is called the Tudor Watch Company”
– Hans Wilsdorf
