PRESENTATION: THE TRUE GUIDE FOR THE TUDOR
The name Tudor was registered by the watchmaking company “Veuve de Philippe Hüther” in 1926. In 1936, Hans Wilsdorf takes the trade mark over himself, and founds the company “Montres Tudor SA” on March 6, 1946 in Geneva. Hans Wilsdorf’s great idea was to create watches with the world-renowned Rolex quality at a more accessible price, in order to gain alarger market share.
This book represents an indispensable guide to collect and invest in Tudor wristwatches, from 1936 until today.
