The history of the Tudor brand goes back to 1946 when it was officially opened by the founder of the Rolex brand, Hans Wilsdorf. The main objective of this novel brand was to manufacture high-end watches at the best prices without losing any of its traditional and functional features. The Tudor Rose signed on the dial of Tudor watches is the hereditary symbol of England; originating from the Tudor dynasty.
However, towards the end of the 1960s, Tudor decided to replace the Rose sign with the Shield sign. In its early days, Tudor had the support of Rolex, taking advantage of its direct link to Rolex for the purpose of enhancing sales, but it was not long before it acquired its own global recognition.
