The TUDOR journey began back in 1926, founded by distinguished Rolex creator, Hans Wilsdorf. TUDOR released their first watches in 1932 and to this day continue to provide premium timepieces as an obtainable luxury. TUDOR watches are without doubt timeless pieces, steeped in deep heritage and remain 100% Swiss Made.
At Prestons, we have been proud retailers of TUDOR for many years and now specialise in offering a wide range of pre-owned TUDOR models, which are located in our newly opened showroom, Prestons Leeds. Each and every pre-owned watch is thoroughly examined, and any necessary work is carried out by our accredited watchmaker or with the brands themselves. We are extremely confident in selling the best quality pre-owned watches, which is why every pre-owned watch is accompanied with a P36, a 36-month Prestons warranty.
We have an extensive and varied collection of pre-owned TUDOR watches available in our Leeds showroom to view in-store or online. This includes iconic models such as the North Flag, the Black Bay collection and the elegant Glamour and Style ranges.
The TUDOR North Flag is a magnificent example of how TUDOR watches are forged from unforgettable stories. In the days leading up to Baselworld 2015, there was a huge amount of speculation regarding the next big TUDOR release, but nobody could anticipate the North Flag. It was a ground-breaking watch collection for TUDOR, as it was one of the first to be powered by an in-house TUDOR calibre movement, in this case, the MT5621 with 70-hour power reserve. The TUDOR North Flag features a unique power reserve indicator displayed at 9 o’clock and it is the only collection to feature an exhibition case back, crafted from sapphire crystal. The North Flag’s origins come from The British North Greenland Expedition in early 1950’s which was based at a camp aptly named ‘North Ice’.
The TUDOR Heritage Black Bay is classic, favoured by many including David Beckham, featuring an in-house TUDOR calibre MT5602 and is now available in several iterations. We currently have an excellent selection of pre-owned models from the TUDOR Black Bay collection, including one of our favourites, the TUDOR Black Bay Dark.
This watch features a Black PVD coated 41mm case and bracelet, which gives it a stealthy jet-black look – a statement of class and sophistication. The unidirectional rotatable bezel also features a black PVD coating alongside a black aluminium bezel insert, juxtaposed with bright white numerals and hour markers for easy legibility. The crown, also in black, ensures 200m waterproofness when fully screwed down and features the quintessential TUDOR rose motif on the side. The enhanced power reserve of this model is approximately 70 hours, thanks to the MT5602 calibre it holds.
The TUDOR Glamour and TUDOR Style collections provide a wide range of case sizes from 26mm to a 42mm, various metal combinations and the option of diamond detailing. With so many variations available, they are the perfect choice for those looking for the perfect way to express their unique style. The TUDOR Glamour and TUDOR Style both feature variations on a classic 5-piece bracelet, with the former showcasing a smooth bezel and the latter a fluted bezel. Both watches are guaranteed waterproof to 100m due to their screw down crowns and like before, have the iconic TUDOR rose emblem sitting proudly on the side.
For those looking to mark a special occasion, many of these models can be chosen together to create the ultimate matching pair. A TUDOR Glamour Date would be the perfect choice to sit on her wrist next to his TUDOR Glamour Double Date, perhaps to celebrate an upcoming wedding anniversary or marking a special moment with a significant other.
Although usually associated closely with its older sibling, Rolex, TUDOR is a unique brand within its own right. A TUDOR wristwatch is a powerful and bold statement watch for those who are “Born to Dare”.
