1956 Tudor Oyster (Ref. 7934) White Chapter Ring Dial
The Rolex/Tudor relationship dates back to 1926 when Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex SA, wanted to create a more affordable wristwatch alternative that still maintained a high quality of craftsmanship. Tudor manufactured wristwatches adjacent to Rolex for many years, which featured more affordable non-inhouse Swiss movements, whilst still utilizing Rolex's case designs and manufacturing processes. Even though Tudor shares a lot of similarities with its older brother Rolex, Tudor's designs tended to differentiate from the Rolex formula to make for some uniquely cool timepieces that stand on their own as true collector's pieces.
