1965 Tudor Oyster Prince (Ref. 7995) Brushed Silver 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 in their own right.
