Tudor Oyster Ref. 7934 - Big Rose Dial
Rolex, we have a problem.
The Tudor brand was born out of a problem that Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf had: It is much easier to mass-produce high-quality Rolex Oyster cases, than it is to produce the handmade and assembled Rolex movements. His brilliant solution, use ebauche calibre's (off the shelf mass produced swiss movements from ETA, Valjoux, etc.) and pair them with his high-quality cases from Rolex. This would allow those cases to be used, and be able to offer a very high quality product at a much lower price-point.
The present watch, the Tudor Oyster Ref. 7934 is the purest form of that early Tudor DNA. Still utilizing the applied Tudor Rose Logo, which was found on all early Tudors til the 1960s, it uses a Rolex Oyster case, with a manually wound base ETA supplied calibre. These types of watches exude pure vintage charm as the dial has aged to a slight cream color, with its mid-century cross hair dial and arrowhead indices. Even the Alpha Style handset and radum lume have all aged to a perfect cream color. This may only be 34mm, but this watch punches far above its weight and is a true piece of early Tudor Watch history.
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
