Tudor Submariner Date

Tudor Submariner Date

Why We Love It

Tudor Subs offer a distinctive flavor of "The Same...But Completely Different!" 

We've long appreciated the subtle variations and the tremendous value proposition that Tudor offers when compared to their Rolex siblings.

This particular Reference 79090 dates to the circa 1992 and ticks all the neo-vintage boxes that are sure to be the next big thing. Puffy tritium luminous material with a beautiful even patins, a folded link bracelet with Tudor-signed clasp, and crisp case with classic Submariner proportions.

If you're a fan of classic matte dial sports Rolex and are looking for a condition and value, this is it!

The Tudor Story

Although it started as Rolex’s gateway brand, the quality of Tudor’s products are by no means inferior to Rolex’s.

Tudors were in many ways Rolexes in all but name, with the same waterproof Oyster cases and similar styling. However, in order to keep costs down, Tudor used off the shelf Swiss movements rather than their own in-house calibres. What resulted were watches that were more affordable than Rolexes to the consumer, but still uniformly tough and reliable.

Hans Wilsdorf created Tudor for the everyman, for miners, construction workers and every sort of tradesman. Rolex was meant for the explorer and the businessman, where Tudor was to be a different creature entirely. For your everyday person Rolex was, and often still is out of reach.

But in creating Tudor, Wilsdorf wanted to offer “a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standards of dependability for which Rolex is famous."

Today Tudor has certainly defeated any impression of being the redheaded stepchild of the Rolex family, and their current timepiece collection – as well as their vintage counterparts – are getting the recognition and respect they most rightfully deserve.
