Tudor Oyster Prince 34

Tudor Oyster Prince 34

Why We Love It

Gilt and gorgeous—these words sum up the dial of this Tudor Oyster Prince 34.

Not only that, but it’s a textured dial, too. In the early years of the watchmaking industry, before mass-machining took effect, every component of a watch was constructed by hand, or milled on a hand-powered machine. Although this watch was made by machine, textured dials are still extremely complex to construct, and are often a sign that the dial has not been refinished.

Aside from that glorious gilt dial (with roulette date wheel), this particular Oyster Prince 34 possesses a strong case, which is the perfect size for daily wear.

The Story

In 1952, thirty Oyster Princes found their way to the Arctic on the wrists of Captain J.D. Walker and his crew in the British North Greenland Expedition. In the punishing conditions of the Arctic, the Oyster Prince demonstrated its reliability. Over the years, the sheer variety of models that Tudor released over the years saw that it had a universal appeal.

Of these, the Oyster Prince 34 is the most versatile.

Although the diameter might measure 34mm, the long lugs and beefy proportions of the Oyster case make it wear much larger. Sturdy and solid, it’s just the sort of watch that you can imagine on the wrist of an explorer. Whether dressed up on leather or dressed down on nylon, this watch has all the makings of a daily driver that you won’t ever want to take off.
