Vintage Tudor Guides?

Hi all,

Iíve just recently gotten into vintage watches, and have been falling in love with the old vintage Tudor models with the rose - usually those dated pre 1960s and simple gents watches. I used the search tool on the forum as well as good olí Google, but there doesnít seem to be some sort of definitive guide to Tudor vintage watches. Iíd love to be directed to some guides that have information such as when Tudor switches from rose to shield, some reference numbers and popular models. There seem to be lots of info on vintage Rolex but not on Tudors. Been itching to get myself a vintage Tudor but not until I build some sort of wealth of information first

Be very careful. Lots of fake Tudors out there. Post pics on here before you buy. Look for orchi’s sticky article on legit shield Tudor subs.

The Tudors are definitely not as well documented and popular as Rolex, but there are some useful infos out there. Tudor collector website was very useful for me when i was searching on the Tudor Submariner infos.

Tudor themselves have since last year posted some history on their respective watches:

Thank you! I have looked into the Tudor watch website, but none have provided as much detail to unpopular releases. Iím looking in particular for various productions that arenít necessarily Oyster Prince - there tend to be more of those. For example, I came across this rather old Tudor that I canít seem to find reference for.

I stand corrected, but seems like this would be a watch from the 1950s.. hmm, give me a couple of days, maybe I could find something. Have a good weekend!

That's nice, I haven't seen that dial before, with Dustproof. Looks real, anyway. Late 40s-early 50s I would say.

Some of the gentlemen at a different forum pointed out that it has been most likely redialed, with hands replaced. At the price point I guess I would hold off on it, since it doesn't seem to be in a decent collectible condition.

Just reading the thread & thought you might like to see my old Tudor. I don't know the reference & have never taken the back off ,but it's 9k gold case & thought you might like to have another Tudor to reference against .
