Vintage Tudors

Hi guys. Looking for some advice.

I have a 116710 and a 114300 and several vintage Omegas.

Iím thinking about maybe adding a vintage Tudor (oyster date maybe?) to my collection.

What should I be looking for? What models do you recommend?

In particular, Iím looking for something that will hold value nicely and that isnít too small.

The Date Day 38mm are nice. 7020 is a TOG bezel and the 7017 has a smooth bezel.

7020


7017

First, I think you need to decide on what size you are looking for.

Iíd recommend the Tudor Jumbo (ref 7024) very well sized at 38mm. Iíve wondered why rolex doesnít release a 38mm datejust


Hereís a size comparison of Tudor cases
34mm - 38mm - 41mm


And hereís another size comparison with some of our other watches
31mm - 34mm - 36mm - 38mm - 40mm

They're 34mm, little smaller but wear quite nicely. Might be looking to move one soon.

I would pick another brand as you are a little late on jumping in on vintage Tudors. There are many out there but the prices are reflective of the markets awareness of the brand. I think that vintage Omega's are where there is a real opportunity to find some cool pieces at reasonable prices. This excludes historically significant Speed Masters. You might look at some of the late 80's-90's Sea Masters as they can be had for a nice price. Another brand that is forgotten in the vintage market is Hamilton. They are cool watches and sell for a fraction of what the Tudors will and they have some cool designs. Good luck.

The 7020 Date Day is a very cool watch.

I would strongly suggest those vintage Tudor from 50s or 60s with small rose. They are my favorite!

Tudors are the best!
Personally recommend a tudor sub (Snowflake, 79090, 7016, 7928)
Tons of charm!

Tudor sub

IMG_6Jul2019at42743pm.jpg you canít go wrong with a Tudor sub obviously if money was no object you would probably like that dial to read Rolex but you get that same look for a fraction of the price plus as long as you love what you buy if it goes up in value even better.

My wife has a "Chrono-Time" from about 1977. I have seen the men's version in both blue and burgundy and they are beautiful. I love the unique integrated bracelet.

Nice looking Tudor you have there.

Have to agree that the integrated bracelet on the Tudor is unique and very nice to wear.

The integrated bracelet on my Ranger II.
