Tudor Watch Repairs and Services

Tudor Watch Repair UK

There are many signs of class and status available in the world. Some like fast cars, other’s fine clothes, while yet other’s believe that subtlety is key. Whatever an individual’s opinion on the matter, every single person can agree that a fine watch is something to be admired, enjoyed, and viewed appropriately. One such watch brand that will attract the eye of any casual admirer is Tudor, the little brother to the exceptionally well known Rolex watch company, one of the world’s premium and potentially most recognisable watch brands.

Founded on Marth 6th, 1946, Tudor have operated under the premise of being a brand that authorised Rolex dealers could sell that had the reliability and quality of a Rolex, but at a lower retail price. The idea was to corner a larger spectrum of the watch market, further cementing the hold that Rolex has on the watch production and watch repair industries. Needless to say, it worked well, with Rolex and Tudor both still in production today and being regarded as high end brands.

The Tudor watch brand is and always will be a product of the era of its conception. Developed long before the ostensibly-pretentious word “luxury” was attached to any one wristwatch, the Tudor brand was envisioned to fulfil a purpose: a dependable and accurate solution for those who wanted functionality over aesthetic.

Looking at the success of the Tudor watch brand, it is undeniable that the original concept has been successful. In 1952, when the British ministry sent a group of their scientists to Northernmost point of Greenland to re-establish the British interest in the poles, thirty Tudor wristwatches went with them. Later, in the 60s, when the US military needed a watch capable of diving to extreme pressures while maintain perfect accuracy, they settled on the Tudor Submarine. So did the French Marine Nationale, the Argentinian Navy, and the special forces of South Africa. When groups whose life rely on the dependability and capability of your watches choose them to use in daily operations, you know you have crafted a success.

The Timeline Of The Tudor Watch

1905 – Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law Alfred Davis found Wilsdorf & Davis in London. This will eventually become Rolex SA.

1946 – After much consideration and research on alternate brands, Wilsdorf founds the new watch brand “Tudor”.

1952 – Tudor launch their now-famous Oyster Prince, the line that would become ubiquitous with the Tudor brand name through the 20th century.

1954 – The launch of another Tudor icon, their dive watches. Launched in this year with the reference 7923, this was the first of a line that would set the bar for Tudor quality and reliability.

1968 – This year saw the first appearance of a motif that is not synonymous with the Tudor watches, and one of the most common areas on concern when it comes to Tudor watch repairs by their owners. This is, of course, the legendary Snowflake hour hand.

1970 – The advent of the so called “Quartz crisis”, which saw the introduction of quartz-based timing systems for watches. This threw the mechanical watch industry into upheaval. Tudor continue to produce mechanical watches, but do so at a lower rate and with far more stripped back designs.

2010 – The release of the Heritage Chronograph. Tudor usher in a new era in their watchmaking history, blending it’s right heritage with modern technology to produce watches that meet modern technical standards while still appealing to the clientele that love the watches that made the Tudor brand so distinctive for over half a century.

How To Keep Your Tudor Watch Away From A Watch Repair

All Tudor watch owners are careful with their timepieces, but accidents do happen. There are ways to mitigate or react that reduce or prevent damage that can cause the need for a Tudor watch repair or Tudor watch service, which are as follows:

  • Keep away from extreme temperatures. While these watches are designed to be hardy, there’s not point unnecessarily testing them. Sharp changes in temperature can cause condensation underneath the crystal, so try and avoid this.
  • Keep out of the sunlight. Much like it can to redheads, this can cause damage to a Tudor watch.
  • Avoid chemicals. Chemical products may corrode the water resistant gaskets and damage the aesthetic of your timepiece.
  • Sand and other particulate matter. Sand in particular has minerals which can scratch the sapphire crystal or steel bracelet of your Tudor watch, while other small particulate matter can find its way into the movement and disrupt the inner workings of the watch.
  • Avoid water. If you’re going to be near water, ensure the crown is fully pushed in and avoid the leather strap touching water as this may damage it. We offer Tudor watch strap replacementshould damage occur. We can offer Tudor crown replacement if there is any damaged sustained.
  • Gentle cleans. If you have any doubts about the water-resistance of your watch, simply clean it with a soft brush.
