Tudor Brief History:

Tudor Watches was founded in 1926 when the house of Veuve de Philippe Huther registered the name in Geneva, Switzerland, on behalf of Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex. Wilsdorf reacquired the brand in 1936 and formed Montres Tudor S.A. a decade later, in 1946. Tudor was founded as an entry-level brand to complement Rolex, with the goal of creating a more affordable watch but one that would preserve the Rolex reputation for quality. Today, Tudor is a sister company to the parent company Rolex, and these two companies are both owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation.

Tudor Serial Number Overview:

Tudor did not create an official list and resource of their serial numbers (Similar to most other luxury watch brands of the time), the serial numbers are very close estimated as provided by many guilds. Please review our Tudor watch selections.

Tudor used Rolex cases for its watches in its early conception and the serial number of Tudor watches are found in the same place as they would be found on a Rolex watch. They are engraved between the lugs at the 6 o’clock position engraved into the case. Which mean you need to remove the bracelet first.
For modern Tudor watch models, the H serial is produced in parallel with O and J serial. This means that the year of 2007 should correspond to H7 serial as well as the J1 serial.
