TUDOR pays tribute to its origins and watch-making traditions with its 1926 line, a range of mechanical watches that are timeless, classic and elegant.
The 1926 line is named after the year when “The Tudor” was registered as a brand on behalf of Rolex Founder Hans Wilsdorf. It captures TUDOR’s philosophy and continues down the very same path that it has trodden ever since its inception, emerging as a high-quality watch technically and aesthetically, with a level of sophistication that transcends any apparent limitations.
The dials of the 1926 model are a fine example of TUDOR’S thorough attention to detail. Domed for a vintage touch and adorned at the centre, their delicately embossed design harkens back to TUDOR’s origins, in subtle contrast to the smooth minute scale. Offered in a choice of silver, opaline or black, these dials have appliqued even-numbered Arabic numerals between faceted arrow shaped hour markers. There are also versions where the odd-numbered hour markers are set with diamonds. The wealth of detail of the dials of the 1926 line creates a striking and intricate play of light that perfectly complements the sword-shaped hands with their matching colours perfectly.
The 1926 line has a purpose made bracelet designed with comfort, refinement and quality in mind. Made up of seven links of varying size, it closely follows the curve of the wrist. Its external links are satin-brushed while those in the middle are polished – a variety of finish that enhances the elegant appearance of the watch. Meticulously assembled in accordance with TUDOR’s longstanding skill in the field, the bracelet is flexible as well as strong.
The 1926 line is fitted with self-winding mechanical movements that have proved to be robust and reliable. The traditional “ROTOR SELF-WINDING” marking on the dial is a direct reference to this characteristic. Finely decorated, with a 38-hour power reserve, they feature hours, minutes and seconds as well as the date in an aperture at 3 o’clock. Offered in steel or gold and steel, the 1926 line comes in four sizes – 28 mm, 36 mm, 39 mm and 41 mm.
It has been designed for women as well as men to suit wrists both big and small, with those who love beautiful things in mind. The case is made of steel, polished all over and waterproof to 100 metres (330 ft). All four case sizes are available with finishing touches in 4N rose gold which embellish the bezel and winding crown and highlight the dial details.
