With the 1926 line, TUDOR pays tribute to its early history with a range of mechanical watches that are timeless and elegant. A classic watch for women and men, the TUDOR 1926 comes in four sizes, with a wide choice of dials. TUDOR presented a new dial, now in white, and a brown leather strap lined with rubber for additional comfort and enhanced durability.
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, the delicately embossed design harks back to TUDOR’s origins, in subtle contrast to the smooth minute scale. Offered in a choice of silver, opaline, white or black, these dials have applique 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 on 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.
Ever faithful to Swiss watchmaking traditions, and to the TUDOR collection as a whole, the models in the 1926 line are all 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 steel and gold, 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 all wrists sizes, with those who love beautiful things in mind. The case is made of steel, polished all over and waterproof to 100 metres (330 feet). All four case sizes are available with finishing touches in 4N rose gold that embellish the bezel and winding crown and highlight the dial details.
Since the brand’s creation by Hans Wilsdorf in 1926, in line with his vision of the ideal timepiece, TUDOR has been continuously creating watches that are as robust, durable, reliable and precise as possible. On the strength of this experience, and confident in the superior quality of its watches, TUDOR offers a five-year guarantee for all products sold from 1 January 2020 onwards. This guarantee does not require the watch to be registered or submitted to periodic checks and is transferable. All TUDOR products purchased between 1 July 2018 and 31 December 2019 will benefit from an 18-month guarantee extension, therefore a total of three and a half years. TUDOR also recommends having its watches serviced approximately every 10 years, depending on the model and daily use.
