While most Tudors in vintage times had a similar "sister watch" in the Rolex line, the Advisor is a notable exception. This rare alarm watch was made only for Tudor.
Today's offering showcases a ref. 10050 Tudor Advisor. The 10500 was first introduced in 1969, and they only had Rolex bracelets until circa 1971. In 2011, Tudor revived the Advisor in its Heritage collection.
This special alarm is all original down to the dial, hands, crowns, and original Rolex Oyster rivet bracelet date stamped 1970. It is in very pleasing condition, and the case appears unpolished with crisp edges.
Several years ago our watchmaker cleaned and oiled the movement.
Included with the purchase is a 90-day international C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
It is part of the discerning collection that we are selling for a renowned pediatrician. It's a great looking and very scarce Tudor.
When Rolex launched the Tudor brand in 1945, they strongly intended that the public perception of its quality had to equal that of Rolex. To achieve this lofty aim, until the mid-1990's, Tudor watches featured Rolex cases and crowns, and, until 1971, Rolex bracelets.
