Today's offering showcases this Tudor that we really love. It has an uncommon small rose dial that has large spaceship style markers.

If you are not especially acquainted with watches from Rolex's Tudor brand, creations which have become increasingly more collectible, here is a brief explanation of their relationship to Rolex. Watches in the Tudor line, apart from the fact that they utilize ebauche movements, are similar to those of Rolex in design and construction. 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.

One such watch from the Tudor line was the Oyster Prince Date. It resembled the Rolex Datejust, the company's most famous model. In its early days the Tudor Oyster Prince earned a name for itself as essentially a more affordable version of its sister watch. It possesses the same features and conception although and is slightly less bulky and more streamlined than its Rolex sibling.

The stainless steel Rolex Oyster case is in good honest original condition. The dial is just short of mint. And the automatic Tudor movement has been recently cleaned and oiled and is keeping very accurate time.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
