Tudor created a splash when it launched the Heritage Black Bay line in 2012 - a time when Rolex was quickly transitioning its sports models from the aluminium bezel to the shinier and more glamorous ceramic bezel. Tudor's dive watch is clearly inspired by the early vintage Submariners, with subtle nods such as the red triangle on the bezel or the rose gold hands and markers being reminiscent of the "gilt dial" era watches.
For most of its history, Tudor was seen as Rolex's little brother. Today, Tudor may still be part of the same family, but the little brother has now grown into a full-fledged watchmaking powerhouse in itself.
Tudor originated as a sub-brand for Rolex, using most of the same parts but equipped with a cheaper bought-in movement. For most of its existence, it closely followed Rolex's designs, producing Submariners , Day-Dates and Datejusts (called the Prince Date).
By the late 90s and early 2000s, Tudor had gained a reputation for being a "poor man's Rolex". However, this changed after the 2009 brand relaunch, where Tudor came out with distinctive new designs. After Rolex's switch to ceramic bezels for its sports models, Tudor stuck with its guns and began offering a new modernised dive watches in the form of the Pelagos and Black Bay. These new watches, combined with the "warmer", retro-inspired aesthetic retained by Tudor, meant that it developed a distinct identity from Rolex.
