Description

We are proud to present this classic Tudor vintage Oyster watch for sale.
Tudor was founded by the same man who founded Rolex – Hans Wilsdorf. The idea of Tudor was to offer the same build quality as a Rolex watch but at a lower price. The company would achieve this by using Rolex watch parts but equipping them with off-the-shelf movements rather than in-house calibres.
Thus, in the 1940’s Wilsdorf created the Tudor Oyster watch. In this case Oyster meaning dustproof and waterproof. Since the success of the Oyster in 1926 with Rolex it made sense to be able to offer this enhanced case durability to its sister brand, making them more desirable and better quality.
This Tudor reference 4453 comes set in a classic 31mm solid stainless steel case (31mm being the typical size of the period) with the classic Oyster screw-down crown. The dial is a silver colour and features a black chapter ring with minute markers and contrasting painted even Arabic numerals with a sub-second dial for the second hand. The hands are in the classic 40’s syringe style and the dial is protected by a domed acrylic plexi-glass. It is powered by the calibre 59 manual wind movement and comes fitted on a new replacement brown leather strap.
Originally purchased in circa 1940’s/50’s this Tudor Oyster comes with an original Tudor box of the correct time period and is under a 12-month warranty from SWC.
