The History Of Ladies TUDOR Watches
Since the TUDOR watch legacy first begun back in 1926, TUDOR has always offered beautifully designed accessibly priced women’s watches. The styles of the TUDOR women’s watches have always been considered very Art Deco, era.many of the models were noticed for their delicate features such as engravings and gem settings. The watches retained their versatile look with cases that were rectangular and barrel shaped - a style very in line with the fashions of that era.
The 1940s saw Tudor introduce waterproof cases to the timepieces; something that was very unheard of at the time. Watches of cutting edge technology and incredible quality designed for a “vigorous lifestyle” started being advertised towards women.
In the 1970s a lot more focus was placed on sporting activities, including a campaign featuring a female water ski champion. The watch used was a Princess Oysterdate which is a waterproof, self-winding model - known for its robustness, performance and elegance. A few years before this, TUDOR presented its first divers’ watch which was dedicated exclusively to women. This watch was known as the Princess Date Submariner and featured a compact diameter as well as a dial inspired by the famous “Snowflake” design which is the aesthetic signature of TUDOR divers’ watches.
