  • Catalogue Essay

    The Tudor 'Home Plate' is very likely one of the most sought after Tudor chronographs on the market, and inspired the aesthetic of the contemporary Heritage Chronograph.

    First produced in 1971, reference 7032/0 was made for drivers during racing. The name 'Home Plate' is derived from the tritium hour markers that surround the dial. This early model was produced for a few years only, which makes the reference incredibly rare. This is a fantastic example with original pushers and an attractive dial. The luminous has aged over time to an attractive warm orange colour and the hands have aged to an ivory colour.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1926

    Almost twenty years after Rolex was founded, Hans Wilsdorf established Tudor with the intention of making more affordable watches without compromising the quality for which Rolex was renowned. Tudor was named after the British Dynasty that ruled England from 1485 to 1603, and their symbol came from the "War of Roses." After interchanging Rose and Shield symbols for a number of years, the firm replaced the Rose with the Shield logo from the 1960s until today.

    Some of the most recognized vintage models made by Tudor include the Submariner, a waterproof model first introduced in 1954, the Oysterdate, the earliest versions of which were nicknamed the "Monte-Carlo," the Heritage, which included the date at 6 o'clock, as well as the Pelagos, which translates to "deep sea" in Greek.
