  • Catalogue Essay

    The Tudor Prince OysterDate 72900 series was first introduced in 1995 featuring certain upgrades from its previous models such as a refined case design with softer lines, a new dial variation and most significantly a sapphire crystal with cyclopes lens. Furthermore, the new series is powered by the new Valjoux-based cal. 7750.

    The present example Tudor Prince Date ref. 79280P from circa 2000 belongs to one of the last examples produced when the reference was discontinued at the end of 2000. The present lot is complete with its original guarantee and fitted presentation box.

  • 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.
