  • Catalogue Essay

    The Advisor ref. 7926 was introduced in 1957 and was produced until 1969, and it was Tudor’s first and only alarm watch. As a direct response to the sought after models such as the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox, the Advisor presented something unique and exciting to the consumer.

    Unlike its competitors, the Advisor counted on a pin affixed to the inside of the case back, upon which a hammer struck, striking the sound of the alarm. This particular example of the Advisor has a silvered dial that exudes late-50s design on the wrist. The cal. 1475 movement is housed in a 36mm Oyster case — the same size as the Rolex Datejust of the period, making it extremely stylish and wearable.

  • 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.
