THE BRAND IS BORN
The watch merchant and maker “Veuve de Philippe Hüther” registered the trademark “The TUDOR” established in Geneva for Rolex creator Hans Wilsdorf in February 1926. The mansion later changed the name to Wilsdorf in 1936. Hans Wilsdorf realized that the time had arrived to expand the brand and give it its own character shortly after WWII. He founded “Montres TUDOR S.A.” on March 6, 1946, specialized in men's and women's models. Rolex would ensure specialized, tasteful, and functional qualities, as well as distribution and after-sales support.

hans wilsdorf’s intuition
“For some years now, I have been considering the idea of making a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standard of dependability for which Rolex is famous. I decided to form a separate company, with the object of making and marketing this new watch. It is called the TUDOR watch company.”
- H. Wilsdorf
