Accessible Elegance: TUDOR 1926 Collection

Accesible Elegance

The new TUDOR 1926 collection introduces a range of casually elegant and affordable watches for both men and women.

Ever since its recent rebirth into the US market just five years ago, TUDOR has delighted fans with a successful lineup of robust and reliable watches like the Black Bay, North Flag and Pelagos. The missing element has been an accessible and elegant mechanical timepiece that expertly blends traditional aesthetics and modern watchmaking. At Baselworld this year, that watch was introduced to the world—the TUDOR 1926—named after the year the TUDOR brand was created by Rolex Founder Hans Wilsdorf. Available in four sizes with a wide choice of dials, the range epitomizes TUDOR’s philosophy—one of affordability, refinement, and quality.


Exemplifying its universal appeal, the TUDOR 1926 is available in four case sizes: 41mm, 39mm, 36mm, and 28mm. The polished steel cases are waterproof to 100 meters, and all four sizes are available with finishing touches in rose gold. With this wide array of possible styles, sizes and dial colors, nearly anyone can find the perfect version to suit their personal tastes.

Much more than a mere accessory, the bracelet is an integral part of the aesthetic of a timepiece. The TUDOR 1926 features a refined bracelet with a combination of satin-brushed and polished finishes that enhance the elegance of the watch. Designed for flexibility and strength, the seven-link bracelet is meticulously assembled to closely follow the curve of the wrist. This new collection was designed for women as well as men to suit wrists both big and small.


TUDOR has an impressively rich heritage, and the new 1926 family includes a number of classic design elements. Nowhere is this more evident than on the dial itself. TUDOR offers a choice of dial colors featuring either smoothly polished or the embossed “waffle” pattern that was adopted from their earliest history. With its subtle doming effect on the dial, applied numerals, and stylish sword-shaped hands, the 1926 models have a real classic feel. There are even diamond markers available for those that seek to add some sparkle. The wealth of detail in the dials create a striking and intricate play of light that perfectly complements the sword-shaped hands.

When TUDOR was first conceived, Hans Wilsdorf intended to create a more accessible, lower cost alternative to the high-end luxury of its parent company. Over the many years since their introduction, TUDOR has been constantly innovating, drawing inspiration from their heritage and perpetually moving forward with modern designs and cutting-edge technology. They continually impress with their quality, gaining enthusiasts and watch aficionados along the way. The 1926 collection captures that very essence of the brand, paying tribute with a range of refined and understated watches that exude mechanical excellence with enduring sophistication.
