Tudor Now Available at Feldmar Watch Company!

Today, we are beyond proud to announce that we are now an authorized retailer for legendary Swiss brand, Tudor. ­­­­

In the 1920s, Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf set out to create a watch that could be sold at a lower price point than Rolex, yet one that would retain the same dependability for which Rolex was known. A century later, Tudor continues to make reliable, great-looking watches that offer a truly exceptional value for the money.

In recent years, Tudor has become one of the most popular, well-respected Swiss watch brands in the world, and for good reason. The brand has developed a reputation for consistent stylistic and technical innovation, while also being mindful of its roots. While many of Tudor’s designs are inspired by its storied past, its pieces aren’t mere copies of vintage watches; they are better described as modern re-interpretations. Accordingly, Tudor’s overall aesthetic is classic yet fresh, and evocative rather than derivative. Most importantly, the brand has taken it upon itself to deliver watches of the utmost quality while remaining at an attractive price point.

Well-made and built for purpose

With Tudor, Feldmar customers can expect extremely well-made watches that are stylish, but also built for purpose. Most of Tudor’s pieces feature a classic, timeless design language, yet boast modern specifications, including contemporary materials and in many cases, chronometer-certified in-house movements. Tudor also prides itself on meticulous attention to detail, which is evident on each and every one of the products it offers. Even Tudor’s NATO straps are crafted with perfection in mind, using a production process that employs skilled artisans and large, century-old “shuttle loom” machines to ensure maximum comfort and durability.

Though I’m a huge fan of the entire Tudor line, if I had to pick a stand-out, it would be the newly released Black Bay Fifty-Eight in navy blue. I see the watch as a charming modern re-interpretation of one of their all-time classics – the Tudor “Snowflake,” which was introduced in 1969.

At 39 mm, the watch exudes a classic spirit, wearing much like a vintage diver would. However, it features an impressive chronometer-certified in-house movement with a silicon hairspring and 70 hours of power reserve. Thus, it is truly the best of both worlds – a “vintage” diver with top-of-the-line modern specs. Moreover, thanks to its conservative size, it can easily play the part of a dress watch. For those who prefer a more subtle aesthetic, the piece is also available with a black dial/bezel combo with rose gold “gilt” accents. For $3,700, there isn’t a better value, period.

Other notable timepieces in the Tudor family include:

Black Bay Chrono S&G

Tudor Black Bay Chrono S&G
The Black Bay Chrono features a chronometer-certified column wheel chronograph movement with 70 hours of power reserve and a silicon balance spring. With 200 meters of water resistance, this sporty-chic chrono is the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything timepiece.

Black Bay GMT

Tudor Black Bay GMT
A favorite among the collecting community and a great choice for frequent travelers, the Black Bay GMT features a matte burgundy and blue bidirectional bezel with a 24-hour scale, and a red “Snowflake” GMT hand. This piece boasts a chronometer-certified in-house movement, 200 meters of water resistance and a 41mm satin-brushed steel case.

Pelagos

Tudor Pelagos
With 500 meters of water resistance, a helium escape valve and a patented auto-adjustable spring mechanism that allows the bracelet to be adjusted mid-dive, the 42 mm Tudor Pelagos is a true professional-grade divers watch. This impressive piece is constructed out of Grade 2 titanium, which is extremely lightweight, durable and resistant to corrosion. For those who prefer to wear their watch on their right wrist, the Pelagos is also available in a “left-handed” version, which features a crown on the left side of the case.

Black Bay 32/36/41

Tudor Black Bay 32 36 41
This iteration of the Black Bay – available in 32, 36 and 41 mm – employs a “less is more” approach. The result is both sporty and elegant, making for a watch that is fit for any occasion. It features a workhorse ETA movement, “Snowflake” hands, and 150 meters of water resistance. It is available in steel and two-tone, with black, blue and champagne-colored dials.

1926

Like the Black Bay 32/36/41, the 1926 is a versatile watch that is available in a variety of sizes (28, 36, 39, and 41 mm) and finishes (stainless steel or two tone). Its design is defined by a domed and embossed dial, mirror-polished indices with alternating arabic numerals and a comfortable seven-link bracelet.

Tudor Royal

Tudor Royal
The newest addition to the Tudor Family, the Royal, features sharp angles and an integrated “five-link” metal bracelet. Its aesthetic is further enhanced by a notched bezel with alternating surface polish and cut grooves. Available in four sizes (28, 36, 39 and 41 mm), the new Royal range is the epitome of versatile sport-chic.

Feldmar and Tudor join forces

Feldmar Watch Company and Tudor are two 100-year-old brands coming together, both with steady beliefs in quality products and excellent service. Tudor’s collection has something for everyone; it is sure to deliver on the desires of our diverse clientele. While we look forward to introducing our long-standing clients to Tudor and all it has to offer, we also have no doubt that the brand will bring new watch collectors our way as well. In that regard, we expect it to be a symbiotic relationship!
