Tudor Oyster Princess History
While the Tudor Oyster Prince was released in 1952, the Tudor Oyster Princess was only released a few years later and early on marketed towards athletic women who practiced sports like horseback riding. It was a sports watch much like the Oyster Prince, which both featured waterproof 'Oyster' cases. In the 1970s, Tudor started to use figures like Leigh Hansen, the water skier, to promote the Tudor Oyster Princess. The 'Princess' name was used by many different Tudor models like the Princess Date Submariner. Today, the Tudor Oyster Princess is no longer but it is replaced in the Tudor catalogue by the likes of the Tudor Black Bay 32.
Tudor was founded in 1926 to be a more affordable sub-brand of Rolex. Early on it was very popular with brands like the Catanach known for their Art Deco style. Early Tudors also bore many Rolex symbols on them to reassure customers of their quality. In 1932 , he first Tudors were sold in Australia showcasing the small brands early global reach. Over the decades Tudor produced many models, notably the Oyster Prince and Princess released in the 1950s but also the Tudor Submariner and several popular Tudor chronographs. Today, the Tudor Black Bay 58 takes the place of models like the Tudor Submariner in its catalogue. And it continues to be a sub-brand of Rolex.
