BIRTH OF THE BRAND
In February 1926, Hans Wilsdorf had the trademark “The Tudor” registered and started making watches bearing that signature on the dial. Just after the Second World War, Hans Wilsdorf knew that the time had come to expand and give the brand a proper identity of its own. On 6 March 1946, he created “Montres TUDOR S.A.”, specialising in models for both men and women. Rolex would guarantee the technical, aesthetic and functional characteristics, along with the distribution and after-sales service.
Schroll Kitzbühel is pleased to be part of the network of official distributors of the Tudor brand. Being authorized Rolex and Tudor workshops, they offer these peerless masterpieces of Swiss horologery the proper admiration and attention by providing a wide range of services which are carried out in no time thanks to spare parts always being in stock.

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

A TUDOR watch lives. Pulsates. It will take you into the world of micro-precision. The high technology in all components are relentlessly tested to the smallest detail… to the point of obsession. Exceptional materials, durability and strength of design make each watch a unique object.
