    Please excuse my noobishness here... I know Tudor is a subsidiary brand of Rolex. But if the watch is branded Tudor, why does it have a Rolex crown? All the other Tudors I've seen have a crown with the Tudor rose on it... #inquiringmindsneedtoknow :thumbsup:

    Great question this is a Tudor watch from the late nineties and I think as far back as the fifties Rolex and Tudor have shared a lot of design features like cases and crowns which made these watches very similar in the way they look, because they were made by Rolex. It may have had to do with marketing to make the Tudor brand more appealing to the people that couldn't afford to buy a Rolex and by purchasing a Tudor you were still buying in to the Rolex brand. The main difference between these two brands were the quality of the movements they used in these watches, but today Tudor have moved away from the Rolex branding and are now made in there own right, netherless vintage Tudor watches have become just as collectable as some Rolex models. I'm sure there are forum members who have a greater knowledge and who can offer more information but I hope this helps.....

    On vacation in China with my family visiting my in-laws near Beijing. Totally soggy, rainy day today but we visited Tiananmen Square anyway. Thought it would be appropriate to wear the Seagull 1963 re-issue.

    I wore this during a pre-dawn trail run in the hills behind our home, then decided to keep it on for the rest of the day; it deserves more wrist time than it's been getting lately. From the oil platforms in the North Sea to the mean streets of L.A. -- quite a journey for this watch :)
