    Re: Tudor - Oyster sussex - Information

    Welcome to the forum.

    I believe that Tudor transitioned away from using the shield logo starting in the late 1940s, so I would guess that your watch is from the late 40s, or perhaps very early 50s. Other than that, it's difficult to say much from that single blurry photo.

    For better information, please post more and better photos that show the watch in high resolution, in focus, with good lighting, from all angles, including the inside. There are some tips in the sticky threads that explain the forum guidelines.

    Definitely no apology is necessary, you didn't break any rules. But the sticky threads give good advice about including photos and more details.

    Don't use Rolex s/n's to date the watch. Tudor never kept s/n's to date, so you just go by the look etc. Dan is right. Late 40's to early 50's

    Can't read what it says around the small seconds chapter, so not sure on caliber

    "SHOCK RESISTING", I believe. But don't hold me to that.

    Re: Tudor - Oyster sussex - Information.

    Now this enquiry led me down an interesting path regarding vintage Tudor Oyster .
    Seems they were produced mid/late 40’s and named after various counties in Britain and distributed throughout the Commonwealth. I have seen Sussex,Devon and Kent to date some with fancy lugs.
