    Tudor Prince Oysterdate and Zodiac Glorious Manufacture dates

    Hello!

    I am new to this site and new to collecting vintage watches. I am reposting my query here on the vintage watch forum per another member's excellent suggestion, (I previously posted this on the Public Forum).

    I'm starting off my collection with two watches my father gave me and am trying to find the date of manufacture for each. The first one is a stainless steel Tudor Prince Oysterdate with the small Tudor rose logo. The back plate simply says "Oyster by Rolex" and has what I assume is the serial number, 243966, above another number, 7956. The Tudor Serial Number project doesn't list any Oysterdates with a 24xxxx serial number nor any Tudors made before 1959, which I am sure this watch was base upon when my father acquired it. That is the first picture attached.


    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    The second watch is a Zodiac Glorious in 10k gold and with the original gold and leather strap. I have no idea when this watch was made, my father never related how or when he acquired it.

    Hi and welcome.

    I have a hand winding Glorious https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/zod...us-364430.html

    Yours is really nice.

    I think they date from the 1950s. You might want to look at Vintage Zodiacs

    Actually, it was your watch that led me to this forum so I thank you!!!! Your watch is the closest in design to mine that I've found so far.

    Zodiac is very much a later 50s style. It was quite popular for a short time, with a lot of manufacturers offering a similar style. Looking at the age of the UG is most likely to get you a good date match.

    I have an Olma



    a Hafis



    And while it is not mine, UG did a polerouter in this style too.



    I like yours.
