    Vintage tudor

    I picked up a group lot in a online auction recently and mixed in with the junk I found this.





    I think it's from the 30's but it's been recased into a I.D. watch case so I cant date it using the case number. I've checked the movement on ranftts site and it is a tudor 59 (fhf 30).

    Does anyone know how to date this without the case?

    What a nice surprise for you.

    The earliest Tudors only had the name in script - the rose in shield emblem was introduced c.1936. In 1947 the shield was dropped so that narrows it down a bit. Someone else may know more of course.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Hi
    We (or I) can only date it by the Tudor style logo
    The style on your watch was introduced in 1936 and stopped (for a different style) in 1947
    So between 1936 and 47

    Best I can do

    SORRY, Marrick beat me, but at least our info was same
