Hello to you all. First, I would like to say that I was hesitant to open this thread after what happened with the same Rolex thread, but I am sure that with Tudor, it will be different. The thing is that the only time I saw a Tudor in the flesh in an AD, it was in the 80s, and I was shocked how cheap it looked. I couldn't believe that Rolex could be behind a brand that manufactures watches that looked like Rolex knockoffs with folded links and gold plating. I was told at that time by many watch enthusiasts that they were poor people's Rolexes. Never gave them a second look. Fast forward 2019, by joining WUS, I noticed to my surprise that Tudor and Rolex share the same section. Not only that, but from the posted pictures, they seem to have evolved into high quality watches and grown their own personality. My questions are the following: How did you perceive Tudor before, and how do you perceive it today? Do you still associate Tudor with Rolex? Do you consider it a high end watch? What are your likes/dislikes about the brand? The reason I opened this thread in the public section is to get unbiased opinions. Thank you for your input.
