    Is this unusual?

    To have such a small movement in a watch this size? The dial says Tudor Prince Oysterdate and movement says "Princess."

    Perfectly normal in this instance. My sister has a Tudor Princess Oysterdate which we know to be genuine, and that's exactly what it looks like inside. If you think that's small, try taking a peek inside some of today's monster-size watches. Little bitty movements with huge plastic or metal spacers.

    Why do you ask....do you suspect it might be fake?

    I'm not that knowledgeable about Tudor watches, but my Oris 44mm has a rotor that only spans half the case length. Most mass production movements are designed to fit small case dress watches and large case divers.
    I'm content with my watch collection

    It doesn't look like a fake but just curious because the dial says "Prince" and the movement says "Princess."

    What size is the case? Can you post a photo of the front of the watch?

    Thought so. Nice watch. These were also called Lady-Sub as well, so it's no surprise that it uses a women's size movement. No red flags for me, but you could find the movement number and do some research over in the Rolex Forum and elsewhere on the web to confirm (or not) that this movement is the correct caliber for that model.

    That explains it. At almost three feet across, everything except Stonehenge will look small in there.

    I know it's completely irrational, but I'd rather not know if my watch had a movement that looked like that.
