The Reference

The Rolex Day-Date is for many the ultimate sign of success. First sold in 1956, the Day-Date is essentially a souped-up version of the Datejust, available only in precious metals (Only a handful were ever made in stainless steel, and exceedingly rare and valuable). If you have always wanted a Day-Date but aren’t into wearing bricks of gold on your wrist or the associated price there is a much lesser known watch that offers all of Day-Date experience in a much more wearable stainless steel case and at a fraction of the price. Enter the Tudor Oyster Prince Day-Date. Tudor is the entry-level Rolex brand and that is exactly what this watch represents and the caseback and crown are even signed Rolex.

The Case and Bracelet

The 36mm stainless steel case and bracelet are in very good condition. Many Tudor Day-Date models were produced in 38mm but are glad to see this in the traditional Rolex size of 36mm. The bezel is engine turned rather than fluted and gives the watch a more casual vibe than its Rolex counterpart. The crown and caseback are both correct for the watch and are both signed Rolex. The jubilee bracelet is in matching condition and features a Tudor signed deployant clasp and 596 signed endlinks.

The Dial and Hands

This blue linen dial is in very good condition. The layout is classic with the date window at 3 o’clock and the day window situated between 11 and 1. The day disk on this particular example is in Spanish which would indicate that it was originally sold in a Spanish speaking market. There is a little bit of color loss to the left of the date window that should be noted and all of the lume is showing very nicely.
