THE CREATION OF THE BRAND
The watchmaker and merchant ''Veuve de Philippe Hüther'' filed the trademark ''The TUDOR'' in Geneva for Rolex creator Hans Wilsdorf, in February 1926. The house later changed its name to Wilsdorf in 1936. Hans Wilsdorf saw that the moment had arrived to extend the brand and give it its own individuality right after WWII. He created ''Montres TUDOR S.A.'' on March 6, 1946, which specialized in male and female models. Rolex would assure the technical, visual, and operational qualities, as well as distribution and after-sales care.

hans wilsdorf’s intuition
“For some years now, I have been considering the idea of making a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standard of dependability for which Rolex is famous. I decided to form a separate company, with the object of making and marketing this new watch. It is called the TUDOR watch company.”
- H. Wilsdorf
