Tudor Oysterdate Chronograph: The Watch With Armour, circa 1980s

Tudor Oysterdate Chronograph: The Watch With Armour, circa 1980s


Vintage Tudor has never been more popular and their 'Big Block' chronograph is one of the most desirable models. During the 1980s, Tudor was still playing off the historical Tudor name and this advert with a steel gauntlet shows this perfectly. It's a catchy tag line and a very memorable image, a impressive steel tool watch next to a steel piece of armor. This ad may be small, but it is mighty as any full grown Knight.

For centuries, man has gone into battle protected by his own craftsmen-built armour. Armoured protection against the rigours of the 1980s is provided by the Tudor range of watches. 

Every Tudor watch has one of the strongest, most secure watch-cases in the world. It is carved from a single block of stainless steel. It has no seams, no weaknesses. It provides impregnable armour for the self-winding Tudor movement locked in its vault of steel.

You will find Tudor watches at authorized Rolex jewelers. 

These framed adverts can only be shipped in the continental United States. Apologies to you overseas watch fans but I'm working on other solutions!
