Price / Performance Appeal: Tudor Royal

Stylish, refined, accessible... New members of the Tudor Royal collection blend design and aesthetics at affordable prices.

Tudor is known for the watches it has produced in the price-performance equation since its establishment in 1926. The brand, which was born out of Hans Wilsdorf's effort to combine technical excellence with affordable price and puts its signature under the indispensables of today's watchmaking culture such as precision, water-resistance, and automatic movements, continues to keep the legacy alive with the Royal series.

Using the word "Royal" to emphasize the quality of its watches in the 1950s, Tudor greets the watch lovers with integrated bracelets, automatic movements, and a sport-chic design in the collection with the same name. Representing the combination of classic and sports watches, the Royal models, available in stainless steel and steel-gold versions, have nine possible dials and four different size options.


316L stainless steel cases with diameters of 41, 38, 34, and 28mm are resistant to water pressure up to 100 meters. The cases, in which glossy and matte surfaces are used together, are accompanied by notched bezels and winding crowns made of steel or 18K yellow gold.

The brand describes the new Royal series as "the essence of balance, elegance, and versatility". The models have a very fluid design with their bracelets integrated into the case. Combining glossy and satin-finished links, the bracelets are also available in two-tone.

The Royal series adapts the sunbeam pattern that we often see in luxury watches. Black, silver, champagne (Tudor calls champagne for this color, but I see gold), and this motif, which is reflected from the center to the ends on the blue dials, are among the particular elements that complement the overall design elegance. Models with 34 and 28mm diameters also have a mother-of-pearl dial with diamonds option. While the 41mm's dial displays the day and date, the others only offer the date function.

The self-winding movements beating inside the new models provide approximately 38 hours of power reserve when fully wound.
