Turdo is owned by Rolex and more affordable than a comparable Rolex. Choosing 'diet' as the adjective to describe that step down is controversial, but there is a step. Doesn't mean they're not good.
That Blue Stole me heart 💙Love both pieces. The blue on the Pelagos is brilliant
Yeah, its a diet Rolex. But like everyone over the last 50 years, Rolex needs a serious diet. Its become bloated in many ways.Tudor, is it a diet Rolex? Or is it its own brand with its own style, and history?
Where did that bracelet on the tudor come from? Love it!!!!Which is the better value?

Three things come to mind. First, Tudor has explored various metals for example silver, bronze and titanium (Rolex did their first titanium watch after the BB58 on the Deep Sea Challenge, which is a dumpster fire). Second, a display back in the BB 925. Third the Pelagos FDX with fixed lugs and the countdown bezel for the Marine NationaleWhat does Tudor do that Rolex doesn't, or can’t? is there a pic of a model you can share or comparison? Would be helpful as I’m trying to understand this divide between aficionados of both brands
Which watch components does Tudor SA actually manufacture? Every source I‘ve found, and there aren‘t many, focuses on the assembly and testing of the components. Heck, even the wording in the Instagram story I‘m seeing about the manufacturing of their hands indicates Tudor doesn‘t actually make them.I don't think this is correct. Tudor DOES manufacture some of their own parts and Tudor IS Kenissi. They created it and have just sold some stake to other companies who they'll share the movements with. If you can recall the first "in-house" Tudor movement appeared way before you even heard the name Kenissi.
Completely agree. I am always surprised at those who take their time to respond to posts on watchuseek only to add an overly negative, and often times degrading, comment or advise that a topic has already been discussed.What the hell was that all about, a bit harsh no?
Guy puts out a funny and not entirely unreasonable question, with out condemnation, yet this is the kind of response that is warranted?
Most try to get along on this forum, negativity just brings things down to a very base level. Lets leave that for the Rolexforums.
I’ll be sure to let you know when I start shopping around for a new editor.Gossamer, that’s a fancy word. You sound like a fancy guy with fancy taste. Lol. Btw I read your original post before you edited fragile to gossamer. I think fragile was fine.
