Tudor has blown the doors off the 3-5k price point in the watch industry since their triumphant return in 2013. They have made it fun, cool and somewhat accessible to collect watches and amass a collection that has relevancy.
In my opinion, the models from their heritage are some of the most amazing watches out there! It’s cool to see their modern day interpretation of these pieces and how they come to life today. If you look at the official Tudor website, they have an amazing section on the history of their models from the past. You can read more about that here.
One of the models I wish they would make or reinterpret is the Tudor Oyster Prince Submariner “Left Hand” ref#94010 pictured above. This was produced in 1981 and was a special order placed by a left- handed officer-instructor within the Marine nationale. The particular arrangement of the crown of this watch did not have a different dedicated reference number. All the other characteristics for this reference remained unchanged. The strap shown above here was not produced by Tudor.
This is the first time I have ever seen a left handed watch from Rolex or Tudor. It’s really unique and interesting. Since Rolex made Panerai watches from 1936-1956 it totally reminds me of that and I can see the inspiration even though it was a one of a kind special order piece. If they make it one day I wonder if it will be in a Pelagos or Black Bay case? The dial is that of a Pelagos with snow flake hands. Who knows? Only time will tell. Either way it will be a sought after piece that will be a must have!
