In Watches & Wonders 2022, Tudor just released a new lineup with the BLACK BAY PRO and BLACK BAY GMT S&G. These watches are uncannily resembles the Rolex Explorer II ref. 1655 and the "Root-beer" GMT Master II respectively.
Some people love the more affordable entry level time pieces, while other hate that Tudor is copying the iconic Rolex. However, these has undoubtedly been a part of the Tudor DNA: creating a more affordable Rolex.
Currently, Tudor is its own brand that have been re-creating their identity with their characteristic "snowflake" hands and in-house movements. While taking aspects of Rolex vintage design, they still produces quality pieces that are more fun and attainable than the inaccessible Rolex nowadays.
I say they are the new and cooler "Rolex" in town and I will be following their progression closely!
