Royal is a name first used by TUDOR in the 1950s to emphasise the superior quality of its watches. With this heritage in mind, the TUDOR Royal range offers self-winding sport-chic watches with integrated bracelets that are as affordable as they are uncompromising. Boasting first-class technical performance and a refined aesthetic, this line sits at the crossroads between classic and sports watches. It comes in stainless steel or gold and steel and is offered in four sizes with nine possible dials.

Since its founding in 1926, TUDOR has endeavoured to produce the best possible watches at the best possible price. This mission, bold then as it is now, is inspired by the vision of the brand’s founder Hans Wilsdorf. The inventor of several cornerstones of modern fine watchmaking – wristwatch precision, waterproofness and the self-winding mechanism – Wilsdorf dreamed of devising a watch that was technically perfect while remaining affordable, and so created the TUDOR brand to bring his dream alive. The TUDOR Royal range forms part of this uncompromising heritage, promising its future owner no less than the best possible quality at the best possible price.
Made in Switzerland from a block of one of the most robust stainless steels in existence, 316L steel, the case on the TUDOR Royal models is waterproof in all circumstances and to 100 metres (330 feet) below sea level thanks to its screw-down crown and case-back. The movement – the pinnacle of Swiss watchmaking expertise – is finely decorated despite not being visible and is adjusted to the highest chronometry standards in the watchmaking industry. Finally, the smooth and seamless “five-link” metal bracelet stands out thanks to the quality of its design, manufacturing and finish. All these things and more come together to produce the famous TUDOR quality, a philosophy summarised by the brand’s signature, #BornToDare – always striving to do better.
SPORT-CHIC WATCH WITH INTEGRATED BRACELET
The TUDOR Royal range is the ultimate in balance, elegance and versatility. The characteristic notched bezel, with its alternating surface polish and cut grooves, is just one of the design details that give the Royal its unique personality. With its integrated metal bracelet ensuring an uninterrupted line with the case, TUDOR Royal embodies fluidity and unmistakable style. Characterised by its three wide satin-brushed links set between two slimmer polished elements, the smooth quality of its surfaces and edges emphasises the importance that TUDOR places on ensuring its comfort on the wrist. Available in stainless steel or with alternating links in stainless steel and yellow gold, the meticulous finishes of the models in this range cater to every taste.
Available in four sizes, the TUDOR Royal is designed to fit any wrist. The 41-mm version is particularly distinctive as its mechanical movement displays the day at the same time as the date. The 28-mm version features a mother-of-pearl dial with a diamond-set bezel.
SPORT-CHIC WATCH WITH REFINED DIALS
The TUDOR Royal range has adopted the sunray motif for its dials. Available in black, silver, champagne-colour or blue, the sunray motif radiates from the centre of the dial, creating elegant lighting effects and reflections that accentuate the chic character of the Royal. The range is completed by a diamond-set mother-of-pearl version for the smallest diameter. For a final touch of chic, TUDOR has added applied Roman numeral hour markers to its TUDOR Royal watches. All dials offer these applied numerals, which can be replaced by eight diamond-set hour markers.
