Tudor Prince Oysterdate

T&H REVIEWS


SOLD

The 1950’s may have been synonymous with classic, conservative America but watches like this Tudor give us an insight into what was really going on. It’s pure rebellious funk – from the sunburst pattern around the dial to the roulette date wheel – even numbers in red and odds in black – It has no special function, just flair.

Taking a step back: the vintage Tudor market is on fire, and rightfully so. It packs so much of the punch of its Rolex brethren, sometimes even more, at a fraction of the cost and geeks like you and I are starting tor realize that.

Let’s talk about this example: First, it’s a vintage Tudor – it represents a relatively early stage of a brand that has become an icon. Next, it’s a Prince Oysterdate, a beautifully refined expression of the famous Rolex waterproof steel design. A little closer, it features an smooth steel bezel, a hugely desirable detail because of the sleekness it gives the entire aesthetic. And, as I mentioned above, its dial and date wheel take this piece to the next level.

I could not be more proud but to be offering this piece here to you so, well, enjoy!

I cannot recommend T&H enough. Christian is an amazing business man and is really willing to work with you to get you your dream time piece. He has become more than a business contact, he has become a friend. I have never received better customer service from any other vendor let alone one who deals with such luxury items. I will continue to purchase my time pieces from them and fir years to come. If you are looking for a great deal on a time piece or other high end luxury item Theo and Harris is the place to buy. 10/10 A++

Bought my first vintage Rolex in celebration of my success thus far in college. I ordered it right before class then two days later I received it. The watch is even more beautiful in person than it was in the pictures. The T&H team is fantastic and, in my opinion the best vintage watch retailer out there. I say this because of how transparent the team is which eliminates the gray areas (Ebay and Chrono24 don't even come close)! If you want to be a part of the WatchFam, then go check out Theo and Harris on YouTube!

You never know what's going to pop up in the shop! I purchased a Porsche Design by Orfina a couple of months ago from the shop and I couldnt be more content. T&H is a small business so the process of purchasing the watch was super easy and reassuring because the staff reach out to you and have great communication along the way. Looking forward to the next watch that I'll buy from T&H!

Bought a vintage Omega Seamaster from Theo & Harris for my husband as my wedding gift to him. It's absolutely beautiful and he LOVES it. I wanted a different strap and Christian was able to swap it out for me before sending it. Thanks for all the help and the beautiful watch!

Christian answered all of my questions and gave me some great information when I emailed him about a watch I was interested in! Will definitely recommend the watch shop and his youtube channel to anyone I know getting into watches

My experience of buying from/selling to Theo and Harris has been first-class - way ahead of a lot of the young watch dealing business on the Net. Christian is very knowledgable and a pleasure to deal with. Delivery is speedy and the product was exactly as described/photographed. Buy with confidence.

Purchase was an absolute breeze, shipping was super fast & the watch was top quality. These guys are really approachable & quick to answer any questions I had. Definitely recommended for your vintage watch needs. I will shop with them many more times in the future.

Just leave it to Christian ! Guy is fantastic to deal with and more importantly he keeps his word. In terms of my experience I would’ve enjoyed a payment method that is not PayPal as the conversion rate caused me to pay an extra 200$ . Other than that you get what you paid for

Absolutely stunning! Although the pictures on T&H are awesome, the Omega Seamaster is even more amazing in person. Thanks for curating such a unique selection of vintage watches. The shipping was very fast and upon receiving the watch, I did notice minor mechanical issues (watch was running a bit fast). However, Christian was quick to help out and covered the servicing required. Now the watch is running perfectly! Will definitely come back for more!

Passion for the business. Simply put, that's what Theo & Harris is all about. From great content, stellar vintage watch options, and incredible watch straps. Every aspect has been considered and as a customer, nothing brings a smile to my face than that sort of thing. They care about everything they sell so much that you know what your buying has met the detail standards of a watch fanatic. I purchased a watch strap and will definitely be coming back for more.

Although the way things turned out I never bought anything from T&H it didn't stop Christian from giving me the professional, and most importantly personal, service that I would have expected to receive if I was to buy something like a Lange. I would not go to anyone else if I knew that T&H could do it for me. There is no alternative to the service and quality of Christian and the fine work he does.

UPDATE: Christian communicated the situation from his side. The fact that he put such detail into his response does show that he care. He did seem to take my feedback to heart and did get me a full refund. I would at least consider shopping for watches here again since it is such a solid collection of vintage watches.Changed score from 1/5--Original Review--Absolutely do not trust Theo & Harris with your busiuness.I bought a nice Tudor Prince Oysterdate from the team and absolutely loved it. That is until I realized it was losing about a minute and a half a day. So Christian from the T&H team gladly offered to pay for it to be regulated, as it probably got bumped in shipping. I took it to a well reviewed local watchmaker who said that actually the watch wasn't beating as fast as it should, which generally indicates a significantly larger issue. Christian offered to get it fixed up free of charge. So, I send it out, they get it on Feb 22. Weeks go by and I don't hear anything about watch repair updates for weeks, even with me emailing once a week, asking for ANY info. Eventually March 30th rolls around and Christian tells me that his watchmaker has just randomly up and left. He offered a discount on a watch strap for the inconvenience as well as offering to send my watch back unrepaired.At this point I realize that it will probably take them a few weeks to find a trusted watchmaker and get the watch fixed again. I say that if they can fix it within the next 2 weeks, I'll take the watch back or otherwise I just want a full refund.Here we are on April 9th and I have heard nothing at all back. I'll be calling Chase in the morning to dispute the original credit card charge. I would not do business with Theo & Harris again. It's just so disappointing because their site has such a great selection of vintages watches. They just either are a fraudulent company that don't care about you once they have your money or just are absolutely poorly operated. Either way, I recommend you taking your business elsewhere.

Christian @ T&H is a class act. Whether it's buying or selling watches, he *will* personally take care of you. It's refreshing to deal with actual people in these times as opposed to some corporate drone. 🙂

My experience with T&H was great, every question was answered properly, the watch was exactly as described and shipping was prompt and very secure. Definitely will buy again once I'm able to save for a 1601.

My purchase and overall expierence with Theo and Harris was absolutely wonderful. I sent in an email inquiring about doing a trade plus some extra cash. Christian responded very quickly and a very fair deal was made after some research on his end. I paid on a friday and the watch was delivered on the following Tuesday. I am absolutely thrilled with the watch and the overall buying experience. Christian was so very helpful and quick to respond to any question that I had. I think that I was impressed the most by the care and service that was provided.

The only partner I trust to provide the best examples of vintage watches.I have partnered with Christian at Theo & Harris for just over a year. I've purchased several watches from him and each has been an excellent value. I've even partnered with Christian to resell some of my vintage pieces as I made adjustments to my collection. Christian is consistently a wealth of information, truthful in his approach, dogmatic about what's a solid value and what is not. I couldn't ask for a better parter to source quality vintage time pieces. The business mantra of T&H to provide an experience far and above the simple purchasing of vintage time pieces shines through with each experience.I am happy to report I've just purchased my next vintage piece from him and don't expect to stop anytime soon.

First-class operation. Christian and team place a high premium on earning trust and they make sure you are satisfied. Received personalized follow-up after the sale, and my entire experience was excellent. Highest marks! Thank you T&H!

I recently purchased a vintage birth-year Omega from them and it went as smooth as the sweeping seconds hand of a Seiko Spring Drive. Price was market price and the condition of the watch exceeded my expectations. Obviously it's not perfect since it's a watch that's over 30 years old but great for its age. Delivery was prompt and only took a couple of days to arrive in Hong Kong. Any answers were replied quickly and Christian was extremely helpful. Definitely recommend.

I have nothing but great things to say about the watches sold by Theo & Harris as well as the customer service provided by Christian and the T&H team! It is clear that they care about what they do and, perhaps more importantly, about their customers. After quite a bit of searching, I purchased an amazing vintage Rolex from T&H, and I could't be happier with the result. It is a beautiful watch, and the purchasing process couldn't have been smoother. If you are hesitant about purchasing a vintage watch online, you shouldn't be. Everything is as promised, and judging by their continued success, I am certain that they will be around a long time. I would certainly buy another timepiece from them, and have already recommended T&H to friends and colleagues interested in buying a vintage watch. Keep up the great work, T&H!!!!
