The Watch
.
Visually this Prince Oysterdate will be a familiar piece to many watch collectors. With Tudor's unavoidable connection to Rolex, this 74033 was born during a time when the two brands held hands a lot tighter than they do nowadays. What will not be overly familiar to many is the crazy Linen Dial, which gives us so much joy when the light hits the Dial. 
.
The Oyster Case is sized 34.5mm diameter, these 34.5mm cases were long considered to be less desirable than larger models from the company, but over the past few years, this has changed quite drastically. As size preferences have skewed slightly smaller, appreciation of these 34.5mm Oysters has risen thanks to an extremely comfortable on-the-wrist feel.
