Tudor Oyster Prince Strap

#1 Post by krautrocker » Thu Apr 26, 2018 12:09 pm

Greetings. New to the forum and fairly new to vintage watches.

I purchased the pictured Tudor Oyster Prince I think from the 1950's. Dog has chewed up the strap and need a new one.

Is there a particular strap to suit this watch's period? Would like to get as close as possible or is it a case generally in the vintage watch world
of getting one that's comfortable and pleasing to the eye? i.e. straps aren't considered important, the focus is exclusively focused on the watch itself?
Is there a certain clasp I should go for too? (current strap is 19mm wide)

Any info. gratefully received. Thanks

I looked through a bunch of old Tudor ads and didn't find a single example of any men's watches that were shown with a metal bracelet. And more specifically, ads for the Oyster Prince show a straight end oyster bracelet. For $40, you can get a generic that pretty much looks the part.

But if you're more inclined towards leather, he's what cousin Rolex was using around that era:

Any non-padded stitched strap should look about right. But 19mm, a.k.a. 3/4" is a common enough size that you could also easily find a NOS vintage strap.

Real men wear small watches.
