What is the meaning of the small rose designation compared to the larger rose on Tudor watches? Thanks in advance!

I could be mistaken but I believe the difference is not in the size of the Rose but between the early Tudor Rose & Shield emblem and just the later Rose emblem without the shield.

When "The Tudor" brand was transferred back to Hans Wilsdorf in 1936, the Tudor Dynasty Rose within a shield was inscribed on the watch dials as it signified the invincible union of strength. About 10 years later, the Rose and Shield was replaced with just the Todor Rose.
