The applied Tudor shield indicates this piece was created after 1969, when the rose logo was retired. The Tudor Date+Day model line was launched in 1952 and in 1953, Rolex improved its Oyster system by introducing its Twinlock winding crown, which, combined with the screw-down case back, guaranteed a Rolex’s waterproofness to 330 feet. When looking at the crown of this Tudor 7017 you will see that it has the Twinlock designation — an underline mark beneath the Rolex coronet, which shows Tudor’s clear historic and close connection to Rolex.

Unlike Rolex which only made the Day-Date in precious metals, except for one exception, the Tudor Date+Day is made in stainless steel and is very much similar to a Rolex Day-Date that was produced at that time as Rolex produced the case and parts for the Tudor watches.
