Back in the day, Rolex introduced the Explorer as their professional adventure watch for explorers that achieved heights such as climbing MT Everest.
At that time, Tudor made a watch known as the Ranger, which was their take on the Explorer with the Arabic Numeral of 12, 3, 9 and 6 set on a black dial.
For this Basel 2014, Tudor has brought back the Ranger to their modern day arsenal of reviving older heritage models.
The new Tudor Heritage Ranger is as simple and classic as it gets with a 41 mm stainless steel satinized case, a black dial with very legible 12,3,6,9 Arabic numerals and long indices inbetween and a red paddle shaped seconds hand for contrast and pop of color. The watch has a screw down crown with and automatic self-winding Tudor calibre 2824 movement, scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and water resistant to 200 meters.
Tudor delivers exception quality and styling at a price that can’t be matched. This watch will be in the low three thousand dollar range and will be available on a stainless steel brushed bracelet, bund strap and leather strap. All variations in addition come with a camouflage nylon fabric strap with steel buckle.
Just to be clear, unlike other brands that come out with fake vintage pieces, this watch is a modern day watch that has been classically interpreted and inspired by the original heritage model.
