Meet the adventurous TUDOR Ranger

We know the TUDOR Ranger for its unmistakable adventurous spirit. On the occasion of the watch's one-year anniversary, GASSAN would like to explain the history that preceded its final development. A history that includes daring scientific expeditions.

Presented to mark the seventieth anniversary of the British North Greenland Expedition, the Ranger has an unmistakable spirit of adventure. In 1952, during this daring scientific expedition on the ice of Greenland, the mission members conducted in-depth glaciological and seismic studies, as well as one of the very first long-term tests in extreme conditions for this toolwatch. The members then wore the Oyster Prince, the predecessor of the Ranger, making this watch a continuation of the TUDOR expedition watch concept: robust, reliable and precise.

Robust, reliable and precise

The Arabic numerals at 3,6,9 and 12 o'clock and the luminous indexes contrast with the matte black background of the dial. The hands, shaped like a rounded arrow for the hours and angular for the seconds, are characteristic of the Ranger's aesthetic. The timepiece combines vintage aesthetics with advanced watchmaking technology, has a power reserve – the time before a timepiece needs to be re-wound – of 70 hours and is powered by a COSC-certified in-house caliber designed for robustness, reliability and precision. All this with a 5-year international and transferable warranty. 

Bold and designed for adventure, the Ranger comes with three different straps: in fully satin-finished steel, in natural rubber and textured black leather or in olive green jacquard fabric. TUDOR has collaborated with the Julien Faure family business to create fabric straps that continue a centuries-long tradition of craftsmanship and quality.
