Celebrating The Adventurous Spirit
Tudor Ranger

Tudor has released the latest version of its Ranger timepiece to mark the 70th anniversary of the British North Greenland Expedition and celebrate the spirit of this adventurous mission.

A quick look at the British North Greenland Expedition and the tool watch accompanying these explorers: the team, mainly consisting of scientists and sailors, left London for Greenland in 1952 for a two-year scientific mission, conducting in-depth glaciological and seismic surveys. Members of the team were equipped with the Tudor Oyster Prince watch, the brand’s first timepiece with both automatic and waterproof functions — perfect for the extreme Arctic conditions. From there,  the concept of such a robust and practical expedition watch was carried over into subsequent Ranger models.

Fast forward to 2022, and the brand new Ranger features a 39 mm satin-brushed steel case with a fixed steel bezel of the same finish. The matte black dial with Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock continues the aesthetics of the series. The arrow-shaped hands are still here, while the tip of the seconds hand is now in burgundy. As with most expedition watches, all hour markers and hands are painted with Super-LumiNova luminescent material for nighttime viewing. The Manufacture Calibre MT5402 has a frequency of 28,800 beats/hour, a power reserve of 70 hours, and is waterproof to 100 metres. The Tudor Ranger is available now in three bracelet options: steel with the brand’s signature T-fit rapid-adjustment clasp, hybrid rubber and leather in black, or olive-green Jacquard fabric with red and beige stripes.
