After the Heritage Black Bay divers watch this Tudor is the next eye-catching sport watch from the Rolex little sister. If you are probably still looking for an attractive Christmas gift these days, and you don’t want to spend to much money, I recommend you to have a closer look at the new Heritage Ranger.
This was the original Tudor Oyster Prince Ranger Ref. 7995 from 1967:
This was the source of inspiration, but Tudor told me: “Far from being a mere re-edition, it is a distinct reinterpretation, a true temporal and stylistic encounter of past, present and future. The aesthetic codes that contributed to the renown of the historic models are preserved and injected with modern touches to update the iconic spirit of the models.”
So let´s have a closer look:
The Heritage Ranger´s matt black dial bearing the Tudor Rose logo is domed, as is the crystal – both typical features of the 1950s and 1960s Tudor models. The “3”, “6”, “9” and “12 o’clock” hour markers on the dial are not appliques as on the other models in the Heritage line, but painted with a coloured luminous substance for a warm and tempting antique effect. The characteristic pear-shaped hands are inspired by the 1960s Tudor Ranger models.
The case of the Heritage Ranger now measures 41 mm in diameter and is entirely satin-finished like all steel parts of this new model. The large, satin-finished crown, similar to that of the Tudor Heritage Black Bay, is engraved with the historic Tudor Rose logo. It screws onto a protruding satin-finished tube.
Four bracelets have been designed for the watch: The first bracelet is a bund strap with satin-finished rivets; its steel-folding clasp is also entirely satin-finished. The second bracelet is an adjustable and particularly comfortable fabric strap with a camouflage motif woven in green tones. The third bracelet is made of tobacco-coloured leather reminiscent of sled harnesses. It is also equipped with the Tudor folding clasp in its satin-finished version. The fourth and last version, featuring the same clasp, is a bracelet entirely made of machined satin-finished steel. Its distinctive shape is a nod to the bracelets with tube-type attachments used by the brand in the 1950s. Each Tudor Heritage Ranger comes with a fabric strap as well as a second bracelet that may be chosen from among the three other available options.
As on the brand’s historic models, the lugs of the new Heritage Ranger are drilled through to accommodate the strap bars.
