NEW TUDOR RANGERTHE ADVENTURER’S TOOL WATCH
SpiritOf the Ranger
It was on 8th July 1952, that the British North Greenland Expedition left Deptford, an area on the banks of the Thames in London, for a two-year scientific mission studying ice sheets in Greenland. Equipped with the brand-new Oyster Prince model, TUDOR’s first watch that was both automatic and waterproof, the members of the expedition, mainly British scientists and sailors, conducted in-depth glaciological and seismic surveys at several sites. TUDOR also asked them to gather performance data for the 30 Oyster Prince watches that would be worn under extreme conditions.
THE SPIRIT OF THE BRITISH NORTH GREENLAND EXPEDITION
It is the adventurous spirit of these pioneers of arctic exploration, that the latest addition to the Ranger line celebrates, offering an affordable combination of cutting-edge watchmaking technology and historic aesthetics.
RANGER, THE TOOL WATCH
Ranger continues, within the TUDOR collection, the tradition of the expedition watch, born with the Oyster Prince watches used by the members of the British North Greenland Expedition. A robust, practical, and affordable instrument.
The new Ranger model respects the aesthetic standards established in the course of its history, especially its dial with Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, whilst incorporating new state-of-the-art technical elements, in particular a high-performance Manufacture Calibre and a TUDOR “T-fit” clasp with rapid adjustment system.
