The Manual Wind: Tudor Heritage Ranger
The term entry level no longer has a stigma attached to it. Competition amongst watch brands has truly benefited the consumer, and you can thank Tudor. Since the rerelease of the brand stateside, Tudor has turned classic designs of the 1960s and 1970s into the current watch-standard for the under five thousand price point. Models such as the Heritage Chronograph and Black Bay are in high demand. Their latest release, The Tudor Heritage Ranger, will surely not be far behind. This remake of the 1967 Tudor Ranger pays homage to its forefather with added modern updates.
Cast in brushed stainless steel, the 41mm Ranger case withholds a Tudor caliber 2824 automatic movement with thirty-eight hour power reserve. Layered above is a matte black Rolex Explorer-esque dial with luminous hands and markers. The versatility of this timepiece is recognized by Tudor in the many strap options offered.
Choose from a stainless steel bracelet, calf cuff strap, brown calf strap, and sporty camouflage nato. This classic design allows for both casual dress and sport and Tudor wants to make sure they have got you covered.
With an MSRP of under $3,000, Tudor is once again putting brands like Bell & Ross and Longines to task. Thankfully consumers and enthusiasts alike will keep reaping the benefits of this horological competition. Check out the Tudor Heritage Ranger and the other offerings by Rolex’s little brother Tudor.
