10 Reasons Why You Should Get in Line for a Tudor Ranger

By Emerson Yao


I’ve been spending some time enjoying the recently launched Tudor Ranger, and I realized that this amazing watch has many features to be proud of and why it should be a must have watch to many sports watch enthusiast. Let me highlight ten reasons why you will want this watch.

1. Classic vintage design. I find that this Ranger looks really nice in a modern classic way. The dial has its roots in the early 60’s, with the Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, hour marker batons, and arrow hands all painted in luminescent beige paint. The Scratch Proof sapphire dome crystal also adds to that retro look.

2. Comfortable on the wrist. Gone are the days of monster watches 44mm and up. At 39 mm, the Ranger’s size and weight is just perfect. The bracelet clasp is also fitted with the patented TUDOR “T-fit” rapid adjusting clasp which allows you to adjust manually the size of your bracelet without the use of a tool. This comes in handy when it’s warm and the watch seems to feel tighter.

3. COSC Certified. Movements of all Ranger watches are chronometer certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), guaranteeing a well-built watch with precision timing.
4. In-house movement. Tudor equips the new Ranger with Manufacture Calibre MT5402, which surpasses the standards set by the COSC. The COSC allows a variation of -4/+6 seconds, but the MT5402 runs with only -2/+4 seconds variation.

5. Silicon hairspring. With the proliferation of super magnets these days, you need the antimagnetic characteristics of this hairspring to make sure your watch stays accurate and not be affected by magnetic force.

6. “Weekend-off” 70-hours power reserve. This means when you take off your watch on Friday, it will still run perfectly when you put it back on Monday. This convenience means you don’t have to reset your watch after a long weekend, and it lessens the wear and tear on your watch.

7. 100m water resistance. While the Ranger isn’t a dive watch, it’s still hardy enough to protect against water seepage.

8. 5-Year Warranty. For all its stylishness, the Ranger is a tool watch. It’s built to withstand whatever rugged adventure you put it through. Tudor built a robust watch, and they stand by its quality for five years, one of the longest in the industry.


9. Heritage. The Ranger’s launch coincides with the 70th anniversary of the British North Greenland Expedition. Back then, Tudor sent 26 of the newly launched Oyster Prince watches, the brand’s very first automatic and waterproof model, off with the explorers as they spent two years in sub-zero conditions. The current Ranger is inspired by the no-date-stripped-down-tool-watch Oyster Prince, but takes its style inspiration from the first official Ranger line from the 1960s.

10. Affordability. The Tudor Ranger retails at P141,000.00 (strap) and P157,500.00 (steel bracelet). You will not find anything comparable in the market that boasts of these features, history, and innovation.

Have I convinced you? Drop by and try a Tudor Ranger on your wrist at one of the Tudor boutiques: The Watch House C1, High Street, Fort Bonifacio BGC, and TUDOR at The Podium Mall, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
