Launched in the 1960s and produced in its now-vintage form until the late 1980s, the Tudor Ranger was a robust field watch inspired by its cousin, the Rolex Explorer. Re-introduced in 2014, the Ranger’s role in Tudor’s history as a sports watch watchmaker cannot be overlooked. Sporting a 34mm stainless steel Rolex-signed case, caseback, crown, and bracelet, the Ranger’s construction was infamously robust for its day. Featuring a black dial with a 12-6-9 dial arrangement and a cyclops lens over its date window, the Ranger ref. 9050/0 offered an additional and valuable utility that the time-only Explorer and its predecessor time-only Ranger variants did not feature - a date display. With its unique shovel hands holding plenty of lume, the Ranger proved to be a popular watch with its fantastic versatility, sturdy construction, and sleek aesthetic ensuring that it would remain truly timeless – something that we can attest to given the proliferation of its design in modern horology.
