On July 8, 1952, the British North Greenland Expedition left Deptford, England for their two-year scientific mission to study ice sheets in Greenland. Members of the expedition were equipped with Tudor’s brand new Oyster Prince model, the first watch that was automatic and waterproof. Both features were a must in order to conduct in-depth glaciological and seismic surveys at several sites. But it was this very expedition that conserved the concept of the expedition watch. 

And as they mark the 70th anniversary of the British North Greenland Expedition, Tudor presents the Ranger tool watch donned with a Manufacture Caliber MT5402, a 39-millimeter case and a clasp with rapid adjustment system. It only seems fitting that it was the very spirit of the adventurous pioneers in the arctic exploration that the Ranger watch celebrates.

With its state of the art watchmaking technology and historic elements, it continues the tradition of the expedition watch withholds up to this day. The tradition of a tool watch that is robust and practical. The perfect instrument for those who are spirited, adventurous, and bold.

The new Ranger model is reminiscent of its functional heritage. With its satin-brushed 39 millimeter case to create an overall matte finish and the dial made with details of history as the hour markers are painted with luminescent material. A modern yet historical rendition but the watch symbolizes the purest spirit of a tool watch.
