TUDOR Ranger Marks 70th Anniversary of the British North Greenland Expedition

TUDOR honors the 70th anniversary of the British North Greenland Expedition on July 8th, 1952 with the new Ranger ref. 79950 model. Tudor’s 34mm Oyster Prince ref. 7808 model was used in the two-year scientific mission and was the brand’s first timepiece that is both automatic and waterproof. Their latest Ranger watch line encapsulates the spirit of the daring adventure, combining historical aesthetics with state-of-the-art watchmaking technology.  

Ranger is presented in a 39mm satin-brushed case in 316L steel. It is given a grade A Swiss Super-LumiNova for its hands paired with the grained, matte black domed dial. 

The timepiece is powered by the Manufacture Calibre MT5402, certified as a chronometer, and goes beyond the standard set forth by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. It has a balance and non-magnetic silicon balance spring. It is believed to be “weekend-proof” with a 70-hour power reserve which allows wearers to take the watch off on a Friday and only wind it as they put it back on again on Monday morning. 

Tudor gives customers three ways to wear the Ranger: in olive-green Jacquard fabric with red and beige stripes, a hybrid rubber and leather, or in a matching 316L steel with TUDOR “T-fit” rapid-adjustment clasp. The watch has a five-year transferable guarantee. 

Tudor Ranger 79950 is now available on the Tudor website.
