The highly desired Tudor Ranger field watch is back.

Watch fans hold a special place in their heart for anything Tudor (owned by Rolex) and tool watch-ish (purpose-driven). Pair that with a starting price of $2,725 and Swiss automatic movement, and the Ranger becomes a more attainable but not too shabby Rolex Explorer with a fascinating history in tow.

And now, for the first time since 2020, the Ranger is available again.

The Tudor Ranger’s design was inspired by the Oyster Prince, a watch made for a special scientific expedition in Greenland on July 8, 1952. The Oyster Prince was field tested in rugged, extreme conditions, with its time being monitored against hourly signals sent from the BBC. Its successful performance was boasted through a massive international advertising campaign and helped cement Tudor’s philosophy of being tough, and purpose built, into watch buyer’s mind worldwide.
