Tudor Heritage Ranger Watches: Explorer’s Statement Timepieces

The Tudor Heritage Ranger watches are stylish and fit for adventure. For starters, the timepieces are fantastic to pair with the explorer’s getup. Think of the clothing of Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Owen Grady in Jurassic World, or typical hiker or camper outfits. The Tudor Heritage Ranger watches would complement those as signature timepieces because of their orange-brown leather, camouflage woven fabric, and stainless-steel straps.

The iconic Tudor watches are also user-friendly. Their uncluttered dial layouts and luminous markings are convenient if you want to know the time quickly while navigating through dark and dangerous terrains. Furthermore, most models are automatic and have power reserves lasting 38 hours, meaning they do not need to be wound by hand often. Finally, the timepieces are water-resistant up to 150m. This lets the watches work well under inclement weather conditions, and even when you’re accidentally submerged in a stream or diving at the safest depths.

How much does a Tudor Heritage Ranger watch cost?

The Tudor Heritage Ranger is considered to be a budget-friendly counterpart of the bestselling Rolex Explorer from Tudor’s sister brand, Rolex. With this, you can acquire the Tudor Heritage Ranger at much lower prices, with popular modern variants costing no more than $5,000 USD.

Price and Features of the Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0001 

At first glance, the modern Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0001 might seem to be a replica of the 1967 Tudor Oyster Prince Ref. 7995 where it is inspired from. The timepiece has the same basic black luminescent dial and is an all-steel build, which is also why it just comes between $3,000 USD and $4,000 USD.

When you take a closer look at the watches, however, their size immediately stands out. The Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0001 is 41mm in diameter, unlike the vintage watch that is 34mm. Also, it boasts a bigger crown but a thinner bezel. The new timepiece is subtly different from the classic model, earning the admiration of collectors for its delicate balance of vintage and modern aesthetics.

Price and Features of the Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0009 

The Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0009 is more affordable than the Ref. 79910-0001 watch. It costs only from $2,000 USD to $3,000 USD because it adopts a fabric strap instead of stainless steel.

Though less expensive compared to the previous model, the Ref. 79910-0009 timepiece should not be underrated in terms of appearance. It showcases a camouflage strap pattern that exudes a military vibe. The design lasts long, too, because it is woven instead of printed. As for the dial, it also comes in a style that resembles the Tudor Ranger watches of the 1960s.

Price and Features of the Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0012 

The Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0012 is another budget-friendly option, costing between $2,000 USD and $3,000 USD. Its difference from the first two popular models is its apricot-colored bund leather strap.

For anyone who is not familiar with what a bund strap is, it is the type that goes all over the wrist. Bund straps, originating from the first pilot and military watches, were designed to prevent the skin from feeling cold because of the steel watch case.

With the Ref. 79910-0012 timepiece, the strap part underneath the watch’s head is cut to match the case dimensions. The portion near the timepiece’s case, meanwhile, has pairs of studs as accents. That makes the watch look the most rugged among other models in the collection and the best match for professional ranger outfits.

Price and Features of the Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-BKBR 

The Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-BKBR is another watch listed from $2,000 USD to $3,000 USD and also touts a bund leather strap. The band has round decorative studs, neat stitching, and an ochre hue that is slightly darker than the Ref. 79910-0012’s strap.

The watch is regarded as a reliable basic military watch not only because of its band design and color. It has a secure fit on the wrist and is readable even in the dark.

Price and Features of the Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0013 

The Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. 79910-0013 is a watch that anyone, adventure seeker or not, will love. It features a design that suits both outdoor and formal clothing. The style's versatility is mainly because of its dark brown leather strap.

The watch is priced between $3,000 USD and $4,000 USD. The modern timepiece’s minimalistic black dial and regular band type and stitching make it a budget-friendly luxury accessory.

Are Vintage Tudor Heritage Watches Good Investments?

The Tudor Heritage Ranger collection is preceded by the Tudor Ranger and Oyster, OysterPrince, and Oysterdate timepieces, all of which are decent investments. Outdated watches cost even more than the current value of the modern releases, with prices exceeding $7,000 USD.

Reselling the retro models is quite challenging, though, because one has to determine if the watches are Tudor Ranger timepieces in the first place. The difficulty stems from how the watches are historically named. To elaborate, vintage Tudor Oyster variants are considered by some horology experts as the earliest Ranger models. That is even if those are not officially labeled as Ranger watches.

As a result, experts advise investing in Tudor Ranger models from the 1980s. These were the watches that officially had the word Ranger in their name. That is so that when one resells any of the recommended timepieces, it can be said without contention that it is an original vintage Tudor Ranger model.

Tudor Heritage Ranger's History: Staying True to Its Roots 

The Tudor Heritage Ranger began in 1963 with the Tudor Oyster Prince Ref. 7965. This is an automatic piece with a stainless-steel body, featuring a simple black luminescent dial with an arrow hour hand and quarter-hour Arabic numeral indexes. Its design has served as inspiration for modern-day Tudor Heritage Ranger watches.

Following the success of the Tudor Oyster Prince Ref. 7965, the Tudor Oyster Prince Ref. 7995 and Oysterdate Ref. 7966 were released in 1966. The former borrowed all the design aspects of the 1963 model, except for variants that had an updated logo design. The latter was the first to showcase a pencil-style minute hand. It is also the design the newer 1969 Ref. 9050 was based on.

By the 1970s, the Tudor Oyster Ref. 7984 and Ref. 7991 were released. They were the earliest Ranger watches that were wound manually. Despite using different movements, the two timepieces remained faithful to the classic design of the early Tudor adventurer watches.

Then came the 1980s, when Tudor officially named their adventurer’s watches Tudor Ranger. The reference numbers were also of a different series format compared to that of the Oyster variants. Examples are the popular Tudor Ranger Ref. 90200 and Ref. 90220 automatic watches that still adopted the signature style of the older timepieces, although they had new calibers and label styles.

In 2009, Tudor launched its Heritage collection, the umbrella catalog that modern Ranger watches fall under. The timepieces from this line are a tribute to the brand’s timeless designs.

In 2014, Tudor Heritage Ranger watches entered the market. The timepieces retain the brand’s minimalistic dials yet integrate streamlined bezels and straps, as enthusiasts know today. Besides being fashionable, they remain reliable adventurer’s watches.

Reasons to Buy a Tudor Heritage Ranger Watch 

Adventurers, collectors, and watch enthusiasts who purchase a Tudor Heritage Ranger watch for the first time will not regret doing so. They are even likely to become patrons of the collection. There are many reasons why: 

1. Budget-friendly 

Tudor Heritage Ranger watches are low-cost alternatives to the Rolex Explorer timepieces and great entry-level luxury adventurer’s timepieces. They look nearly the same and are as useful as the latter yet have their market niche because of the affordable pricing. 

2. Timeless Designs 

The Tudor Heritage Ranger’ designs have remained consistent since launch, and are still well appreciated by younger generations today. Also, that could mean that modern iterations can be as profitable in the future as the rare vintage models.

3. Watch Versatility

Minimalist timepieces are also versatile to fit a range of fashion tastes. The Tudor Heritage Ranger watches showcase that aesthetic so they can attract more patrons compared to complicated tool watches.

4. Timepiece Durability

The Tudor Heritage Ranger timepieces can last a lifetime. Models that have gone vintage can typically be resold for a good price because they are still functional, can withstand rust, and accrue minimal scratches over time. Durability is due to the cases being in stainless steel and straps in genuine leather or meticulously woven fabric. 

5. Strong Branding

While Tudor is a successful brand on its own, it is still associated with its sister brand Rolex. That is part of the magic behind its strong appeal. The brand’s origin conveys to potential clients that they can get Rolex quality in a Tudor Heritage Ranger watch. 

Tudor Heritage Ranger: Great for Outdoor Escapades 

The Tudor Heritage Ranger’s best aspects are its well-executed designs and practical functions that are perfect for any outdoor adventure. The style has the right balance of being rugged and casual while the performance is not subpar for a basic timepiece.
