TUDOR has marked the 70th anniversary of the two-year British North Greenland Expedition with the release of a new model.
The Ranger is a tool watch celebrating the spirit of this daring adventure, complete with Manufacture Calibre MT5402, a 39-millimetre case and a clasp with rapid adjustment system.
On 8th July 1952, the British North Greenland Expedition departed for a scientific mission to study ice sheets in Greenland.
The members of the expedition, mainly British scientists and sailors, conducted in-depth glaciological and seismic surveys at several sites.
While carrying out their mission, they wore the brand-new Oyster Prince model, TUDOR’s first watch that was both automatic and waterproof.
TUDOR asked the group to gather performance data for the 30 Oyster Prince watches that would be worn under extreme conditions.
It is the adventurous spirit of these pioneers of arctic exploration that the latest addition to the Ranger line celebrates, offering an affordable combination of state-of-the-art watchmaking technology and historic aesthetics.
