Often referred to as Tudor's answer to the Rolex Explorer, the Ranger is one of the most elusive and coveted vintage Tudor models, with only a small number being produced and as such few good examples surviving today. The Ranger is also one of Rolex and Tudor's most heavily faked models and so good, original examples rarely come to the market. The Ranger was introduced in the 1960s and offered until the late 1980s, and as such there are several variations across several difference references. Rescapement has an excellent For Your Reference article on the subject.

This particular example is a ref. 7966/0 featuring original "Swiss Only" shield dial and distinctive original hands, both of which retain their original Tritium luminous. The case has a case serial of 58xxxx dating to circa 1968, and inside is the original, correct calibre 2484 automatic movement. It also has its original Rolex signed screw-down crown. The watch is twinned to a "camo" suede strap to match its Explorer vibe!

This watch is a good, original and wearable example of a heavily faked and elusive watch. The dial is in very good condition, showing small signs of age. The case is cosmetically pretty clean, whilst showing a few signs of age and small scratches. The strap has had very little wear.
