So a little while ago I wrote an article on why the Black Bay 36 was the best alternative to the Rolex Explorer. And then last week Tudor went and ruined that with the launch of this new Ranger, which on the surface at least, would seem to be a better Explorer alternative. In fact, I’ve often said to myself that when Tudor did bring out a new Ranger, I would sell my Black Bay 36 and buy one of those instead. I was fortunate enough to be offered to spend some time with one on the launch day, and when I got the call I excitedly rushed in as fast as I could to see it. But when I held the watch in my hand, I must admit I felt very underwhelmed. Which is a real shame, because there’s a lot to like about this watch, and with a price of £2,420 on the steel bracelet, it’s a pretty tempting value proposition.
