Ranger vs Pro

Hello all. I’m looking for your opinions. I understand that the Tudor Ranger and the Tudor BBPro are significantly different watches as one is a time only and the other is a 3 complication piece, however for me it is more about the way I would use them. For me they fit the need of an everyday wearer. 
If you own both could you comment on your opinion of which may suit my purpose better? If you don’t own either I would also appreciate your opinions. 
Thank you in advance.

Not sure why, but I always seem to gravitate towards dials with numerals, Ranger included.  

I do not own either, but would go Ranger.  

Enjoy either one you decide on.  Both are nice.

·

I'd go for the Pro -- it's more useful in more situations.  It can dress up or down, it's good for travel, and it's got better WR than the Ranger.  The only disadvantages that it has are thickness (which isn't that bad -- and I speak as an owner of a BB GMT which is the same thickness) and price.

·

They are both solid choices it just depends on your use. For me I like the gmt.

·

Both nice, but I like that the Ranger has less going on.

·

How do you intend on using them? Are you hoping for it to be a beater watch where ruggedness is more important to what an office worker might require?

I‘d personally go for the Ranger because I wouldn’t want my watch to be more interesting than I am.

‘Man made the watch, the watch never made the man.’

Pro!! Best release from Tudor in years IMO ☺️ Rugged clean design, good functions and good size (even though it's thick). The BB36 silver dial is pretty killer too, that's not on the meny here. 

Disclaimer: Haven't tried any of them on.

Good point. It would be a beater but to be fair a beater to me is really a watch I wear most of the time for any purpose. I would only take it off if there was some special occasion where I would want to wear something to match say an outfit

The Ranger seems like a better everyday wearer. Simple enough you can dress it up with a leather band or dress down with a nato. Also lower maintenance as it has a simpler movement and less parts. Lastly more comfortable over time as its smaller with less thickness and weight.

All that said, Ive tried the Tudro GMT, but not owned one. Have not tried a Ranger, I imagine it feels similar to other three handers of its size.

#tudor Black Bay Pro

  • GMT - Different time zone, day night indicator, 4th hand, Yellow hand 🤚 - pick any reason 
  • Date - There is no history without knowing the date. how would you know how many days have passed by since you last purchased a watch. You don’t want to be Tom Hanks from Cast Away with tally marks on the wall while looking at your Ranger. 
  • Black & Yellow combination: How many cool things do you know that have that combination. E.g. Taxi cab 🚕
  • And lastly:

That is awesome. Great reasoning. 👍🏽

I like the Pro. I find the Ranger bland.

Putting personal tastes and how this might wear on you aside, as an everyday wearer, you've may need to consider:

  • How would you feel if you scratched or dinged either watch on a table, door or another metal object?
  • Will you change the look of the watch from time to time? Perhaps strap versatility is a thing to consider.
  • Versatility to dress up/down. Is that a must?

I'd personally go for the Ranger. Almost complete brushed finish will hide scratches better, more than enough WR for everyday use and less shouty, so as to blend in, whether you're pottering around the house or attending a fancy event.

gmt

don't have either but i would go gmt

·

I want both. If I had to pick right now, Ranger. 

·

Ranger. It's a good watch, and I've always loved its aesthetics.  

·

The dimensions of the Pro are way too bulky, hence I‘d choose the Ranger. If both fit you, I’d still choose the Ranger due to the ((ugly)) Snowflake hand of the Pro.
