Tudor Ranger 2022 Review

This will not be a long review. I will not bore you with the specs, which everyone probably knows them at this point for this watch. I have been watch collecting for about 15 years. I have had a ton of watches but mostly on the affordable range. To be fair this Ranger was the most expensive watch I have purchased. Not to say that I have not had luxury watches in the past. I have Longine Spirit in 42MM as well. But the Tudor is a class above.

Don鈥檛 get me wrong the Longine is a nice watch but the first time I saw the Tudor Ranger It was just a class above. It鈥檚 the first time I thought to my self that鈥檚 a luxury watch. I can鈥檛 point to one thing in particular making me think that. I know some people may be confused by that because the watch is so simple. Maybe that is was drew me in. The simplicity of the design and the dial. This has allowed them to focus on the finishing of the bracelet and the overall quality of the piece. This model did have the T-fit clasp with on the fly micro adjustment. But for this was the beginning of the end. Spoiler alert I did not keep the watch and here is why. Even thought it had the T-fit clasp I could not get a good fit. No matter the micro adjustments or the amount of links I took off. It was either to tight to the point of tattooing my wrist, or it was hanging down on my hand. This was very dissapointint to me. I have a 7 inch wrist and have not had this issue in the past. If I am spending that kind of money the watch should at least fit. Not to say that it is a bad watch for this. i m sure it will fit ninety percent of the people out there. I think this is a beautiful watch. WIth and amazing brushed finished to all aspect. The simplicty was well done and the watch screamed luxury. If you are looking for a one and done watch this is your watch right here. In my opinion this can be worn daily with jeans and a t-shirt or you can gout out on the town with it. This is a do it all Luxory watch.

I like your take on the simplicity being part of the appeal. Sorry it didn鈥檛 work out.

I have, and love, a Ranger as well and fully agree. I found a nice fit with my bracelet, and I鈥檝e had nothing but good results on different straps. Just yesterday I was back at that AD I bought from and tried some other Tudor on. They鈥檙e very nice and well made but the Ranger has a unique appeal compared to the (very nice) selection of divers.

My Ranger is by far the most worn watch in my collection and with a few strap options it really could be the only watch one needs. The look isn鈥檛 for everyone but it鈥檚 for me.

I don鈥檛 know, but none of the hour hands of Tudor are to my liking. Neither the snowflake nor the buttplug.

I count out the Royal, though. That whole thing is not attractive, if you ask me.

Nice watch, just wish it had applied indices,( like the BB pro or the Vertex) for the asking price to make it a bit more premium.The bracelet wouldn't bother me as I'm NATO 99% of the time.

Longines Spirit is a beautiful watch 馃槏

Tried this watch on as I really like the numbers on the dial and the no date ,but unfortunately it was too small for me

I had the same issue with the fit. I purchased a half link from Uncle Seiko and that solved the problem immediately. Best of luck!

Even thought it had the T-fit clasp I could not get a good fit. No matter the micro adjustments or the amount of links I took off. It was either to tight to the point of tattooing my wrist, or it was hanging down on my hand. This was very dissapointint to me. I have a 7 inch wrist and have not had this issue in the past.

That's a bit surprising - I've got something like 6.8 inch wrist and the Ranger is hands down my most comfortable watch. Perhaps we have differently shaped wrists, though. For me it's also the most expensive watch I've ever bought, but I totally love it and I wear it almost every day.

I wonder why didn't you try it on rubber or some NATO, though. With them it's easy to get a good fit for just about anything. I think Uncle Seiko has a nice alternative Ranger bracelet as well.

+1 I did the exact same thing - half link from Uncle Seiko made all the difference in bracelet fitment for me.

For those looking to do the same: you will need to "unpolish" the sides of the US half link to match the rest of the brushed finishing on the Ranger.
