Cheaper than the Explorer, the Ranger was a bargain new and had the option of a date. Early watches, like mine were fited with the roulette date wheel with alternating red and black text. Watches were motivated with an ETA movement. Mine being the 2484 from '66ish
I wish I had this watche's history, but it is right as rain in the Pacific Northwest. This is important as the Ranger is the second most commonly faked watch on the interwebs following the Submariner. I like to think some sergeant major bought this watch new at the PX in the late 60's being too cheap to scratch up an extra $100 for the Rolex Explorer.
Many know the Ranger was reintroduced by Tudor in the mid 2010s as part of their heritage collection.
Here is my watch:
All 34 manly mm's of it!
