For the last two years, I have been very interested in all sorts of watches. My passion really started when I discovered the watch brand, Tudor who are the sister brand of Rolex and in my eyes, are a much better choice than its bigger brother.

I liked the brand so much in fact that I decided to get one myself. Of course the Black Bay (their Submariner if you will) is the one everyone wants but I wanted something a little different and not quite so expensive. I looked at two watches. The first was the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight. Oh how I love the 58. This is a watch I wish I could own but there is one very simple problem I face. It is too small for me and looks a bit silly on my wrist I am afraid so, with a heavy heart I had to say goodbye to that dream.

The second watch I looked at also happens to be the very piece on my wrist as I write this. Yes you guessed it, I am wearing a Tudor Heritage Ranger. This is a very underrated watch in my opinion as it has all the major characteristics from a classic field watch yet all modern.

It has a large face with very legible numbers, no date, large crown and just an overall simplistic design. As standard they all come with a beautiful brown leather strap and an optional army style strap which I have never taken out the box. As you can see from some of the pictures, I have decided to whack it on a black fabric strap as I like the way it looks and I can get it wet without worrying too much.

There it is in action. Shrek loved it.

Over the last year or so, I have really enjoyed wearing this watch. It can do almost everything. I have taken it swimming, worn it with shorts and a t-shirt, worn it with a suit. To me, this is the perfect mechanical field watch. Yes, I would love a Black Bay but I am waiting for the right time with that one. When the price is right and the spec is nice, I will jump on it like a hungry hawk but for now, this is the one.

What do you think about Tudor?
