Vintage Tudor Ranger: All Parts Original?

Post by lunarin79 » 05 May 2015 09:43

I don't think so :)

Apparently, the red 'Ranger' word gave it away. There has never been a Ranger word in red for this model, only the refurbished dial has it.

Getting an original vintage Ranger is challenging, lots of recon dials out there, esp in red fonts.

Second giveaway sign is the Minute hand. Original Ranger Minute hand is straight and flushed all the way. Some aftermarket minute hands have slightly 'flared' hands, meaning it taperes out slightly wider near the minute hand edge.

An original Ranger commands more than 1k as well, if you can manage to find one :)

Even when you buy vintage from a reliable source, you'll still at risk when you are inexperience. Watch your 6 guys!

Be kind to one another if you even disagree on the stuff. Ephesians 4:29-32
A man age doesn't matter; it's the man heart... think positive & good things will come along the way...
