Tudor is a reputable and beloved watch brand that has forged a close partnership with the Rolex company, sharing its origins with the brand. It has established a reputation for using the finest parts, some Rolex in the vintage timepieces, but it has also established its unique traditions in watchmaking that distinguishes Tudor from the others. One of the most successful model lines in its history is Heritage. The Tudor Heritage is offered in many iterations with the DNA of the family line but distinctions that make each piece unique. For your consideration and enjoyment, here are the top Five Tudor Heritage Models.
5. Tudor Heritage Ranger
The Tudor Heritage Ranger made its debut in 2014 as a more modern version of the 1960s iteration of the Ranger.

The Ranger has since been discontinued but it has evolved into a collectible piece as it becomes more difficult to find. The Ranger combines the best elements of the vintage with a modern appeal. The 2014 version features a 1960s vintage aesthetic with painted hour markers. The case is made of stainless steel in a width of 41 mm with the signature Tudor rose stamp on the crown, a beveled case with a matching buckle for the strap.
