Urban Explorer Or Gent-At-Large, Try a Rangemaster

The Urban Gentry is one of the best You Tube channels around, with pithy observations on watchmaking, heritage tales and lively opinions. The Island watch connection has been established for a couple of years and this Rangemaster is the first collab between the Island Watch store and the The Urban Gentry.

Powered by a Miyota 9039 series automatic this is a slim watch at 10mm high. A case diameter of 38mm gives it dress watch diemensions, but it’s also a tool watch. Lots of lume on the dial and numbers, with those bold 3/6/9 numerals standing out like a Tudor frankly, or a Rolex Explorer. Sapphire crystal, steel bracelet and a screwdown crown giving 100m of water resistance. It isn’t a dive watch, but this will survive life on a mountain bike ride, paddle board trip etc at weekends.

It is affordable too at $369 right now. Add some import duty for Uk buyers of course.
