Upepo means ‘wind’ in Swahili, a vital element in determining migration patterns particularly during the rainy seasons from April - May and mid-October to December. Also, the presence of a cool summer breeze on the hot African plains is always welcomed, referred to as 'kupunga upepo'. That's why we chose this beautiful word for our Ranger.
This Safari Ranger is a compact beast forged with stainless steel and a determination for exploration. Measuring 40mm across your wrist, it has the simple elegance of a field-style tool watch.
The beauty of a California dial never ceases to amaze us. Add to that a vibrant colorway shining through a flat sapphire crystal and you've got a winner. Our brand-new case has a charm of its own, too - peep those convex grooves that provide a firm finger hold while using the screw-down crown.
Depicted on the case back is one of four (at random) animal species found on a typical safari, a reminder to conserve our wildlife population. In an age of digital technology, we daresay an old-school toughie like this is a natural selection.
