Tudor’s new Pelagos dive watch bares resemblances to the old Tudor Submariner’s from the 1960’s and 1970’s; specifically, the Snowflake hands. But the case and bezel insert are also reminiscent of the vintage Tudor Sub’s. The bracelet is quite interesting, with a self-adjusting bracelet which adjusts based upon your depth/water pressure (see video below).

Press Release:

The new TUDOR Pelagos, waterproof to a depth of 500 metres (1640 feet), is a fusion of technology and innovation. Its sporting character and impeccable reliability will meet the requirements of lovers of the deep and those passionate about the vital marine environment.

TECHNICAL MASTERY A diving tool par excellence, the new TUDOR Pelagos is a fusion of technical mastery and mechanical reliability. It is also a proud reference to several style codes that have punctuated TUDOR’s history and left their mark on some of the company’s most iconic models. The Pelagos is an invitation to explore the silent world in a new dimension.

 

A TRIBUTE TO THE SEA The new TUDOR Pelagos is a tribute to the sea, to those who are active in it and those who conserve it. Reliable, technically outstanding and a superlative sports model, the Pelagos marks another step forward in the illustrious history that binds TUDOR to the ocean depths.

INSTRUMENT FOR THE DEEP Waterproof to a depth of 500 metres (1640 feet), this superlative watch has a case with a diameter of 42 mm. Made entirely of titanium and completely satin-finished – resulting in a special sheen and a rugged look – it is an aesthetic expression of the power of this deep-sea instrument.

GAS ESCAPE VALVE The case is equipped with a helium valve (necessary to absorb unpredictable variations in pressure) marked GAS ESCAPE VALVE on the side of the straight-edged case.

LUMINESCENCE IN THE DEEP Enhanced with a unidirectional rotatable bezel, with a matt black ceramic disc and luminescent numerals, The TUDOR Pelagos is thick enough to ensure excellent grip and ease of handling. Even in extreme conditions, perfect readability is assured by generous hour markers and luminescent “Snowflake” hands. An original two-sided internal flange incorporates the applied hour markers in a triangular, rectangular or square shape – a reminder of the brand’s historical models.
