New TUDOR Pelagos FXD

TUDOR watch announces another great divers watch, the new TUDOR Pelagos FXD. This watch is the ultimate modern-day tribute to military diving watches. The new Pelagos FXD pays tribute to decades of TUDOR watches on the wrists of US Navy divers. It is complete with fixed strap bars, a titanium case, a high-performance Manufacture Caliber, and a unidirectional elapsed-time rotating bezel. The TUDOR Pelagos FXD is the ultimate modern “Milsub” (short for Military Submariner) of yesteryear.

Did you know that TUDOR has been issuing people in the dive community timepieces to the US Navy since the late 1950s? The SEAL teams famously used these watches from their commissioning in 1962 through the 1980s. Starting with the TUDOR Reference #7922, these durable watches were waterproof to 100 meters. Their reliability and preciseness are the stuff of legends.

In the 1965 US Navy’s “First Edition” of the Underwater Demolition Team Handbook, a TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner ref. 7928 is pictured above. Visually, the new Pelagos FXD is in line with a late ‘60s-era TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner reference 7016; it incorporates elements from the US Government specifications for diving watches, such as fixed spring bars, as well as details inspired by other generations of issued TUDORs like pointed crown-guards typically found on early TUDOR Submariners.

The modern Pelagos FXD’s heart is the TUDOR Manufacture Caliber MT5602. It exhibits the typical finish of TUDOR Manufacture Calibers. Its rotor in tungsten monobloc is openwork and satin-brushed with sand-blasted details, while its bridges and main plate have alternate sand-blasted, polished surfaces and laser decorations.

The new Pelagos FXD’s build has been designed to ensure robustness, longevity, reliability, and precision, as has its variable inertia balance, which is maintained by a sturdy traversing bridge with a two-point fixation. Together with its non-magnetic silicon hairspring, the Manufacture Caliber MT5602 is certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), with its performance going beyond the standards set by this independent institute. In fact, where COSC allows an average variation in the daily running of a watch of between -4 and +6 seconds in relation to absolute time in a single movement, TUDOR insists on between -2 and +4 seconds variation in its running when it is completely assembled.

Another notable feature is that the power reserve of the Manufacture Caliber MT5602 is “weekend-proof.” That means the power reserve is good for about 70 hours, enabling the wearer to take the watch off on a Friday evening and put it back on again on Monday morning without having to wind it.
