TUDOR PELAGOS – AT HOME UNDERWATER

TUDOR has a long history of making cutting-edge and robust diving watches widely used by amateur and professional divers, including the world’s largest navies. It started in 1954 with the introduction of the brand’s first diving watch, reference 7922. Today TUDOR Pelagos is the proud heirloom of this tradition and the most advanced diving watch in the TUDOR collection.

The name Pelagos comes from Greek and means “relating to, or living in the open sea”. As the name suggests and thanks to its technical features, Pelagos is truly at home underwater, whether on the wrist of a free diver or at great depth in a diving bell.

TUDOR Pelagos’s impressive list of technical features includes being waterproof to 500 meters (each watch is factory-tested to 625 meters), titanium case and bracelet (40% lighter than stainless steel), patented auto-adjusting clasp, TUDOR in-house movement with 70-hour power reserve and COSC-certification, helium escape valve and fully luminescent display.

In Fall 2015, Pelagos was awarded the “Sports Watch” prize at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, coming first in a category that included watches with much higher price points. At this occasion, the Jury of the GPHG, composed of highly-regarded international industry experts, commented that the Pelagos is “perfectly answering sports and diving requirements”.

Pelagos exceeds ISO standard 6245, which defines standards and features for diving watches. In addition to a minimum waterproofness of 100 meters and the presence of an elapsed time controller – the unidirectional rotatable bezel, the standard requires a good legibility of the watch underwater and in low light conditions. The distinctive “snowflake” design with its large hour-markers and hands generously filled with Luminova perfectly answers this last requirement. Also filled with Luminova, the markings on the ceramic bezel of the Pelagos allow for complete legibility in any condition.
