Swiss watch brand TUDOR conquers the heart of ocean adventurers by launching Pelagos, a superb deep sea instrument timepiece that has a mind-blowing water resistance of 500 metres (1640 feet).
TUDOR Pelagos, a perfect example for the alliance between of technology and innovation, comes in a Titanium case measuring 42 mm diameter and completely satin-finished.
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. It is enhanced by a unidirectional rotatable bezel, with a matt black ceramic disc and luminescent numerals, which 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 double-bevelled flange around the dial incorporates the triangular, rectangular or square hour marker appliques – a reminder of the brand’s historical models. Practical, highly legible and sturdy, the Pelagos model is further distinguished by its titanium bracelet with a folding steel clasp fitted with a unique spring-loaded self-adjusting mechanism’ developed and patented by TUDOR.
Thanks to this remarkable, technically accomplished system, the bracelet adjusts during diving, contracting in deep water when the diving suit is compressed and its volume is reduced, and, conversely, expanding as the pressure eases during the ascent.
TUDOR’s Pelagos also comes on a rubber strap with an extension system enabling it to be worn easily over a diving suit.
