The Pelagos from Tudor is their most important line of diving watches, offering consumers with all of the utility they might ever want. For 2022, the model has launched an up to date, 39mm model of their now iconic diver in titanium.

The Pelagos has a black dial with a ceramic bezel with utilized lume to match the glowing indications of the dial. In comparison with earlier variations of the Pelagos, this one lacks a date window which I’m all for. Additionally, the markers, which was partially recessed into the interior bezel, have now emerged totally onto the dial. It appears the paragraph of textual content that Tudor (and Rolex) likes to placed on its dials is much less apparent than earlier than, too. Regardless of its utilitarian design, the Pelagos isn’t fully with out thrills. For instance, the dial has a sunray end to it, so there’s extra visible pizazz than the flat blacks of previous.
Powering the watch is Tudor’s calibre MT5400. It’s a self-winding calibre with a 70-hour energy reserve, 4Hz beat charge and non-magnetic steadiness spring, so properly in step with the fashionable calibres of right now. Tudor doesn’t make these in-house themselves, however the MT5400 is their motion for his or her watches.
