In 2012, Tudor and you will be devoted to the vast ocean world. This year, the brand will continue its unique style, introducing two watches that combine elegance and performance. In honour of the brand’s long history, Heritage Black Bay reinterprets watchmaking standards that were influential in the history of diving watches in the 1950s. Pelagos, which combines exquisite craftsmanship and innovation, has a waterproof depth of 500 meters. The sporty design and reliable performance of this watch will meet the requirements of marine and diving enthusiasts. With these two timepieces designed for the ocean, Tudor watches not only show their more than 60 years of traditional craftsmanship, but also creative ideas that draw inspiration from history and create stylish designs. Tudor’s combination of aesthetic design and extraordinary technology is a model of retro fashion.
The new Tudor Pelagos is not only a diving watch, but also a perfect fusion of exquisite craftsmanship and reliable mechanical performance. In addition to showing many classic details of Tudor history, this watch is one of the most representative models of the brand. With its extraordinary watchmaking technology, Tudor makes Pelagos watches embark on the journey of exploring the ocean and further expands a wider field of vision. This remarkable watch comes with a 42 mm diameter case and is water resistant to 500 meters (1640 feet). The case is entirely made of titanium and has been frosted to create a unique luster and rough appearance, which is an aesthetic interpretation of this deep-sea diving watch. The case is equipped with a helium exhaust valve, which helps reduce pressure to prevent damage to the watch. The sharply lined case is next to ‘GAS ESCAPE VALVE’. The matte black ceramic word ring and the unidirectional rotating outer ring of the luminous numerals add a lot of color to the watch. The design of the outer ring is ingenious, which makes the operation easier and easier to read. Even in extreme environments, the eye-catching hour markers and ‘snowflake’ luminous hands ensure clear reading. The special double-layered inner ring makes the triangular, rectangular or square hour markers merge into one body, which is more reminiscent of the brand’s historical models. In addition to its practical, easy-to-read and sturdy features, in addition to stainless steel discounts, the Pelagos watch’s titanium strap is also equipped with a patented automatic adjustment spring device developed by Tudor. With this extraordinary system, even if the diving suit shrinks with increasing depth and pressure, the strap can be tightened automatically; on the contrary, when the diver returns to the surface, the diving suit expands as the water depth pressure decreases, and the strap will change. It’s looser. Tudor’s Pelagos series also includes a rubber strap with an extensible system, which is convenient for users to adjust when wearing a diving suit. This new watch pays tribute to the sea, diving swimmers and marine protectors. Pelagos is a sturdy, reliable and high-performance sports watch with a water resistance of 500 meters, allowing Tudor to create new milestones in the field of diving timepieces.
