A magnificent example of a tool watch and symbol of adventure, the Pelagos is one of the most complete traditional mechanical divers’ watches available today. Waterproof to 500 m (1,640 ft), the Pelagos is fitted with TUDOR Manufacture Calibre. It is now available in a new “left-handed” version.
MODEL FEATURES “SNOWFLAKE” HANDS
The hands of the Pelagos, particularly the hour hand with its characteristic square tip, allow the wearer to distinguish it from the minute hand, at a glance. Known in collectors’ circles as “snowflake”, this feature is emblematic of TUDOR divers’ watches from 1969 onwards.
MODEL FEATURES HELIUM ESCAPE VALVE
The Tudor Pelagos is guaranteed to a depth of 500 metres and is equipped with a helium escape valve, an essential device for preserving the watch during so-called “saturation” dives.
As the helium atom is the smallest gas particle in existence, after a certain amount of time it is able to penetrate the interior of the watch despite its waterproofness. The helium escape valve allows the gas to escape freely from the watch without damaging it, thus protecting it from overpressure.
MODEL FEATURES LUMINOUS MARKERS
The ceramic disc of the titanium unidirectional rotating bezel features luminous markers that allow for all information to be read even in extreme conditions of low visibility.
MODEL FEATURES PATENTED AUTO-ADJUSTABLE BUCKLE
The Pelagos stands out with its titanium bracelet featuring a steel folding clasp with a unique auto-adjustable spring mechanism developed and patented by TUDOR.
This technical system allows the bracelet to be adjusted during the dive, contracting when the combination is compressed at greater depths, and expanding when the pressure decreases again during the diver’s return to the surface. An additional rubber strap is also provided, equipped with an extension system that makes it easily adjustable for all diving conditions.
THE TUDOR MANUFACTURE CALIBRE MT5612
The Pelagos is powered with the new TUDOR Manufacture calibre MT5612 movement, providing impressive autonomy. Its power reserve of approximately 70 hours means that its wearer can, for example, take off the watch on Friday evening and put it on again on Monday morning without having to wind it. In addition to the hour, minute and central second functions, it provides an instant date display visible through an aperture positioned at 3 o’clock.
Beating to a frequency of 28,800 beats/hour or 4Hz, this movement is regulated by a variable inertia oscillator with silicon balance spring, held in place by a traversing bridge fixed at both sides to improve resistance to shocks and vibrations. Its self-winding system is bidirectional. The movement is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
