TUDOR Pelagos FXD
The new Tudor Pelagos FXD watch is a tribute to the decades of Tudor watches on the wrists of US Navy divers. The US Navy issued Tudor diving watches for decades from the late 1950s, which were famously used by the SEAL teams till the late 1980s. Complete with fixed strap bars, a 42mm titanium case, a high-performance Manufacture Calibre and a unidirectional elapsed-time rotating bezel, the new Pelagos FXD continues the connection between Tudor and US Navy divers.

As early as the mid ‘50s, TUDOR diving watches were being tested and evaluated by a number of outfits inside the US Navy; by 1958 they were officially adopted by the Navy and purchased for the purpose of issuing them to divers operating in various units. This Pelagos FXD model is the spiritual successor of those watches and represents a modern, high-performance and robust take on the famed “Milsub” (short for Military Submariner) of yesteryear. Visually, it’s most in line with a late ‘60s-era TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner reference 7016; it incorporates elements from the US military specifications for diving watches.
Historically, the US Navy oftentimes had their divers fit their TUDOR watches with fabric straps, typically one-piece straps in black or green made out of nylon. The two straps of the Pelagos FXD nod to this military custom of wearing watches on straps rather than bracelets, with a twist. A one-piece green fabric strap with red central thread and self-gripping fastening system comes as the flagship configuration, while an additional dark grey embossed fabric-motif one-piece rubber strap brings a fresh subtle take to a classic Pelagos look.
