3 Things To Know About The Tudor Pelagos

By Victor Toth

It was at Baselworld 2015 that Tudor revealed the updated Pelagos, both the 25600TN in black and 25600TB in blue. Originally introduced in 2012, the Tudor Pelagos features a titanium case with a more than ample 500 meters of water resistance and wonderful legibility. Now, three years after the Pelagos made its debut, we take a look at the three key attributes of this fantastic dive watch that you should absolutely know about.

The latest generation Pelagos has an all-new, in-house movement boasting superior performance. Tudor now equips all Pelagos models with its MT5612 manufacture caliber, replacing the ETA 2824-2 movement found in previous versions. The MT5612 boasts 70 hours of power reserve (about 50% more than its ETA counterpart) and is also now COSC chronometer certified, meaning the movement is tested to run between -4 to +6 seconds per day.

Second, there are tweaks to the dial. The original black dial is still present, but now features four lines of text at six oclock that refers to the COSC chronometer certification – in-the-know watch lovers will be able to differentiate ETA and in-house movement equipped Tudor Pelagos models. Furthermore, Tudor released a matte blue dialed alternative as well, with a matching matte blue ceramic bezel, a colour inspired by vintage Tudor dive watches.

Lastly, the Pelagos is equipped with a handy adjustable clasp on the titanium bracelet, a feature already found on the first generation. This allows for a perfect fit on the wrist in hot and cold alike, with an additional diver extension also hidden inside the clasp. 

All in all, with a new in-house movement, some stunning and indeed very sharp looking dials, plus a comfortable rubber strap or titanium bracelet option, the Tudor Pelagos is a terrific alternative to its bigger brother, the Rolex Submariner.

The MT5612 manufacture caliber boasts 70 hours of power reserve and is also COSC chronometer certified.
