Tudor Pelagos: weekend watch

Tudor Pelagos

The new Tudor Pelagos is called LHD, which stands for ‘Left Hand Drive’. In other words, a ‘lefty’ that can be worn on the right wrist. Or on the left wrist, for those who don’t appreciate a crown imprint in their left hand. The Pelagos is the titanium diver’s watch with a water resistance of 500m that is the modern counterpart to the retro Black Bay.

However, this new Pelagos does have decided retro touches. For example, the bezel and dial now have beige, luminescent elements and the name at 6 o’clock, written in red, is also a reference to vintage divers from the Tudor stable. Inside the titanium case everything is modern. A very robust chronometer MT5612 calibre with silicone balance spring, built in the company’s own factory, guarantees a 70-hour power reserve. The user can take off the watch on Friday and forget all about it until Monday morning.

Although, taking off the Pelagos LHD just before a weekend full of action would seem to be a strange thing to do in the case of this robust instrument; after all, isn’t it the perfect weekend watch?
