    Baselworld 2015: Tudor Pelagos, in-house caliber and emblematic blue

    The TUDOR Pelagos is undoubtedly the most complete tool watch on the market, one that is true to its history, which is populated by professionals toiling in a marine environment. Along with the North Flag line, the 2015 version of the Pelagos is the first to include a TUDOR-made caliber. Needless to say, this in-house movement was conceived right from the start for use in a vast array of timepieces. The techno-professional finishing leans strongly in favor of matt and, though large sanded surfaces, expresses functional values that are also visible in the watch's aesthetics.

    This technical update of the TUDOR Pelagos, which comes in a new combination of colors for the dial, bezel and rubber bracelet, will inevitably elevate all other models of the family to the rank of collector's item for the savvy investor. The original matt black is now joined by a version in matt blue that connects emblematically back to the TUDOR diver's watches of the late 1960s. It's the color reserved for the frogmen of the French navy. In addition to PELAGOS, the dial also mentions "CHRONOMETER OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED." The watch is waterproof to 500 meters thanks to a helium escape valve, which regulates decompressions from alternating deep-sea dives and periods in the chamber.

    With the Pelagos, emphasis was placed on readability, since the diver's life depends on it under water. Lots of luminous material was used and contrasts were heightened. The blue luminescence is crucial, since it is the last color frequency distinguishable by the human eye deep under water. And any confusion between the hour and minute hands was eliminated by using the dial and hands configuration known as the "snowflake," which first appeared in 1969. The unidirectionally rotating titanium bezel, a lighter material that is more resistant to salt water, features a ceramic disc with luminescent markers. As maximum technicity demands, the bracelet features a patented folding clasp with an auto-adjustable spring mechanism to optimize the fit on the wrist if and when pressure varies. The second bracelet supplied with each timepiece also boasts an ingenious extension system that is easy to use.

    YES YES and YES! This is epic and the price point staying close to the current gen, brilliant move. I cant wait for this to hit the market. I just wish they couldve fought the urge to print so much text like Rolex, but it goes with the family I guess.

    In one day, Tudor went from being a very questionable value for money proposition to being a potentially very good value for money proposition. The brand definitely has my attention...

    I had never looked too closely at the Pelagos...but then I saw this blue and now I'm staring. What a striking dial.

    I like it and agree on a cleaner dial. Does anyone know if the entire movement is made from scratch or is it an improved ETA?
