Are you planning your next holiday to the beaches? Which watch is going to make it as your travel buddy? Well haven’t you heard, Tudor Pelagos 39 will surely take that place.
In terms of aesthetics, the watch maintains true to the Pelagos family’s established language. On the other hand, Tudor made several adjustments to the design that set it apart from the rest of the family. A closer inspection of the brand new Tudor Pelagos 39 is in order.
A Genuine Tool Watch
The Tudor Pelagos line is a range of genuine tool watches. The wristbands and cases are polished titanium. The clock and bezel were designed with legibility in mind. As the name implies, crown guards are there to keep the crown from getting banged up. Furthermore, a diver’s extender is useful when the watch needs to be worn over a wetsuit. Now available in a 39mm case size, which is “technical diving and urban sophistication” ready, as per Tudor’s assessment.
The newcomer has the same tried-and-true mechanical diver’s watch qualities that have made this family so popular, albeit in a larger case. The watch is distinguished by its black dial with luminescent ceramic composite monobloc attached hour markers and a set of iconic “Snowflake” hands.
The 39mm case is completely crafted out of grade 2 titanium and has a satin finish. Not only does it have the crown guards typical of the Pelagos dynasty, but it also has the family crest. Next, we have the fantastically grippable black ceramic inlay around the bezel. It now comes in a sunburst satin finish as opposed to the previously available plain matte 41mm models. Super-LumiNova lights are installed throughout for excellent visibility in any environment, including the deep sea. Looks like the much-spoken dial has the no-date layout to give off an air of metropolitan sophistication.
Comfort on your wrists
Two interchangeable straps, one rubber, and one titanium are included with the Tudor Pelagos 39. The T-fit clasp has an 8-millimeter adjustment range, so you can easily change the length on the fly. Moreover, the bracelet may be lengthened by an additional 25mm with the help of its dive extender. The Tudor Pelagos 39 comes with a bracelet and a black rubber strap at no extra cost.
The rubber band is secured to the watch case by means of titanium end links, and the buckle is also made of titanium. An extra rubber extension piece allows you to customize the fit of the bracelet to your wrist, and the same goes for the strap. This time, it’s so the watch may be worn over a wetsuit. We love that Tudor provides a rubber strap as standard equipment, right from the bat, you have two fantastic ways to rock the timepiece.
The Pelagos 39 is powered with the self-winding Calibre MT5400 movement from the Manufacture. A variable inertia balance is supported by a durable traversing bridge that is fastened at two points to assure its durability, lifespan, dependability, and accuracy. This balance, along with the non-magnetic silicon balance spring, allowed the movement to accumulate a power reserve of around 70 hours, allowing it to pass the stringent standards required to receive a COSC chronometer certificate.
The name of the Pelagos 39 is written in red at six o’clock, giving the dial a splash of color. Our opinion is that it greatly enhances the watch’s sporty vibe. At a price of INR 3,36,000, this watch appears to have it all. What are your thoughts?
