Tudor's diving heritage can be divided into two main chapters. On one side, you'll find the distinctly retro-inspired Black Bay series, while on the other side, there's the more professionally-oriented Pelagos collection. Both of these lines have garnered a devoted following due to their exceptional performance. However, in an unexpected turn of events, Tudor unveiled a unique rendition of the Pelagos known as the Pelagos FXD two years ago.This timepiece paid homage to the watches previously utilized by Combat divers and was created in collaboration with the Marine Nationale, the French Navy. It featured fixed lugs and a distinctive inverted diving scale on the bidirectional bezel. Fast forward to the present and Tudor is now introducing a fresh interpretation of the Pelagos FXD in a sleek black color scheme and equipped with a standard bezel design.The 42mm case is made of titanium with a solid steel caseback. Mounted to the case is a titanium unidirectional rotating bezel with a black ceramic insert that features a 60-minute graduation. This bezel differs from the previous Pelagos which had a bidirectional rotating bezel that allowed divers to follow successive stages during dives.It also comes equipped with a screw-down titanium crown adorned with the Tudor shield in relief, while protected by a pair of guards and screws that further guarantee its watertight construction.This model usually gets compared to the vintage Rolex Submariner, due to its overall design. But its own unique embellishments inspired by the Marine Nationale, French Navy, give it a strong military appeal. It also comes with fixed (FXD) bar lugs typically seen on vintage military dive watches. Thus forming one single piece with the case, which provides a reinforced connection between the case and strap. Water-resistance can reach up to 200m (660 feet).Time is exhibited on a matte black dial with a mixture of squared, rectangular hour index markers, and a singular triangular mark at the 12 o’clock position; while a ring of smaller white printed minute markers circle around a sloped flange.Just like the previous “Tudor Pelagos FXD” this one has also excluded the date aperture, which makes it the second time a Pelagos has been designed without it since 2012 when it first debuted. And just like before due to this modification the Pelagos FXD version is 1.5mm thinner than the standard model.Other than that alteration what we have here is the same solid, reliable, easily readable layout we’ve grown accustomed to expect by Tudor.The central “snowflake” style hands, hour index markers, and bezel indications have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
