$5,925

Pre-Owned Tudor 42mm Pelagos FXD, Blue Dial, Blue Rubber Strap, Ref. M25707B/21

The Pelagos FXD model, where FXD refers to the fixed strap bars of the case, was designed in collaboration with the Marine National (French Navy) and is designed for underwater navigation, with purposeful intention first, and aesthetic second. The blue bi-directional rotating bezel with ceramic insert was designed as a tool for navigation purpose rather than your typical dive watch which has a uni-directional rotating bezel designed to measure air supply. With the 42mm case being made of monobloc titanium, the watch is more water resistant since there are less ways for water to enter the case and potentially do harm. Powering this Pelagos FXD is Tudors in house self winding MT5602 caliber movement with COSC certification and a 70 hour power reserve. Attached is a navy blue rubber strap with a titanium buckle. Included is an additional navy blue fabric strap with grey central thread.

Description

Since 1936 when Hans Wilsdorf acquired the Tudor name, Tudor watches have been associated with Rolex.  Even with the launch of Tudor as a separate company in 1946, Rolex continued to play a major role that reflected Hans Wilsdorf’s vision of a brand that would be more modestly priced than a Rolex but still maintain the high standard of dependability.  Tudor’s first models, such as the 1952 Oyster Prince had features unique to the Tudor brand but still were based on Rolex components, primarily the Oyster case.  This successful relationship continued with the Tudor Advisor alarm watch and the Tudor dive watch that was introduced only a few months after the introduction of the Rolex Submariner.

With the second generation of the Tudor dive watch, Tudor began to further define itself as a unique brand.  The French Navy requested a modification to enhance underwater legibility, which led to the now-iconic “snowflake” hands, with a larger square on the hour hand to easily distinguish it from the minute hand.  Also, the logo was changed from the previous Tudor Rose to the Tudor Shield that we recognize in a modern Tudor watch.  Around this same time, Tudor introduced its first chronograph named Oysterdate, which had a strong graphic and unique design, which still attracts fans with the modern reissued watch.

Near the beginning of the new century, Tudor ceased sales in the USA due to a lower demand.  When Tudor returned in 2013 with design elements from their historical models that also included larger cases, in-house movements and modern materials, watch aficionados embraced Hans Wilsdorf’s founding desire, to manufacture an affordable watch with high standards.   Tudor continues to be associated with Rolex, but with its own unique collections, Tudor has made a place of its own among watch enthusiasts.
