A Compact & Versatile Diving Watch: Introducing the TUDOR Pelagos 39

A sports watch that boasts both cutting-edge watchmaking technology and a chic aesthetic, as at ease in the city as on the shore, the new TUDOR Pelagos 39 model combines TUDOR's professional dive watch heritage with the versatility of a 39-millimetre case, and the striking radiance of sunray satin finishes on its bezel and dial.

Featuring grade 2 titanium, luminescent ceramic composite monobloc hour markers, a rapid adjustment system for the clasp and a diver's extension, the Pelagos 39 model joins the TUDOR family of technical diver's watches, with a versatile, complementary design. 

While the Pelagos, Pelagos LHD and Pelagos FXD models perpetuate a purely technical aquatic heritage, offering functions specific to highly specialised and relatively nice professional dives, the Pelagos 39 is a compact and versatile, traditional mechanical diver's watch, with a touch of elegance created by the shine of sunray satin finishes on its dial and the insert on the bezel.

Matt-Shiny Contrast

Achieved through an entirely satin-brushed case in line with this TUDOR product family, the aesthetic balance of the Pelagos 39 artfully contrasts with the radiance of its bezel insert. Made of black ceramic with an enhanced sunray satin finish, the diameter of the bezel slightly exceeds the middle case for maximum grip, and features a graduated scale in white luminous material.

The applied hour markers on the dial are made of monobloc luminescent ceramic composite, a feature that enhances the technical aesthetics, whilst considerably increasing the luminous surface of the hour markers. The dial is made up of two main elements, a sunray satin finish flat disc whose subtle shine contrasts with the matt finished of the 45° conical bead-blasted flange. Last but not least, the name "Pelagos" stands out in glossy cherry red at 6 o'clock, disrupting the model's two-tone colour palette.

Manufacture Calibre MT5400

With its construction designed to ensure robustness, longevity, reliability and precision, due to its variable inertia balance, which is held in place by a sturdy traversing bridge with two points of fixation, the TUDOR Pelagos 39 model is equipped with a Manufacture Calibre MT5400 movement.

Thanks to this balance and the non-magnetic silicon balance spring, the Manufacture Calibre MT5400 has been certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), with its performance going beyond the standards set by this independent institute. In fact, where COSC allows an average variation in the daily running of a watch of between -4 and +6 seconds in relation to absolute time in a single movement, TUDOR insists on between -2 and +4 seconds' variation in its running when it is completely assembled.

Another notable feature is that the power reserve of the Manufacture Calibre MT5400 is "weekend-proof", about 70 hours, which enables the wearer to take the watch off on a Friday evening, and put it back on again on Monday morning, without having to wind it.

Titanium Bracelet & Rubber Strap

The TUDOR Pelagos 39 is supplier with an entirely satin-brushed titanium bracelet that is equipped with the TUDOR "T-fit" clasp for rapid length adjustment. Easy to use, requiring no tools and offering five positions, this instant, fine-adjustment system allows the wearer to alter the total length of the bracelet along an adjustment window of 8 millimetres. The clasp also has a 25 millimetre bracelet extension function to allow the watch to be worn over a wetsuit.

Also included in the box is a second strap made of black rubber, with a titanium pin buckle that attaches to the case with titanium end links, and an additional rubber extension piece that makes it possible to lengthen the strap even further, by up to 110 millimetres.

A Bridge Between Land & Sea

The history of the TUDOR diver's watch dates back to 1954 with the launch of reference 7922. Waterproof to 100m, it was the first born in a long line of dive watches. Affordable, robust, reliable and precise, it perfectly represented the brand's tool watch philosophy. 

The seven decades following its introduction have witness the constant improvement of TUDOR diver's watches and them gaining acclaim from professionals in the field, including some of the world's greatest military navies.

Today, the TUDOR Pelagos 39 forms the bridge between land and sea, meeting all the ISO standards for diver's watches, with versatility and enhanced aesthetic touches.
