If you love stylish dive watches, limited edition collectibles, and just so happen to be left-handed- today is your lucky day. Tudor, the little brother arm of Rolex, just announced a stunning limited edition Pelagos with a winding stem on the left side.
On top of adding the in-house MT5612 caliber movement, it features a few design choices not available in the regular model. The word "Pelagos" and date are both in red and it now has beige luminescent markings, giving it a beautifully vintage-inspired look, more closely resembling the 1970s French dive watch that inspired it.
Each timepiece is also individually numbered on the case back. Tudor didn't reveal how many they plan to make, but don't expect many. These will go fast and will be available at authorized dealers as early as 11/18/16, so get in touch with your watch guy ASAP if you're already drooling over this.
Though there are many subtle, impressive changes to the watch, its original titanium bracelet, also included with the original Pelagos, might be the coolest aspect.
For those unfamiliar, the unique bracelet has this amazing auto-adjustable spring mechanism developed and patented by Tudor. This lets you adjust the bracelet with ease- like you would a NATO or leather strap. Need to fit it over your dive suit? Bam. Blisteringly hot day and your wrist is swelling up? Let's get it comfortable. It's truly a game changer and something we hope Tudor adds to more of its collection in the future.
Priced at $4,400, this is an excellent, relatively affordable luxury dive watch for the tasteful set. If you love limited examples and sporty, classic timepieces that aren't too flashy- get this thing on your wrist.
