Readability written in capital letters
Probably because the Tudor Pelagos is a diving watch. The thick white bars stand out clearly against the dark background and are therefore still visible even in murky water. The hour markings are also clearly designed in the same way, with the twelve o'clock mark clearly standing out from the other markings due to its arrow shape. The six and nine o'clock positions are marked with white bars, while the less important hour positions are marked with squares of the same width but shorter length. The date is displayed at the three o'clock position. It also has a white background to match the pattern of the markings. However, it is shorter and appears narrower than the nine o'clock bar, attracting attention.
Robust and waterproof
Since its beginnings, Tudor has been a brand for particularly robust watches. So it's not surprising that the Tudor Pelagos is made of durable titanium. Designed for practical use by divers, the Tudor Pelagos is water resistant to a depth of 500 m, or 1,640 ft, and has its own valve for pressure equalization during deep dives. This is also a tradition at Tudor. In the sixties to eighties of the last century, Tudor was among others the watch brand of the US Navy and the French Navy National.
