Technical Features of Tudor Pelagos
It is hard to maintain an extreme level of innovative features within a single module design. Pelagos somehow managed it, a full-package diving watch by the brand. Let’s check out what are the innovative features embedded within this timepiece.
It ensures an extreme level of water resistance so that it can be worn at higher altitudes under-water. It can with-stand 500 meters which are 1640 ft. The case is so much detailed and sealed that a drop of water can’t get inside within the range of resistance level, usually, these timepieces have more ability to withstand water-level than it specifies.
This timepiece is powered by MT5612, a caliber certified by COSC. It ensures the optimal precision of its mechanism so it keeps its optimum condition even in higher pressure and shocks. It also features a power reserve of up to 70-hours. It is a multi-functional caliber that provides hour, minute and second functions, and also features a date complication at 3 o’clock.
Helium Gas Escape Valve:
In addition to a higher water resistance level, this timepiece also features a helium escape valve at the side of the timepiece — a rare feature found on some of the diving watches also embedded within it. This gas escape valve provides the functionality to the diver to operate at higher depths undersaturation.
Pelagos also features an auto-adjustable spring mechanism which is a useful feature for the divers, so the clasp can be auto-adjusted during the diving, while pressure gets higher it contracts and extends at a lower pressure. So, the person wearing it will have comfortable diving experience. The rubber strap is also equipped with an extension system that makes it easy to adjust the watch on your wrist.
It represents a full luminescent display. The lumiNova material is covered all over on the numeral’s hour, minute, and second marker even on the bezel. The markers on the bezels are filled with the lumiNova material to increase the level of readability. So, it has a higher rate of legibility even in the dark when deep down in the ocean, so that diver will not get a second to miss in making a dive.
This timepiece is designed to withstand extreme depths not only a single dive but can withstand multiple-dives. It was also seen on many high-profile personalities like Morgan Bourc’his, a professional athlete and master of scuba diving.
