The Tudor Pelagos LHD is a very attractive watch that updates a historical category for Tudor, the military tool watch, with a new timepiece that has the crown on the left hand side, so it can be worn on the right wrist.
To me, there are several key attributes of the new Pelagos LHD, and they are:
I am really impressed by the new Pelagos LHD. It continues Tudor’s very successful tradition of honoring its heritage while creating fantastic, versatile, rugged watches.
• The watch has a great vintage design, based on watches Tudor used to make for the military
• There are a ton of detailed design touches, like the beige hands and indices on a deep black dial, the beige markings on the matte black unidirectional bezel, the “roulette” date display (alternating black for odd numbered dates and red for even numbered dates) and the Pelagos name in red on the dial
• The fact that is a numbered edition, in a nod to Tudor’s history, when tool watches were given specific reference numbers
• The watch is powered by a Tudor in-house movement (MT5612-LHD) with a 70 hour power reserve. I am a strong advocate for longer power reserve, and Tudor satisfies.
• The Pelagos LHD comes in a 42mm Titanium case, for lightness
• A true dive watch, the LHD offers 500 meter water resistance, with an automatic helium release valve.
