Tudor has dropped a new Pelagos model in association with the French Navy or Marine Nationale, an association that goes back 65 years.

The 42mm titanium watch has been developed using specifications laid down by the force’s combat swimmers, Commando Hubert.

The watch’s bidirectional rotating bezel – which features a sandblasted ceramic ring and overhangs the sides of the case for better grip – allows the unit’s swimmers to navigate underwater undetected, while the FXD is a reference to the solid looped lugs that hold the fabric strap in place without the need for separate springbars.

While not a service issue watch, the new Pelagos FXD carries the same M.N. initials engraved on the caseback along with a 21, denoting a year of issue.

While the French Navy historically had Tudor deliver its watches without bracelets, the Pelagos FXD – which is water resistant to 200m – is supplied with both a woven fabric strap and a one-piece rubber strap.

Out now, the Pelagos FXD is available via Tudor, priced £2,920 (approximately $3,922 USD).

Elsewhere in watches, someone just spent $100,000 USD on a watch box.
