The new watch’s titanium case is 3mm smaller than previous versions of the Pelagos and continues to use stainless steel caseback.
The watch is slimmer too as it uses the Tudor Calibre 5400 found inside the Black Bay Fifty Eight, rather than the Calibre 5612 used by original Pelagos models. While Tudor haven’t issued the comparative thicknesses, the scaling down appears proportional.
The movement offers a ‘weekend proof’ 70-hour power reserve and COSC certification, although it exceeds the chronometer standard with -2/+4 seconds a day accuracy.
As expected from a smaller watch, water resistance is down from 500m to 200m and the helium escape valve is no longer required. The smaller dial also benefits from four rather than five lines of text.
The Pelagos 39’s titanium bracelet features Tudor’s T-fit clasp allowing for five fine-adjustment positions over 8mm, as well as a 25mm bracelet extension for wetsuits. The watch is also supplied with a black rubber strap.
The Pelagos 39 is available now via Tudor retailers, priced $4,400 USD and £3,500 GBP in the UK.
