Tudor launches special "cycling edition" Pelagos FXD for the Giro d'Italia

Introducing the Pelagos FXD Chrono “Cycling Edition”, crafted specifically for the TUDOR Pro Cycling Team. This cycling-themed chronograph, designed for lightweight performance, features a carbon composite case and a high-performance Manufacture Calibre. With a focus on durability and functionality, it embodies the daring spirit of professional cycling.

Professional cycling isn’t for the faint of heart. Riders’ bodies and minds are pushed to the absolute limit with every pedal stroke, Tudor states, not to mention the incredible danger of the sport. A watch engineered with professional cycling in mind needs to stand up to the extreme demands of the sport, while being easy for the rider to operate. It’s no secret that the fastest bikes are made of carbon fibre, and that’s why TUDOR opted for carbon composite for the case of the new chronograph designed with daring riders in mind. The implementation of titanium elements help make the watch necessarily robust, as it will certainly face the unpredictable conditions presented by cycling.

It’s not only the durability of the watch that was considered during its design phase. It’s also meant to be useful to riders while they’re putting in time on the bike. It’s typical for the tachymetric scale of a chronograph to be calibrated to the speeds an automobile is capable of; indeed, many TUDOR chronographs feature a scale typically associated with motorsport. What makes the “Cycling Edition” special is that the scale is presented in a way that’s suited for the speeds that cyclists can sustain. The chronograph scale is “wrapped” around the dial in a spiral, allowing the average speeds that cyclists routinely operate at to be read at a glance. The tachymeter function on the Pelagos FXD Chrono “Cycling Edition” has been specifically designed for cycling.

Key Features of the new Pelagos FXD:

  1. 43mm black carbon composite case with fixed strap bars
  2. Fixed bezel with 60-minute graduation
  3. Cycling-specific tachymeter scale on dial
  4. Luminescent ceramic composite monobloc hour markers
  5. Manufacture Calibre MT5813 with silicon hairspring and 70-hour power reserve
  6. "Snowflake" hands with Grade X1 Swiss Super-LumiNova®
  7. One-piece technical fabric strap in black

Designed for professional cyclists, the watch's matte black dial ensures legibility, with red accents reflecting the team colors. The tachymeter scale, calibrated for cycling speeds, is presented in a spiral format for easy reading.

The watch comes with a single-piece fabric strap for comfort during rides, woven with precision in France.

Powered by the Manufacture Calibre MT5813, it boasts a 70-hour power reserve and COSC certification for accuracy.

Crafted at the TUDOR Manufacture in Le Locle, Switzerland, every watch undergoes rigorous testing to ensure quality.

TUDOR's commitment to durability and precision is reflected in its five-year guarantee, a testament to its "Born To Dare" spirit.
