Tudor Tackles the Long Road with the Pelagos FXD Chrono Cycling Edition | WatchTime

Dedicated to the riders of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team, Tudor presents the brand new Pelagos FXD: a self-winding chronograph with a cycling theme, designed with lightness and functionality in mind. Featuring a carbon composite case and a high-performance manufacture caliber, this timepiece reflects the daring spirit of a team that competes in some of the world’s most challenging cycling races, including the Giro d’Italia from 2024.

The Pelagos FXD Chrono Cycling Edition is housed in a 43mm carbon composite case with a black titanium crown and pushers. Attached to a resilient black fabric strap from the French Julien Faure company, it has a matte black finish and is water resistant to 100 meters.

The matte black dial, with red accents, is designed to be highly legible and echoes the colors of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team. The signature square hour-markers and “snowflake” hands, designed by the brand in the 1960s to offer larger luminous surfaces and thus improve legibility, are made of luminescent ceramic composite material for optimal readability in difficult conditions.

A speciality of the watch is the recalibrated tachymeter scale which is printed around the circumference of the dial on a 45° flange, the inner ring of which focuses on the speeds at which cyclists ride.

Inside the case, the self-winding caliber MT5813 is ticking away. This COSC-certified automatic chronograph movement, which features a column-wheel and vertical clutch architecture as well as a silicon hairspring, boasts a comfortable 70-hour power reserve.

The Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono Cycling Edition is worn on a black, single-piece fabric strap and retails for $5,275.
