You can read our review, as well as a few others right here on their special dedicated page.Also, be sure to see our video review of the Pelagos in the top of the page.I was hooked on the Tudor Watches Leather Strap Replica Pelagos LHD watch the very first time I watched it in person. This review will be mostly very positive because I simply have a lot of good things to say about this timepiece. If Tudor errs, I’m happy to point out it, and regularly “check” the brand when I feel that its marketing or product design choices are not on par with what the brand deserves. When Tudor gets it however, they produce something like the Pelagos LHD, that will be a truly phenomenal contemporary diving sport watch.Let’s first talk a little about the contemporary history of this Pelagos and how the Pelagos LHD fits to the Tudor Pelagos family, which contains a couple of models. Simply speaking, the Tudor Pelagos LHD differs from the “standard” Pelagos models in mostly superficial ways — but meaningful ways. In the event the standard Pelagos is the awesome, modern dive watch with a no-nonsense stance of design and functionality, then the Pelagos LHD is your slightly quirkier model for seasoned enthusiasts that delivers all the exact same functionality and usefulness as the normal Pelagos, but using only a bit more personality.Tudor initially introduced the Pelagos dip watch collection in 2013 (aBlogtoWatch review). To call the opinion really modern is a bit of a misnomer because Tudor certainly pulled a great deal of design language from its past. Tudor and Rolex are part of the identical base, and it has long since been clear that Tudor is the slightly more risk-welcoming arm of the group, and of course provides cheaper watches. Individuals often thought of this Pelagos as the contemporary Submariner. In a lot of real manners they’re competitors, even though the Submariner at retail could be about twice as much money. There needs to be Rolex premium after all.
Bucherer is Europe’s largest watch retailer (and the biggest seller of Rolex timepieces), with almost 30 stores and estimated annual sales of over SFr1.5 billion (about US$1.5 billion), giving it considerable clout. For its 130th anniversary in 2018, the chain has debuted a series of special edition wristwatches made by a variety of brands – from Audemars Piguet to Zenith – all characterised by dials in dark blue, the firm’s corporate colour.
The latest to join the band of blue watches is Tudor Watches Nylon Strap Replica with the Heritage Black Bay Bronze Blue, a variant of its bestselling bronze dive watch. Both the dial and bezel are a dark blue, darker than the shade found on the Pelagos in blue, but similar to the bezel on the Black Bay with a blue bezel.
The case back is also engraved with the Swiss retailer’s logo and 1888, the year it was founded in Lucerne.
The rest of the watch is identical to the standard edition – the aluminium-bronze case is 43mm in diameter with a slightly domed sapphire crystal. It’s equipped with the in-house calibre MT5601, a COSC-certified automatic with a silicon hairspring and 70-hour power reserve.
Like the other Tudor Heritage watches, the Bronze Blue is delivered on two straps: a dark blue canvas NATO-style band, as well as a distressed leather strap.
