Tudor claims that the impetus for the creation of the Pelagos LHD was in honor of a few versions they produced in the 1970s for left handed divers in the French Navy. As someone who is left-handed (and dives), I’ve never really considered taking an automatic watch off to end once in a while a major deal, but it is a fantastic point to get watches out there having crowns on either side of the situation. I state this to suggest that the left-handed place of the crown onto the situation does not have any practical value for me, but simply makes the watch somewhat more unique among other Pelagos versions — offering precious character that us see nerds so very much enjoy from the watches we love.Another cosmetic touch on the LHD which I really enjoy is the reddish “Pelagos” text onto the dial. This is really ironic because I lately criticized Rolex to do the same thing about the new Sea-Dweller 126600. I find that the red text for a bit more distracting on the Sea-Dweller, and I also felt that it had been too much of a direct nod to a vintage Sea-Dweller that is valuable now only because it is not as common. The 43mm broad Sea-Dweller is a cool watch for certain, but it doesn’t actually innovate — not as far as the Pelagos. Therefore the red text on the Pelagos isn’t only a bit more visually appealing in my opinion, but also feels like a less clear nod to the past and doesn’t appear to attempt and define the watch as much in the Pelagos since it does the brand new Sea-Dweller. Again, it wouldn’t prevent me from really enjoying the Sea-Dweller, however when it comes to $10,000 plus luxury watches, we are entitled to become exceptionally picky.What also caught my attention with the Pelagos LHD is your beige-colored hour markers, bezel markers, and hands. The off-white look is somewhat easier on the eyes compared to the stark white of the normal Pelagos versions, but keeps an excellent degree of comparison with the black dial — which makes for very good legibility. More so, the combination of black, titanium grey, and beige colours, in my opinion, works together very well.The dial of this Pelagos is really where you can make the most distinction points between it and a Rolex Submariner. The Pelagos dial is very helpful, quite legible, and excellently designed for visibility as a dive watch. The longer one uses a Pelagos, the more I think one comes to love the utility of the dial in many different lighting and reading surroundings.
Having only just signed David Beckham and rugby team the All Blacks, Tudor Watches Portland Replica is adding a third name to its roster of brand ambassadors with Lady Gaga.
Tudor’s partnership with the singer and actress known as much for her music as her unusual sense of style is yet another element of its slow but steady strategy of creating a strong and individual identity for itself, one distinct from that of its much larger parent, Rolex.
Having sold almost 30 million albums, Lady Gaga is one of the world’s most famous musicians, with a strong pull amongst the young (and very young). That’s a different audience from that of Beckham and New Zealand’s All Blacks, illustrating Tudor’s careful segmenting of its ambassadors.
While footballer Beckham got the two-tone Black Bay Steel & Gold, Lady Gaga’s official watch is the classic Black Bay with a red bezel.
