In a remote area, high in the Alps, French freediving champion Morgan Bourc’his gets out of his comfort zone, by exploring waters under the ice, in the extreme cold with almost no light. He is a specialist in unassisted and equipment-free diving, considered to be the purest and most demanding of all diving forms. His one instrument, which never shies away from extreme conditions, is his TUDOR Pelagos.
TUDOR has a long history of making cutting-edge and robust diving watches that are used widely by amateur and professional divers. The TUDOR Pelagos is the ultimate traditional diver’s watch. Its impressive list of technical features includes waterproofness to 500 meters, titanium case and bracelet (40% lighter than stainless steel), patented auto-adjusting clasp, Manufacture Calibre MT5612 with 70-hour power reserve and COSC-certification, helium escape valve and fully luminescent display. Also filled with Luminova, the markings on the ceramic rotatable bezel of the Pelagos allow for complete legibility, even in the dark waters of a high-mountain lake in the middle of the winter.
In 2015, Pelagos was awarded the “Sports Watch” prize at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, reinforcing the Pelagos’s position as one of the most complete traditional mechanical diver’s watches available today.
