The new Pelagos FXD pays tribute to decades of TUDOR watches on the wrists of US Navy divers. Complete with fixed strap bars, a titanium case, a high-performance Manufacture Calibre and a unidirectional elapsed-time rotating bezel, it comes as the ultimate modern “Milsub”.
The US Navy issued TUDOR diving watches for decades starting in the late ‘50s. The watches were famously used by SEAL teams from their commissioning in 1962 all the way the ‘80s.
Throughout the decades, TUDOR has supported the Navy as a supplier of issued watches. In the 1965 “First Edition” of the Underwater Demolition Team Handbook, a TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner ref. 7928 is pictured next to the “Diving Watch” paragraph.
Watches issued to members of the military are typically engraved with specific inventory codes, but the Navy-issued TUDOR watches didn’t follow this pattern. There was never a force-wide consolidated marking system. Instead, the issued watches were either sterile, or marked at the unit level, with many different coding typologies, most of which were used for inventory purposes.
