Today on the podcast, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, and Zach Kazan sit down to talk about what is unquestionably one of the biggest watch releases of the year: the Tudor Pelagos FXD. What is the FXD? Well, if this were Wheel of Fortune, and you bought a few vowels, the “fixed” theme of the watch comes into focus. This iteration of the Pelagos had been the topic of much speculation in recent months as leaks began to hit social media, and the fixed lug bars, unusual bi-directional bezel, and notably thinner case profile offer something genuinely new in the Pelagos line. We walk through this watch’s unique backstory, its connection to the Marine Nationale, and the extremely niche type of diving it was designed for.
Later in the podcast, the team talks about some other recent releases of note, including a limited edition Nomos Club 36, and the latest from Benrus. If we missed any of your favorite releases from the last few weeks, be sure to let us know what’s caught your eye in the comments below.
