The Tudor FXD is a high-performance dive watch made of titanium, that was first introduced in 2021. It’s part of Tudor’s Pelagos collection, which is known for its modern and technical designs. The FXD, however, takes things to the next level with its cutting-edge technology and innovative features. Let’s take a closer look on this new diver from Switzerland in this article.
What is the Tudor FXD?
When Tudor officially introduced the Tudor Pelagos FXD Ref. 25707B, the watch-fam and Tudor fan-base were frantic. After a lot of speculation, what the manufacturer will come up with next, Tudor presented a special dive watch, which has been designed with direct input from the Italian Marine Nationale’s combat divers. An important and enjoyable fact is that it is not a limited edition.
One of the most striking things about the Tudor FXD is its overall design. The watch has a bold, technical look, with a darker blue dial than the regular Pelagos, that’s sure to turn heads of every dive enthusiast. Its case is made from high-grade titanium, which is both lightweight and incredibly durable. The dial features bold, luminescent markers and hands, making it easy to read even in low-light conditions and during a deep dive.
Furthermore, and probably the most important fact, the watch features integrated lugs, which are important for our strap choices we present you in this article. That’s also why it’s named “FXD”, which stands for the “F(i)X(e)D” strap (bars).
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what makes the Tudor FXD such a special timepiece, explore some of its key features and present you the best WB Original strap options.
Tudor Pelagos FXD Strap Guide
As we have now learned, the Tudor FXD has very special bars for the strap, as these are firmly integrated with the lugs and case, “made of one piece” so to speak. This means that only pull-through straps, such as classic- or single-pass NATOs can be used on this model and no two-piece watch straps. The low-set integrated lug-bars keep the strap very close to your wrist, and the strap is not bulking out much, like on a watch with conventional lugs. This makes the watch wear nicely flat and very comfortable.
