Tudor Pelagos FXD Strap Guide by WATCHBANDIT

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 at 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, about what the manufacturer will come up with next, Tudor presented a special dive watch, which has been designed with direct input from the French Marine Nationale’s combat divers. An important and enjoyable fact is that it is not a limited edition.

The integrated lugs make the FXD something very special and safe to wear!

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 the 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 the 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 with the best WB Original strap options.

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 does not bulk out much, like on a watch with conventional lugs. This makes the watch look nicely flat and very comfortable.

    Good afternoon,
    Been an avid reader of those straps guides!
    Great work, keep it up!
    I have to bring up something though (that kind of break my heart as a Frenchman), the Pelagos FXD MN has been a collaboration with the FRENCH navy (Marine Nationale) not the Italian one. In Italian by the way the name of its navy is Marina Militare (MM).

    1. Chris says:
