Tudor Pro Cycling Team gets a new Pelagos FXD model, designed for professionals

The new Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono “Cycling Edition” is ergonomically designed to accompany the cyclists
It was in 2022 when former Swiss professional cyclist and Olympic gold medallist (and winner of world cycling championships) Fabian Cancellara, also the owner of Tudor Pro Cycling Team, joined hands with Tudor to sponsor the team and since then Tudor and Pro Cycling have stayed together. The team also resonates with the brand’s “Born To Dare” campaign launched in 2017. 

Dedicated to the riders of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team, Tudor presents the brand new timepiece, Pelagos FXD Chrono “Cycling Edition”, a self-winding chronograph with a cycling theme, designed with lightness and functionality in mind. Featuring a carbon composite case and a high-performance manufacture calibre, this timepiece reflects the daring spirit of a team that competes in some of the world’s most challenging cycling races, including the Giro d’Italia from 2024.

The Pelagos FXD Chrono Cycling Edition is housed in a 43mm carbon composite case with a black titanium crown and pushers. Attached to a resilient black fabric strap from the French Julien Faure company, it has a matte black finish and is water resistant to 100 metres.

The matte black dial, with red accents, is designed to be highly legible and echoes the colours of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team. The signature square hour-markers and “snowflake” hands, designed by the brand in the 1960s to offer larger luminous surfaces and thus improve legibility, are made of luminescent ceramic composite material for optimal readability in difficult conditions.

A speciality of the watch is the recalibrated tachymeter scale which is printed around the circumference of the dial on a 45° flange, the inner ring of which focuses on the speeds at which cyclists ride.
Inside the case, the self-winding calibre MT5813 is ticking away. This COSC-certified automatic chronograph movement, which features a column-wheel and vertical clutch architecture as well as a silicon hairspring, boasts a comfortable 70-hour power reserve.

The Tudor Pelagos FXD Chrono Cycling Edition is worn on a black, single-piece fabric strap and retails for INR 4,40,000 (approx.)
