A Bracelet Woven In The French Navy’s Heritage
Historically, the French Navy had TUDOR watches delivered without bracelets and then fitted them with their own handmade straps made from parachute elastic. The fabric strap of the Pelagos FXD pays tribute to these ultra-functional relics, inextricably linked to French military divers.
Woven in France by the Julien Faure company, its manufacturing quality, robustness and comfort on the wrist are unique. A new, highly technical strap constructed by TUDOR and Julien Faure, it is adapted for the rustic nature of the French Navy divers’ work. Made of a 22 mm navy blue polyethylene woven ribbon with a silver central thread, a titanium “D” buckle and a self-gripping fastening system, it adapts to different wrist sizes and is very comfortable to wear. By notable coincidence, Julien Faure has for many years woven decorative ribbons exclusively in its workshops, bearing the names of French Navy ships and forming an integral part of the legendary bachi, the red pompom hat worn by French sailors and quartermasters.
An additional one-piece rubber strap with an embossed motif and buckle is also included with the
Pelagos FXD. It is the first time that this very supple, comfortable strap has been offered by TUDOR.
