Finally I manage to view and 'play' with the Tudor Pelagos reference 25500TN. I have to say that any initial apprehension I had about the watch, based on early life photographs on the Internet were all wiped away. I had my doubts about the overall finish of the watch. I am pleasantly surprised and impressed with the watch save one thing, but more about that later.
I like it.
Something old and something new....
Opppsss lousy photograph...
A slightly better one. The Pelagos with its Granddad the reference 7016. Which would you choose?
OK, so what is the one thing I don't like about the watch? The clasp. Don't know how robust the mechanism is and how long it will last (with dirt and grime getting into it). But if I do get the watch, I will use it with the provided rubber strap.
So, which suits me better? The Black Bay or the Pelagos? The Black Bay was starting to grow on me, but after looking at the Pelagos.....
Both would be nice...... :)
