Tudor is a sub-brand of Rolex, it was not popular in the past and only released some models with copied design of Submariner. With the rise of diver’s watches, in recent years, Tudor has unveiled a lot of popular watches with brand-new amazing design, these Tudor watches were no longer simple copies of Submariner, they have their own design concept under the newly created Pelagos series. Pelagos is the diver’s watch series of Tudor, but it is different from Rolex’s professional diving watch Submariner, Tudor Pelagos is more popular among swimming and diving amateurs as well as marine caregivers. Today, I want to give an introduction of one replica Tudor Pelagos watch, it is Blue Pelagos, whose reference number is 25600TB. The replica watch is made by XF(former V6 factory), the photos below is the latest V3 edition of Tudor Blue Pelagos replica, in this article, I want to show you those improvements XF factory has made on this new version.
The case is measured to be 42mm in diameter and 13.5mm thick. It is fully made of high grade Titanium, bezel, lugs and case back included. Titanium case is brushed and shows a rough appearance. The watch is lighter than other Tudor in full stainless steel. Check every corner of the case, it is polished to be smooth, there is no scratch feeling and the watch will give you a perfect wearing comfort. If you have a genuine Tudor Blue Pelagos watch, you can compare it with this replica, the crown, helium valve and bezel are already cloned 99% the same as genuine. Especially the crown guards on the replica, they use pointed design like genuine. The crown face also features a Tudor iconic shield logo in three-dimensional. The engravings of “GAS ESCAPE VALVE” are in dark grey color, which is the same as genuine watch. Blue uni-directional rotating bezel uses real ceramic material, bezel markers are engraved in a proper depth, the numbers 20, 30, 40 and 50 have a closer font and shape than V1 and V2, about the bezel markings, when being compared with genuine watch, no difference could be found. When rotating the bezel, the feel is very good and you will hear beautiful clicking sound. Each has an individual reference number that is engraved on the back of one lug.
Matt blue dial uses beveled design, hour markers are box-shaped except the triangle at 12 o’clock. Hour hand is snowflake-style, central hands have silver edge and are applied white luminous material, so are hour markers. The dial will have a blue lume in the dark. On the blue dial, these printings are white, there is a small window at 3 o’clock, it is displaying current date in black font. The dial printings show that genuine watch could be 500m water resistant, about the replica, its has been tested by the factory to be 50m water resistant.
The bracelet is made of Titanium, each link is solid, I have compare the width and thickness of the bracelet with genuine, and found no difference. The Titanium bracelet is brushed very well, if the bracelet is a little longer and does not fit your wrist, please remove the links from the end that connects with the case. When opening the clasp, you will be shocked by its construction because the replica watch has the same diver’s extension as genuine watch. In a word, the bracelet and clasp can be interchanged with original.
The replica is equipped with an Asian clone Tudor MT5612 automatic movement, which is modified on basis of Japanese Miyota 9015. XF factory modified the auto rotor and decorated movement plates to make it look closer to genuine Tudor Caliber. Do not worry about the inaccuracy, the basic Miyota 9015 has already been a very reliable high end automatic movement, it is being used by a lot of 1:1 Swiss replica watches and its accuracy is guaranteed. Besides, Miyota 9015 is considered to be the movement that has the lowest repairing rate in replica watch industry.
By the way, XF offers one pair of free blue rubber straps for this replica Tudor watch.
