    I bought one last week from WOS. I was advised they had two in the group if I wanted one. I ordered and collected. No discount offered or received.

    I really like it, not too bling..

    I love the look of mine - but find the bracelet very uncomfortable, almost as if the edges are too sharp (despite them not being so). Is that just me or anyone else?

    One did tell me a ridiculous story about the bezel action, apparently Tudor designers made the click on the pelagos and BB sound like the Rolex safe where they store the precious metals. Hmmm. Sounds absurd to me and very unlikely. I don't think the two watches even have similar sounding clicks.
    I've heard it pronounced pela-GOESH, didn't know about the God but it's the Grreek word for island I think.

    I love the blue, reminds me of the Greek flag and wonderful holidays.

    Just seen one go for £940 on ebay, I'd reported it as fake twice.

    No issues here. Is it too tight?

    Itís one of the dodgy-looking Pelagos that I saw too. In the description, the seller even said that it didnít have a Tudor movement! But all the photos were 100% Tudor Pelagos. This listing screamed Ďfakeí!

    Pelagos in Greek simply means sea.
    But it refers to an area a sea - think Mediterranean Sea - is smaller than an ocean in surface area and a pelagos is smaller than a sea.

    I think I've dithered for far too long, and I've seen one FS so I hope I'll be joining you soon!

    Pelagos means open sea in Greek.

    Should be mentioned that the Greek prime minister has been seen to sport one quite often.
