    They still seem to be scarce. One watch per AD per quarter seems to be the current supply rate?

    It seems like it may potentially be a low production watch rather than low at first before supplies increase, but who knows for sure?

    Same as mine, the EO Denim is a great partner for FXD!




    I think Tudor have seriously underestimated the demand for what they probably saw as a niche model, bet they are delighted with the lists though!

    I think they knew all along. It's a marketing dream taken out of the Rolex/Omega/Porsche/etc notebook.

    I had a call last week and picked mine up. I don't even recall going on the list (though I was interested in the watch when released so must have done), so a very pleasant call out of the blue. Wears much better for me than the regular Pelagos, it's almost like a Submariner in profile and still noticing small details like the difference in crown from the Pelagos and the really grippy bezel edge compared to other watches I have owned.

    The AD reported a very long waiting list and they received this watch in their delivery. They got 2 x Pros in the same shipment and both were snapped up (was told a 4 page list for the Pro, didn't say how long for the FXD but implication was that they expect more Pros than FXDs to be delivered). Both watches seemed to go out within a day of arriving.

    I've had mine a couple of months and I still find it as fabulous as the first day I got it. It's currently on an older silver NATO while I wait for the shorter OEM strap to be delivered (ordered when collecting the watch).

    Supply seems low, maybe intentionally, so there's no sign of anyone seeing one in an AD's window anytime soon as far as I can tell.

    Thanks all, I though once the MN21 rush was over it would die down a bit.

    Big fan of mine, I wear it a lot.
    When it arrived, I looked at my Eta Pelagos, and realised I wouldn't wear it again, so I sold it.
    No regrets, the MN is an improvement in every respect. I wear mine on a CNS ribbed Nato in dark grey. Looks great too.

    Need to get a few new straps. Not 100% on this yet, but will give it a bit longer.

    These look nice.. I purchased a BB58 bronze back in January and had to go to the flagship store in Meadowhall (Sheffield) to get it in person . Is this a flag ship store only watch or can they be purchased in any Tudor stocking jewellers?

    I Have swapped mine to a Nick Mankey hook strap which enhances the slim case profile as it does not thread under the watch.

    Dumb question but how do you get Erikas to fit as its fixed lugs? Has she changed the design?
    The last E's I had required that you took the spring bars off to fit.

    I really like mine but the Velcro strap is on the long side.

    You can take off one of the keepers so the fabric go through the lugs and then put the keeper back.
    Nick mankey does it as well

    You can also buy a shorter version of the Tudor velcro strap. A medium comes with the watch, but it's also available in short and long.

    I now have the short, after a couple of months wait, and it's spot on.

    The last answer is only true if you ask for the fixed lug version. The standard EO has hardware sewn in on both ends.

    Okay, you guys win. Have tried to resist this for so long but the watch keeps haunting me. Have now placed a WTB:-)

    Be prepared to pay way over RRP even on here.

    There are loads for sale, and more appear to be coming through to ADs at the moment. Over RRP prices can't be sustained IMHO so don't pay over the odds would be my advice.

    Definitely buy one though, they're fabulous

    Would like to see different coloured NATO's and other straps with this, as I seek inspiration. Mine is currently on a blue/white NATO which I am not 100% happy with.

    I've never been particularly interested in a Pelagos but even I think this looks like one of Tudor's best offerings. Really nice watch.

    I am really taken with mine, it is that little bit different from what Rolex offer, with the ti case, coin edge bezel and fixed lugs.
    My other Tudor is a black bay bronze, again a case material not offered by Rolex. Variety is the spice after all.

    2021 Tudor Marine Nationale Pelagos

    Typically I got offered one of these last week via a private sale but I was not in a financial situation to take it as Iíd just forked out my watch cash for something else. Iíve had my name down at a couple of Tudor dealers for a couple of months but nothing yet. Are they trickling through or do we expect to see a deluge like the bb58 by the end of the year?
