Comprehensive Guide to Tudor Sizes: Dimensions of Every Model

Comprehensive Guide to Tudor Sizes: Dimensions of Every Model

Following our recent guide to Rolex sizes, we thought it would be useful to compile a similar one for Tudor watches. Like Rolex, Tudor has been busy adding new sizes to its various collections in recent years. Some models have welcomed smaller iterations while others have added a few millimeters here and there. 

As we’ve said before, understanding the case size and lug width of a watch is important when choosing a strap or bracelet to pair it with. So let’s get into it; here is our handy guide to Tudor sizes, outlining all the case diameters and lug widths of popular modern models. 

Tudor Black Bay Size

Tudor Black Bay

The Black Bay is Tudor’s flagship dive watch collection. It was an immediate success upon its debut in 2012 (then called the Heritage Black Bay) thanks to its blend of vintage styling and modern execution. While it was originally available only in stainless steel, the collection has since expanded to include two-tone steel and gold versions, as well as a ceramic model too. The first generation ran on an ETA-based movement while the current versions are powered by in-house movements. At Watches and Wonders 2023, Tudor added the new Black Bay ref. 7941A1A0RU with a burgundy bezel, a slimmer case, the choice of a new five-link bracelet, and a METAS-certified movement (MT5602-U).

Tudor Pelagos Size

While the Black Bay is Tudor’s vintage-inspired diving collection, the Pelagos is the brand’s ultra-modern diver line – also introduced in 2012. The Pelagos is crafted from lightweight titanium, features a helium escape valve, is water-resistant to 500 meters, and includes a date window on the dial. The first generation Pelagos was equipped with an outsourced movement whereas the newest versions run on an in-house caliber. Aside from the option of black or blue, Tudor also makes an LHD version where the crown is placed on the left.

Tudor Pelagos FXD Size

Tudor Pelagos FXD

In 2021, Tudor released the Pelagos FXD, design for (and with input from) the French Navy, a.k.a. Marine Nationale. Adhering to the specs required by the Marine Nationale, the Pelagos FXD differs from the original Pelagos in several ways including fix lugs, which is where FXD is derived from. There’s also a full graduated countdown bezel that’s bi-directional and no date window on the dial. What’s more, unlike the original Pelagos, the Pelagos FXD does not include a helium escape valve and its water resistance is rated to 200m. In 2023, two Pelagos FXD watches for the Alinghi x Redbull sailing team were released – one time-only and one chronograph – both featuring black carbon composite cases (instead of titanium.) Finally, later in the year, a Pelagos FXD for the US Navy made its debut, again with a titanium case but this time with a more traditional unidirectional elapsed-time dive bezel.

That wraps up our comprehensive guide to Tudor case sizes and lug widths. As always, we like to mention that while these measurements are certainly important when buying a new watch strap, other considerations like lug shape and case thickness will also have an impact on the fit. So, if you have any concerns or questions about selecting the correct strap for a Tudor watch, don’t hesitate to contact our fun and friendly Everest team.
