David Beckham Goes Diving with Tudor

Celebrating Tudor’s signature campaign, “Born to Dare”, the Swiss watchmaker recently invited David Beckham to step out of his comfort zone and experience his first free dive in open water. In a short video released, the former footballer can be seen training on land in full diving gear and learning about breathing techniques under the guidance of French World Champion Free Diver Morgan Bourc’his.

The pair then sail out to the open sea and experience free-diving. “These are the moments when you are born to dare. It is about putting yourself in situations where you face challenge, which I like. Most of the time these situations bring out the best in me” Beckham said of his experience.

Throughout the whole adventure, Beckham and Bourc’his are wearing Tudor Pelagos diving watches. The name Pelagos is derived from Greek and means “relating to, or living in the open sea”. As the name suggests and thanks to its technical features, the Pelagos is truly at home underwater, whether on the wrist of a free diver or at great depth in a diving bell.

This model’s impressive list of technical features includes being waterproof to 500 meters (with each watch being factory-tested to 625 meters), titanium case and bracelet (40% lighter than stainless steel), patented auto-adjusting clasp, Tudor Manufacture Calibre with 70-hour power reserve and COSC-certification, helium escape valve and fully luminescent display.
