The new Pelagos is, well, better than the old version.
There don't really start on the outside (with the exception of the new blue dial Pelagos). Other than the new dial and bezel color, the only other change is the wall of text at six. What's up with that? Is all that information truly necessary? For those wondering, it states:

I've included a screenshot detailing all of the specs. of the new movement below. Other than that, the new watch is basically the same. Although the pictures show only rubber straps, the two watches also have steel bracelets. tudorwatch.com
