PVD Edox uses PVD coatings which is a high-performance pollution free and non-allergenic technology also used in the aeronautic industry, is widely used in watchmaking. The process involves putting a fine titanium coating on stainless steel by condensing a metal vapor in a partial vacuum. Rubber Edox uses genuine high-grade rubber for its straps (a natural material and extremely comfortable). The rubber is silky finished and easy to maintain with the proper cleaning. Sapphire crystals 100% of Edox timepieces are fitted with a scratch-resistant crystal that has been cut from a polished slice of solid sapphire. Each has a triple-coated anti-reflective treatment on the internal side for better legibility. Stainless Steel The 316L stainless steel alloy used in Edox cases and bracelets has strong anti-magnetic properties and is optimized for toughness and corrosion resistance. It is also a good choice for consumers allergic to nickels. Titanium Edox integrates this metal to some of its sports timepieces, as it is as strong as steel but 45% lighter and highly resistant to corrosion. The high tensile strength to density ratio makes it the ideal material for active lifestyles. Visual and manual testing In addition to our testing process, all timepieces are visually checked between each manufacturing step ensuring overall quality based on our own Edox standards. If a timepiece does not pass inspection, it is checked and repaired. It can only go back to the production phase if it has passed the quality check. technical information  EDOX Quality Batteries In compliance with global regulations and standards, Edox equips its quartz timepieces with mercury-free batteries. This is a positive step towards environmental sustainability with no effect on the watch precision and efficiency. Conformity Every component coming into our production facility in Les Genevez in the Swiss Jura is checked to ensure its dimensions, aesthetics, quality and interchangeability. Diamonds Edox diamonds are carefully selected and matched not just according to carat value but also to cut, color and clarity. All diamonds are purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolutions. We guarantee that these diamonds are conflict free. Edox double O’ring Crown or Pusher Since the 70’s, Edox has set specific quality and technical standards for ensuring the water resistance of diving timepieces. The double O’ring crown or pusher has been engineered by Edox to allow to increase the resistance to water pressure. Timepieces equipped with crowns or pushers featuring a double O’ring are featuring the special pictogram for easy understanding. Helium Escape Valve Some of our Class-1 timepieces are equipped with a decompression system which allows helium to escape from inside the watch when worn for professional use in pressure chambers (long-term underwater work, crude oil exploration, etc). The Edox helium valve opens and closes automatically. It is imperative that the models equipped with a non-automatic helium escape valve (such as older Edox timepieces) have the helium valve screwed back in order to guarantee their water resistance. Unscrew the helium escape valve only to release the gas from the watch. These adjustments must never be made underwater. Leather All Edox leather straps are specially cut, stitched and padded by expert craftspeople. Various ways of tanning provide different touch and feel for the straps made of cow or calf leather. It is always important to remember that colors and suppleness of leather are subject to change with time and exposure to external factors. Daily showers or swims are not recommended. If your consumers live a very active lifestyle, especially one involving frequent exposure to salt water and heavy perspiration, we recommend a steel bracelet or rubber strap. Luminescence This technology, branded under the name Super-Luminova, offers brightness in low-light conditions, thanks to a non-radioactive and non-toxic material like the tritium previously employed in the industry. Edox uses Super-Luminova for its highly functional attributes. It is applied on watch parts such as hands, numerals, bezel indices, etc. Mother-of-pearl Resilient, and iridescent, mother-of-pearl is integrated in many Edox dial designs. It is produced inside the shells of certain mollusk shells. This is why each dial made of mother-of-pearl is unique. Movements EDOX equips its timepieces with Swiss-made precision mechanical and quartz movements. These are sourced from the best manufacturers in Switzerland. Exclusive mechanisms are also developed with renowned partners for special timepieces. Edox integrates exclusive Swissdeveloped and Swiss-made electronic modules to power timepieces like the Chronorally. Mechanical movement: A mechanical movement undergoes several stresses in its life. To ensure it will remain functional and precise as long as possible, Edox simulates watch wearing in its own quality office for every single manual and self-winding mechanism. EDOX Quality 104
