HONOURING THE EDOX HERITAGE
Every watch enthusiast is unique. Now Edox presents a watch that is as unique as you are.
The original military-themed SkyDiver was produced in the 1960s and 1970s when Edox was part of a Swiss watch conglomerate. And although Edox has since successfully carved its own path as an innovative, independent watchmaker it still honours its rich history. The SkyDiver remains part of the Edox watch family, a rugged sports watch that proudly bears the design DNA of the original.
The SkyDiver Date Automatic brings a bold new element to the watch – an ‘aged steel’ look created by a brushed layer of a rare metal belonging to the platinum group on top of the solid stainless steel case. This layer, together with an anti-fingerprint coating, not only protects the case but gives each piece a unique look to last a lifetime. No two watches will ever be the same.
Another ‘vintage’ touch is the special coating applied to the grey leather watch strap; the coating creates ‘fold’ marks on the strap, another nostalgic touch. The SkyDiver Date Automatic also comes with an alternative, brown leather strap that can be easily swapped over. Under the hood beats an Edox Calibre 80 automatic movement, made by Swiss specialist Sellita, while an outer ceramic scratch-resistant bezel provides a practical tool for calculating dive times up to 300 metres below sea level.
The Edox SkyDiver Date Automatic is built to handle any environment, be it the boardroom, the beach or under the waves. It’s a timepiece as unique as you.
ABOUT SKYDIVER COLLECTION
Rumoured to be launched following a Swiss colonel secret request in the 1960s, the new SkyDiver collection pays tribute to paratroopers and the extreme conditions they might face – on land, air or sea. Displaying a vintage military look, the SkyDiver is a reliable timepiece protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a stainless steel case. Water-resistant up to 30ATM / 300m, the SkyDiver will remain readable at such depth thanks to a high standard of night visibility on watches – Super- LumiNova – which covers its hands and indexes. Whether its origin is fact or fantastic, the SkyDiver is a truly hand-assembled timepiece ready to face real adventures.
