Sixty years ago, Switzerland’s Edox dazzled the watchmaking world with a diver’s ‘super watch’ – the Delfin. Shock-proof, with a patented double O-ring system and reinforced, pressure-resistant case, the Delfin could plunge to an astonishing 200m beneath the waves without a care. The Delfin set a new benchmark in water-resistant timepieces and Edox was lauded as the ‘Water Champion’ of the Swiss watch industry.
Now Edox honours that legacy with a spectacular new timepiece – the Delfin Mecano 60th Anniversary Limited Edition. The new anniversary edition not only goes deeper than the 1961 original (300m water-resistance this time) but sports a host of dazzling design and technical improvements. First, that striking dial with its rotor design; the rotor embodies a steady, constant movement in perfect harmony with the precision mechanical ‘engine’ that powers the watch. That ‘engine’ is the Swiss-made, ultra- reliable Sellita Calibre 853, skeletonised so you can glimpse the incredible technical prowess and superb finishing that goes into every Edox timepiece.
Surrounding the dial is a cool 12-sided bezel, a distinctive design that Edox first introduced into its watches in 1973. Each side of the bezel represents one-hour increments. The watch case is constructed of tough stainless steel, coated with black-grey PVD for a beautiful feel on the wrist. At 43mm, the Delfin Mecano 60th Anniversary Limited Edition makes a bold statement when worn and the transparent, fully screwed case back (like the dial, protected by scratch-resistant anti-reflective sapphire crystal) adds to the watch’s ‘wow factor’.
Moveable lugs allow the wearer to adjust the fit precisely to their own tastes and with SuperLuminova-coated hands reading off the time in low light – or whether you are beneath the waves – is crystal clear. A stunning statement in 21st Century watchmaking, the Delfin Mecano 60th Anniversary Limited Edition adds a brilliant new chapter to the Delfin legend as only Edox – the water champion – can do.
First introduced in 1961, the Delfin is an emblematic collection with an iconic design and a true timekeeping pioneer. It was the first watch to use the ‘Double O ring» system which, with a
reinforced case back, gave it 200m water resistance. Today, this incredible collection is still known as ’’The Water Champion’’ and remains the explorers’ first choice.
