The History of an icon
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.

The world-wide most efficient crown system
In 1961 Edox-engineers developed a water-resistant, patented crown system, based on a double waterproof joint. Thanks to this revolutionary waterproof system the crown needn’t to be screwed and guarantees a simple and comfortable handling. This technical innovation, as well as a double casing bottom is the main parts of a water-resistant and athletic watch collection, called „Delfin“. In 1965 with the Delfin – Hydrosub, a model water-resistant to 500 meters Edox set new benchmarks. At this time a never reached technical masterpiece.
2013 THE REVIVAL OF AN ICON
In 2013 Edox has revived the Delfin for 21st Century watch fans, capturing the spiritof the original model with a classic retro-inspired case but also building on more than 50 years’ expertise in the field of waterresistant watches.
2018 Forever Pioneer
The present is built with the past and the past is written by the present. Learn from the achieved successes in order to reach new ones. The new Delfin timepieces embodie this loyalty and ambition. They invite you to travel through time and to forge your future. The Delfin uses the disruptive double O’ring system launched for the first time in 1961 aswell as a reinforced case back which allows the new Delfin to operate perfectly in depths up to 300 meters. In order to guarantee the readability at this depth, the indexes and the hands are covered with SLN X1 while the sapphire glass protects the watch from scratches and reflections. Because a real champion is also a symbol of charisma, the new Delfin displays the iconic dodecagonal bezel, modernised and worn by the most adventurous wrists since 1973. This time, the bezel sports a refreshed look by displaying a second colour until 4 o’clock for short, shallow dives. The clean, but efficient dial, sports three hands and a date display.
