A mysterious drawing found in the archives of Swiss watchmaker Edox has rekindled a decades-old mystery. The sketch of a long-lost timepiece, the SkyDiver, had a scrawled note reading: “1973. Special production in strictly limited edition.” But nothing more. Now Edox is releasing a new SkyDiver, in homage to its 135-year history and for aficionados of fine military timepieces. Powered by an automatic three-hand Swiss movement calibre 80, the 300m water-resistant SkyDiver features a divers’ bezel and a parachute motif-engraved caseback. The 2mm-thick sapphire crystal and the Superluminova X1 on hands and indexes will guarantee scratch resistance and readability in the most extreme conditions. Like its mysterious 1970s predecessor, the 2019 SkyDiver is a strictly limited edition to 555 pieces. Presented in a special leather pouch, with an additional vintage leather strap, the SkyDiver will be a beautiful vintage military look collectors’ item.
Rumoured to be launched following a Swiss colonel secret request in 1973, the new SkyDiver Military 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 2mm-thick 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 – Superluminova X1 – 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.
The Edox Sharkman is the ultimate in dive watch engineering performance and design, also a master of the fantastic world beneath the waves. Water resistant up to 1000m / 100 ATM, protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a ceramic bezel, the Sharkman is the perfect timekeeping tool for exploring the shark’s domain and – like the engrave case back message – to “Face Your Fears”. Just 333 individually numbered Sharkman III pieces will be available worldwide.
Edox continues the evolution of its Les Bémonts collection with a striking new release for 2019 that reflects the technical excellence, retro look and ultra-slim design of pioneering Les Bémonts models.
The 1998 Ultra Slim Les Bémonts still holds the record (1.4mm) for the world’s slimmest calendar watch movement. The new models, at just 6.2mm case height, are light and amazingly comfortable on the wrist. The perfect fit for a long-sleeve business shirt. Powered by a two-hand quartz movement calibre 56, the Les Bémonts range – just like the tranquil rural region in Switzerland the collection is named after – is also deeply steeped in tradition. From the initial hand-drawn designs to hand-assembling, the collection reflects the Edox commitment to timeless craftsmanship as well as constant innovation.
