EDOX SKYDIVER LIMITED EDITION – SHAPED BY THE PAST, CREATED FOR THE PRESENT
Before Edox became independent, the traditional brand was in the 60s and 70s part of a group (ASUAG and GWC), which included various Swiss watch manufacturers. Specializing in highly waterresistant watches, Edox produced some exceptional timepieces at that time, such as the SkyDiver collections, which were manufactured not only for Edox but also for other well-known watch brands of the ASUAG group.
Honouring the Edox heritage of classic models designed for paratroopers and the military in the 1960s and 1970s, SkyDiver Limited Edition combines the best of two worlds – the no-nonsense functionality of a dive watch and the style and aesthetics of a precision pilot’s watch.
The beautiful case, black dial, striking indices, oversized crown and domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal faithfully reflect a SkyDiver watch designed by Edox in the 1960s. The black dial reflects the precision instruments that once accompanied adventurers conquering land, sea or air – the Fly, Drive and Dive challenges that suit Edox watches to a tee. But the materials and construction of the contemporary SkyDiver Limited Edition are pure 21st century.
Military styling runs right through the SkyDiver’s DNA, from its semi-matt finish dial to the solid case back proudly portraying the emblem of a paratrooper unit. The SkyDiver Limited Edition complements its rugged military vibe with practical functionality for any adventure, be it on land, sea or in the air, including a ceramic, scratch- resistant diving bezel and water-resistance to 300m. The hands and indices are coated with Super-LumiNova in beige, another vintage touch, and there’s also a date window at three o-clock. The SkyDiver Limited Edition (600 pieces) runs with military precision, thanks to its Edox Calibre 80 automatic movement, manufactured by Swiss specialist Sellita. The hand- assembled timepiece features a carefully crafted stainless steel case, beautifully offset by a soft leather strap. You also get a choice of two straps, easily swapped via the cleverly designed but simple to operate quick- release spring bars on the watch lugs.
Contemporary in character, the SkyDiver Limited Edition reinforces the pioneering spirit of adventure that has driven Edox from its very beginnings. So unleash your adventurous spirit with the new Edox SkyDiver Limited Edition.
THE SKYDIVER COLLECTION HERITAGE
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.
