Edox Goes to Extremes to Perfect the Seagoing Timepiece
The Edox name has been linked to water sports ever since the 1961 launch of their groundbreaking Delfin automatic watch. This durable design featured a patented double shock protection system and double crown gaskets that was water resistant to 670 feet. This remarkable timepiece was followed by the Edox Hydrosub in 1965, which was water resistant to an amazing 1640 feet.
From the popular Grand Ocean Collection to Christian Redl’s special Iceshark III, Edox has demonstrated a unique affinity for the water. With almost 130 years of experience in the art of watchmaking, Edox has become an expert at adapting their unsurpassed timekeeping expertise to the needs of sailors and sportsmen.
In celebration of their new alliance with the prestigious Extreme Sailing Series, Edox is launching a special limited edition Grand Ocean timepiece to commemorate the Stadium Sailing format of the Extreme Sailing Series. “Precision timing is crucial to running a successful race, since all the action takes place very close to shore” says Remi Duchemin, CEO of the Extreme Sailing Series. “We are thrilled to be working with Edox to promote our shared values of technology, engineering, quality and excellence.”

The new Grand Ocean Extreme Sailing Series Special Edition features a spectacular 48 mm 316L stainless steel case with a specially designed engraving on the caseback in celebration of the Edox partnership with the Extreme Sailing Series. This impressive automatic chronograph is powered by a precision Swiss made ETA 2892-A2 mechanical movement and is water resistant to 900 feet. The uncluttered, extremely legible chronograph dial has been designed to be easily read during the difficult conditions faced by sailors in open water. The intense, short races that are characteristic of Extreme Sailing events can be easily and reliably timed with this dependable watch. The timepiece features a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and has been fitted with a dramatic, structured black rubber strap.
Edox continues to go to extremes to set new standards for innovation and excellence. Although the new Grand Ocean Extreme Sailing Series Special Edition was designed for professional sailors, you don’t have to race in the Extreme Sailing Series to own one. If you’d like to see one of these big, bold masterpieces on your own wrist, we urge you to contact an authorized Edox dealer immediately and reserve your Extreme Sailing Series Special Edition while supplies last.
