Celebrate a Tough Race with an Even Tougher Watch
Edox Swiss WatchesThe FIA World Rally Championship has an illustrious history. Starting in 1973, this grueling rally series has pitted the world’s best drivers against some of the toughest and most varied conditions on earth. The early years of the World Rally Championship were legendary, culminating in spectacular races like the world famous Monte Carlo Rally.

To celebrate a new three and a half year agreement making Edox the official timekeeper of the WRC, Edox is introducing at Baselworld 2012 a remarkable new watch that pays tribute to the legendary drivers of this bygone era. Edox WRC Classic Limited Edition takes you straight back to 1973. Like the powerful machines that challenged the most brutal driving conditions on the planet during the WRC’s glory days, the Edox WRC Classic Limited Edition is designed to survive virtually anything.

Edox WRC Classic Limited Edition

This perfectly proportioned 43mm classic features the timeless good looks that defined a generation. A handsome black dial with red-tipped nickel indices provides the perfect backdrop for three well-placed subdials for timing events. Classically shaped dauphine-style hands make this dependable chronograph extremely readable even under the worst driving conditions. Edox understands that race drivers have enough to worry about without fears of pushing the wrong button. To eliminate unnecessary timing errors, a distinctive red “start” pusher ensures that there will be no mistakes when initiating critical timing events. The “stop” pusher on this durable and practical timepiece is shaped differently as well, for easy recognition even if you’re not looking at the watch.

Everything about this spectacular timepiece is designed for one reason: to provide reliable service under extreme conditions. The watch is powered by a proprietary Edox 101 quartz movement, based on the famous and extremely reliable Ronda 5021D. The case is fashioned from the same hardened 316L stainless steel used for precision surgical equipment and aviation components. This race-ready timepiece is water resistant to 150 feet and can be fitted with a matching stainless steel bracelet or a black crocodile strap. The screw down case back of this remarkable watch is even engraved with the signature laurel wreath awarded to WRC champions.
