Extreme Racing’s Precision Instrument: Edox Mens 10304 37NJ NJ Miss Geico Limited Edition Chronograph


by Adrian Herscovici  

Extreme Racing’s Precision Instrument

Marc Granet - Scott BegovichIn this era of extreme sports and advanced engineering, few sports match the appeal of offshore powerboat racing. Even fewer demand that a profound synergy exist between two pilots – in this case driver Marc Granet and throttleman Scott Begovich – and the vehicle they command. Outside of their skills and instincts, these pilots are only as good as the instruments they rely upon.

Edox Mens 10304 37NJ NJ Miss Geico Racing Limited Edition Chronograph WatchCue the watch engineers at Edox and the new Edox Miss Geico Racing Limited Edition Chronograph.

Edox is an official team sponsor of Miss Geico Racing. The timepiece company introduced the Edox Miss Geico Racing Limited Edition Chronograph in 2011 with the ambition of capturing the spirit of the Miss Geico offshore powerboat in every respect, from precision to performance.

Miss Geico Triple Crown LizardThe Miss Geico is one of the most recognizable offshore powerboats in the water: a bright yellow, 50-foot-long, twin-turbine Mystic catamaran, 4,000 horsepower, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 210 mph. The watch also boasts an eye-catching exterior including a yellow strap, which creates an instant connection. Under the hood, the Miss Geico chrono houses an extremely efficient engine – Edox’s Calibre 103 movement, which is based on a Ronda quartz movement featuring a battery with an ultra-long lifespan of an estimated four-and-a-half years. When the crown is pulled out, a power-saving mechanism further reduces the demand on the battery by a whopping 70 percent.

Edox Swiss WatchesSeveral materials are integrated into the watch’s build. The 45 mm case is made of 316L stainless steel and coated with black PVD. The caseback is engraved with a Class 1 racing propeller, a special Miss Geico Racing design and the individual watch number. The dial features black, carbon fiber with white hour indices at each hour except “12,” where a yellow double-marker appears instead. Below it is the Edox logo, the Miss Geico Racing logo and the boat’s number “113,” which is applied in the same style as it appears on the powerboat. The dive bezel is made of black ceramic and features four hourglass-shaped stainless steel rivets. The Edox hourglass logo is embossed on the yellow (it also comes in black) rubber strap, which is shaped and fitted to the lugs. Like the case, the folding clasp is made of stainless steel and coated with black PVD.

As for function, the chronograph has a central-seconds hand and a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. The counter at 9 o’clock has a perpetual small-seconds hand. Both counters are outlined in yellow, as is the date window at 6 o’clock. The date ring (on which the date numbers appear) features a black background and yellow numerals that perfectly match the dial. A tachymeter circles the outside of the dial.

Excellent water resistance is expected for any watch associated with water sports and the Miss Geico chrono delivers and then some. The case is pressurized, the crystal is a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective synthetic crystal, and the crown and chronograph pushers are all screw-down ensuring supreme water resistance down to 3,000 feet.

One final trait that the Miss Geico chrono shares with its powerboat namesake is exclusivity: production is limited to just 113 pieces worldwide. Each watch is individually numbered from 001/113 to 113/113 on the engraved caseback and comes with an official certificate guaranteeing its authenticity.

Edox’s relationship with Class 1 offshore powerboat racing began in 2006. One year later, Edox revolutionized powerboat timing systems by utilizing both satellite and GPS technology. Today, Edox is the official and exclusive timekeeper of the UIM Class 1 World Powerboat Championship and the Edox Pole Position Championship.

Colorful 3H Italia Mens 441NC Oceandiver Black Dial Watch


by Boris Pjanic  

3H Italia WatchesFew people in their right minds would dare test the water resistance at 500 feet of the Oceandiver watch from 3H Italia. Fortunately, however, the Oceandiver is both an all around watch and a rugged timepiece that can be worn when swimming or diving.

3H Italia Mens 441NC Oceandiver Black Dial WatchThis black multicolor dial Oceandiver watch comes with either a silicone strap or a leather strap. I like the watch’s orange color Arabic numerals that congregate at twelve o’clock and its Italian flag colors that give the watch a bit of Italian flair. The Oceandiver features an automatic mechanical movement which means that it derives its energy from the movement of your wrist. As long as you wear the watch when you’re active, the watch stays wound.

3H Italia watches with their distinctive super-luminosity bring light into each wearer’s life. They also blend sport and fashion in a way that’s truly seductive. These watches are worn by many celebrities, including Shaggy, rapper AG Dolla and racing driver Niki Lanik. You can be next!

Edox Mens 96001 37NO NIO2 Iceman I Limited Edition Diving Watch

Under the Ice with the Iceman

Free-Diver Christian RedlAustrian Christian Redl fell in love with water as a young boy. However, in 1996 when he turned 20, a key year for him, he saw the film, The Big Blue, and at a championship meet that same year met the famous free-diver, Umberto Pelizzari. A career in free-diving was born.

This veritable merman, who pushes back the limits of the endurable, is now considered one of the foremost free-diving specialists of our time. Christian Redl holds several world free-diving records, of which the most impressive is probably his 100-meter under-ice swim — although his traversing of Mexican caves is unforgettable.

Christian’s ultimate objective is to surpass his own limits, making his dreams reality. His dives under ice show that, apart from the exploit itself, it is about reaching out for and pushing back the limits of the extreme. Christian’s next major project is planned for Austria in early 2011, when he’ll attempt to beat the world free-diving record for depth under ice. Equipped only with a 3 mm neoprene wetsuit, he’ll attempt to beat the record of 60 meters in 36 degree Fahrenheit water, a daunting challenge, even for a free-diver of his caliber.

Edox Swiss WatchesSharing the same philosophy of taking on extreme challenges, Edox became Christian Redl’s watchmaking partner.
