Edox Chronograph Grand Ocean Automatic
In 2009, Edox, one of the few independent watchmakers, celebrates its 125th anniversary. To pay tribute to its first marine sports timepieces introduced in the 1960-s, Edox has created a collection named Grand Ocean. The collection comprises mechanical watches devoted to the maritime world.

The new Edox Grand Ocean Chronograph Automatic watch features a sporty, decidedly masculine case, 48 mm in diameter, sculptured in hand-polished stainless steel with black and red-gold PVD-coating. The vulcanized rubber strap is attached to the case with help of three signature lugs. The case incorporates a fixed gold-colored PVD notched bezel.

The watch is animated by the automatic rewind calibre Edox no. 012, highly acclaimed for its reliability. The 25-jewel movement, beating at a frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour, provides a 42-hour power reserve. Besides hours, minutes and seconds, the movement animates a 12-hour chronograph and a date display.

The case also incorporates a gold-colored screw-down crown to be used for winding the watch and adjusting the time and date. The crown is adorned with the Edox logo, representing a stylized hourglass. The two push-pieces are used for operating the chronograph start-stop-reset functions.

The hand-finished dial is completed with manually applied indexes. The time is indicated by gold-colored hour and minute hands, as well as a small seconds hand featuring a compass-like style. You will also notice the dial is embellished with a compass-like relief.

The dial of the Edox watch is protected by a scratchproof domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.

A highly original viewing porthole in the case-back shows the beating heart of the mechanical timepiece. The case-back also features a map of the world's oceans.
The Edox Grand Ocean Chronograph Automatic watch is water-resistant down to 100 meters.

The strap features an embossed “Grand Ocean” logo and is fitted a deployment clasp with another porthole, also with the brand’s logo.

Edox Sea Dubai Limited Edition
Edox and Sea Dubai Sailing share the same values - perfection, reliability and precision, prestige and performance. To celebrate the successful partnership with Sea Dubai Sailing, Edox has created a new limited edition watch. The timepiece is limited to 500 pieces.

The case of the Edox watch, 45 mm in diameter, is sculptured from hand-polished stainless steel. The case features two-color PVD-coating in blue and steel. The timepiece is 100-metre water-resistant.

The dial of the watch, a true masterpiece of craftsmanship, reflects the brand’s outstanding expertise. The zest of the dial is a “jumping hour” display positioned at 12 o’clock. The dial stands out due to two different layers, with clearly separated hours, minutes and seconds. The dial is shielded by a non-reflecting, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The Edox Sea Dubai Limited Edition watch is equipped with the self-winding calibre Edox no. 47. The 27-jewel movement performs 28,800 alternations per hour. It provides 42 hours of power-reserve.

The case-back of the watch also demonstrates the precision craftsmanship. Connoisseurs of the inner life of the timepiece can admire the balance wheel through a porthole. The case-back also features the official royal “Sea Dubai Sailing” emblem.

The Edox watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is coupled with a blue calf leather strap fitted with a stainless steel folding catch with a screw-on viewing port.
