For the occasion of its 125th anniversary in 2009, Swiss watch maker Edox paid tribute to a legendary Venus 203 mechanical movement, by launching the Super Limited Edition 1884 timepiece.
Venus 203 is one of the most renowned mechanical movements in the history of watchmaking, which was conceived and designed at the beginning of the 1950s in the Venus SA workshops at Moutier in Switzerland.
All the technical excellence and ingenuity of this movement have been reworked to produce this legendary and timeless model.
The Grand Ocean case is sophisticated and discreet with a polished and brushed finish, while the delicately notched bezel is in 18 carat gold.
The silver-plated dial does full justice to the star-studded midnight blue transfer for the moon-phase indicator, while two date windows are located at 11 and 1 o’clock. The markers are asymmetrical and applied by hand.
The limited- edition number of each timepiece is engraved on the left-hand side of the case. The Venus movement can be appreciated through the transparent case-back.
Production of the Super Limited Edition 1884 by Edox is limited to 125 pieces worldwide and is packaged in an exclusive presentation box.
