In 2014, EDOX is celebrating its 130th anniversary and to commemorate this occasion the Swiss watch maker is unveiling a contemporary version of its Geoscope launched in 1971.
Considered as the world’s first genuine WorldTimer wristwatch, Geoscope was a big (42mm), bold and beautiful timepiece and immediately became a collectors’ favourite. Now, to mark the 130th anniversary of Edox, the Geoscope returns to enthral a whole new generation of watch lovers.
The original Geoscope’s unique colourful planisphere dial showed the globe as viewed from the South Pole. An inner bezel, displaying 24 divisions, made one complete revolution every 24 hours and the watch also showed GMT time, plus the sun’s position.
The new Geoscope Limited Edition (just 300 available worldwide, individually numbered 001 to 300) is an updated version of the original classic, which is still a highly sought-after collector’s piece.
The Geoscope Limited Edition retains the inner rotating bezel with its incredible “earth map”, this time as viewed from the North Pole, plus a date display on a sub-dial at 6 o’clock. Powered by an automatic movement with a module for the GMT functions, the Geoscope Limited Edition is water-resistant to 20 ATM (200m).
Produced in steel with a stunning matching steel-link bracelet, this beautiful wristwatch is presented in a special collector’s box. The Geoscope Limited Edition is a thoroughly modern re-imagining of a timeless classic, with its orange hour markers and distinctive main hands paying homage to those on the original.
