Marcus Fillinger is a professional Advertising Photographer, and specialist reserve Royal Australian Air Force photographer. In 2018 he will run the North Pole Marathon and will be accompanied by two of his expedition huskies for the 42.195km event.
Running the gruelling North Pole Marathon takes a special type of person. Competitors face the sheer effort, physical and mental, of running 26.2 miles (42.195km) on a course entirely on the ice – plus bone-numbing temperatures. At the North Pole Marathon later this year, Fillinger will wear the new Edox N-Pole 42.195, a watch born to handle the world’s toughest extreme marathon.
The N-Pole 42.195 (limited to 300 pieces worldwide) has a Swiss-made Edox 102 quartz movement at its heart and rugged exterior, thanks to a 316L stainless steel case and scratch-resistant ceramic diving bezel. Whatever the weather, Fillinger will be able to get an instant, precise indication of his progress with just a glance at the N-Pole 42.195’s superbly clean black and red dial.
Water-resistant to 500m, the 45 mm N-Pole 42.195 comes in a special presentation box and has a map of the Pole engraved on the case back.
