XCAT racing is the world’s most thrilling offshore powerboat series and now Swiss watchmaker Edox is along for the ride. Edox will partner Team Australia as its pilots, Pal Virik Nilson and Brett Luhrmann, look to capture the 2019 world championship.
The XCAT twin V6 multi-hulls, made from advanced carbon technology, roar across the water at close to 200km/h; racing them requires courage and superb seamanship and split-second timing. Edox will release a striking new chronograph to mark the new era with the “Blue Roo” team.
The Edox Automatic Chronograph Carbon (45mm) is powered by an Edox Calibre 011 chronograph movement, based on the Sellita SW500. With a carbon-coated case and 500m water-resistant rating, the Automatic Chronograph Carbon won’t miss a beat in the rough-and-tough, adrenaline-fuelled theatre of XCAT.
Available in four colour variants, all featuring a transparent case back allowing the full view on the movement, the Automatic Chronograph Carbon is another superb example of precision watchmaking from Edox.
The CO-1 collection was designed for performance and extreme adventure. Water resistant to 500m and having a helium valve at 9 o’clock, these watches are the perfect companion in all diving excursions. Moreover, its reliability has been put to the test by Team Australia’s offshore pilots for several years, performing perfectly.
