The new SkyDiver Automatic Limited Edition honours the Edox heritage of classic models designed for paratroopers and the military in the 1960s and 1970s. This new timepiece combines the practical functionality of a dive watch and the style and aesthetics of a precision pilot’s watch.
The beautiful case, black dial, striking indices, oversized crown and domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal faithfully reflect a SkyDiver watch designed by Edox in the 1960s. The black dial reflects the precision instruments that once accompanied adventurers conquering land, sea or air.
But the materials and construction of the contemporary SkyDiver Limited Edition are pure 21st century. Military styling runs right through the SkyDiver’s DNA, from its semi-matt finish dial to the solid case back proudly portraying the emblem of a paratrooper unit.
The SkyDiver Limited Edition complements its rugged military vibe with practical functionality for any adventure, be it on land, sea or in the air, including a ceramic, scratch-resistant diving bezel and water-resistance to 300m.
The hands and indices are coated with Super-LumiNova in beige, another vintage touch. There’s also a date window at three o’ clock. The SkyDiver Limited Edition houses the Edox Calibre 80 automatic movement, manufactured by Swiss specialist Sellita.
Limited to 600 pieces, the hand-assembled timepiece features a carefully crafted stainless steel case, beautifully offset by a soft leather strap. The buyer also get a choice of two straps, easily swapped via the smartly designed but simple to operate quick-release spring bars on the watch lugs.
