21st Century facelift for edox Geoscope Classic
In 1971, leading Swiss watchmaker Edox introduced the Geoscope, the world’s first genuine WorldTimer wristwatch. It was a big (42mm), bold and beautiful creation and immedi- ately became a collectors’ favourite.
Now, to mark the 130th anniversary of Edox, the Geoscope returns to en- thral a whole new generation of watch lovers.
The original Geoscope’s unique col- ourful planisphere dial showed the globe as viewed from the South Pole. An inner bezel, displaying 24 divi- sions, made one complete revolution every 24 hours and the watch also showed GMT time, plus the sun’s po- sition.
The new Geoscope Limited Edition (just 300 available worldwide, indi- vidually numbered 001 to 300) is an updated version of the original clas- sic, which is still a highly sought-after collector’s piece.
The Geoscope Limited Edition retains the inner rotating bezel with its in- credible “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 wa- ter-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.
Family-owned independent boutique watchmaker Edox, based in Les Genevez, makes a range of rugged, technically advanced, superbly engi- neered precision watches that com- plement everything from the world’s most difficult motorsport event, the Dakar Rally, to the Extreme Sailing Series and the more sedate, but no less intense, sport of curling.
To celebrate its 130th anniversa- ry, Edox is releasing new editions of several of its most influential time- pieces; the Geoscope, the amazing 500m water-resistant Hydro Sub and an elegant timepiece for its classic, ultra-slim Les Bémonts range, the Les Bémonts Open Vision Automatic.
