Edox Celebrates 130 Years of Watchmaking Excellence
Boutique swiss watchmaker Edox has been making exquisitely engineered, high-performance, precision time- pieces since 1884.
a family owned independent busi- ness, Edox (“hour” in ancient Greek) has been at the forefront of horolog- ical innovations for 130 years, some unrivalled to this day.
and what better way to celebrate a 130th birthday than to release a new Edox timepiece, a unique memento of the company’s brilliant journey through time.
The Edox Limited Edition 130th anniversary (130 available worldwide, individually numbered from 001 to 130) is an elegant, classic design with an automatic soprod 90 movement at its heart.
Presented in a special collectors’ box, the Limited Edition is water-resist- ant to 3 aTM (30 m) and includes day, date, month and moon phase display.
as with all Edox models, the Limited Edition is beautifully fin- ished and its caseback is specially engraved to mark the company’s 130th anniversary.
The Limited Edition is born of the same watchmaking passion that was at the heart of Edox’s founding all those years ago when gifted watch- maker Christian Rufli-flury gave his wife Pauline a unique 25th birth- day present - a pocket watch he had designed.
Touched by his gift, Pauline persuaded her husband to set out on his own.
Thus, in 1884, Edox was born and in the 130 years since it has forged an amazing path for an independent, family-run watchmaker.
among Edox’s achievements are revolutionary water-resistant models (delfin, 200m) in 1961 and the Hydrosub (500m, 1965), the striking Geoscope (1976, the first watch to display time in all world time zones and a collector’s classic today) and a world-record slimmest calendar watch (Les Bémonts Ultra slim, 1988).
in 2006, Edox launched a range of sports watches incorporating cutting edge materials such as titanium, car- bon and ceramic.
Today the Les Genevez-based watch- maker is official timekeeper for the world’s most gruelling rally event, the dakar Rally, the Extreme sailing series and last year signed a deal to become official timekeeper of the world Curling federation.
