Edox’s Grand Ocean Extreme Sailing Series Edition may be built for the open water, but it looks just as good on dry land
Housed in a 45mm stainless steel case, the Edox Grand Ocean Extreme Sailing Series Edition has blue highlights throughout its dial and bezel to break up an essentially a monochromic colour scheme that exudes seriousness. Its design is a versatile one, as it wouldn’t look out of place at the office or a casual weekend luncheon.
As the official timepiece for the Extreme Sailing Series, it is well equipped to keep up with its sailors’ demands. This latest iteration incorporates a ceramic unidirectional bezel with PVD coating for scratch resistance, a tachymeter for added functionality, and water resistance to 300m. A workhorse Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement ticks inside this timepiece, which ensures reliability.
Familiar triple-horn lug design aside, the watch has its hands shaped like those on compasses, in a nod at its sailing pedigree. Eagle-eyed observers will also spot the atypical marking for the chronograph minute totaliser’s sub-dial – the first four minutes are denoted in blue to mark the countdown to the start of every Extreme Sailing Series race.
