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. MOVE­MENT Self-wind­ing chronograph ETA Valjoux 7750 with 44-hour power re­serve

CASE 45mm in stain­less steel, wa­ter re­sis­tant to 100m STRAP Black rub­ber with fold­ing clasp PRICE Un­avail­able
