BASELNEWS 2010The redesign of an icon: EDOX Class-1 Chronoffshore Limited Edition
All the useful functions of a sports watch are present in the new Class-1 Chronoffshore Limited Edition. Equipped with a tachometric scale and a robust, reliable chronograph calibre, this impressive toy has, however, undergone some changes since the Class-1 collection was launched in 2006.
The unidirectional, semi-ceramic, semi-steel bezel is now two-tone and the new decor facilitates its handling. The steel case has been redesigned with squarer horns and with a new, sharper profile. The moulded push-pieces have been replaced by traditional round push-pieces. The black carbon dial, decked with blue details, reinforces the overall impression of the new model and emphasises its powerful masculinity and robustness. As with the other watches in the Class-1 collection, a comfortable black rubber strap will delight the most demanding of sportsmen. Water-resistant to 500 metres like most of the Class-1 models, the new Chronoffshore is equipped with the Edox 011 calibre, which is derived from the Valjoux 7750.
With a limited edition of 250 pieces, the new Class-1 Chronoffshore Limited Edition underlines Edox mission as the official timekeeper of the Class-1 World Powerboat Championship.
