BASELNEWS 2011Extraordinary watch: Edox CLASS-1 Chronoffshore Automatic
The famous Powerboat Class-I races, the real Formula 1 of the seas, belong to the world of the thrilling spectacle, and give rise to adrenalin rushes, even in the hearts of the most devoted fans. The Class-1 collection is undoubtedly among the most legendary of the Edox collections and has succeeded in attracting a loyal clientele that finds its soul mate in this extraordinary watch.
In this new version, the details are still as polished and distinctive: the sturdy and sharply contoured case middle features a new bezel in scratch-resistant black ceramic, a high-tech material used in the world of ocean racing. The black carbon dial, featuring a giant-sized “1”, evoking the Class-1 collection, gives a look that exudes virility, athleticism and animal magnetism. Made of high tech steel, the classic Class-1 plate embellishes the flank while the case back is embossed with the profile of the propeller that powers these super-boats.
To meet very high functional criteria, to be shock-resistant and above all watertight, the new Class-1 Chronoffshore Automatic highlights its technical attributes: the automatic helium valve and screwed-in crowns and push-pieces guarantee water-resistance to 500 metres.
