BASELNEWS 2011A bad boy version: Edox Xtreme Pilot III Limited Edition
The WRC watch collection is manifestly dedicated to rally drivers, those true virtuosos of the tarmac, snow and ice, and to all devotees of the automobile and motor-racing world. This new limited edition is sporty in style, masculine and very “bad boy”, with a black carbon dial and powered by a chronograph movement that is sturdy, shock-resistant and extremely reliable.
At once, as in motor racing, the over-sized push-piece captures the attention, its electric green evoking the lights indicating the start of a race. Designed for WRC drivers, the watch is in ultra-light titanium, with some components finely coated in black PVD for a decidedly virile look. The movement, rotated through 180 degrees, makes for instinctive and enjoyable use.
As ever, the WRC collection features many inspired details: wheel rims actually embossed on the case back, green, oversize push-piece in anodised aluminium and a tachymeter scale on the dial for measuring objects in motion. The new Xtreme Pilot III Limited Edition is a real tool for drivers. It is limited to 1,000 exclusive pieces and comes in a personalised case.
Edox has been the official time-keeper to the World Rally Championships since 2010.
