Edox Delfin Mecano Automatic – the latest addition in the Edox Watches Delfin family, ’The Water Champion’’ of the watch world. Please check the press release below
Sixty years ago, the Edox Delfin set the benchmark for dive watches.
With its innovative double O-ring system and reinforced case back, the Delfin was known as the Water Champion of the watch industry, a timepiece tough enough to run like clockwork at crushing depths of 300m.
Now, with the new Delfin Mecano, boutique Swiss watchmaker brings a 21st Century twist to this legendary wristwatch. The Delfin Mecano is forged from the same DNA as its brilliant 1960s predecessor, able to function perfectly at up to 200m deep, thanks to the Double O-ring ‘seals’ and the screw-down crown. Edox has given the watch face an eye-catching makeover with a skeletonised dial and movement exposing some of the intricate motions of the Automatic Calibre 853.
Whatever the lighting – or however deep you may be under the waves – the Delfin Mecano’s display is always crystal clear, thanks to the SuperLuminova coating on the hands and indices. The transparent case back reveals even more of the magical world of mechanical watches and this 43mm diameter timepiece provides up to 42 hours of power reserve. The 12-sided bezel which beautifully frames the skeletonised dial reflects the shape of Delfin watch bezels from the 1970s and is a reminder that while Edox continually pushes the boundaries of watchmaking it never forgets its heritage.
The Edox Delfin Mecano – a water champion of the new century.
Edox – Delfin
First introduced in 1961, the Delfin is an emblematic collection with an iconic design and a true timekeeping pioneer. It was the first watch to use the ‘Double O ring» system which, with a reinforced case back, gave it 200m water resistance. Today, this incredible collection is still known as ’’The Water Champion’’ and remains the explorers’ first choice.
Like time itself, Swiss boutique watchmaker Edox never stands still. Founder Christian Ruefli-Flury was driven by his heart when, in 1884, he made a pocket watch for his beloved wife Pauline’s 25th birthday. Delighted, she convinced him to set up his own company – Edox. Over the decades Edox has forged a reputation as ’’The Water Champion’’ of the watch world, creating world-leading divers’ watches. Ruefli-Flury would no doubt be amazed and honoured how his legacy has flourished over the past 135 years.
One of the few remaining family-owned Swiss watchmakers, Edox proudly acknowledges its heritage but also embraces innovation and imagination in its collections. Today, Edox is known for its highly water-resistant timepieces, complex hand-polished watch cases and traditional hand assembling.
