Boutique Swiss watchmaker Edox adds another outstanding timepiece to its family of rugged sports watches with the launch of the SkyDiver Limited Edition. Honouring the Edox heritage of classic models designed for paratroopers and the military in the 1960s and 1970s, SkyDiver Automatic Limited Edition combines the best of two worlds – the no-nonsense functionality of a dive watch and the style and aesthetics of a precision pilot’s watch.
The beautiful case, black dial, striking indices, oversized crown and domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal faithfully reflect an Edox SkyDiver watch designed by Edox in the 1960s. The black dial reflects the precision instruments that once accompanied adventurers conquering land, sea or air – the Fly, Drive and Dive challenge that suit Edox watches to a tee.
But the materials and construction of the contemporary Edox SkyDiver Limited Edition are pure 21st century. Military styling runs right through the SkyDiver’s DNA, from its semi-matt finish dial to the solid case back proudly portraying the emblem of a paratrooper unit.
The Edox SkyDiver Limited Edition complements its rugged military vibe with practical functionality for any adventure, be it on land, sea or in the air, including a ceramic, scratch-resistant diving bezel and water resistance to 300m.
The hands and indices are coated with Super-LumiNova in beige, another vintage touch, and there’s also a date window at three o’clock. The Edox SkyDiver Limited Edition (600 pieces) runs with military precision, thanks to its Edox Calibre 80 automatic movement, manufactured by Swiss specialist Sellita.
The hand-assembled timepiece features a carefully crafted stainless steel case, beautifully offset by a soft leather strap. You also get a choice of two straps, easily swapped via the cleverly designed but simple to operate quick-release spring bars on the watch lugs.
Contemporary in character, the Edox SkyDiver Limited Edition reinforces the pioneering spirit of adventure that has driven Edox from its very beginnings. So unleash your adventurous spirit with the new Edox SkyDiver Automatic Limited Edition.

EDOX – SkyDiver
Rumoured to be launched following a Swiss colonel secret request in the 1960s, the new SkyDiver collection pays tribute to paratroopers and the extreme conditions they might face – on land, air or sea. Displaying a vintage military look, the SkyDiver is a reliable timepiece protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a stainless steel case. Water-resistant up to 30ATM / 300m, the SkyDiver will remain readable at such depth thanks to a high standard of night visibility on watches – Super-LumiNova – which covers its hands and indexes. Whether its origin is fact or fantastic, the SkyDiver is a truly hand-assembled timepiece ready to face real adventures.
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.
Edox. A company shaped over time. A company shaping time.
