Review: Edox Grand Ocean Extreme Sailing

Edox’s Grand Ocean Extreme Sailing Series Edition may be built for the open water, but it looks just as good on dry land.

Jun 29, 2016 | By Jason Kwong

Housed in a 45mm stainless steel case, the Edox Grand Ocean Extreme Sailing Series Edition has blue highlights throughout its dial and bezel to break up an essentially a monochromic color scheme that exudes seriousness. Its design is a versatile one, as it wouldn’t look out of place at office or a casual weekend luncheon.

As the official timepiece for the Extreme Sailing Series, it is well equipped to keep up with its sailors’ demands. This latest iteration incorporates a ceramic unidirectional bezel with PVD coating for scratch resistance, a tachymeter for added functionality, and water resistance to 300m. A workhorse Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement ticks inside this timepiece, which ensures reliability.

Familiar triple-horn lug design aside, the watch has its hands shaped like those on compasses, in a nod at its sailing pedigree. Eagle-eyed observers will also spot the atypical marking for the chronograph minute totaliser’s sub-dial – the first four minutes are denoted in blue to mark the countdown to the start of every Extreme Sailing Series race.
