Worldwide famous for the world’s slimmest watch equipped with a calendar function, the Edox brand of watches maintains its elevated standards when it comes to watch making techniques, mechanical complications and outstanding designs.
One of the pioneering brands in this highly competitive industry, Edox was established back in 1884 and it continues to impress the international media with its timepiece releases that approach more and more complicated functions and more and more innovative designs. Christian Ruefli-Flury’s vision of a brand that would develop rapidly came true and Edox is nowadays definitely a name with resonance in the world of watch manufacturing.
A special Collection introduced this year by Edox comes to celebrate the World Rally Championship and it features amazingly progressive timepieces equipped with features specific to this sport. Amongst the models included in the Edox WRC line we can mention: the Edox WRC Limited Editions, the Edox WRC Chronorally Watch, the Edox WRC Rally Timer Day Date and last, but not least, the new WRC Rally Timer Big Date Watch.
Being amongst the star-timepieces of the collection, the new WRC Rally Timer Big Date Watch maintains the same dynamic and sporty look embraced by the other watches included in this collection. The case of this watch measures 42 mm in diameter and it is crafted from stainless steel. The design of the new WRC Rally Timer Big Date Watch is all black due to the black PVD treatment applied on the case and dial. The case construction guarantees water diving of up to 100 meters without harming in any way the mechanism sustaining the functions of the watch.
Considering the sporty approach of design that all the watches from the WRC line embrace, this one too makes use of features to express dynamism. The black dial uses orange detailing and over-sized Arabic numerals. The functions are arranged as to provide perfect legibility and so we have the functions of hours and minutes shown through central hands, while the function of the seconds is rendered through a sub-dial located just above 6 o’clock. The big date function can be spotted under 12 o’clock, being displayed through a very discreet window.
Being amongst the official timekeeping instrument from the WRC the movement equipping the new WRC Rally Timer Big Date Watch couldn’t be anything but impressive. The mechanism is defined as the Edox 64 caliber, based on Ronda 6004.B and it guarantees the extreme efficiency of the features provided on the dial.
Just like the other timepieces from the Edox WRC collection, the new WRC Rally Timer Big Date Watch comes accompanied by a sporty black rubber strap that has attached a folding clasp made from stainless steel and engraved with the Edox logo.
