The global trend of black wristwatches continues. The last in a raw comes from the Swiss manufacturer Edox. The new Class-1 Ghost Ship Limited Edition Watch is all-black model that features an amazing open-worked dial and a transparent case back that shows the inner beauty of its mechanism.
The latest member of the famous Edox Class-1 collection is produced in the limited series of only 100 specimens worldwide. Each new timepiece is distinguished by highly reliable technology, as well as cutting-edge design.
This Edox novelty is housed in a round, bold case crafted from stainless steel and finished with a sleek black PVD coating. The masculine case incorporates a black ceramic bezel with a 60-minute tachymeter scale. The large-sized case measures 45mm in diameter.
On the right side of the case, there is a black PVD coated crown, as well as two oversized PVD coated chronograph pushers. The case is protected on both sides by scratch-proof and glare-proof sapphire crystals. It is constructed to resist water pressure of up to 200 meters (about 660 feet).
Edox Class-1 Ghost Ship Limited Edition timepiece is powered by the in-house manufactured Caliber 95 movement with its most intimate and intricate details. The mechanism provides the usual set of functions (hours, minutes and seconds), as well as chronograph functionality.
The new Edox Ghost Ship Limited Edition watch comes with a structured black rubber strap ending with a stainless steel buckle engraved with Edox logo. As it is reported by the Jura-based manufacturer, the new watch will be available starting from September 2013.
The Edox Class-1 collection is dedicated to the Class-1 World Powerboat Championship. The Swiss watchmaker is the official Timekeeper for the challenging race. Class-1 World Powerboat Championship is considered as one of the most spectacular motorsports in the world. It is the ultimate adrenalin rush on water with speeds at more than 200 km/h, while racing neck and neck with other competitors. Besides the Class-1 World Powerboat Championships, Edox is also the Timekeeper for the Dakar Rally and the Extreme Sailing Series.
If you like Edox watches, I also recommend the official timekeeper of the 2013 Dakar Rally – Edox Chronodakar Limited Edition 2013 Watch, as well as the last year’s Edox Dakar Limited Edition model.
