Not sure if everybody has gotten a look at Edox's new Skydiver
Limited Edition yet.

Actually there are two watches, with one having a matte black
dial, and one having a dark green gradient dial. Both with eye-
catching hands, and markers with SLN in either green, or beige
on them. In addition to that you have 42mm stainless steel cases,
300m WR, domed sapphire crystals, unidirectional bezels with
ceramic inserts, leather straps, and Caliber 80 beneath it all.


A few pics...


















Monochrome Watches, as well as Edox with a lot more information...

Best looking EDOX I’ve seen..maybe ever. A no date window version would be a Home Run
And that is actually saying something right #four?! 😉

Maybe that no date will be the next variation that’s
on the horizon. 😀..It would be very cool to see that’s
for sure.

By the way, it would be nice for fans if these weren’t
limited editions in the future too, right?!

Really want to thank you for sharing your thoughts sir !

Very nice piece. With date or without. Love the gradient green dial. But, besides the case back. I'm not seeing anything sky diverish about it. In fact if you didn't tell me it was an Edox. I may have mistaken it for an Oris Divers Sixty-Five. Like they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Maybe they should call it the Sky Divers Sixty-Five. :D :cool:(y)

It definitely has a Diver’s Sixty-Five vibe happening with it. 😉
And if it does look like something from Edox, it’s something
we haven’t seen lately. Or evidently in about 50 years from
them. It really goes to that old saying, what’s old is new again
right?! 😊

Some phenomenal points as usual sir. ..Thanks so so much for
giving your two cents Forza !!

Agree, a nice looking watch with a bit of Seiko 62MAS resemblance there with the large crown, long lugs and the coin edge bezel.

Thanks Tom
You are very very welcome Steve, and thank YOU as well ! :)

It's interesting how designs, or styles have always seemed to resemble
each other throughout the years right sir?

From decade to decade there are styles that can either be a fad, or
something that is classic, and always carries on. With designs like
this Skydiver, and 62MAS being on that classic side of things. (y)(y)

Very nice! We have arrived at a true watch Renaissance! Scores of well known and less known brands have dusted off their back catalogues and are treating us with a wave of vintage delights. Or they have come to the conclusion that those designs are just perfect for what they are. (Or just plain lazy :D).

Now that's a classic.

Classic, and vintage seems to be the name of the game as of
late guys. ;)(y) It’s been a real trend for a while now it seems
thankfully, and really in a lot of ways it is perhaps just beginning
right?! Because we know that many of these watch brands have
pretty big watch catalogs to draw from. :D

Add to that all of the new modern watches the brands have, and
it’s a win win honestly. ..The exciting part is wondering, or seeing
what is on the horizon on both fronts !!

As well as of course hearing what you have to say. Thanks a ton !!!
