Edox Delfin Chronograph Rose PVD: dolphin or goldfish?
Over five decades ago Edox launched the Delfin. The original Delfin had a double caseback and double ‘O’ ring construction for the crown and pushers which gave the watch exceptional strength and underwater protection; revolutionary at that time. The new Delfin swims in its predecessor’s, uhm, fins?
Delfin – The Original had a cool nickname. The watch was dubbed The Water Champion because of the fact it was water-resistant to an 200m, an amazing achievement back in 1961 when it was launched. Thanks to a double caseback and double ‘O’ ring construction for the crown and pushers the Delfin felt like a fish in water.
This year Edox introduces an updated version of The Water Champion, the Delfin Chronograph Rose PVD. It’s a modern sports watch that’s packed with functionality (including tachymeter readout, date display, dive bezel and chronograph sub-dials) and engineered to equal the qualities of the 1961 original Delfin.
