Edox – Grand Ocean Automatic Chronograph

The entire Grand Ocean collection pays tribute to the world of regattas, that nautical discipline where technical sophistication, precision and team spirit make all the difference. To illustrate this philosophy, the Grand Ocean collection now features the new Automatic Chronograph.

Operated by a powerful and reliable mechanical chronograph movement, the new Grand Ocean is available in a version with a black PVD finish that evokes the dizzying depths of ocean abysses. Besides the dial featuring the classic wind rose of the Grand Ocean collection, the seconds hand represents the famous nautical compass indicator.

The new Grand Ocean Automatic Chronograph features luminescent indices that provide optimum legibility at all times of the day, while a “tachymiler” embellishes the flange, enabling the user to measure the speed of a moving object.

The case back is engraved with the typical Grand Ocean motif, with its porthole allowing a penetrating view into the very heart of the movement.

Fitted with a black rubber strap that is very comfortable to wear, the watch is water-resistant to 100 metres.

The new Grand Ocean Automatic Chronograph has an elegant, sporty, luxury look, while at the same time offering all the classic, practical functions.

      Thanks for the compliments …If a person is rich and passionate about watches it is worth buying them 🙂 ..but I know that there are many other brands that produce and sell watches less expensive but excellent in quality and design.
