Not such a long time ago, we acquainted you with a genuinely gorgeous, yet available, legacy jump watch by Edox, the SkyDiver Military . Visual matters separated, the primary concern of revenue with this watch was the place where it comes from… It depends on a fairly secretive 1973 jump watch, found in the brand’s files. By and by, the outcome was a re-edition in steel with all the elements of a decent, available jumper. Today, the brand presents another limited edition, actually dependent on this 1970s plan, with an intriguing material. Meet the new Edox SkyDiver Military Bronze Limited Edition.
Behind the Edox SkyDiver Military lies a serious cool story. As indicated by the brand, “a mysterious attracting found the chronicles of Swiss watchmaker Edox” went out to be “the sketch of a tragically missing watch, the SkyDiver.” Along with the sketch, there was “a scribbled note perusing: 1973. Extraordinary creation in carefully limited edition.” Yet, a year ago, the brand found the clarification behind this puzzler, which prompted the formation of the advanced re-edition introduced here .
According to a resigned Edox watchmaker, the SkyDiver was reputed to be a mysterious task for a baffling, affluent Swiss colonel. The mysterious colonel needed a restrictive watch for world class mountain paratroopers under his command. The watch must be trustworthy and tough – much the same as his soldiers. He picked Edox in view of the brand’s incredibly water-safe watches, ready to deal with any circumstance the paratroopers may confront – ashore, air or ocean. The colonel demanded complete mystery. This prompted the making of the 1973 Edox SkyDiver.
The Edox SkyDiver Military Bronze Limited Edition
Following last year’s steel limited edition, the brand currently reveals another model, actually holding similar determinations, yet with another (and popular) material, just as a similarly stylish dial. Compared to the steel model, there are further updates looking into the issue wristband, actually keeping a genuinely sensible cost though.
The new Edox SkyDiver Military Bronze has all the exemplary components of a vintage jumper with 1970s roots. The case is 42mm in width, with a normal Sub-like plan, sharp crown-monitors and strong screw-down crown and hauls. Present day contacts can be valued with the presence of a sapphire gem on top and, new to this 2020 model, a dark cleaned clay embed for the unidirectional bezel, with the vital hour long scale (the 2019 steel model included an aluminum insert).
The case is made out of bronze and secured by an enemy of finger impression nano-covering. Albeit the case will in any case build up an extraordinary patina, don’t anticipate that it should “grow” green oxide in general yet anticipate a sensible measure of green discolouration. The caseback, which comes into contact with your skin, is printed with a parachute theme and produced using hypo-allergenic treated steel. The watch is water-impervious to 300m. For this bronze model, no metallic arm band except for rather two cowhide lashes are incorporated: one in dark calfskin, the other in smooth earthy colored leather.
The dial of this Edox SkyDiver Military Bronze Limited Edition has been refreshed with a slope tone. The focal point of the dial is dull dim while the outskirts is completely dark – adding a cool vintage factor. The applied markers and hands are gold plated to coordinate the bronze case and generally loaded up with white Super-LumiNova. Uplifting news compared to the steel model is that this bronze form currently has a no-date display.

An easy decision development that will do the work consummately and keep the cost generally low.
