Edox has an impressive relationship with rally car racing and a whole series of watches labeled the WRC line, in which not only design, but functionality are necessary attributes to make the perfect watch for the sport. In this series, there are a lot of really cool pieces with incredible designs, but one of our favorites, is the Edox WRC Collection Xtreme Pilot III Limited Edition Chronograph 10303 TIN NIN.
The Edox WRC Collection Xtreme Pilot III Limited Edition Chronograph 10303 TIN NIN is ultra sporty, and has a very unique design. The 45mm case is made of titanium to help eliminate weight from it’s bulky build. The watches left handed Chronograph pushers help keep their large and unusual design from digging into your wrist, while still giving it easy operation. The pushers are very large, and while this is helpful with functioning the chrono, it also gives the watch an awesome look. The electric green anodized aluminum lower button is to start/stop your chrono, while the upper button is to reset. A little different than normal operation, but still very easy to use.
The carbon fiber dial is protected by sapphire crystal and adds to its sporty look, also contributing a 3 dimensional feel. The matte center of the dial with actual seconds and chronograph minutes is very easy to read and distinguish. Both the chronograph minute and second hand are in the same electric green as the other details of the watch and help make it very easy to separate the actual time from the chronograph time. There is also a tachymeter on the chapter ring to aid in measuring the cars in motion.
The tire tread rubber strap along with the rim inspired case back make it very clear this piece was intended for racing. Other factors, like durability, shock resistance, and accuracy were taken into strong consideration when choosing the movement for this race piece. The Edox quartz caliber 103, which is a base Ronda 5021.D, was the perfect fit for the necessary function and durability.
Overall, Edox did an impressive job on this piece. It’s a large and fun watch with striking colors and great high quality build. The Edox WRC Collection Xtreme Pilot III Limited Edition Chronograph 10303 TIN NIN retails for $2,800 and is limited to only 1,000 pieces for the world.
