Timing for Champions – Edox – Chronically X-Treme Pilot
When the going gets tough – the tough get going. And nothing in world motorsport is tougher than rallycross, where man and machine must work as one, against the clock, against their rivals and against the elements. Only the best, and most focused, drivers will triumph. That unconquerable spirit also inspires Edox as timing partner of the FIA World Rallycross Championship.
The best drivers expect only the best from their equipment and the new limited edition Edox Chronorally X-Treme Pilot (555 pieces worldwide) is the perfect timekeeping accessory in a sport where split-second timing is critical to success. Like the rallycross cars themselves, the Chronorally is a beautiful ‘machine’. It’s big and bold with a 48mm titanium case and packed with an array of chronograph functions, all controlled by a Calibre 38s movement. The iconic, oversized pushers at two o’clock and four o’clock allow the wearer – even with driving gloves – to measure lap times with exquisite precision. The green-and-yellow dial, evoking the dashboard controls of a rally car, allows functions such as tachymeter, the 1/10 chronograph, retrograde day and big date window to stand out with maximum visibility. Coating the hands and indices with Superluminova ensures the Chronorally X-Treme Pilot goes the extra mile for readability, whatever the conditions.
Weighing just 130 grams, water-resistant to 100m and with a robust sapphire crystal to protect that striking dial, the Chronorally X-Treme Pilot continues Edox’s long association with the very best in motorsport, be it on asphalt, dirt, sand or the snow. The yellow-stitched leather strap and car-wheel case back add the perfect finishing touches to a timepiece that seamlessly blends form and functionality infused with the DNA of motorsport.
FIA World Rallycross Championship
The FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy is head-to-head, short, sharp racing on mixed surfaces (dirt and asphalt) contained within amphitheatre venues. High pro le drivers are equipped with RX Supercars with over 600bhp and an acceleration of 0-60mph in less than two seconds. World RX debuted in 2014 with a calendar including events in Argentina, Turkey, Canada and throughout Europe. Building on the success of World RX’s first-ever seasons and the burgeoning momentum behind the series, the 2020 calendar will incorporate 11 rounds across three continents. Along the way, it will visit some of the world’s most historic rallycross tracks, while maintaining two exciting challenges in the shape of Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit and the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.
Like time itself, Swiss boutique watchmaker Edox never stands still. Founder Christian Rue i-Flury was driven by his heart when, in 1884, he made a pocket watch for his beloved wife Pauline’s 25th birthday. Delighted, she convinced him to set up his own company – Edox. Over the decades Edox has forged a reputation as the ‘‘water champion’’ of the watch world, creating world-leading divers’ watches. Rue i-Flury would no doubt be amazed and honoured how his legacy has flourished over the past 135 years. One of the few remaining family-owned Swiss watchmakers, Edox proudly acknowledges its heritage but also embraces innovation and imagination in its collections. Today, Edox is known for its highly water-resistant timepieces, complex hand-polished watch cases and traditional hand assembling.
