Edox is no newcomer to the industry, founded in 1884 in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. It introduced several aquatic innovations in the 1960s, including the renowned Delfin dive watch with a patented crown system. This double waterproof joint allowed for a 500-metre depth rating, unheard of at the time, and became a hit with both divers and boatsmen. The SkyDiver Neptunian is based on the elusive SkyDiver from 1973 (and modern counterpart), and more than triples the rating to 1,000 metres.
The stainless steel case is 44mm in diameter and 15.6mm in height and has a 3mm thick sapphire crystal. A gold PVD option is also available. An integrated crown guard protects the screw-down crown and a helium escape valve ensures safe decompression if saturation diving. The ceramic bezel has standard markings without a detailed scale (or numerals) and the solid case back features an engraving of Neptune, Roman God of the Sea.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
