Introducing the Edox Les Bemonts Shade of Time

Swiss watch brand Edox introduces a striking addition to its Les Bemonts collection – The Les Bemonts Automatic Shade of Time.

Note that “Les Bémonts” is a pictoresque forest situated just a few meters from the EDOX factory, and that’s why the brand decided to use this name.

The timepiece collection features classical design with pure and timeless lines and they are all equipped with Swiss movements; from the automatic chronograph to Ultra Slim quartz movement.

The brand created in the 1884 by Christian Ruefli-Flury in Biel presents today a new addition to this collection. But did you know that in 1998 Edox engineers and watchmakers developed the world’s slimmest calendar watch, named “Les Bémonts Ultra Slim” collection ? The movement of this piece had a thickness of only 1.4 mm, which is a technical record still held by Edox to this day.

Let us not stay in the past; It’s time to look rather on what will be available from next April. Because yes, Edox brings today a new dimension in time to its superb Les Bemonts family with its new « Shade of Time » watch.

At the heart of this gorgeaous piece we will find a Swiss-made automatic movement craftsmanship featuring 156 components. This movement is the EDOX 85 (Automatic self-winding) which is based upon the renown ETA 2824 movement.
Thanks to the open dial and case back made with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystal you’ll have the chance to see the heart of this “skeleton” movement.

The drum and barrel-cover have been opened up, displaying the fascinating rhythm of the mainspring and other components.

Even if you’re not a big fan of skeleton watches I’m sure that you’ll like the simplicity of this one, because visually the “Shade of Time” has a really elegant and sophisticated appearance.

The 42 mm steel case of this gorgeous piece is beautifully complemented by a classic leather strap.

With round line and delicate curves, the “Shade of Time” collection includes 6 variations and I must admit that my favorite is the blue one… But hey, this is just a personal opinion and I’m sure you’ll find the one that suits you best.
