The Grand Ocean Automatic Chronograph functions an Edox 012 motion (according to ETA A07. 211 Valgranges). This motion is really a
bit of a mystery because it is not listed within the booklet that includes the watch, nor on the Edox internet website. As far as I
can inform it is a variation of their 011 chronograph motion. Having a 48mm case diameter and 17mm case height the watch is fairly
significant. It is certainly larger than what you’d anticipate from taking a look at the photos. The watch functions a all-natural
rubber bracelet and anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass. The case is constructed from black PVD with gold colored PVD
particulars along with a fixed gold colored PVD notched bezel. Water resistance is as much as one hundred meters. Becoming an
automatic chronograph, the watch has the normal set of complications: automatic self-winding motion, a 12 hour chronograph and date
Plenty of fascinating small particulars highlight the nautical theme from the watch. The little seconds hand features a compass
like style, and also the gold colored hour and minute hands add to this theme. The distinctive style from the hands can also be
present inside a compass like relief on the black face from the replica watch. 1 issue I observed following utilizing the watch to get a
couple of days is the fact that the gold colored hands are difficult to read on the black face in vibrant sunlight. There is also
no lume whatsoever, so as far as legibility goes the watch does not score leading points.
Nonetheless, below regular circumstances its perfectly fine and definitely not poor sufficient to become annoying. On the chapter
ring is really a tachymiler rather than a tachymeter. I am guessing this ties in with nautical miles. On the back from the watch,
you are able to see the balance wheel from the motion trough a bit porthole. A map from the world’s oceans finishes the nicely in
depth steel back.
