Switzerland’s watchmaker Edox has forged a reputation for exceptional and professional diver’s watches since its ground-breaking Hydro-Sub released in 1965. The new spectacular SharkMan 1 Limited Edition is no exception.
The new Edox SharkMan 1 Limited Edition is a outstanding 45mm professional diver’s watch. Just 388 of this high-tech ultra-water-resistant timepiece will be manufactured.
Water-resistant to 500m the SharkMan 1 Limited Edition sports a spectacular blue/green dial, chronograph functionality, date display and a special engraved case back. The stainless steel watch case mirrors the magnificent blue of the Caribbean Sea. The watch will be available as per June/July 2016.
The SharkMan 1 Limited Edition comes in a distinctive box with a choice of water-resistant black rubber or nylon fabric strap and is the perfect, rugged timepiece for all water-borne activities.
Now world champion freeform ice diver and Edox watch ambassador Christian Redl – ”The SharkMan” – is leading the fight to bring global attention to the plight of the shark.
Redl will play a starring role in a new movie documentary to be released in 2017, Shark Rescue, which will aim to bust the myths about sharks and spell out what needs to be done to save this amazing animal from oblivion. And, as Redl travels the world’s oceans on his mission, he will have then new Edox SharkMan Limited Edition on his wrist.
Feared. Hunted. Endangered.
In 2015, close to 100 million sharks were slaughtered, either for food, their fins, or as by-product in other catches. And sharks can instil instant fear into humans – but Christian Redl fears for the future of the sharks. The Austrian “Iceman” is out to debunk the myths about a species that has survived on Earth for hundreds of millions of years.
Unless something is done, the shark will disappear from the world’s oceans, irreparably damaging the delicate ecological balance that all sea life depends on and which could have devastating long-term effects for mankind itself.
