There are many different diver watch brands. Edox is one of them. To give you some background, Edox is a Swiss watch manufacturer who since 1884 is developing and making high quality watches. Christian Ruefli-Flury, the founder of Edox, was a highly talented watchmaker, that's why it may use the title “Maître-Horloger”.
Let's go back in time…
For the name Edox we have to go back to Ancient Greece. In the old Greek language Edox means “measuring of time”. When you look at the Edox logo you see that it is the symbol of the earliest way in how to measure time, the hourglass.
