Sliding a 40-pound “stone” down a narrow channel of ice and aiming to be
centimetre-perfect takes skill, tactical savvy and precision timing.
And with all players in a team helping guide the shot to its target, known
as the “house”, curling is the ultimate team sport on ice – and one of the
world’s oldest, with the forerunner of the modern game dating back to the
1500s in Scotland.
Teamwork and precision are also vital components of top-class
watchmaking, which is why boutique Swiss watchmaker Edox is proud to
be the official timekeeper of the sport’s governing body, the World Curling
Now Edox introduces two beautiful new models to celebrate this
partnership, one for men (45mm) and a dazzling all-white women’s piece
(including the user-friendly rubber strap) at 38mm.
Both are powered by ultra-accurate quartz chronograph movements and
have rugged stainless steel cases offset with beautiful ceramic bezels.
The men’s jet-black model, with its blue-accented indices, also includes a
tachymetric scale on the outer perimeter of the dial.
The dials of both timepieces sport sub-counters and a date display, plus a
striking curling logo imprint.
Whether you’re on the ice playing, or in the stands watching this fascinating
sport, the new Edox World Curling Federation models are the ideal
timepieces to celebrate “romancing the stone”.
