EDOX N-Pole 42.195 Limited Edition ICE RUNNER

Fancy doing the London Marathon? How about the New York Marathon? Not challenging enough? What about running the grueling North Pole Marathon?



Surely that takes a whole new breed of runner. Aside the obvious toe crunching 26.2 miles, physical and mental pain, competitors must also brave a course entirely on ice and those ice-cream headache inducing temperatures.



Edox has new kind of ice-man on the team and it isn’t Christian Redl, it’s an Australian, Marcus Fillinger who will be accompanied an Edox SHARKMAN II Ltd. Edition sibling, the N-Pole 42.195 LE named so after the distance (in km) of his upcoming North Pole Marathon.



The N-Pole 42.195 has been made in a Limited Edition with 300 pieces worldwide; it has a Swiss-made Edox 102 quartz movement at its heart and tough exterior, thanks to a 316L Stainless steel case and scratch-resistant ceramic diver’s bezel.



With its crystal clear, black-and-red-dial, the N-Pole 42.195 should allow Marcus to keep track of his progress at a glance.



The 45mm N-Pole 42.195 has a massive screw-down case-back and a water-resistant to 500 meters. The case-back has a map of the North Pole engraved on it.



The watch comes in a special presentation box. It will be on sale from May 2018.


Thoughts? It looks really, there’s a cool story but – I’ll never get excited about a quartz – how bout’ you?
