About EDOX Swiss Watches:
Like time itself, Swiss watch manufacturer EDOX never stands still too.

Pauline subsequently convinced him to start his own business in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. Over the decades, EDOX has earned a reputation as the «water champion» of the watch industry and has been a leading specialist in the manufacture of waterproofed and motor sports watches for decades. As one of the few remaining family-owned Swiss watch manufacturers, EDOX is proud of its heritage, but also focuses on innovation and creativity in its collections. Today, EDOX is known for its highly water-resistant timepieces, intricate hand-polished cases, and traditional hand-assembly. EDOX - A company that shapes time.
#77 Dominique AEGERTER:
"I am very pleased to welcome EDOX as a new partner in my racing family. Furthermore, I feel even more honoured to have gained a Swiss watch manufacturer not only as a sponsor, but also to be able to act as its brand ambassador. When this new partnership came about, like-minded people met. It was clear from the first conversation that the owner family are motorsport enthusiasts through and through."
"One project in this partnership also involves designing our own «Domi Special Edition». I will be actively involved in this and cannot wait to get started with the planning. EDOX chronographs are designed to be very elegant, stylish, and multifunctional. Our «Domi Special Edition» will not lack any of these features. But before we start, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone involved for creating this partnership and I also will try very hard to be a great brand ambassador for EDOX Chronographs. I would be very happy if this develops into a long-lasting and successful collaboration."
