Review: Edox – Hydro-SubWritten by Alvin Wong
For its 50th anniversary, Edox’s best-selling Hyrdo-Sub collection gets marched out in new finery as well as quartz versions.
The design is pretty much similar to the revamped version launched last year to celebrate Edox’s 130th anniversary. The wide cushion-shaped case and trademark bezel lock remains, but now comes in a variety of colours spanning blue to green to red. Just as attractive are the price tags: approximately S$2,400 for automatic models, and S$1,500 for quartz. Both look the same, but go for the automatic ones for greater gravitas.
Price: S$1,551.50 (incld GST)
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
