Edox has produced Watches Since 1884, leading-technology high-precision timepieces with passion, ingenuity and a meticulous attention to details. In 1883, Christian Rufli-Flury, an exceptionally gifted watchmaker, gave his wife, Eva-Maria, a pocket watch he designed for her 25th birthday. She was so impressed with her husband's talents and the beauty of the watch that she persuaded him to found his own watchmaking company. Christian Rufli-Flury launched his watchmaking enterprise in Biel-Bienne. He named the company "Edox", which means the hour in ancient Greek. The hourglass logo he put on his watches has adorned all Edox watches ever since. For a century and a quarter, the history of Edox has been studded with horologic successes and inventions of which many remain unrivaled to this day.
It all began as a love story between Christian ruefli-flury, the founder of Edox, and his beloved wife pauline, a story of endless love and intimate passion. Blessed by the love for his wife, Christian ruefli-flury decided to create a beautiful pocket watch and offered it to pauline. She convinced her husband to found his own watch Company, Edox, in 1883. The small stone of the crown represents eternity, a symbol of everlasting friendship and love.
