used their Grand Ocean watch case as a start for an ultra thin timepiece. The result is an appropriately named "Grand Ocean Ultra Slim" timepiece that is just 6.2mm thick. Very thin! The secret is that it has a Swiss quartz movement rather than a mechanical one. While there are mechanical movements these thin, they aren't nearly as well-priced. I hear that this is also a ladies watch. It first looked like a men's watch. At 33mm wide, it is most certainly ladies sized, but doesn't it look like a men's piece? Maybe a bit dainty, but certainly masculine. The case is a mixture of black PVD and gold toned steel. The dial is very easy to read. I enjoy how Edox was able to give the watch a classic feel, though albeit in a modern Grand Ocean case. Price is $1,635.
