Edox X-Treme Pilot III – Click above for high-res image

Whereas in circuit racing, drivers are competing against each other wheel-to-wheel, in rallying it's all a race against the clock, and the driver with the fastest time wins. So it follows naturally that rally drivers need the right tool for the job, and this is it: the Edox X-Treme Pilot III.

Crafted by the official timekeeper of the World Rally Championship specifically for WRC drivers, the X-Treme Pilot III features such unique touches as oversize push-buttons that are easy to actuate even with gloves on and a tachometer scale around the dial. It's housed in a lightweight titanium case with a wheel motif embossed on the case-back, and affixed to the paddock's most talented wrists by a rubber strap with rally-spec tire tread pattern.

The Edox X-Treme Pilot III will go on sale in June with an €1,890 (~$2,750) MSRP in a limited edition of 1000 examples.

      Er, it's a tachymeter, not a tachometer. It measures distance, not RPM.

        Not quite right either. A tachymeter gives you direct reading of your average speed over a fixed unit distance. So if the second hand swept from 12 to 6 o'clock while travelling exactly 1 km, your average speed can be read directly as 120 kph. All real rally timers I've seen have huge displays and mount to a clipboard or the dash. This watch has the functions but not the readability required to do the job. It's really just jewelry, nothing wrong with that, if that's what works for you.

      As if a driver, who needs a co-driver because he can't afford to take his eyes off the road for a split second, is going to look at his wrist watch during a race.

      Edox makes nice watches, wish I could justify the money buying one.

      This watch is for co-drivers, not rally drivers.
