This particular model is from the first generation, listed on the official EDOX website as a 1961 year model. While we believe it was made in the mid-to-end 60s, it is still the flagship model from EDOX’s advertising paper and a true gem for watch collectors.
The Delfin model line has been incredibly successful and is still being produced by EDOX today. This innovative and timeless watch has stood the test of time and continues to impress watch enthusiasts around the world.
The ETA 2783 movement, also known as the ‘Superautomatic’, is the heart of this incredible timepiece. Built over 50 years ago, this movement is a predecessor of today’s Number-One movement ETA 2824 and many of its parts are still interchangeable. The ETA 2783 is renowned for its durability and precision, and it’s a true testament to the exceptional engineering and craftsmanship that went into creating the EDOX Delfin watch.
The watch features a stunning tropical sunburst dial with applied indices and original tritium lume, as well as a red seconds hand and a matching date wheel. The text on the dial is in great condition, and the watch also boasts a durable and corrosion-resistant stainless steel case.
