Edox LaPassion Open Heart Lady

Swiss watchmaker Edox celebrates world Swimming champion Mireia Belmonte’s achievements and her position as a role model for women of all walks of life with a stunning new LaPassion collection of timepieces. Like Mireia in her quest to be the very best in the pool, Edox thrives on passion to produce exceptional timepieces based on a grand watchmaking tradition but using the most modern of materials. The LaPassion Open Heart Lady is a striking example of Edox engineering and design, quality craftsmanship that has been centre stage for more than 130 years.
Housed in a steel case beats an Edox ‘engine’ based on the Sellita SW200 movement.The Open Heart dial with its horseshoe aperture design provides an intriguing glimpse of the movement inside. Water-resistant to 50m and at a dainty 33mm diameter, the LaPassion Open Heart Lady perfectly complements the spirit and ideals shown by Mireia, a true champion in and out of the water.
Spain’s Mireia Belmonte is a multiple world record holder whose passion for swimming has led to glory at the world championships, Olympic Games, and more. The Barcelona 24-year-old first made her mark in the pool aged 11 in the Spanish junior championships. She has gone on to become one of the world’s elite swimmers, winning multiple gold medals at FINA meetings.She won silver medals in the 200m butterfly and 800m events at the 2012 London Olympic Games and in December 2014 in Doha, Qatar, set world records in the short course 200m butterfly and 400m individual medley.
