The winner’s award: a limited edition of the AlpinerX
Presented in an elegant wooden box featuring an engraved “La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc 15th Edition” plaque, this limited-edition AlpinerX stands out with its exclusive combination of colours, evoking the spectacular views of the icy massifs.
Athletic in its 45 mm diameter, the blue fiber glass case (for lightweight comfort), with its engraved steel case back, reveals a classic analogue dial, encircled by a blue 360° rotating compass bezel. Protected by a sapphire crystal, the grey face is paired with impressive luminescent white indexes. While indicating the hours and minutes, the turquoise hands (also luminescent) can spread apart onto the upper portion of the dial, if necessary, to reveal the information that appears when the digital screen is activated.
Water resistant to 100 metres and shock resistant, this sporty watchmaking masterpiece is finished with a dark blue rubber strap, for the perfect consummation of its adventurous spirit. Snow-loving thrill seekers will adore it…
About La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc
La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc is the story of a dream. The dream of a great adventure that would cross our Alpine massifs, whereas the norm for this sport for decades had been to run across icy expanses with little topographical relief. Ever since its first edition in 2005, La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc has been Europe’s top annual sled dog event. It is the most challenging stage race in an alpine milieu, unique in the world.
