Ebel Brasilia Spéciale Haute Joaillerie Collection -“Limao”, “Amarelinha” and “Batida”

First launched in 2006 by Ebel’s glamorous and radiant muse, Brazilian super-model Gisele Bündchen, the Brasilia line is distinguished by its gentle warmth and subtly structured design.

The three models launched in 2007 , evocatively named “Limao”, “Amarelinha” and “Batida”, feature a Gent size case providing ample scope for displaying the fire of gems and the skill of the Ebel craftsmen. Each has its own distinct personality, yet they clearly share the same inspiration and the same vibrant energy. Reinforcing this sense of unity, the first 10 watches in each of the three limited editions of 25 are sold together in a dedicated and inseparable “trio”.

All of these spectacularly luminous creations convey an unmistakable Brazilian flavor through their vivid colors, bold designs… and names that also happen to be favorite cocktails. Moreover, each one of them expresses Ebel’s incredibly creative approach to gem-setting, backed by the impressive dexterity and precision that shine through both its jewelry and watchmaking expertise.Other shared features include the fact that all three are driven by a reliable self-winding mechanical movement, graced by facetted baton-shaped hands coated with white Super-Luminova to enhance readability as they sweep over their sparkling background, and are secured by a black fabric strap complete with white gold folding clasp.

Brasilia Limao
“Limao” means lime in Portuguese and this stunning model is every bit as sharply refreshing as its namesake. It is graced by a leafy motif composed of brilliant-cut blue sapphires and yellow citrines, set against a background of 177 brilliant-cut diamonds on the case, crown and dial. The motif is extended on either side by an embroidered pattern running over the strap, creating a magnificent sense of seamless continuity and natural charm.
