Since its launch in May 2007, Ebel’s dynamic Discovery line has sparked and held the attention of a youthful masculine audience in search of a distinctively designed and technically reliable watch in tune with their active lifestyle. For 2008, the Architects of Time introduce splashes of color and energy with three new models that certainly stand out from the crowd and are designed for men unafraid to do just the same!
hile exuding a conspicuous aura of colorful and eye-catching confidence, these overtly sporty models nonetheless clearly display the 1911 family likeness, proclaiming their sense of belonging to a proud lineage evinced through the taut lines of the hexagonal 43 mm case and its five visible screws, as well as the brand’s hallmark smooth integration of case and bracelet, and a set of remarkable finishing details.
Like the first watches in this ground-breaking new line, these up-to-the minute new models are all powered as ever by an extremely reliable high-performance COSC-certified self-winding chronograph movement. They are also endowed with an impressive range of refined and rugged features including screw-lock crowns; water resistance to 10 ATM; pushers protected by sporty notched-profile guards; a sapphire crystal with anti-glare treatment on both sides to enhance its clarity; and a SuperLumiNova coating on the distinctively shaped hour and minute hands as well as the 12 squares on the flange guaranteeing optimal readability in the dark.
The tachometric scale on the aluminum bezel, the ultra-readable date/day display, along with the hand-applied chronograph counters and hour-markers, all contribute to enhancing the overall impression of sporting sophistication accentuated by multiple layers and dynamic perspectives.
Marrying primary colors with the sturdy refinement of a steel bracelet, the colorful new ”red” and “blue” versions of the latest 1911 Discovery watches show a taste for a blend of distinction, discretion and vibrancy. The black dial is teamed with a red bezel and matching chronograph hands; while the silver-colored dial is framed by a blue bezel and matching chronograph hands. The immediately recognizable ultra-flexible Ebel bracelet is distinguished by its polished/brushed finish creating a well-balanced aesthetic appeal and ensures impeccable wearer comfort thanks to its extremely smooth fit.
Meanwhile, the liveliest, most fun-loving member of the family shows up in a daring bright orange color displayed on the aluminum bezel and reflected in the stitching on the resolutely sporty technofiber strap.
