EBEL

EBEL was founded by husband and wife Eugene Blum and Alice Levy, in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1911. Since its inception, the Swiss watch brand has remained true to their core values, manufacturing fine watches that marry beauty and function. Renowned for its iconic bracelet design with signature wave-shaped links, EBEL continues to create timepieces that embody luxury and contemporary elegance with subtle, yet exquisite detail.

Since 1911, EBEL has dedicated their talents, passion and creativity to designing and crafting distinctive watches that exercise an enduring fascination.

Undeniably, watch-making has tended to be a male dominated area – but not so at Ebel, which was built on the twin pillars of masculine and feminine values and qualities. The founding members, who established this great watchmaking brand on July 15, 1911, were a man and a woman, partners in life and in business. Settled in La Chaux-de-Fonds, one of the major centers of Swiss watch-making, Eugène Blum and Alice Lévy decided to seal their destinies in an entirely novel way.

The name of the watchmaking firm they established symbolized its unique origins in the fusion of two outstanding personalities: EBEL – an acronym of the initials “Eugène Blum Et Lévy”. The couple’s complementary talents and interests were to shape the corporate spirit. Eugène dealt with the technical side of brand development, emphasizing precision, expertise and quality while Alice focused on the aesthetic aspects of Ebel watches, insisting on elegance and sensuality of design. Their shared concern and flair for details led them to lavish meticulously skilled care on their entire product range, from exquisitely feminine jewelry models and Haute Joaillerie creations, to refined men’s timepieces that were making the epochal transition from the pocket-watch to elegant wristwatches.

The dual inspiration of Alice and Eugène Blum gave Ebel unrivalled dynamism and an exceptional ability to create refined and reliable watches, which inevitably drew attention and honors. The founders’ son, Charles Blum, worked to hone the brand’s competitive edge while creating a production facility capable of selling its movements to other internationally famous brands. Uncompromising quality was already seen as the key to success within a demanding profession, and Ebel illustrated its dedication to this fundamental value in 1935 by becoming the first Swiss watch company to use the Western Electric System.

This invention, a precursor of the Vibrograph, was the first device capable of accurately measuring and testing rating precision. As part of the same drive for perfection, admirably promoted by the highly talented watchmaker Marcel Reuche, Ebel encouraged the creation of the “Contrôle Technique des Montres” (CTM) in 1957, involving stringent customs controls that guaranteed Swiss watchmaking precision throughout the world. The CTM also made a significant contribution to enhancing the quality control criteria of the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), the official body conferring the certification that continues today to represent a prestigious assurance of accuracy and reliability.

The consistent excellence and inventive design cultivated by Ebel deserved to resonate far beyond the borders of Switzerland and Europe. During World War II, Ebel became the main supplier of watches to the British Army, which provided eloquent testimony to the strength of the reputation it was so patiently and carefully establishing. Ebel definitely took the path of international business when Pierre-Alain Blum, called back from his career in the United States by his father Charles Blum, was at the head of the company. His strong personality, pioneering spirit and visionary impetus were to raise Ebel to new heights within the international luxury world, helping the brand to achieve spectacular development.

In step with this growing global awareness, Ebel’s distribution network was broadened accordingly to encompass an ever larger number of points of sale representing the brand around the world. Gaining a foothold and increasingly well established on all five continents, the brand became a symbol of aspiration for countless people who dreamed of being gifted an Ebel watch.

Convinced of the powerful impact of sports on brand image, EBEL invested considerably during the 1980s and 1990s in raising global awareness of the brand through sponsoring prestigious events such as the Monte Carlo Tennis Open, the Davis Cup tennis championship and the Swiss Open European Masters golf championship. They also enlisted the endorsement of well known brand ambassadors from the worlds of sport (Yannick Noah, Stefan Edberg and Colin Montgomerie) and entertainment (including Madonna and Dennis Hopper). Demonstrating a parallel commitment to the arts, represented by such talented figures as Barbara Hendricks, Ebel also established a distinguished presence in cultural circles.

Pierre-Alain Blum acted forcefully on his conviction that Ebel must offer contemporary watches with timeless charisma. He introduced the Sport Classic collection in 1977 with its inimitable Wave bracelet and fully integrated case, a “revolutionary” design with which Ebel would become definitively associated. This iconic collection was to achieve unprecedented public success and to generate a lasting fascination for two-tone steel and gold watches. Subsequent major launches of still existing collections were to follow, including Beluga and 1911 Chronograph.

After a decade of quartz supremacy, Ebel’s president became convinced that mechanical watches would have a new key role to play in the watch-making universe. Therefore, EBEL started to use mechanical movements in their watches and to develop their own calibers, such as Caliber 137 launched for the very first time in 1995 and housed within the 1911 collection. Thanks to this potent combination of a distinctive approach to product design and the quest for technological mastery, Ebel gained international recognition in the watch-making field.

In 2004, EBEL was acquired by Movado Group, a Swiss watchmaking conglomerate that designs, manufactures, and distributes Movado, EBEL, Concord, Coach, HUGO BOSS, Lacoste, Juicy Couture, Tommy Hilfiger, and Scuderia Ferrari brand watches worldwide.

EBEL celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011. Still, the essential brand values remain unchanged: classic elegance, sculptural lines, smoothly sensual shapes, traditional fine craftsmanship and undeniable watchmaking expertise have been both faithfully preserved and effectively reinterpreted. The signature designs on which the company founded their success have been rejuvenated, alongside the extension of the range through exciting new models that for man unmistakably contemporary and innovative collection. Ebel has also developed four new proprietary movements within its workshops, thereby reviving and reinforcing its historically proven competence in the field of mechanical horology.

Moreover, to express its multi-faceted appeal and convey its core values, Ebel has also built up a strong communication platform entirely in harmony with the DNA of the brand. To achieve this, it has opted to work with world-renowned personalities representing the epitome of elegance and sophistication, such as super model Gisele Bündchen.

Further, broadening its appeal to encompass the most truly global sport of all and its most prestigious exponents, Ebel has become one of the first luxury watch brands to partner with top-class football clubs such as Arsenal and FC Bayern Munich, with which it shares a number of important values including respect for a noble heritage and dedication to perfecting their craft.

Ebel’s success is built upon the perfect fusion of technical excellence and passion for aesthetically daring and timeless, distinctive design. At the very core of the design philosophy lies the commitment to distinctiveness that puts Ebel watches in a league of their own. Ebel’s often groundbreaking models have consistently explored uncharted territory and instigated new trends. Striking examples that come to mind include the monohull hexagonal case, visible functional screws, the inimitable wave bracelet and other design features that have now become an integral part of the watch-making scene. The unmistakable character of a watch by EBEL is ensured by a unique combination of subtle features. Gentle, sensual curves confer a voluptuous charm on the sleek, flowing lines entirely free of any sharp edges.

Governed by long-established and uncompromising quality standards, each step in the process of creating an Ebel watch involves the pooling of multiple talents and considerable knowhow. Patiently cultivated and handed down through generations, these invaluable “natural” resources are as ever infused with a decidedly contemporary and inventive approach. The elegance of fully integrated cases and bracelets complements the emblematic shapes and motifs, enhanced by authentic and refined styling. The sheer sophistication of these innovative yet timeless designs is further highlighted by the obvious care lavished on even the smallest details, apparent in a wealth of delicate finishing touches and sensations. Not least of these is the caress of an Ebel watch on the wrist, providing the wearer with a level of comfort that has to be experienced to be believed.

Jewelry Watches: On gem-set models, Ebel silky-soft feel is enhanced by the meticulous attention devoted to diamond-setting, which guarantees the smoothness of surfaces thus adorned with precious stones. Much like a beautiful architectural accomplishment, a timepiece carrying the inimitable Ebel signature radiates a sense of warmth and familiarity, while simultaneously arousing admiration through its daringly novel aspects. From its earliest days, Ebel has always displayed exceptional sensitivity and flair in the creation of jewelry-watches, nurtured by co-founder Alice Lévy, a passionate gem-lover, and duly recognized by awards honoring the House in 1914 for its ring watches, and in 1925 for its stunning Haute Joaillerie models.

In-house Mechanical movements: Reaffirming the historical legitimacy of brand within the demanding field of mechanical watches, Ebel has committed itself to pursuing and intensifying the development of its in-house movements. In doing so, it is building on a wealth of horological experience and know-how accumulated over almost a century and admirably exemplified in its famous automatic chronograph Caliber 137, first introduced in 1995 after five years of research and development. The latter has so far given rise to four automatic movements, Caliber 139 (chronograph), Caliber 240 (GMT), Caliber 288 (Perpetual Calendar) and Caliber 245 (chronograph) all of them offer a power reserve of at least 48 hours and are chronometer-certified, like the original, by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) – the ultimate guarantee of their excellent precision.

EBEL Sport Classic

To be unveiled at Baselworld 2017, the new Sport Classic collection pays tribute to EBEL’s formidable craftsmanship during the 1970s and 1980s. Boasting a sport chic design, the original EBEL Sport Classic was an icon in the brand’s classic timepiece collections during those times. This is a watch whose beauty flows from its simplicity, and which has become a design signature throughout the entire EBEL collection. It represents the focal point of the brand’s repositioning, bringing a historic design classic firmly into the twenty-first century.

The EBEL Sport Classic features a timeless design that embodies the very soul of style, with elegantly thin geometric features crafted in the pursuit of a perfect, flawless shape. The tapered links and flat surface of the trademark wave bracelet have been retained as a salute to the original Sport Classic model and its signature flexibility, while the new wave shape is more elegantly pronounced. Sleek and thin, this new bracelet is perfectly integrated into the watch’s curved case-back, providing inimitable comfort. An exclusive new locking jewelry clasp secures it to the wrist.

Crafted of stainless steel and offered in three sizes – 24 mm (Mini), 29 mm (Lady), and 40 mm (Gent) – the EBEL Sport Classic case features a distinctive hexagonal shape and flat, antireflective sapphire crystal. The polished chamfer between the top and side of the case is a further allusion to the design of the original model. The yellow gold bezel is held in place with five eye-catching and functional 18 ct gold screws that have flat, black polished heads and chamfered rims and slots – a reference to high-end watchmaking. The hexagonal yellow gold crown features an embossed kissing “E” logo.

The new font used for the painted black Roman numerals gives the overall design a more contemporary look and provides a stylish contrast to the effortlessly elegant white dial, lending these EBEL Sport Classic models a sense of refined understatement.

The glamorous marriage of technical mastery and well-proportioned aesthetics imbues this timepiece with a stylish yet sporty look that is equally fitting for active and more refined moments.

EBEL Wave Grande Duo Set

Swiss watch brand EBEL presents two diamond set timepieces as a tribute to the breath taking beauty of winter season. Both EBEL Wave Grande watches perfectly encapsulate the duality of the winter season. The diametrically opposed elements, the light and dark, the cold and warmth, blended by nature, create harmonious partnerships. These watches of absolute contrast are also perfect partners.

One calm, one lively, both boldly feminine with oversized 35mm stainless steel cases, each housing a fine Quartz Ronda 773 movement, and set with a glittering array of 72 diamonds. Each dial is further complemented by the applied EBEL symbol at 12 o’clock, and 8 more diamonds.

These precious stones perfectly reflect the twinkling snow and frost. The stainless steel classic signature wave bracelets are interspersed with red gold PVD treatment. But the clearest contrast is in the color of the dials, one pure galvanic silver, suggesting the bright pure elements of snow, the other a cool galvanic grey, evoking low silvery clouds in the sky, both capturing the essence of winter. The warmth of the red gold in the bracelet cleverly and sympathetically provides a visual counterpoint to the cool dial.

Enhanced by a silver-toned shade and Roman numerals, the dial radiates an aura of elegant simplicity. EBEL’s cherished “double E” is subtly applied at 3 o’clock, while the date appears at 6 o’clock. With its comfortable 36.5 mm diameter, the Beluga Grande Sertie asserts its feminine nature by magnifying the curves of this legendary model. 36 diamonds set on the bezel follow the voluptuous rounded shape of the case.

EBEL Pink Gold Classic Hexagon: Day, Retrograde Date and Power Reserve Model

Launched in 2009, the Pink Gold Classic Hexagon features an inimitably smooth and generous 45.4 mm-diameter hexagonal mono-hull case, with its five distinctive screws and fully integrated crown.  The gentle yet refined glow of pink gold subtly alternates between brushed and polished surfaces.

This noble warm shade of the precious metal is particularly suited to the inimitable face of this day, retrograde date and power reserve model, featuring three eminently useful and highly readable functions respectively arranged at 3, 9 and 6 o’clock.

The sophisticated “Clous de Paris” patterned effect on two of the counters, along with the beveled, hand-applied hour-markers, admirably accentuate the architectural beauty and depth of this blend of refined elegance and tasteful aesthetic harmony.

Ebel Classic Lady Automatic Steel & Red Gold 5N

The latest feminine version of Ebel’s iconic Classic line blends the warmth of red gold with the mechanical sophistication of an automatic movement. Designed by the Architects of Time who adopted for the occasion a sculptor’s touch with matter, the Ebel Classic has retained all its distinctive characteristics such as the monohull case conception and its satin-smooth pebble-like touch free of any sharp edges.

The dainty 27.30 mm case in brushed stainless steel and red gold, distinguished by sensual curves and a subtly geometrical motif, frames a matt white or white mother-of-pearl dial surrounded by a red gold bezel and teamed with the iconic two-tone wave bracelet that gleams more brightly than ever in this version.

Powered by a reliable automatic movement, it offers eloquent proof that women also deserve to enjoy the best of mechanical watchmaking.

Ebel 1911 TEKTON AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH

The 1911 trilogy is now complete with the introduction of the new 1911 TEKTON: the most daring, conceptual and cutting-edge men’s watch in the entire Ebel collection – and above all the most engineered. All 1911 TEKTON models are powered exclusively by COSC-certified Ebel proprietary movements.

Named after the Greek root of the word architect – architekton, which literally means chief (archi) of construction (tekton) – this iconic new 1911 TEKTON line fully lives up to its noble inspiration. As the most meticulously constructed piece within the entire Ebel collection, it embodies the quintessence of the horological expertise, sophisticated design and finishing details cultivated by the Architects of Time.

1911 TEKTON AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH 
Powered by Ebel CALIBER 137
The 1911 Tekton Caliber 137 is available in two versions combining steel and black rubber: one with a silver-colored dial and technofiber strap – an ultra-rugged material used in high-tech sports apparel; and the other, fitted with a black dial and matching black profiled rubber strap, exuding an even more masculine and assertive appeal. Representing the very essence of the range and depth of brand know-how, the Ebel Caliber 137 called for five years of development before it emerged from the company workshops in 1995.

This sophisticated and exclusive automatic chronograph movement is based on a fascinating principle: instead of “bolting” a chronograph movement onto an automatic movement, its 322 components are integrated in parallel. This construction results in a slender movement able to power the hour and minute hands, chronograph seconds, date display, as well as 60- second, 30-minute and 12-hour counters.

Powered by Ebel CALIBER 139
The distinctive and elegant aesthetic of this model features a galvanic black skeleton dial enhanced by a slender circular motif. This three-dimensional, split-level construction reveals a finely circular-grained bridge and several mechanisms that are rarely visible – including the three-arm red chronograph minute hand and the three-arm black seconds hand at 9 o’clock. The Caliber 139 is the brand’s 2nd proprietary caliber, created and launched by Ebel in 2005.

Starting from the fact that regular counters on automatic chronographs were generally too small to ensure fast and accurate legibility of the elapsed time, Ebel watchmakers worked on a new architecture of the chronograph display functions on the basis of the highly reliable Ebel Caliber 137. The result is a 120° register displaying the chronograph minute hand in an optimally readable manner compared with regular chronograph sub-dials. Consistent with the minute display, the chronograph hour display was also revised: the hand was replaced with a disc graduated from 1 to 12 that turns beneath the dial and precisely indicates the hour in progress through an aperture.

Ebel Classic Hexagon Collection – Classic Hexagon 45.4mm, Classic Hexagon 45.4mm GMT Pink Gold and Classic Hexagon 41mm Large Date and Power Reserve

The Classic Hexagon line is a perfect example of drawing the best from an existing model, while successfully endowing it with new and distinctive characteristics. From its illustrious forerunner, the Ebel Classic, it has inherited first and foremost the famous hexagonal monohull case with its sculptural, pebble-smooth curves lovingly satin-brushed by hand.

This unique and almost organic exterior emphasizes the exclusive and prestigious character of these watches, delicately accentuated by the other distinctive family traits: five screws and a crown perfectly integrated within the case. These fundamentals were subtly yet forcefully enhanced by several novel features, starting with the generous 45.4 mm case diameter and 37 mm dial opening, creating an unmistakable impression of spacious harmony, and the new sloping lugs ensuring an ideal fit for even the daintiest wrists.

Protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, the pure, uncluttered dial design features beveled, hand-applied hour-markers and counters graced with an exquisite “Clous de Paris” guilloché motif. These subtle details further highlight the decided emphasis on geometrical shapes and the play on perspectives that translate an exceptional encounter between elegant chic and modern sophistication.

All watches in this collection are fitted with finely crafted alligator leather straps, setting the finishing touch to timepieces that are synonymous with refinement for men eager to convey their inherent sense of good taste. In extending the Classic Hexagon collection, Ebel has naturally focused on reinforcing its slender elegance and harmonious purity. The new 2008 additions to the Hexagon family are:

Ebel Classic Hexagon 45.4 mm
Day, Retrograde Date and Power Reserve models
Vividly expressing the refined sophistication of the Classic Hexagon, two steel models on a brown or black leather strap feature gracefully elegant day of the week, retrograde date and power-reserve indications lending a distinctive and refined presence to these new dial variations. One features a black dial with a discreet touch of red, along with rhodium-plated appliques and hour-markers; while the other opts for a silver-colored dial with slender pink gold-plated hour-markers. Both are adorned with the refined “Clous de Paris” guilloché motif on all three counters.

Ebel Classic Hexagon 45.4 mm GMT Pink Gold
This apparently simple model dedicated to keen travelers is distinguished by the refined and pure layout of its black dial with pink gold-plated appliques: the dual time-zone counter at 6 o’clock is lined up with the large date and the main hands, while creating a striking contrast with the main dial by adopting the exact opposite color code (gold-plated appliques and black hour-markers). In a subtle manner typical of Ebel’s tireless pursuit of excellence, this pleasing visual effect also naturally facilitates readability. The GMT variation is also available in two steel versions.

Ebel Classic Hexagon 41 mm Large Date and Power Reserve
This medium-sized model is specifically designed for men looking for a less ‘expansive’ model, as well as for women also drawn to the pure lines of the Hexagon and needing a model to fit their wrist. Down-sizing it while detracting nothing from its distinctive identity was a daunting challenge that was successfully accomplished by paring the dial down to essentials with the large date and power-reserve displays. The latter is underscored by a fine ornamental fillet and a discreet “Clous de Paris” motif, admirably embodying the flair for detail and refined sophistication representing the unmistakable signature of the Architects of Time.

Pervaded by an urban spirit and dedicated to all those with a penchant for design, art and contemporary architecture, the latest additions to the Classic Hexagon collection bear a distinctive family likeness while showing their own individual character traits liable to appeal to a broad range of tastes and preferences.

Ebel Beluga Caviar

In 2008, Ebel’s iconic Beluga line has been reinterpreted in a delightfully modern and dynamic manner that accentuates the rounded curves of its case, further enhanced by the subtle technique of progressive gem-setting. As the talking-piece of this new Beluga collection, Beluga Caviar is issued in a limited edition of 10 and brings a fascinating sense of aquatic life, relish and mystery to the wrist.

First brought to European by 14th century Venetian trading ships in the 14th century and often referred to as “black pearls”, caviar has come to epitomize luxury and exclusivity. The prestigious Beluga caviar variety, consisting of the largest eggs, has a rich, creamy flavor and a delicate texture, but is prized above all for its sheer rarity.

The opulent, gently curving 38mm case in 18K-750 white gold encircles an amazingly expressive “caviar-paved” dial. Glareproofed on both sides, the sapphire crystal lends even greater depth to this unique watch face, graced only by slender diamond-polished “leaf” hands and concentric circles composed of 86 unequivocally evocative onyx half spheres.

This captivating picture is exquisitely framed by 162 brilliant-cut diamonds and 16 brilliant-cut black diamonds, totaling 3.84 carats. Reflecting the pearl-like or beaded motif and the same maritime inspiration, stingray was a natural choice for the finely flowing leather strap, secured with a matching white gold buckle.

This voluptuous blend of noble and precious materials has given rise to a refined and unmistakably original Haute Joaillerie creation. Fully living up to its proud name and legacy, the Beluga Caviar is an irresistible gourmet treat for those who appreciate the finer things that time brings. It will doubtless also find a perfect place on the graceful wrist of the stunning Ebel muse, Gisele Bündchen.

Ebel Brasilia

Famed for its talent for sensing the mood of the moment and also for its ability to meet women’s multiple expectations, Ebel presents its new and original Fashion line in a choice of black or white variations.

Timelessly elegant and yet tinged with a hint of provocative mischief, the generously sized cases of these Fashion Line watches are set with 106 brilliant-cut diamonds, a classic choice offset by a clever mix of contemporary materials: high-tech rubber strap featuring a modern and original design inspired by the links of the Brasilia metal bracelets, ceramic inserts on both side of the case and ceramic cabochon on the crown.

In the black version the galvanic treatment imparts a special radiance to the color shade and thus to the dial itself. Meanwhile, the shimmering, pearly white dial carries tiny grains that lend unmistakable character while accentuating its volume and luminosity.

Ebel 1911 TEKTON AFC Ajax Limited Edition

Unveiled at the Millionaire Fair Amsterdam in 2008, the 1911 TEKTON “AFC Ajax” is a symbol of partnership between the Swiss Luxury watch brand EBEL and the traditional football-club AFC Ajax. This was the very first time the 1911 TEKTON “AFC Ajax” , a spectacular timepiece has shown to the public.

Exclusively introduced at the Millionaire Fair Amsterdam, before the official launch in spring 2009, the first 15 watches of the only 150 pieces worldwide limited chronograph are offered for sale. Gassan Diamonds is the first retailer in Holland to distribute this special edition. The premiere of the 1911 TEKTON „AFC Ajax“ at the Millionaire Fair Amsterdam marks the beginning of the partnership between EBEL and the AFC Ajax as “Official Timing Partner”.

The new model is issued in a limited edition within the “1911 TEKTON” and was developed in close cooperation with representatives from AFC Ajax and Gassan Diamonds President Benno Leeser. The 1911 TEKTON “AFC Ajax” promises sporty elegance. The timepiece includes actively the club-colors red and white in its design: one will not only find the colors of Ajax within the red flange of the white dial but also on the red chronograph seconds and minute pointer. Framed between two small white stripes the index at 12 o’clock shows a parallel with the typical Ajax-jersey.

EBEL has powerfully expressed its deep and lasting commitment to football by developing a proprietary movement specifically designed for this sport, since it keeps effective track of football match time. This exclusive chronograph movement was developed by EBEL watchmakers and is assembled and tested in-house in its La Chaux-de-Fonds workshops.

Designed to measure match half times and code-named “245” standing for 2 times 45 minutes, it even indicates extra time where required. The oversized 45 minute counter at 12 o’clock on the watch dials serves to read off elapsed time, while the disk at 6 o’clock indicates the hours in periods of 45 minutes. Doubtless the most distinctive feature of all is the signature football-shaped oscillating weight, personalized with the club logo of AFC Ajax and numbered according to the limited edition.

Ebel BELUGA, Edition 2008

When first presented in 1985 and for the next thirteen years, the exclusively feminine Beluga® was crafted from gold and gold alone, giving women a definite sense of belonging to a very special circle of initiates. 1998 witnessed the introduction of a steel version, either all-polished or set with diamonds, thereby rendering the Beluga accessible to a broader audience. Now in 2008, loyal to the fundamental Beluga values, Ebel has redesigned its legendary jewelry watch in a diamond-set-only interpretation that revives the “exclusive club” spirit so intimately entwined with the history of the line.

The new Beluga sparkles and shines with a full-set case and full-polished bracelet in a choice of gold or steel, modern and yet more distinctively upscale than ever. Endowed with an immediately recognizable and yet clearly updated design, these stunning timepieces freely interpret the essence of a timeless line while proudly affirming a status that goes well beyond that of watches to become jewelry creations in their own right.

The first thing that strikes the attentive observer when picking up the new Beluga is that its silky-smooth feel is as sensually pleasing as ever. And this despite the fact that the Architects of Time have profoundly redesigned the Beluga, imbuing this decidedly contemporary interpretation with a fresh and unequivocally youthful appeal. Ebel has adopted a distinctly more sculptural and decidedly modern approach based on multiple levels to generate an impression of depth and relief.

The triple-row bracelet now features more expressive central links that enhance the visual fascination and accentuate the contrast with the horizontal elements on either side, while the caseband is beveled to create a tauter, more generous curve. Instead of applied round dots and numerals, square diamond hour-markers light up the dial to produce a striking effect.

Redesigning Beluga, the Architects of Time have lent a distinctive signature touch by creating a “progressive” gem-setting suffused with a personality all its own. Vividly conveying Ebel’s consistent concern for details and adding to the complexity of the refined craftsmanship involved, this skillfully graded gem-setting is performed with several sizes of diamonds that gently yet forcefully accentuate the curvaceous feminine outlines. Such a sophisticated approach calls for special preparation and is a complex task involving particularly precise and meticulous craftsmanship. Meanwhile, the integrated crown has been retained, ensuring the smooth touch and purity of line that are an integral part of the Beluga charm.

The new Beluga comes in a variety of shades from the shimmering iridescence of pink or white mother-of-pearl, to silver-colored or black enhanced by a subtle striped pattern. Fully in touch with the needs of today’s urban, independent and active woman, the Architects of Time have also now chosen to guarantee readability by protecting the dial of the new Beluga with a crystal that is glare-resistant on both sides.

The Beluga timeline

  • 1985 – Launch of Beluga, exclusively in gold all-polished or diamond-set versions
  • 1998 – Launch of Beluga in steel all-polished or diamond-set versions
  • 2008 – Launch of the new Beluga in steel or in gold, exclusively diamond-set, in April 2008 with a new ad campaign featuring the glamorous face of Ebel, Gisele.

EBEL 1911 BTR Perpetual Calendar Chronograph in Pink Gold

For lovers of contemporary architecture and devotees of mechanical watchmaking – including many who are proud to be both – Ebel introduces a stunningly inspired pink gold version of its 1911 BTR Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, issued in an exclusive limited edition of 200.

This spectacular face of this new landmark creation is strongly reminiscent of contemporary architectural achievements such as modern art museums with their large bay windows amid a metal frame creating an alternating pattern of glass and steel. The play on perspective as well as the clever lighting and volume effects all vividly evoke a contemporary work of architecture, while the elegantly understated and subtly contrasting choice of colors inexorably draws the gaze to the intricate workings of the watch mechanism below. The ultimate goal of such sophisticated structures being to highlight the objet d’art inside, it comes as no surprise to learn that the movement inside the alternating slate grey and black openworked dial is fully worthy of such a spectacular stage-setting.

Clearly the most elaborate and prestigious of all Ebel proprietary movements, the Caliber 288 boats no less than 436 parts and a double COSC certification conferred before and after assembly of the perpetual calendar module. Caliber 288 steadily and reliably counts off the day of the week, the date, the month, the years, and the ever-poetic phases of the moon appearing on an exceptionally accurate astronomical display. This exceptional movement can also be admired through the transparent sapphire crystal case-back, providing an excellent view of the Architects of Time “compass” oscillating weight, a signature of Ebel proprietary calibers.

Despite providing such a vast amount of information, this quintessentially architectural timepiece is exceptionally readable thanks to its four sapphire crystal counters sporting a metallic matt appearance that undeniably enhances their legibility. 12 white Superluminova hour-markers stand out clearly against the dial rim, while the gold-plated diamond-polished skeleton hour and minute hands accentuate the sense of transparency prevailing throughout.

This glowing tribute to contemporary architecture exudes all the decidedly masculine and characteristic appeal of the 1911 BTR line launched in 2006. The dynamic and sophisticated edge to the iconic hexagonal 1911 case is eloquently conveyed through the generous dimensions of the 44.5 mm case framing a 32 mm dial opening, as well as the broader and more expressive bezel secured by 5 powerful screws. Fitted with an alligator leather strap featuring hand-sewn overstitching, this impressive stylistic exercise captures the essence of modern architecture by enshrining the infinitely large within the diminutive boundaries of a watch.

Ebel 1911 Discovery Edition 2008

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.

Dazzling, fun-loving and obviously at home in the spotlight, the Haute Joaillerie Caipirinha model is a vivid embodiment of the spirit of the Brasilia line first launched by Ebel in 2006. Bubbling over with a contagious joie de vivre, it evokes the wide-open spaces, stunning natural beauties and cosmopolitan charms of the land that inspired it, along with a colourful and unmistakably celebratory approach to life in general.

The resolutely upbeat personality of this model is enhanced by bright touches of colour created by the sheer diversity and eye-catching arrangement of the gemstones adorning its 18K-750 polished white-gold case and pave dial.

Ebel 1911 Discovery Collection

Dynamic contemporary men in touch with their times naturally look for a quality watch suited to daily wear in their busy lives, easy to wear and yet well-crafted and endowed with a distinctive design. With just such individuals in mind, in 2007 Ebel proudly introduced its evocatively named 1911 Discovery.

First launched in 1986 to mark the 75th anniversary of the company founding date, the recently updated and enriched 1911 line signals Ebel’s grand comeback to the field of masculine watches. It now represents the ultimate men’s line specially redesigned and revamped to match contemporary tastes. The new 1911 Discovery is the “younger brother” of the prestigious 1911 BTR line exclusively powered by proprietary Ebel movements and launched in 2006. Slightly smaller, more overtly sporty and resolutely youthful by nature, it is powered by an extremely reliable COSC-certified self-winding ETA movement, thus making it more accessible to young men with a taste for fine watchmaking.

This vigorous model clearly displays the signature features of the 1911 line. These include its hexagonal case with five visible screws, through to the immediately recognizable ultra-flexible Ebel bracelet, polished/brushed finishing and impeccable wearer comfort – a pleasant sensation further enhanced by the perfect integration of the case and bracelet ensuring a smoother fit on the wrist and a well-balanced aesthetic appeal.

The go-getter attitude Water-resistant to 10 ATM, the 43 mm case houses an automatic chronograph movement powering the hour and minute hands, three hand-applied chronograph counters and ultra-readable date/day displays. Protected by a sapphire crystal with antiglare treatment on both sides that further enhances its sharp legibility, the dial exudes a decidedly sporty look with its eye-catching counter backgrounds, color-coded chronograph hands, sophisticated hand-applied hour-markers and aluminum tachometric scale on the surrounding bezel.

This dynamic aura is further reinforced by the screw-lock crown, together with the pushers with their sporty notched-profile guards, and by the Super-LumiNova coating on the distinctively shaped hour and minute hands as well as the 12 squares on the flange, applied to ensure optimal visibility in the dark. So as to cater to a wide range of personal tastes, the new 1911 Discovery line encompasses five models: four in steel with a rubber or calfskin strap or a bracelet, and one in gold and steel on a bracelet only, while the elegant dials come in a choice of black with black counters or silver with slate grey counter rims.

Ebel Classic Hexagon Collection – GMT & Regulator Models

In 1977, Ebel created the Sport Classic, a watch destined to become the absolute brand icon, unequivocally establishing the Ebel identity through specific design codes and embodying an architectural vision expressed through matter. The hexagonal monohull case sculpted in steel like a smoothly polished pebble, the five visible screws and the flowing bracelet were conceived and shaped to form a seamlessly integrated whole.

This exquisitely timeless creation was to become recognized as a universal brand signature, to the point where it was naturally renamed the Ebel Classic. 30 years on, nurtured by this proud heritage, Ebel introduces the Classic Hexagon, a resolutely contemporary collection that raises the bar even higher through its modern reinterpretation of these rigorously pure lines and ageless beauty.

As one has come to expect from the Architects of Time, every last detail of Hexagon has been meticulously conceived to ensure ideally proportioned lines and volumes. The visionary “Classic” design is perpetuated in the hexagonal monohull case, of which the most obviously new characteristic is undoubtedly its striking size: a 45.5 mm diameter and a maximum possible 37 mm dial opening that occupies almost the entire case and creates a sense of spacious harmony and extreme elegance.

More strongly curved than ever, the sloping lugs ensure an optimal fit on all wrist sizes, while the crown is perfectly integrated to sit flush with the case. Pared-down to the essential expression of watchmaking purity and sophistication, reinforced by the sapphire crystal with antireflective treatment on both sides, the finely structured dials exude a distinctly resolutely modern aura with their beveled applied hour-markers and long slender hands, as well as the hand-applied Ebel logo and guilloché motif inside the subdials.

Completing the picture, the finely grained hand-sewn calfskin strap exemplifies Ebel’s consistent concern with fine materials and superlative fine craftsmanship revealed through a wealth of subtle finishing details. The two initial models in the new Ebel Classic Hexagon collection are driven by automatic movements, each with its own complication – Regulator and GMT respectively.

Hexagon GMT
In today’s global village, people seem to hop continents and juggle time zones with the greatest of ease. Many of them have found a GMT watch to be a perfect companion in helping them keep track of the time around the clock and around the world. Naturally attuned to this open-minded view of the world and consistently cultivating an appreciation of cultural differences, Ebel offers globetrotters an Ebel Classic Hexagon equipped with a GMT movement complete with a large date display.

Doubtless the most unusual feature of this model is the hand-applied subdial at 6 o’clock, lending an irresistible appeal to this decidedly contemporary timepiece. Meanwhile, the harmonious match between the black strap and the black dial give this watch great depth as well as an elegant chic that makes it equally at home in both formal and casual situations.

Hexagon Regulator
Ebel has always exhibited a deep-felt attachment to the rich history of watchmaking that continues to inspire the contemporary developments of the Architects of Time. The regulator movement is an integral part of this horological heritage, since it stems from the “master clocks” formerly used by watchmakers in their workshops to time the watches they were working on. Regulator clocks were distinguished by the separation of the three conventional units of time, effectively enabling fast, reliable and accurate reading.

On the Ebel Classic Hexagon Regulator watch, the separate dials displaying the hour, minute and seconds functions give this watch an extremely modern and fascinatingly geometrical design, effectively highlighted by the broad dial opening and reinforced by the hexagonal case. The subtle shades are also cleverly matched to achieve fascinating visual harmony for this model in which classic traditions meet contemporary architecture.

Ebel Gem-set 1911 BTR

Known for its sensitivity to women’s wide-ranging needs and desires, Ebel is keenly aware that they increasingly appreciate beautiful mechanisms, including meticulously crafted watch movements.

The Gem-set 1911 BTR incorporates all the signature features of the men’s collection launched in 2006 and which became an instant hit among watch lovers. These qualities include the Ebel proprietary COSC-certified Caliber 137 chronograph movement, developed, assembled and controlled in-house, as well as the distinctive Architects of Time oscillating weight.

While proudly bearing the elegantly sporting look much prized by contemporary men and women, typified by the tastefully arranged and highly legible 30-minute, 12-hour and 60-second counters, along with easy-grip pushers, the Gem-set 1911 BTR is no mere diminutive replica of the men’s model.

On the contrary, in keeping with Ebel’s proven know-how and expertise in the field of ladies’ watches, it has been enriched with exquisite details and finishing that make it both a perfect timekeeping partner and a luxurious accessory.

This authentic piece of jewelry owes its unmistakable aura of refinement and distinction to the perfectly integrated gem-setting adorning the entirely polished steel case, the natural white mother-of-pearl dial set with 11 diamonds and the seamless integration of the matching hand-sewn white crocodile leather strap.

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.
