The warm, smiling face of precision timekeeping
As the festive season approaches, with many people around the world eager to salute a new year full of hopes, EBEL is happy to introduce a timely reminder that accuracy and rigorous standards can also be perfectly expressed in a charmingly congenial manner.
The inimitably smooth and generous 45.4 mm-diameter hexagonal monohull case, with its five distinctive screws and fully integrated crown, now appears clothed in the gentle yet refined glow of pink gold subtly alternating 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 – in what many lucky owners describe as a “wink and a smile” lay-out.
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.
A hand-stitched brown alligator leather strap, secured by comfort-enhancing sloping lugs, sets the finishing touch to the noble appearance of this luminous new variation that will glimmer softly in the firelight and brighten up even the coldest winter day!
