Ebel Marks 100 Years With New Timepieces

By P. Joseph

Luxury watch brand Ebel are to launch two new watches this Autumn as part of its 100-year anniversary celebrations.

Last month the Swiss company completed a century of watch-making, and to mark the occasion it has unveiled two mechanical watches: the Classic 100 and the 1911 AoT (standing for ‘Architects of Time’)

Limited to 1,911 pieces, the Ebel Classic 100 represents an elegant nod to the past, emphasised by the use of the brand's original logo from 1911.

The timepiece features an automatic movement housed in a 40mm stainless steel case. Other notable details include sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, the date at 3 o clock, diamond-polished leaf-shaped hands, a blue steel sweep-seconds hand, a shiny black alligator leather strap, and water resistance to 5 ATM.

The brand's other new creation, the 1911 AoT, will be released in two versions: in stainless steel (500 pieces) and rose gold (100 pieces) - both equipped with Ebel’s own Caliber 137. The watch’s 44.5 mm case is outfitted with a special dial featuring the anniversary logo.

Ebel was founded in 1911 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchâtel, Switzerland by Eugene Blum and Alice Levy.
