Swiss watchmakers, Ebel were founded in 1911 by husband and wife team, Eugene Blum and Alice Levy. Since then, the prestigious company has gone from strength to strength creating some of the world’s most sought-after timepieces. The designs from Ebel vary from simple three handed dials, to sophisticated chronographs, to beautiful moon phases – the men’s range of which features both automatic movements and quartz movements. Since Ebel’s inception, the company has remained true to their core values – producing watches that marry a distinctive style with technical expertise. The designs are crafted from a number of innovative materials and talented craftsmen working at the company’s La Chaux-de-Fonds-based manufacturing facilities combine these materials with traditional watchmaking methods.
Ebel watches for men are a popular choice for those who like classic Swiss wristwatches. The signature wave-shaped links on those bracelets from the iconic Ebel Wave collection have come to be one of the most distinguishable design characteristics of the entire Ebel universe. Perfect for slipping on and off the wrist, the design of these specially crafted links feel and look almost fluid-like against the skin. Designers at Ebel’s watchmaking facilities ensure that each timepiece created is comfortable for wearing throughout the day and long into the night – another design feature that adds to the desirability of these prestigious wristwatches.
Although Eugene Blum and Alice Levy made for a balanced team, bringing a mixture of male and female designs to life, men’s Ebel watches have gained a global following over the last few decades. Popular not only for their unmistakable style but also for their luxury status, it is easy for an Ebel timepiece to double up as a piece of jewellery by night. The gentleman may enjoy combining his Ebel watch with a classic pair of stainless steel cufflinks or a smart office suit, the smooth polished underside of the watch providing comfort against the skin for hour upon hour of wear. The men’s Ebel Wave collection features all-stainless steel designs as well as those enhanced by PVD coated finishes in rose gold and yellow gold. Every gent’s Ebel watch is also equipped with a scratch resistant and anti reflective sapphire crystal glass lens which provides the perfect view into the dial as well as acting as a protective shelter for the watch face and its accompanying decorative elements. The glass is also used for the caseback in those watches fitted with an automatic movement, providing the wearer with an exclusive insight into some of Ebel’s expert craftsmanship.
The men’s Ebel Wave 42mm Blue Index Dial Chronograph Watch is a particularly stylish timepiece. The dial is dressed in mesmerizing blue sunray tones, punctuated by a trio of chronograph counters that are operational via the two polished push pieces at 2 and 4 o’clock on the bezel. The chronograph minutes, seconds and hours features are accompanied by a date aperture at 4:30 dressed against a white background for enhancing legibility. The fluid-like links of the stainless steel Wave bracelet wrap around the gent’s wrist with effortlessness, creating a sophisticated companion for all those important occasions in life.
