This new EBEL 1911 Marine edition comes in the galvanic deep blue dial, and its unidirectional rotating bezel with black aluminium ring gives a stunning contrast. This exquisitely designed timepiece is thus our Blue Dial Monday pick.
The hexagonal case shape, balanced proportions and exquisite details, and classic five-link metallic bracelet characterise the magnificent EBEL 1911 models introduced this year. Water resistant up to 200 meters, this edition can also be worn with a black fabric strap made from recycled ocean-bound plastic.
The EBEL 1911 Marine mechanical timepieces share the design philosophy behind the famous Villa Turque, created by renowned architect Le Corbusier in 1916: “beauty marries function.” Since 1986 when the brand acquired the architectural wonder, the building has been known as La Maison EBEL.
It is a powerful source of inspiration for EBEL – particularly the 1911 timepieces, whose five bezel screws are a nod to the five construction principles that distinguish the villa’s reputation. A reflection of Le Corbusier’s masterpiece, the iconic EBEL 1911 is presented with a design that is both timeless and infused with the brand’s heritage.
