New for 2013, Swiss luxury watch brand EBEL has released their men’s 43mm X-1 Chronograph. Coolly monochromatic in contemporary grey, it has a chic masculine design but with a modern, unisex appeal.
The X1 name is inspired by the brands founding in 1911 in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland by Eugene Blum and Alice Levy and the contemporary design looks to the future while paying tribute to EBEL’s rich legacy.
Housing a precisely engineered Swiss quartz chronograph movement, and water-resistant to 200 meters, the grey galvanic dial features a uni-directional rotating bezel and an anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire window over the dial. Its wave-shaped links, an EBEL signature, are created in stainless steel with an optional grey PVD coating. Luxurious and playfully sportive, the X-1 Chrono is an innovative design of iconic inspiration.
In stainless steel: £2,000, in stainless steel with grey PVD: £2,300, www.ebel.com
