EBEL goes green with the naturally beautiful Onde 36 mm malachite dial
Those with discerning taste that transcends trends would not be swayed by Pantone announcing that emerald green is the color of 2013, but with fashion designers in the luxury industry supporting this pronouncement, and the catwalks awash with styles from green sports luxe garments to haute couture evening gowns in the jewel tone, it is perhaps a bold color choice not to be ignored.
Malachite has long been used for personal adornment. The pattern on each semiprecious stone mined is totally unique, giving the individual face of each of these new EBEL Onde 36 mm models its own personality – and making each watch a one-of-a-kind investment.
Deep green is a strong color that complements many skin tones, but requires a certain attitude of stylish confidence to wear. This new Onde is not a seasonal purchase. It is a striking piece of jewelry that melds fashion with practicality, an adornment in its own right. The trend toward elegant dressing and cultivating an eye for beautifully made pieces to build an individual wardrobe is more prescient.
The malachite-faced watch sits proudly within the EBEL Onde family, launched in Basel in 2012. The dial exercises a mesmeric quality as you admire the deep green striated hues within each piece. It boasts a clean design with a simple yet unusual 18K green gold bezel that showcases the malachite dial, allowing it to take centre stage. Designed for a dynamic yet practical woman, the watch is waterproof to 50m while the crown sparkling with 18 diamonds appeals to her innate sense of glamour and luxury. EBEL’s signature double E logo at 12:00 sits opposite an applied Arabic numeral at 6:00, enhancing the design’s exotic nature. The smooth green alligator strap with stainless steel buckle brings the perfect final touch to this enthralling addition to the Onde family.
The wearer of this watch is a strong, sensual woman who appreciates modern design. She has a deep understanding of fashion, but maintains her own style identity and wears her EBEL watch with knowing insouciance.
