EBEL X-1 for Valentine’s Day 2014

Romeo and Juliet, Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, Bonnie and Clyde – it is human nature to be compelled by love stories recounted in novels and on the silver screen. Romantic partnerships have heralded the force of creativity throughout history, and the entwined love story at EBEL resonates back to its founding roots. The partnership of EBEL’s creators, married in life, is at the heart of the masculine and feminine voices that echo throughout the brand’s design DNA.

Traditionally the Feast of Saint Valentine, conjuring visions of love, fidelity and partnership, is a time to honor one’s beloved. What better tribute to your loved one, than a gift of matching watches – one for him or her, and one for you – symbolizing your partnership and devotion to each other for time eternal. United in life and in time, in tune with each other’s interests and sense of style. For the couple who appreciates elegant style and exquisite workmanship, this chic pairing announces to the world your refined taste and your joy at having found each other.

EBEL’s gift suggestion for Valentine’s Day 2014 is not merely scaled versions of one watch, rather each version complements the other’s unique style. The masculine EBEL X-1 Chronograph 43mm in gleaming stainless steel features a rotating bezel with raised minute-track and sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Its strong commanding presence with a sporty dynamic edge is also evidenced on the dial by applied Arabic numerals and indexes with Super-LumiNova.

The EBEL X-1 34mm automatic, fashioned in stainless steel and warm 18K rose gold, shares the same sporty edge as its partner via a rotating bezel with engraved minute-track, three applied Arabic numerals and eight applied indexes, but its smaller scale and gold-plated wave-shaped links bring out the feminine charm of the design.

This is a partnership of equals, with a focus on design, appealing to couples who share a sense of adventure and an appreciation for quality. As in all good marriages, they are not mirror images, but each complements and draws out the best in the other, enhancing their union.
