Premium Swiss watchmaker Ebel is a name synonymous with elegance, luxury and design since its founding in 1911. The brand was started by a husband and wife team, Eugene Blum and Alice Levy in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
Ebel’s name comes from the initials of its founders: Eugene Blum et (and) Levy, who pioneered many milestones, including their strap wrist watch in 1912 and their diamond jewelry watch ring in 1914.
During World War II from 1939 to 1945, Ebel supplied watches to the British Royal Air Force to assist pilots in their air missions throughout Europe.
In 1970 the founder’s grandson Pierre Alain Blum took over the helm of the company, leading it to become the world-class watchmaker it is today. Under Blum’s direction in 1977, Ebel introduced the Sport Classic Collection for men and women featuring a rounded, hexagonal shaped case and distinctive wave length bracelet.
The Sport Classic became an instant success and remains one of the most popular luxury watches for men and women today. In 1985, Ebel followed the Sport Classic with the Beluga collection, a lustrous and graceful collection of timepieces created expressly for women. With fluid, flowing contours and highly polished lines the Beluga was another international success.
The Beluga became even more popular in 1999, when singer and entertainer Madonna wore one in print ads for Ebel, featuring just her henna-tattooed hand wearing a Beluga diamond model.
Both the Sport Classic and Beluga collections remain popular today along with more recent introductions from Ebel, including the 1911, Tarawa and Brasilia series. All of these Ebel timepieces are available at prominent online retailer The Watchery.
The Ebel Beluga diamond watch is pure enchantment… and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, it is an excellent choice for Mom. This glamorous timepiece features a contoured stainless steel case and distinctive steel link bracelet polished to a glowing patina.
Forty-six shimmering, round-cut diamonds are prong-set to perfection on the bezel. Luminous Mother-of Pearl dial shines with polished silver tone hands and twelve diamond hour markers.
Features include premium Swiss-made quartz movement and water-resistance to 50 meters or 165 feet.
