Ebel Adds Khaki to its Classic Sports Chrono Collection

Go sporty! Go Khaki! Ebel is jumping on the Khaki bandwagon
with its newest additions to its Classic Sports Chrono Watch Collection. In addition other new natural colors will also become available - beige, brown, coral pink and navy. It seems Khaki has become the "must have" color, and why not - Khaki is the color that most evokes a sense of wild adventure.

The newest models have the signature hexagon shaped case, and distinctive screws surrounding the dial. The Chronograph seconds hand matches the strap color providing an intriguing aesthetic quality to the watch. The dial sports three sub dials, but still the dial is easy to read and clutter free. The Classic Sports Chrono is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 50mm. The watch has a polished smooth finished with elegant pushers on the side.
Vertical indented striping on the rubber strap adds to the watches overall sporty look. Ebel has not released any pricing on its latest version, but being that this watch is crafted in steel, and is powered by a quartz ETA movement as opposed to a more labor intensive mechanical movement, the price will probably be quite affordable.

Ebel History
Ebel, a company capable of crafting a watch with the perfect balance of feminity and elegance. In July 1911, Eugene Blum and Alice Levy, husband and wife stepped into the world of Horology by registering their new company. The name they chose is the acronym for their names: Eugene Blum Et Levy and thus nestled in the hills of La Chaux de Fonds, became the Capital of Ebel.

Just one year later, in 1912, Ebel presented its first wristwatches. In 1914 Ebel won a gold medal at the Swiss National Exhibition for patented ring watches with pallet escapement and a hidden time setting. In 1929 Charles-Eugene, son of Eugene and Alice joined the company, and together with watchmaker Marcel Reuche, he organized a flawless production control system, which guaranteed unsurpassed quality. From 1939-1945 Ebel went into production for the British Royal Air Force. Through the years Ebel has received many awards for their innovative cutting-edge ideas.
In 1975 Eugene and Alice's son, Pierre-Alain Blum, gained full control over Ebel. Ebel catapulted into a new dimension of watch manufacturing, making Ebel what it is today: One of the top five Luxury Watch Brands on the market. Ebel is now owned by Movado Group Inc.
