Ernst Benz Creates ChronoScope PEK Limited Edition Watch

Feb 15, 2010
To celebrate the Chinese New Year, Ernst Benz has launched its intriguing ChronoScope PEK Limited Edition watch.

The timepiece represents a precious object of design encouraged by Chinese numerology and the number 8 in particular, which is a symbol of well-being in Chinese culture. The visual appeal of the watch offers a worthy tribute to the glorious past and great future of Beijing.

Developed and produced in Switzerland, the Ernst Benz ChronoScope PEK Limited Edition watch employs the brands iconic 47 mm case, rendered in brushed stainless steel.

The dial of the watch is featured in two interpretations: noir (black) and vermilion(china red). The release of both versions has been restricted to just 88 pieces. Besides, the brand has issued an additional limited series of 8 items per dial, proposed with a case, crafted from black PVD-treated brushed steel.

Both variations of the dial are embellished with a conventional Chinese motif of fire. They also reveal traditional Chinese characters, which have substituted numerals. Each dial exposes the 8th hour marker presented as 08. It implies the importance of this year.

The unique Ernst Benz ChronoScope PEK Limited Edition watch is also identifiable thanks to the brands signature hands, as well as its conventional black PVD-coated rotor, housed into both steel and PVD-treated interpretations.

As found out, the reference numbers for the exclusive Ernst Benz watches comprise the acronym PEK for Peking, the historical name for Beijing and the airport code for Beijing Capital International Airport. The latter represents the first official airport of the Peoples Republic of China.
