The new Ebel timekeeping creation reveals an alternating pattern of glass and steel, reminding of contemporary architecture with its art museums where one may see large bay windows amid a metal frame.
The choice of colors based on elegant understatement and subtle contrasts draws attention to the intricate world of the watch mechanism accommodated below the alternating slate grey and black openworked dial.
The elaborate Caliber 288 comprises 436 parts. The remarkable precision of the mechanism is guaranteed by a double COSC certification given before and after the perpetual calendar module assembly. The movement counts off the day of the week, the date, the month, the years, and phases of the moon presented via a superbly accurate astronomical display. The transparent sapphire crystal case-back allows to admire the refined beauty of the movement with the Ebel signature 'compass' oscillating weight.
The dial of the Ebel 1911 BTR Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, displaying such a vast amount of information, still maintains outstanding readability. It features four sapphire crystal counters with a metallic matt appearance for enhanced legibility. The dial is completed with 12 white Superluminova hour-markers perfectly visible against the dial rim. The transparency of the entire structure is maintained due to gold-plated diamond-polished skeleton hour and minute hands.
