The timepiece stirs imagination by its three-dimensional architecture. The face of the Ebel watch is dug deep reminding the bowl of a stadium, while the rivets passing through the crystal will make one think of the huge entrance towers you will see at each corner of Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, the stadium that is the home of Real Madrid.
The Ebel 1911 Tekton Real Madrid watch is also special due to its “Madridistas” chronograph function, blue dial flange and gold seconds. The colors of the timepiece make it immediately recognizable among avid Real Madrid’s fans.
Moreover, Ebel has developed a proprietary movement - Ebel Caliber 245 automatic chronograph - to be accommodated by all of its football watches, including the one reviewed by watches.infoniac.com. The movement is specifically elaborated to measure match half-times and having number “245” in its name, implying 2 x 45 minutes. It even indicates injury time.
The signature feature of the movement is the football-shaped oscillating weight, featuring the club logo and the limited edition number. The precision of the movement is crowned by the prestigious COSC- chronometer certification.
The case incorporates a one-of-a-kind monobloc sapphire crystal and bezel construction, provided with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The screwed-in hexagonal-shaped crown is crafted from polished titanium and features a black rubber head. The case-back is produced from flat sapphire crystal.
The Ebel 1911 Tekton Real Madrid watch is expected to be available beginning with October 2009.
