As an homage to its abode in Switzerland, Ebel has created a series of limited edition timepieces. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Swiss watchmaker Ebel has unveiled a new collection of haute horology to mark the 30th anniversary of its home in Switzerland. Named La Maison Ebel Limited Edition, the line pays tribute to the Villa Turque also known as La Maison Ebel, a structure that was designed by famed architect Le Corbusier a century ago.

Drawing inspiration from the villa's oval window, the new timepieces feature mother-of-pearl dials in the same shape but in three subtly different variations; a dial without gemstones, one with diamonds on the outer ring and finally one with diamonds set on an inner oval window. All three interpretations however are bedecked with diamonds that encircle the front of the case.

Also within the dial is a date window placed at the 3 o'clock position as well as a moonphase complete with a guilloche design mimicking sunrays. At the back, a transparent case allows a peek into the exquisite movement. The La Maison Ebel Limited Edition is available in yellow, white or pink gold with the option of a matching bracelet, or midnight blue and burgundy straps made from alligator leather.

"La Maison Ebel Limited Edition perfectly represents the symbolic continuum of a milestone of a glorious past, an admirable present and an exciting future," said Flavio Pellegrini, Global President of Ebel. "An existence built on the same founding principle of the architectural magic that happens when beauty marries function."
