Named after founders Eugene Blum and Alice Lèvy (the watch company name is an acronym of ‘Eugene Blum et Levy’), Ebel is based in the watchmaking town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. This husband and wife team married Eugene’s technical prowess with Alice’s jewellery expertise and passion for elegant design, creating award-winning ageless pieces.
Founded in 1911, Ebel has long-lasting ties with the worlds of architecture and art, providing sponsorship to various individuals including Swiss architect Le Corbusier, a pioneer of modern architecture, and contemporary Swiss painter Jean Arcelin.
The watch brand collected its first accolade in 1914 – the gold medal at Switzerland’s National Exhibition for a delicate ladies’ ring watch with a hidden clock face. Ebel carries a strong women’s watch collection with a particular focus on uniting the worlds of horology and jewellery with ultra-feminine lines that feature gentle curves and precious stones.
