EPHESOS CHRONOGRAPH II

 

 

Ephesos Chronograph II.
Celebrating the success of the early version, Bornova is proud to meet with your further expectations.
A new, left handed Ephesos chronograph, spiced with meteorite and ruthenium dial options in rich variety of colour choices.
The complex algorithm of simplicity gives us a chance to catch most simple, basic beauty.

This Model has a minimalistic look by skipping the 12 hours and permanent second counters and use the only and most essential 30 Minutes counter. Considering that 10% of the worldwide population consists of left handers, it is sad to see that there are not more models for left hand. Moreover, commonly known tachymeter scale is replaced with a more useful, Telemeter. Stepping forward at the first glance, the new Ephesos Chronograph is a long-lasting experience that pleases you in every occasion you wear. Beating hart is Swiss ETA work horse Valjoux and this timepiece will maintain its beauty and will function for ages with high accuracy.

Meteorite used in the new collection is called Gibeon Meteorite which hit Namibia around 4 billion years ago. With an estimated Weight of 26.000Kg it is one of the bigger meteorites and many haute horlogerie (high art of watchmaking ) brands favour this Meteorite against others because of unique chemical composition of Iron, Nickel and small amounts of Cobalt. Crystalline structure of this meteorite gives it the unique look and the Gibeon meteorite is favoured by the most Haute Horlogerie Swiss brands. Dial plates are carefully sliced from meteorite, exposing the beauty of the unique crystalline structure in front of your eyes and revealing 4 billion years in past.

Ruthenium is the most effective hardener for Precious metals and Ruthenium is classified as a Transition Metal which can be classified in different states of matter e.g. solid, liquid or gas. The symbol in the periodic table is “Ru” and it’s atomic number 44. The name originated from the Latin word Ruthenia which basically means Russia. It mainly can be found in Russia’s Ural mountain
region, North- and South America as well as in South Africa. The reason why we want to use this on our dials, was the fact that the counters of a chronograph dial, nowadays are being made with a technology which doesn't allow us to make pitch-black or snow-white colours. Ruthenium can be applied in many shades of gray up to pitch-black, depending on the quantity of Ruthenium applied.
