Elka Teams Up Again With Ace Jewelers To Launch A New Limited Edition

Just yesterday we talked here about the latest H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner with a minimalism dial and today we return to the topic with another launch now led by Elka Watch Co. in partnership with Ace Jewelrs. 

This, which is the second collaboration between the two brands, is part of the watchmaker’s D-Series Essence and comes with a sunburst blue dial inspired by the open sea with just three hands and devoid of any other elements or markings (or almost), proving that minimalist watches are on the rise and here to stay. 

This exclusive edition comes mounted in a round polished and brushed stainless steel case with dimensions of 40.80mm in diameter, 10.80mm in thickness and 46.50mm lug-to-lug distance. Domed sapphire crystal, fluted crown at 3 o’clock with the brand’s signature, screwed-in solid case back engraved with the name of the two collaborating brands and individual numbering, and finally, 30m water resistance. 

The blue domed dial comes with a sunburst finish, faceted pencil hour and minute hands, a center seconds hand with a leaf-shaped counterweight and white arched brand lettering at 12 o’clock followed by “Automatic” of the movement and matching the reduced inscription “Swiss Made” at bottom. 

Inside, it comes equipped with the La Joux-Perret G100 movement with 24 jewels, which reaches 28,800 Vph and offers up to 68 hours of power reserve. 

The watch comes attached to a brown nubuck leather strap with a steel pin buckle with the brand’s logo. 

It is a limited edition of 25 numbered pieces, which can be found exclusively at the Ace & Dik boutique in Amsterdam or in the Elka and Ace Jewelers online stores for a price of €1,625 plus tax.
