Luxury Watches: The founders of Elini hail from a family that has been dedicated to quality, design and overall extravagance of diamonds and jewelry for over 60 years. It was in 1989 that the company was created in Antwerp, Belgium, the city at the center of the global diamond trade.
Over the years, Elini has had its hand at a wide array of areas in the diamond world: fashionable jewelry set with precious stones to exclusive pieces studded with the precious gem. But it wasn’t until 2003 that the company moved into the watch arena.
Since then, Elini has released numerous watch designs for both men and women, ranging from the powerful and sporty looks for men to the delicate and lavish looks for women.
Their newest designs, however, are two seemingly opposite watches for men. The Commander has a sporty, round face design with many intricate details while the Captain makes a statement with a square case and multi-level dial.
Both watches by Elini are masculine, yet high fashion. While the Commander piece is definitely the sportier of the two, the Captain’s bold square face ushers a more refined response.
Like many of the most popular designs in the world of timepiece design today, the Captain’s dial with multiple levels gives wearers a deeper look, below the face of the watch and past the hands and numbers. With the powerful Swiss made automatic movement, the automatic CL-888, all 46 mm of the cutting-edge square case is distinctive, powerful and unique.
Elini proves time and again that it is on the frontlines of watch designing, adding both the Commander and Captain, the most recent, to their long list of exceptionally designed pieces. With more than 20,000 different designs in both jewelry and watches behind them, Elini has made quite a dent in the watch world, making it a force to be reckoned with among luxury timepieces.
