Although Égard Watches are relative newcomers in the world of horology the brand has created quite an impact since it debuted four years ago with bold statement wristwatches featuring intricate layered dials.
Founded in 2012 by father and son team Peter and Ilan Srulovicz out of a passion for well-crafted timepieces and their intricate design, Égard has fashioned a name for itself among watch collectors and aficionados alike.
Not only does the brand serve as a testament to the unbreakable bond between a parent and child, both of the Sruloviczs work together in their Los Angeles and Toronto offices to expressly design and create Égard timepiece collections for men and women, featuring only the finest materials with precision Swiss and Japanese movements.
Legendary film and TV actor William Shatner approached Égard to collaborate on an exclusive line of timepieces after admiring an Égard watch on another film actor’s wrist. Shatner worked with Ilan to create the Passages Watch Series, a limited edition collection for men and women.
The Passages collection features distinctively-shaped contoured cases, multi-layered dials, specially-cut domed sapphire crystals above the dial, precision movements inside and Shatner’s signature engraved on the numbered case back.
Over thirty Égard wristwatches are scheduled to debut this weekend at popular online retailer WorlofWatches.com. In addition, twelve select models will also be featured on WorldofWatches TV this Saturday and Sunday evenings, including several styles from the popular Passages Series.
The Égard Passages Automatic men’s watch makes a bold statement on the wrist with its robust 45mm wide case in black ion-plated stainless steel and striking black rubber strap. The multi-layered dial with a carbon fiber background and meteorite dust accents features an open-heart, small-second and sun/moon indicator subdials along with Swiss super-luminova hands. The semi-skeleton caseback lets you see the intricate automatic movement inside.
The Passages Beauty Blue watch for women sparkles with glamour and allure. The lustrous, highly polished stainless steel case is presented on a blue snakeskin-textured leather strap. Shimmering round-cut crystals weave intrigue on the lustrous bezel.
The iridescent blue mother-of-pearl dial shines with polished sword hands, inlaid crystal hour markers and a moon-phase window below the 12 o’clock hour. Features include an automatic date calendar above the 6 o’clock hour and decorative star accents at the quarter hour markers. Quality quartz movement inside provides precise time-keeping accuracy. Women’s watch is 37mm wide and 10mm thick.
Both watches are water-resistant to 50 meters or 165 feet.
