Ernst Benz Mario Batali Limited Edition Chronograph

Swiss watch manufacturer Ernst Benz has partnered with iconic chef and restaurateur Mario Batali to create a limited edition series of timepieces to benefit the Food Bank For New York City

The Mario Batali Limited Edition Ernst Benz Great Circle Automatic is an enhanced version of the original design, featuring accents in Batali’s standout signature orange color.

Mario Batali has personally collaborated with Leonid Khankin, Managing Director and Chief Creative Officer of the Ernst Benz brand, to design and produce the exclusive collection of timepieces. “My partnership with Ernst Benz is borne out of my love to celebrate life with simple things of the highest quality, this new watch created by my friend Leonid Khankin is exactly that. To bring art and public service together is a privilege I will never squander, the opportunity to help the Food Bank For New York City provide food for over a quarter million meals A DAY in NYC is a joyous part of my celebration,” says Batali.

This special series of timepieces will be made available in three sizes: 36mm, 40mm and 47mm, and each size will come in a limited edition of 250 pieces.

Batali, regarded as one the world most innovative and inspiring chefs, owns fifteen restaurants across North America – nine in New York City, three in Las Vegas and three in Los Angeles. He is also a regular on the the wildly popular Food Network series, “Iron Chef America.”
