Ebel cal 134 (El Primero) now 21 years old

Mar 14, 2019,05:48 AM

Swapped the bracelet for a sharkskin and now share here.  Day to day I have very little call for wearing any of my chronos and this Ebel has lacked my wrist attention for a long while.  I love its understated dial and it has been with me on some great adventures in an earlier life.  El Primero cal 40.0 inside, this Ebel tells a story (for Zenith), (and as they say at Rolex!).  Shame that Ebel no longer produces these quality watches having developed its own manufactured movements.

The weekend fast approaches!

It’s a shame that Ebel lost its way some years ago.

My sincere apologies for misinformation - I got the manufacture date wrong. New in 1988, not 1998. A true veteran. HAGWE Clive
