This Ebel le Modulor chronograph has an automatic in house chronometer rated movement, and also has the full set to accompany it.


Ebel, along with Rolex, relied on Zenith for their automatic chronograph movements.  But in 1995 they launched the La Modulor 137 movement, which was exclusive to Ebel (although the base plate was also used by Ebel’s then sister company, Breguet.)  This watch has the dated paperwork to show it was sold in July 1997 for £2,200 (after discount).  The bracelet was purchased from Ebel in 1998 for an additional £712.50.


The completeness of this set is impressive.  The outer and inner boxes are perfect.  The paperwork includes a service guarantee (now expired) and the original receipts for both the watch and the bracelet.  The hangtag, with matching serial number, is still there.  This was a careful owner.

The watch itself is high quality.  The sapphire crystal is unmarked, the top hat pushers undented.  The crown can be used both to manually wind the watch and also set the quick set date.  the subdials feature a record groove, meaning they catch the light nicely.  The stainless steel case and bracelet only have light surface scuffs.  The bezel does have some small marks, and the spare link is missing two screws (each link has 9 components!), so our measurement of the bracelet doesn’t include the extra link.  The display caseback allows you to see the decorated movement in action, and the deployant clasp is firm.

This watch will be supplied with a presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
