    Does anyone know the movement in the Ebel 9126F Classic Wave?

    Chrono with the small seconds at the "3". I am hoping it is the 137 in-house movement but I believe they all have the small seconds at the "9".

    Thanks!

    Doubtful. I don't believe the 137 came in any of the Wave models. And the price point of the wave at full retail suggests it does not have the 137. The 137 came in the 1911 BTR line.

    Here's a photo of my 9126 on the 'wave' steel bracelet. You can see the small seconds at '3'.

    AD told me this has an ETA movement but this seems strange. It is definitely NOT a Valjoux 7750 i) the watch is too thin for this movement, ii) no Valjoux 'swing' to the rotor, iii) the chrono pushers and winder stem line up suggesting an intergrated chrono movement instead of a stacked chronon module like the 7750 (and most chronos).

    So what could be in it?

    Hi Rod. The 137 first appeared in the 1911 as the 'Modulor' over 15 years ago, long before the BTR.

    I've seen them referenced as being cal 127. I'm not sure exactly what the make up of it is but with (I think) 37 jewels it's likely to be a modular ETA.

    Thanks for the clarification Glenn. I tried to find reference to the movement in the Wave for the OP, but couldn't find anything definitive other than it did not have the in-house 137.

    Yeah it seems to be a fairly rare beast actually, and info is scarce. Even the 3 hand classic wave automatic is rather uncommon. The vast majority are quartz.

    The 126 is, I'm reasonably sure, an ETA 2894, which is a 2892 with a Dubois-Depraz chrono module installed be ETA. Still very good quality, and at least Top grade in EBELs. EBEL used the same movement in their Brasilia chronographs.

    All 137's are marked as 137's, and derivatives are the 139 and several in the 200's. The El Primero, which might have been used in some pre-BTR models as late as the mid-2000's, is always marked cal. 134. But I think all of these are 1911's, which not all Sportwaves were.
