    Ebel Hexagon

    I am thinking in pulling the trigger on this bad boy -- <$2k.
    I would love to hear opinions from anyone that has/had one.

    They are really nice watches for the money. Keep in mind though that Hexagon series does not use their in house movements. The ones with complications are all modular. Good news though is that Ebel use high grade movements. Also worth noting are that they are quite large and this model in particular is especially big. If you are cool with that and like big watches, its really good. You should look at 1911, BTR series for their in house 137 caliber.

    One more thing, you cant change the strap on these to aftermarket ones. You can only use Ebel straps. There are very few aftermarket options and even they cost a lot. The ones from Ebel are very pricey. So essentially, you are stuck with the stock strap and if something happens to it, you need to spend a good amount to get a replacement. While it gives a very good integrated look to the watch, it needs to be taken care of properly if you want it to last.

    You're right; did not realize that.
    It's a Soprod 9004, based on the ETA 2892 according to http://www.worldwatchreview.com/2009...rve-automatic/
    I am still on the fence if it's a good buy for $1500-2000.

    A Swiss retrograde with power reserve for <$2000?

    Quite a bargain I must say. The diameter is 45.4mm - the only thing that'd put me on the fence is the size, not the price.
    I'm content with my watch collection

    The Hexagons are very classy watches. I would consider one if I had the funds. If your buying from a Movado Company Store though make sure you realize your getting a refurbished watch. Its a great discount but thats the reason it's so much less than retail. They don't really admit that either but all of them have a service record and come with "refurbished" on the invoices. They do a good job refurbishing them though compared to Concord which look flat out beaten when they're put into the display cases.

    Servicing a Hexagon is also a little cheaper than if you were to get a 1911 BTR with the inhouse calibre 137 serviced because the Hexagons essentially use a modified ETA movement.

    If you like the watch & you have the money then go for it.

    Wow, that is a nice looking watch. The size puts me off but if you have a suitable wrist, go for it (and post pics).

    It's not hexagonal though

    Re: Ebel Hexagon

    Is there any truth to the talk that Ebel is going to move towards focusing on women's watches? If there is any truth to it, it's interesting they are cranking out 45mm beasts like this (as classy as they may be).
