I'm very surprised to see that most of Ebel's models featuring the caliber 137 movement are offered with flat sapphire crystals.
I have been looking to purchase a 1911 chronograph since it offers an in-house movement (based on Lemania) with an interesting design at an affordable price. However, my research has lead me to believe that the crystals are flat, not the type of thing one sees paired with higher end models and in-house movements. Am I mistaken in this assumption?
Here's an example of the Ebel 1911 chrono with the caliber 137 from breitlingsource.com:
Also there's a review here that states that the upscale BTR models also have flat crystals:

This to me is something of a deal breaker as I expect domed/curved crystals from high-end timepieces. Are there any Ebel fans that can tell me I'm wrong!
