    Grail incoming ...

    I've lusted over the Ebel hexagonal case models ever since handling one years ago. The fit and finish are superb, especially with the Tekton collection.

    But, never seriously considered pulling the trigger until yesterday.
    Found the special issue FC Arsenal model too cool to pass up.

    These have a special version of Ebel's in-house cal. 139 movement. Dubbed cal. 245, both the minute and hour registers are geared to time a football game 2 x 45 min.

    In-house COSC chronograph movement. Its awesome.
    Here's some phone pics.

    I believe this movement design was sold to Ulysses Nardin.

    Believe it or not, it does, and very cleverly.

    Note the double hand on the 45 minute register. As soon as one end goes past the 45 min mark, the other side continues to count. The extra time can be read directly.
