    My New Ebel 1911 BTR 137 Chronograph! Waaaay Coool

    OK....most of you knew Rick Denney made me do this (LOL), but I'm so glad he did! It came today and I'm extremely impressed. I had actually not seen one in person. The pictures, don't do it justice. It's really a nice piece. Feels great on my wrist. And while I don't normally like deployment clasps, this one is infinitely adjustable, and the alligator leather is really nicely done. Oh, the red stitching on the leather, really is cool too.

    So, without further ado, here are some pictures as I KNOW pictures are mandatory and I don't want to disappoint:

    I must admit I'm waaaaay more stoked about this great piece than I thought I might be. And to own a piece of history is nice.

    Good to here that you're happy with it. After reading all the posts about the deals at the movado outlets I actually called the seatlle outlet mall store(not actually in Seattle) to see if they had them. Fortunately or unfortunately they do. I say fortunately because I want one and unfortunately because I don't think it's in the budget although I'm working on that. If they still have them next month I'll have to cross the border(I'm Canadian) and pick one up. I really think you scored with that one. Congrats.

    Very nice indeed...congrats!
    I agree with your comment on the deployant. Ebel's deployant design is the best I have come across to date.

    I hope they have one available, but if there's any way to move your time table up, it would be good. They're selling out all over the place.

    Must admit I'm really surprised as I truly tend to dislike deployant's, but this one is fantastic. I had read that Ebel's leather on these watches is top notch and it is for sure.
