The watch features Ebels esteemed in-house COSC chronometer certified Caliber 137 automatic chronograph movement. As an example of the traits that placed Ebel among the top tier of Swiss watch makers in the view of industry insiders, Ebel developed and began producing their own high quality in-house chronograph movement over a decade before Omega and Breitling began developing their own in-house chronograph movements.
