The 1911 collection is symbolically designated by the brand’s year of creation and embodies the timeless values of Ebel. The 1911 TEKTON is the most daring and avant-garde watch for men in the entire Ebel collection, the most technically accomplished too. This model is solely animated by a Ebel Certified Chronometer (COSC) property movement. This iconic 1911 TEKTON line, whose name is derived from the Greek root of the word architect – architekton, which literally means chief (arch) of construction (tekton) – does honor to the inspiration of its name. From the entire Ebel collection, it is the most meticulously crafted piece that embodies the quintessence of watchmaking expertise, elaborate design and craftsmanship cultivated by the Architects of Time
Ebel’s original 1911 Chronograph relied on a Zenith El Primero movement finished by Ebel, but the company worked with Lemania to develop its own chronograph movement for the Tekton. By designing an entirely original rotor winding system for the Lemania unit, Ebel reduced the thickness of the final cased watch. The movement itself contributes to the shockingly low wrist height of the 1911 Tekton Chronograph.
The Ebel Caliber 139 found in this luxury watch was built and finished by Ebel in its own workshops. The gorgeous movement is visible through both the sapphire display caseback and the skeleton dial; Ebel’s pedigree as an etablisseur or “finisher of parts” is on display in its polished, brushed, and drawn glory. To this day, very few Hublot movements are finished to this standard, and even fewer are equipped with in-house movements.
The Cal. 139 is a certified Swiss chronometer for confirmed accuracy. Lest doubt linger regarding the virtues of Ebel’s movement, consider that in 2012, celebrated innovator Ulysse Nardin purchased the movement rights, all inventory of movement blanks, and five Ebel watchmakers to secure the Cal. 137/139 as the basis of UN’s first “in-house” chronograph.
Absolutely gorgeous movement! You have to see it in person to really appreciate it!
