That is a real beauty! I've been half looking for an ebel with one of those 80s-tastic wave bracelets. It seems not only beautiful, but ultra-comfortable! But this chrono is 🔥. Enjoy! 🍻

Thank you, Danilo. Stellar indeed ✨

Thanks, Tony! It's really something special when it gets out into the sunlight.

Oooh! Looking quite nice on that engineer style bracelet, Tom! Is it comfortable? Does it matter when it looks this good 😁. Enjoy it 🍻

Thank you, Sir. Appreciate it!

I haven't had any real issues so far. It doesn't hack, so I can't set it precisely. It seems to keep time quite well (it always seems to be about on target at the end of the day). Winding is a little fiddley with the tiny crown, and setting the time doesn't feel extra solid (maybe also due to the tiny crown).

But it's pretty 😁

commented on Do you love chronograph dials - but hate the ugly pushers that come with them? ·

Can't say I'm in the same camp. I love the look, and think the pushers on a watch like the Hamilton or my Hanhart are part of the look

Image

Some chronos have more "integrated" pushers like the Bulova Lunar Pilot or Studio Underd0g which might offend your sensibilities less.

Image

However, if you like the look of the subdials, but are less interested in chronograph functionality, have you seen the triple calendar complication? It's not very common, but might do what you're looking for. There's the Maen Brooklyn which can give you that panda look

Image

Without big pushers on the side

Image

Or, harder to come by, the Kurono Calendrier Type 1

Image

Might be worth checking around to see if there are others that might do what you're looking for. Good luck!
