Thread: Incoming: Ebel Classic Hexagon Regulateur

  1. #1

    Incoming: Ebel Classic Hexagon Regulateur

    Seller photo.

    Delivery expected Monday.

    It's huge, it's (kinda) retro, it inspires comment from 20 paces or 20 inches.

    It may be "too big" for me (45mm) - but, what the $%^&*( - I think it will work. If I can wear the Zenith Laco Aviator, I can wear this.

    Must do something about the screws, though - I align the screws in my face- and switch-plates. A poll: radial, or tangential, or something else?

    It's really pretty. I don't think I would ever want to try a 45mm; but it works for many people with bigger wrists or gusto than I have. ( I have even stopped looking at most watches larger than 41mm, so I speak from a minority in modern times I think.) Regulators are always cool. Enjoy!
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    VERY nice, Kenneth! Such a well-balanced, uncluttered, dial, and clean case. Congratulations on the beautiful addition!

    I wouldn't try to align the screws at all, if it was my watch.

    That's pretty cool! I'd want the screw slots parallel with the curve all round, personally.

    ^^^ That. But if I were going to go for it....

    ...^^^ That. Anything other than radial would look awkward, and no better than how it already is.

    I have a soft spot for regulators, as people may recall, so I think it's cool. Too big for me, though. I think the screws are part of the character, I wouldn't worry about them.
