Maybe you know this story more accurately than my scrambled remembrance.
Ebel sells a movement they call "in house", an Ebel 137.
It's in this watch:
Now, the story about this movement is that it is the 1040, or 1341, heavily modified. I don't know if that is true and hoping you could enlighten me.
When I first heard this, my research about the Omega/Lemania movement compared to the Ebel 137 led me to doubt the story. It just seemed too altered and too thin.
Understandably, Ebel is not forthcoming on the subject.
