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.

Any insights?
