Another slight difference is that the Ebel is 11mm tall, while the 'Ombre is 11.55mm..the below pic shows them side by side.. For me, both fit equally comfortable beneath long shirt sleeves..both have signed crowns, but the Ebel's locks down..for me, open case backs are a plus, as I enjoy looking at the movements from time to time, even if they're run of the mill ETAs..having said that, the CW's nicely sculpted case and case back are standouts..I have to give the CW the edge in terms of executing the look of the case..a pic of their case backs is below.. The Ebel is powered by an ETA 2824-2..what grade it is, I can't be sure, but it is keeping good time so far and is pretty smooth to wind, giving that it is an ETA 2824..on the other hand(wrist?), the 'Ombre features a chronometer grade Sellita..it is also keeping excellent time and it is a little smoother to wind..I have to give the 'Ombre a small edge in this regard, although they are both pretty much the same movement..
So, for me, what is left for me to consider are intangibles..both are Limited Editions, but the CW has yet to sell out..the Ebel was launched around July of 2019(I think), but can already be found at 60-75% of its' retail price..the CW has an enthusiastic audience & the Ebel doesn't..while the Ebel has a 200m water resistance & the CW only 150mm, both are probably intended for desk diver duty as they come with leather straps..I really don't yet prefer one to the other, which means that they'll both get equal wrist time!!..here's one more comparo pic that I hope that you'll enjoy..
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...
