Basically, it's a 40.5mm Spring Drive housed in titanium(as well as the bracelet/clasp)..the 9R65 movement has a 72 hr. power reserve and s/b accurate in the realm of +-15 seconds per month..
The big selling point of this baby is its' nicely textured grey colored dial..supposedly inspired by Japan's snow filled winter skies, I will say that it's overall appearance is a little more 'subdued' in comparison to it's 'Spring' stablemate(from the pics that I've seen of both together)..here's a couple of quick pics that I've taken of it.. It also makes for an interesting comparison to my GS SBGA387..aside from the difference in dial color, the SBGA387 has a bezel and the case & bracelet are constructed from SS..also, the case construction is slightly different..here's a pic of them side by side.. Now, if only the 'birch' GS can be found at a good price point!!..
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...
