Lovely movement! I think the Ebel 137/Le Modulor uses the same base Lemania caliber (1340/1350, if I'm not mistaken?). The movement in the Breguet probably has a much nicer finish though, in addition to the Flyback function (Lemania cal. 1372). Planning to get an E-type cal. 137 Ebel in a few months, that should be fun!

Actually, come to think of it the cal. 137 in the Ebel has a cam switching mechanism, are you sure the Breguet cal. 582 has a column wheel?

I own 2 chronos, but I actually use this one to time things:

I know it's not popular around here but it's the only one I own so I gotta give some love to the 7750

As much as I like the Poljot 3133 movement I gifted the watch to my father because it wasn't getting the wrist time it deserves.
It's a reliable movement, buttery smooth to wind and it's running within COSC specs for the past 2 years after a good tweaking from my watchmaker.

I love the looks of the Omega/Lemania 1863:



Here it is with a little friend:



I also really like the Lemania 5100 but they're not much to look at.

While I definitely LOVE the El Primero movement....it is difficult to not give this the nod as my favourite chrono movement in the collection.














Cheers,
Rob

What about the vintage Seiko 6138 or 6139 movements ?
It's also using the column wheel right ?
Column Wheel, Vertical Clutch, its like R35 GTR:-!
oh yeahm ROBUST. Thought about buying Tissot LMT Edition MOTO GP Valjoux but the way i see it (for the long Run), better get myself the legendary El primero :p
