Ebel Sport Tropical Dial circa 1940’s


An unusual Ebel “Sport” military era vintage model 34mm diameter case circa 1940’s with very pleasing original black gilt print dial with radium 12/3/6/9 numbers and luminous pencil style hands. Featuring a stainless steel heavy snap back case signed  stamped Ebel, Waterproof, Shock Absorber, and Shockproof.

An unusual military style wristwatch in remarkable condition and free of corrosion or scratches. Powered by caliber 1080 manual wind movement with sweep center seconds. Recently serviced and left unpolished as acquired. Offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. On your choice of sporty leather or NATO style strap.

Our research informs us that Ebel produced watches for the British Military from 1939 to 1945. Though lacking specific military specifications or the familiar British Broad Arrow on the dial or case back, the caseback does includes 3 lines of numbers on the caseback. We presume this model was produced post WWII, and like other brands, featured military styling popular in the post war years.

We don’t come across many vintage Ebel watches. As a side note, Ebel was founded in 1911 in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland, the name derived from the first letters of the founders Eugène Blum and Alice Lévy (Eugène Blum Et Lévy)

Your purchase includes our popular signature Italian leather pouch, ideal for travel or storage, a $55.00 value.

NOTE: The too narrow used strap in the photo has been replaced by a proper 17mm wide new generic fine leather strap.
