Question about Ebel 1911 9080241 wristwatch
Let me tell you that the ebel 1911 chrono has the ebel calibre 137, based on Zenith El Primero 400, which beats at 36600 bph. Most watches beat at 21600 bph or 28800 bph. Zenith EL Primero is the one which more beats in the watch world and its truly a gem. You should have of course sent it out to servicing 3 years ago. Watches like this suffer more than other mechanical watches. I am not surprised that they asked 560 usd for a repairing service. Even lower automatic chrono watches like the hamilton or tissot chronos with eta 7750 do have expensive servicing too, about 250 usd.. Read more about watch servicing and you will know more about your watches care. Dont you replace your car tires after some miles? Why dont you service your watch then? Best Regards Manuel

Unfortunately watch service is often calculated based on the value of the watch, as insurance, and quality/cost of materials and spares and tools are factors. With the correct lubricant there should be no reason why a quality watch should need that particular job done so regularly, but a 4/5-yearly service is not a bad idea at all, as most problems with this sort of watch can be avoided with regular maintenance. Hope this helps :)
