1911 BTR Automatic GMT is a wristwatch by Ebel.

Twenty years after the introduction of the legendary line 1911 with its distinctive hexagonal case the "Architects of Time" presented in October 2006 the revised Ebel men's collection: 1911 BTR, a contemporary, purely mechanical and especially masculine watch series which draws attention to itself by a diameter extended to 44.5 mm and a larger bezel. The new version combines aesthetics and functionality: a seamless transition between case and bracelet, the distinctive pushers with their notched caps in polished/satin-finished stainless steel and the characteristic screw-in crown.

All watches of the series are equipped with exclusive, COSC-certified mechanical Ebel calibres developed, assembled and controlled in the Swiss studios of Ebel.

The GMT series offers the additional benefit of a second time zone in 24 hours mode.

Through the sapphire crystal caseback with the signature "Architects of Time" can be admired. It is provided with a compass-like weight segment.
