The Ennebi Fondale is tool watch, first and foremost. It is available in ref. 9640, 9650, and 9660-100. Ennebi used a micro-peening titanium grade 5 case for ref. 9640 and 9650. The ref 9660-100 comes with a micro-peening titanium grade 5 case with stainless stell caseback.

The ref. 9640 is 22mm at the lugs, while the ref. 9650 and 9660-100 are both 24mm at the lugs. Many prefer the latter 2 choices due to the fact that they allow for a wider strap size.
