I have been lusting after a 38mm Zenith El Primero in the traditional 1969 colours on a steel bracelet, for a long while. Well tonight I tried on one of these and I was smitten!

I also tried on one of these beauties:

Now I have two chronograph targets to chase!

Two separate categories too. White dial two subdial chrono and black dial three subdial chrono (or is it blue, hard to tell). Apart from funds, problem solved. :wink:

Haha! My categories are not quite that specific. Let's just say that they would fill the Blue Chrono slot (vacated by the Sinn 103 last year) and the White/Silver Chrono slot! Alongside the Omega Moonwatch they would comprise a nice Chrono trio. Just need to solve that funding problem first, which means they are just a pipe dream for now. :(

I really like them both but I'd do the El Primo first.

^^^ Agree. The Heuer is very nice, but the EP is on another level.

I don't like that Heuer at all, sub-dials are too close together. Ideally I want them apart like on the vintage Continental that Gary has. I am smitten with the Heuer Autavia reissue of this year though.

Hi Patrick, that's the one I've been chasing up to now, but on a steel bracelet. However, I have a weakness for blue dials and I really think the blue one tops it for me personally. Will have to construct a financial plan!

Got a sniff of a chance of acquiring a Daytona, so I think everything else will be on hold while we see if it can happen...
