Probably my favourite of the recent CWs!

This! An El Primero has been a ‘grail’ of mine for years and I recently discovered this version from 2016, although I’d prefer to see it on Zeniths black rubber strap :cuinlove:

Paul from the position of the date wheel I think it is the bigger version, not the 38.

Yep, it’s 42mm. The Cotes Geneve stripes on the dial just take it into the ‘something different’ category for me so I could fulfil grail and different in one watch :D

I prefer the pale dial version, and I like the 3 tones of blue special edition. I checked the prices on chrono24 a while back, and they seem more expensive now.

There's a nice variant on eBay at the moment. Black dial with 3 white subdials, in a black ceramic case. 2018, but listed as unused.

The 3 shades of blue is the A386 Revival I think? Fantastic looking watch. To be honest I don’t think there’s an El Primero that I don’t like the look of but this one from 2016 with the striped looking dial just steps it away a little for me. Watch this space! :D

I tried this one on when I bought my El Primero from Owen Robinson in Leeds. This is the El Primero classic cars model but I found the Geneva stripes a bit too much and preferred the plain silver dial version. Still a great looking watch though.

Now the Formex Essence 39 is pre-ordered and underway for Feb, which had been the watch I'd been dreaming about, I'm looking around for people to "blame"....

Mulling over these two. They are in very different price points. Do I slim the collection down a little and go for the real thing or buy the homage?ImageImage
