Nice selection. The C65 Anthropocene is very nice too - if you can find one.

My choice would be the white AT.

These look rather tasty. :thumbup:

My only reservation is the 10 second sub-dial. :problem:

Maybe I could get used to it. If I could happily buy a watch without a seconds hand, why not one with one that doesn’t make it easy to time a minute…

Could sell a Rolex, buy a Zenith and use the rest of the proceeds for a couple of weeks holiday.

I think this is an EPIC announcement from Zenith. THE integrated steel sports watch available today in my opinion. > RO, Nautilus, Overseas, Laureato, Octo Finissimo et al. The 12 sided bezel to match-up the hour indices makes octagonals look strange all of a sudden. Love the dial. The 10 second sub-seconds is something different for sure and I'd like to see it on wrist, but 99% of the time the seconds hand is just telling me it's running anyway.

Personally I'm still swooning over a Santos but this one tells me I should try it before committing, I like it that much. BIG FAN. Make mine blue.

Just stunning, even with a date. The price unfortunately is stunning too!

I've become rather obsessed with the Bulova Lunar Pilot. I thought buying a 'Surfboard' would scratch that chronometer itch, it's just made it worse ...

Great watch! By far the most accurate watch I have ever owned.

Well I am still chasing the Cartier Santos as my "grail".
But yesterday I dropped in to the AD and Victor The Devil had this to tempt me. He knows what floats my boat for sure.
No pics will do this Glashutte Original Sixties justice. In hand, on the wrist, breathtakingly beautiful.
Flip it over and the bubble-back exhibition of the movement, well....all those gorgeous domes and it's like a classic 60's 911 on your wrist.

😁 Its a personal bugbear, I put up with dates on watches that I otherwise really admire but for me all watch designs are improved by the omission of a date. I do actually use a watch to tell the time (shock horror) but I never would use a watch for the date.
That said, I'd put up with the date for this one though and at least it has a creative treatment to the date window design rather than just being a hole in the dial. :D :lol:

Sorry but what an absolutely ridiculous comment - ‘Come on! We all have a phone don’t we’?! By that token, you can use your phone to see what time it is, so ‘why-o-WHY would you need a watch?’. Just as it may come as a surprise to a lot of people that we use a watch to see what time it is, it might come as a surprise that a lot of people who wear watches use them to actually see the date too - personal preference/requirements and all that.

You're right about the phone bit but I'm with Dwight on the general sentiment - I'd rather have the inconvenience of looking at my phone than that white date wheel which is a jarring distraction on an otherwise beautiful watch. For the price couldn't they have commissioned a blue wheel with lume-green or white numbers?

I would buy this today (the 5th :wink:) if it was available in the UK.
The Timex Waterbury Hodinkee Limited Edition.
Simple, clean design, just what I like.
