You don’t need a heap of complications when a three hander is done right. That is beautiful, period!

^^^ Oh yes! What the pic doesn't capture is the subtlest of German silver and fine sunray. Sublime. The totality of this one was just breathtaking.

Really like both the Sixties and the Seventies collections, only seen 1 (a sixties) in the metal and just superb. Great watch to be dreaming of 👍
P.S. Have you seen the stunning blue, it looks so many different shades depending on the light.

I've only seen this one and the 2019 Annual with the orange "fire" textured dial. The 2020s with slightly purple blue sunray are all gone now but then there is the blue from the regular range. I'd like to see that one. Seventies is too big for my skinny wrist.

Really is testing my resolve about the Santos which remains fabulous and more versatile....price is almost identical.

I think it must be a real model- they show this wrist shot:

^^^ weird bracelet (I like them :)), but not integrated in the sense the term is normally used.

It’s the final edition of the Zenith X Lupin the third models.

It combines the dials of the 1st and 2nd editions.

Ideal for fans of Japanese Manga and Anime.

Real. But yes it is a mash up of the two previous editions. :shock:

^^^ Is there some explanation for the apparent day/night terminator that runs between 7 minutes and 37 minutes? Or the grey/gold running seconds?

My brain desires order and logic, and I’m afraid I would find that more of a nightmare than a daydream.

^^ it’s strange, but I’ve seen a watch dial divided black and white in a line through 12and 6. I found it discombobulating to look at, and quite clunky. But this division on a diagonal is completely pleasing to my eye! Apparently there were two previous models- one black dial, one white. This third model is a mash up of the two. What it’s got to do with Japanese manga I have no idea, but the website says there’s a connection....

maybe so the dividing line doesn't cut through one of the sub dials?
