What Can you say about this Beauty!?
The watch itself retails at around 60k HKD. What does it offer you? A definitely very classic and un-zenith looks.
It has a slightly domed crystal, very nice curves and extended lugs. It has a bright silver sunburst dial with two registers displaying the running seconds and the 30-minute counter. Most importantly, it has no date aperture! A classic touch for a retro-feeling chronograph.
The hands are leaf-shaped. This watch is all about simplicity and elegance. The case is thin and slim but full of beautifully designed curves. It is 11mm tall. The rectangular pushers are very well integrated. One of the features I dislike on chronographs is their round pushers.
They look awkward on the otherwise beautiful curves of a watch, be it a Rolex Daytona or an Omega Speedmaster. Screw-down pushers look better but rectangular pushers are the best. They will not destroy the shape of the watch.
The movement for the watch is the famous Zenith El Primero which can be seen through the display case back. I would hope that the movement can be better polished and decorated but at this price point, I do not want to ask for too much.
The watch is 42mm wide and it comes with a black alligator strap and a clasp. I think Zenith has done a really good job on this piece.
So, what do you get by paying around 4xk HKD after discounts? An understated, elegant, simple, classic and vintage-feeling watch that can suit all occasions when you want to show off your jackets – instead of your watch.
