    2010 Zenith catalog.

    The Zenith watch catalog for 2010 is available on the Zenith website. Here's the link ...

    http://www.zenith-watches.com/wdata/...D_100723_2.pdf

    I posted it here since I expect many at the Zenith sub-forum already know this (and have downloaded it as well). If this is the inappropriate sub-forum to post this, mods are welcome to move/delete the same. As to the question of availability of these models, your guess is as good as mine ...

    I'm interested in that Elite vintage JFK model. Did Kennedy wear a Zenith as well as his well-touted Omega? If so I'd love to see what they run.

    Also that ultra-thin looks stunning. If I were wealthy I would deeply torn between that and the JLC ultra thin. As it is I've dodged that particular land-mine.

    Re: 2010 Zenith catalog.

    I really like the ultra-thin ... very simple and extremely elegant.

    One thing I don't like about the new 36,000 vph models is that the 12 hour chrono counter is in the foreground rather than the background (as it was in earlier El Primeros with overlapping sub-dials). This reduces legibility a little, since the second and minute counters are a bit more important than the hour counter.

    Another little complaint I have is that they should have kept the Elites at 38mm (instead of 40mm) and the El Primeros at 40mm (instead of 42mm). The Elite is a thin movement and a smaller dia case would do nicely (perhaps they wanted to accentuate the thinness with the larger dia case). The El Primero is thin as well (for an auto chrono movement), and looks very nice in 38mm to 40mm cases.

    Both Elite and El Primero movements are not very large in dia., and hence there is plenty of "dead space" that can be observed from the see through casebacks.

    There is something about that retrotimer that really appeals to me, the rest of the el primero line isnt too shabby either.

    Right on, reverend. I like these models plenty, but so far have not quite been able to pull the trigger (that 36000VPH Charles Vermot edition is at the top of my list). The enlargement of the El Primero powered pieces does not look optimal to my eye either, and creates an aesthetic hitch in that the subdials, which must remain centered on the existing posts begin to look crowded. Zenith tried to fill in the space a bit by enlarging subdial diameter, but it makes the overlap issue more acute. I agree that 40mm for El P and 38mm for Elite would have been better. For the record, the original El Primeros were 38mm.

    On the other hand, maybe I am just habituated by all the vintage ones. I'd be interested in hearing what others think.

    Below is a comparison of an original EL P (top) and the new 1/10th of a Second (bottom - pic from Guy67 of the french Zenith forum - helluva photographer).

    Re: 2010 Zenith catalog.

    Thanks for the link. Last I went looking for Zenith's lineup I only found one of those "virtual catalog" Flash-based paginated interfaces and therefore navigated away quickly.

    There's a lot to like in the lineup. My choice would be the throwback chrono:
