    Glashutte Pano Lunar or Zenith Elite Moonphase - Which One???

    Assuming relative same price - Which one would you choose, and why? This is a toughie

    Oh and just to throw in another consideration: Glashutte is possibly New Old Stock (potentially tried on / floor model) and the Zenith would be factory fresh. Thanks for your thoughts!

    It doesnt help that I was in a local AD this weekend and tried on a Glashutte. It was the floor model and was all scratched and dinged up! Yikes! So the Glashutte I am considering is located at another AD. But I need to get the specifics regarding its condition.

    Thanks! Would your answer change if the Glashutte was factory fresh?

    Zenith. The dial on the GO is off-centre. Yuck.

    No, and to be fair, I don't know much about the "guts" of either. My reaction was based soley on looks: I like the look of the Zenith more, and that was the basis for my suggestion.

    I almost wish I hadn't written it, as it was a knee-jerk reaction. This opinion could change, if I were to refine my understanding of what each has to offer.

    However, it would take a lot to change my opinion enough to make me wear the Glashutte over the Zenith.

    Hobson's choice, to be sure... Good luck!

    Best regards,
    Wallace

    I would go with the GO - the layout is unique. The dial is offset, but the whole package is still very well balanced.

    It's a hard choice. Condition would certainly play a factor...

    Agreed, I think the offset dial is a differentiator - and makes it unique.

    Definately. Hopefully I'll know more tomorrow.

    The GO is wider & thicker. I just had the Panomatic Lunar on my wrist and really liked it. I know the PanoReserve that I really want is a little thinner so I may end up with that. that Zenith is sweet too and I have the Reserve de Marche version on my short list against the PanoReserve. GO makes a hellaciously nice watch.
