    Incoming Zenith 410

    I had been looking at replacing a Zenith in my collection and had been looking at the striking 10th and the 36,000. I personally find these watches interesting due to their technical achievements and they have a smart almost 'dress' watch look although obviously they aren't in the classic sense and my collection is mostly divers. Zenith have really come on in the last few years and if you've owned a more recent Zenith you will know their finish is stunning.

    On viewing at my local AD I came across the El Primero 410. Chronograph, with compete calendar and moonphase, I love all the complications together and it reminded me of the Doublematic which I also love. The 410 is based on the same 410 from the seventies and shares the same looks although its slightly larger at 42mm. At 42mm it wears about as large as it can go without looking to large. Some people may find the dial busy but it works for me and there is a lot worse out there. The dial is still functional for me despite all the dials and the grey dial is quite elegant. The 410 comes as a limited edition of 500 although you don't often see Zeniths in the wild. The El Primero has a 50 hour power reserve which is more than sufficient and you have a nice case back to see the movement.

    The only thing I do dislike at the moment is the clasp, its not easy to get close, but that might just be me. The strap is a very nice alligator leather with a rubber finish on the inside making it very comfortable.

    A few pictures...

    I hate you, even though I don't know you. Actually, I'm just jealous. That is a gorgeous watch. I could easily build a collection around Zenith.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse, while the optimist says it can.

    That is a wonderful watch, and is on my "futures" list. Just stunning. And I have the same strap on my Zenith Captain (although my strap is 20mm as opposed to yours, which is 21mm, as my case is 40mm as opposed to 42mm), and it's the nicest, most comfortable strap I've ever owned. I didn't realize the inside was rubber at first, because it was so soft and smooth to the touch. I actually thought it was a fine leather or something until I read it wasn't. Enjoy!

    Oh, and do you have a picture of the clasp? Just curious.
