    Incoming: Zenith El Primero Tri-color 38mm! (w/pics)

    I've spent the better part of a year debating what my next watch should be, and concluded that I definitely want something on the smaller side, as my last purchase (a 5-digit Sub) was about as large as my wrist can handle. I considered a whole range of watches including the Blancpain Leman Flyback, Speedy Reduced, Cartier Santos, and I kept coming back to this one: Zenith El Primero Tricolor. Saw Jaqesq's for sale and pulled the trigger. Glad I did! What really surprised me was how terrific the bracelet is. I have a flat, bony 6.3" wrist so finding a bracelet that conforms to it is quite the challenge, and this one does it in spades. Incredibly well made, with some very nice details such as perlage on the inside of the clasp. It is also keeping excellent time, 1-2 sec per day (closer to 1). On to pics:

    Congrats, a beautiful watch. I have the Original 1969 version on my list as well and will likely buy it next year. Personally think this watch looks best on a brown crocodile strap. A real classic!
