Hello awesome folk,
Yes, I have gone quiet in the past weeks - many changes on the work front, busy times, not to bore you too much...
I catch myself obsessing over my ultimo-primo-uber-dress watch and history tells me that talking to WUS fellow members is good, adds options, broadens horizons, etc.
WUS has always helped me, and I wish to compare notes with you on the Dress Watch Paradigm (queue in music from The Big Bang Theory)...
So, here's the deal - in stubborn but irrevocable steps I am moving closer to buying my dress grail, the Zenith Elite Ultra Thin.
To date, I have been unable to find anything which can challenge it against those combined criteria:
- 40 mm
- thin bezel
- classic, clean dress
- in-house movement
- under $3,000 BNIB + factory warranty/papers
I want to make sure that I explore as much alternatives. If none measure up, fine - the Zenith is awesome enough. If there are worthy contenders however, I want to know about them.
So, let's share notes - Germans, Japanese, Swiss, steel or not, BNIB or vintage NOS, whatever dress watches you have on short list in your little black books matching or beating above criteria, please share them.
Here is my current yardstick:
