    Nomos Zurich date v Zenith Dualtime

    Hello more knowledgeable people!

    Just looking for a bit of advice/opinion.

    I have been looking at the 2 mentioned watches. They would fill a similar gap in my fledging collection ( similar price too ) and was just wondering which people thought was the more desirable. Think I have a slight leaning towards the Nomos but....
    Apologies if this is a very basic question to many.

    Thanks for your time

    I'm very much biased towards Nomos and don't, personally, care for the Zenith watches with the sub-second dial at 9 o'clock. The real question is: Do you want the 24 hour hand?

    They are completely different watches. I am partial to the Zurich but prefer the non-date. One for the cleaner dial. The date appears as an afterthought. Two for the fact that it does not have a quick-set function.

    Yes the lack of a quickset is a pain. Interesting: without the date though, I think the subdial sits a little high on the face but the date then justifies it in my opinion. But I will have another ponder on it!
    No, I guess I don't especially need the dualtime (but in the days of the internet, who honestly does?) Thing is, I grew up with my Grandad wearing Zeniths so guess I have an irrational softspot for them, but I suppose I know deep down that the Nomos looks the more elegant to me.

    The Zenith to get is an El Primero chronograph. Any one, new or used.

    BIG BIG SMILES! I was lucky enough to be given a Zenith El Primero 36'000 VpH 03.2041.400/51.C496

    by a doting (wealthy) girlfriend but sometimes you really can't justify a blue dial, hence the reason for my post
    ( i guess I could look at Stowa also, but my favourite is the 1938 which is too chunky for formal situations)

    Thanks for you advice.... much appreciated and needed!

    I think we should just rank all watch brands first, before making a determination in this particular case...

    Begin!

    I'm a huge Nomos fan, but the Zenith is just awesome. I'd go Zenith.
