    Seeking advice for *final watch purchase

    Hi all the guru's out there.. I'm currently considering between longines heritage 1973 column wheel Chrono and zenith el primero 38mm.
    I know guys, they are not on the same level in terms of price point.
    Please let me know which do you prefer.

    Current watch that I have is
    squale 30 atmos ceramic gmt
    Omega smpc blue dial
    Steinhart ocean 500 titanium
    Ball engineer ii pioneer

    Definitely Zenith - For me it is one of the all-time classics, both in terms of history and design ...

    Ease up on the melodramatics, dude. You have a sum total of 4 posts and then start a thread about a "final purchase" and this is the burning question?!

    Obviously, the Zenith has the storied past and the tradition, but I actually like the Longines chrono in this matchup for its better dial readability and for its less common pin-cushion case even if its movement is more pedestrian. I think the 40mm size works a little better as well.

    You don't have a Rolex or a GrandSeiko.
    You can't retire yet.
    Also, Zenith.

    Yes sir, would like to stop buying watches. wife is complaining.. threatening to be exact. I'm afraid watches will be heading to pawn shop one day if I keep buying. To her all looks the same, why buy so many. Haha

    Thanks for all the feedback, I like longines bit more(unique case and dial), but after visiting zenith boutique yesterday checking on grey and silver dial model, my love on longines 1973 change. To make it worse sales rep poison me with the El primero open dial, wow!
    Now comes the money part,
    Grey dial on bracelet usd $7138
    Open dial on strap usd $9373
    Price above are after quoted by boutique, is the price reasonable? Or shops online?
