    What do you think about this one ... ?

    Personally, I think this Retrotimer would look great on a stainless steel bracelet.

    Of course, it might be tough to say something definitive before it is seen "in the flesh" ... renders are so "antiseptic", but I like the concept of the monopusher chrono.

    Looks cool. Awkward website though. That seems to be a theme among watch manufacturers.

    You know another theme I've noticed. Zenith love in the Public Forum of late. I've no issue with it, just an observation.

    It doesn't have enough subdials.

    great looking piece, but I agree the 1 subdial does seem strange

    Seiko 6139, arguably the first automatic chronograph (and a very iconic model) had just one subdial ... there have been others, too.

    Not a bad watch but I don't really feel the love for Zenith watches.

    I must admit, I've been mainly responsible for the Zenith love fest in here lately

    I think one of my biggest reasons for not feeling the love is, the Zenith's I like are out of my price range I've a bad case of Zenith envy. They make a beautiful timepiece and from what I have seen of their movements I like, but I don't think I would ever fork over the money for one of their watches. That is unless the price comes down substantially.

    If you can manage it, try and get some NOS El Primeros from the late '90s - early '00s. You can get some amazing deals on them, the problem is locating a good deal, they're quite rare.
