    Zenith El Primero Grande Date vs Glashutte Original PanoMaticLunar

    I am torn between these two watches...

    I like the two-tone gold/steel, both are around the same price mark but GO only steel versions are available.

    Zenith works out at $10500 and GO at $9200 (UK rates converted, I am sure US prices are cheaper).

    My biggest worry is the Zenith looses value quite heavily and be a nightmare if I ever had to sell it... I am not sure if GO is any better in that respect.

    I love the Zenith dial and GO's movement/caseback is just amazing. If I had the cash, I would buy both but only one can prevail.

    Just wondering what you guys think... what would you choose, bearing in mind - I intend to sell/trade after a while.

    They are both not going to hold its value very well. Maybe look for preowned which I believe is not easy to find. I've handled the GO and I'm impressed by the quality and the look of the movement but I haven't seen the zenith in person. I think both look great and I'm leaning more towards the GO

    Yes... Lange 1 is the one I really wanted but GO is the closest I could settle for.

    I think the GO might be easier to sell in the future if you decided to get rid of it. Most people don't like two tone watches. Best you can do is take your time and wait for a preowned to surface as these are not common watches

    If you intend to sell or trade it in a few years, I'd recommend buying them used like dr3ws said above. That way you can get a crack at both of them!
    The GO is my preference. I'm not a big fan of two-tone cases or the skelontonized movement on the Zenith.

    I am Zenith guy so I recommend Zenith. But IMO this model looks much better in black. And anyway it's pretty big.

    Regarding resale, in my experience Zenith holds it's value quite well.

    The GO. I’m not a fan of open hearts at all
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    Both are beautiful watches. Both wear rather large. In my experience - on the wrist - Zenith looks better and the open-heart can be very very attractive in person. I've met few people with Zenith Chronomaster open at various watch events, and every single time - the watch catches your eye and looks stunning (especially if your wrist is big enough to pull it off)
    Open heart is not for everybody though. Try it on in person to compare fairly.

    PS. Although you are correct that Zenith price may drop after purchase, I propose that it's crazy to pay MSRP. Once AD discounted price (or even GM price) is used - Zenith has some of the best watches for $ in this quality range.

    you said you prefer the dial of the zenith.... to me that would answer that question because you spend a lot more time looking at the front of the watch then the back of the watch. I wouldn't buy a watch just because I like the movement. To me being able to see the beautiful movement is an added bonus but is not the main attraction. I have owned a few Zenith open models and I love seeing the beating heart. I have also owned a couple GO's and they are phenomenal watches. Best of luck with your decision and let us know what you end up with!
