    New (to me) El Primero

    I've wanted for years an El Primero but only last week I was able to buy one in pretty good condition (full set) and it's also I model I have loved for years.

    Here are a few picks of it:

    I feel like this line was released during a time when Franck Muller and their large numerals first became popular. I like the square Port Royal line personally, but to each their own. I also like the black and silver colour scheme on this version. Congratulations!

    From what little I can see, it seems to have a Cal. 400Z (rather than a Cal. 400) so it ought to be one of the last of these made (around 1999-2000). Are the numerals luminous or are there only the four lume dots at 3:00, 6:00, 9:00, 12:00 on the dial?

    You are right, it'a a 400Z. And yes, only the small dots and hands are luminous.
