    Question Please Help with 2 Zenith Class El Primero 02.0500.400 - Box & Paper or None

    Hello Zenith enthusiasts,

    I am considering getting one of these Zenith Class El Primero 02.0500.400:

    # 1 - No paper and box. About $130 less than # 2.

    # 2 - With paper and box, but there's a visible crack on the minute hand lume, otherwise the watch appears to be in the same condition as # 1.

    I am leaning toward # 1 due to its minute hand lume being in better condition than # 2, because repairing the minute hand might cost more than what the paper and box are worth.

    In your opinion, which one is the better selection?

    Thank you!

    Clearly one. Box and paper is not that important. You can always buy a used box and paper can be obtained when u send ur watch in for zenith overhaul service.

    Ditto. If it was a COSC tested watch and you were missing the certificate on one but not the other, I might opine otherwise but in your case, the box is just going to sit in the drawer and can, if necessary, be replaced to add value if you are going to resell it.

    Thank you all for your advice! I went ahead with # 1. Received it today and it looks amazing! Have always wanted to get a chronograph with an El Primero movement.
