    I'm not wearing it, but I spotted this gem in a museum in Baltiysk, Russia today. Sorry for the sideways picture. Tapatalk keeps flipping it.

    2) Honestly, in your opinion, are you giddy with the 38?
    3) your wrist size because proportion to your wrist looks perfect.

    I know this has been beaten to death, but why didn't they do a 40mm? I've even considered the new Movado Datron chrono cause it's 40mm, but not getting the Zenith movement defeats purpose.

    Thanks!

    Happy to help:
    1) brushed. I think current production are all brushed.
    2) giddy is the right word. Not only is 38 a good size for me, it's the perfect size for this watch, given the size of the original (a386), size of the movement, position of the chrono registers, date position, bezel thinness, lug shape, etc. it just ... works. I had a hard time choosing vs the 42, but I am 100% confident I made the right decision. It felt small at first but only because I was used to bigger watches.
    3) wrist is flat 6.5"

    I've come to realize that (a) nominal case size is less important that how a watch feels overall (dial size, color, lug length, height, etc) and (b) a watch's own internal proportions matter ... not just the proportionate size to your wrist. The 38mm nails it on both fronts.

    Fwiw, the crystal is more or less the same size as that of the 39.7mm Speedmaster FOIS, which (I think) is the same size as that of the 42mm moonwatch.

    Like you, I used to wish Zenith just made this watch in a 40mm. Not anymore. Try on both and decide, but I think you can't go wrong getting this watch in 38mm.

    For sake of comparison:

    38mm


    42mm

    I went with the 38mm guys, just FYI. I'd tried on a vintage Movado Datron HS360 with Zenith movement, and at 38mm and much more metal and less glass than the el Primero, I felt the edge to edge crystal and dial width on the 1969 zenith EP would wear larger than 38. Also couldn't get away from the vintage vibe I love. We'll see. Didn't have the time nor inclination to go to AD and try on just to order online. If it doesn't work, someone will get a decent but not fire sale deal on a flip! Thanks guys.
