    Sadly your last images aren’t loading for me either.

    Just read the Hoodinkee article. I admire the clean look, but I have to say I prefer the models with colour. I’m wearing my tricolour right now and love it, especially with the red seconds hand. Also, I find the date function useful. In any case, to each their own and congrats on your new Zenith!

    I find the watch looks best in this low light lume shot, probably because it increases the contrast and ads detail.

    On the wrist! I'm usually a fan of 40-45mm watches, but this wears nicely (although small) at 38mm

    I just got mine also. Another interesting thing about the piece is that it doesn't have nearly as much high polish as the standard 38mm El Primero. The case side, case back, even the two chrono pushers, are brushed finish all around. An enormous improvement, to my eyes, and one that makes me wish they used more brushed finishing on standard production El Primero 38mm models. The removal of the 4:30 date window was also very welcome and gives the dial a more balanced look.

    As the Hodinkee article explains, you can see that the design was intended to play off the design language of popular high-tech products, with the use of clean lines and simple colors (e.g. white, matte greys, etc). I've seen and bought a number of limited edition El Primero models, and this is probably the best executed Zenith LE I've ever held. The strap is also very unique and suits the watch (and theme) well.

    I love what they did with this new design, I think this will become very collectible over time. Big fan of the brushed pushers and case sides, as well as the no-date. Not sure how I feel about the gray on white though, I do think they could have gone just a tad darker on the gray and still achieved the aesthetic while improving the legibility, but overall this is a spectacular watch. If only did they a tri-color with no-date and the brushed surfaces...

    Love it! Glad to see someone else received one!

    The strap is one of my favorite elements of the watch. It looks best in the sunlight, the early morning or evening hours make the dial somewhat grey-out.
