    I was hoping for some expert opinions on brand and quality.

    Note: I already have a Zenith Defy that I never wear...

    Thanks in advance for all your help!

    Ive owned that Pasha, and its very nice. Although with age I have noticed the dials tend to discolor from the center. The Pasha design is very love it or hate it, and if you love it and the design speaks to you, then go for it. The Zenith doesnt do much for me. I think the power reserve is in an odd place, and JLC did this complication better.

    Have you considered a JLC Réserve de Marche?

    I vote for neither, as the dials are busy for my taste. If I had to pick, I would go for the Pasha, as it is a Genta design. Also, I like the guilloche on it better.

    Thanks all for your help! After much considering - and your collective feedback, I decided on the Pasha. I have had it for about a week now and I absolutely love it!
