    Hi Mick, this is à truly amazing story, I think you could play à major part in THE future of watchmaking! It is very inspirational to see somebody as young as you accomplish something like this, if only more young guys and girls would show some of your determination, passion and focus.

    I'm proud to be Dutch, please keep up THE good work!

    Kind of stumbled into this thread, and what a discovery it was! Great description of a restoration, and highly inspirational.
    Perhaps, for the uninitiated, could you Mick, write something on why the El Primero is vastly superior in its time, and even
    up to now? Thanks,

    Read this. A must read for everyone interested in El Primero, Zenith or watches.

    Just read this again for the second time - probably my favourite thread I've seen on this site. And now you've started your own company - good for you!

    fantastic restoration -- and also it says quite a lot about Zenith -- they have always been one of my favorite companies, and are even more so now!
