Very happy for you, my friend! If I had to get my first Zenith, it would be a S 58 or this one. Enjoy! Best, Nicolas.
Grazi, Nico! . . .
. . . the New Vintage 1969 captured my imagination when it was introduced in '09, and my affection a year later when it arrived in Los Angeles. Now, it's mine ;-) . . .
Looking good! May we see a wrist shot? Give her a good life! Best Blomman
Thank you, Damian . . .
. . . this is my first new watch in just over three years, and it was a long time comin' ;-) . . .
you made the right choice
between this one and the Striking 10th IMO. I predict you will find this far more versatile than you anticipate, and anyway it is the more "Zenith-y" of the two!
It really was a tough call, Lou . . .
. . . and it came down to realizing I'd be looking for reasons to wear the Striking 10th. Better a watch you'd want to wear often than one for special occasions . . .
Nice one, Art!
It's a beaut! Congrats. Looking forward to seeing and learning more about it.
After going . . .
. . . "chrono-less" for years, Richard, it's a welcome addition to my collection . . .
Congratulations, Art ...
Very pleased you chose this piece. We looked at a few Zenith's together and this watch is really 'you'. Look forward to the wrist shots and your experiences with it. Andrew
Art, wow, may I congratulate you
for this excellent choice! It's a timeless beauty. I think it is a very worthy addition to your tasteful collection of watches. Enjoy your El Primero! Thanks, Valentin
No arguments here, Valentin, it is . . .
. . . an attractive watch, all the more so as it combines two classic Zenith elements - the dial of the A 386 and the Zenith signature cushion case - for the first time. An hommage to a watch that never was, but easily could have been . . . cordially, Art
Merci, Jerome . . .
. . . your words speak volumes. There are a few recent Zeniths that beckoned, but this one captured my attention at first glance, and affection the moment I tried it on. Most cordially, Art
Thanks, Stefan . . .
. . . this will be the watch that gets the call for shooting pool, attending sports car races, and hanging out with friends . . .
A hearty congrats.
I can so totally understand your choice, even though I was leaning towards the Striking 10. I must say the dial design and layout is superb, I do not find it crowded at all, and cushion case...haven't had one for a long time. Look forward to your ownershi...
A real beauty, wear it in health!
Congratulations, that is a truly handsome watch! My favorite modern Zenith as well, seems to capture many of the characteristics that made the original designs so charming.
Coincidentally, I recently tried on . . .
. . . one of the original El Primero cushion cases . . . . . . which is a little smaller than the New Vintage, and unusually, didn't sit quite as well on my wrist....
Looks like a winner to me! I was definitely into this watch once I saw it in person! Cheers, Daos
I do recall it...
...and admit to being transfixed by the watch once I saw it in person! Enjoy it! Cheers, Daos
How did I miss this?
Belated Congrats Art on your new Zenith! Looks fantastic on your wrist. Can't wait to see it in person soon. Regards, ED-209
No worries, Ed! Let's just say . . .
. . . there are more pressing matters that take up your attention, like analyzing balance sheets of billion-dollar corporations and tending to ATM, and leave it at that ;-) . . .
Really looks good on your wrist!
I had my doubts when I saw it in the store. But then again, I never tried it on. It really goes to show that you really need to try a watch on before dismissing it. I thought it was too big. But it looks just right on your wrist. Very beautiful watch! Con...
It really does feel . . .
. . . "just right" on my wrist, Echi. It's due in large measure to the cushion case design that conveys a sense of subliminal heft while retaining sensible dimensions . . . cordially, Art
This Zenith is a looker I saw the title changed. Are you relinquishing your previous duty at GO? Best Tyler
Looks perfect on your wrist and has all the characteristics you would want in a classic! Best fernando
Thanks, fernando . . .
. . . I knew from the moment images circulated that it was well-suited for my wrist, and fit the sports-watch niche that badly needed to be filled . . . cordially, Art
Warm congratulations, and I look forward ti more images! Best regards, Tony
A bit late...
..OK...maybe a lot late :-( Congrats Art ! I LOVE your new Zenith, its a must have for me at some point in the near future. (maybe after my SS GO PML XL) That Beauty look so good on you Best Drew
Wow - that is a beauty!!
Congratulations on this one Art! I am sorry for being so late but I hope that you agree that sincere compliments cannot be untimely. I just enjoyed your very honest reply to Marcus on how you went back and forth between the striking 10th and this one. Lol...
