Dangerous to ask. But well ...

I like the black case and strap as well as the movement. I don't like the shape of the case.
It reminds me of…

the AP ROO End of Days with its general shape and how the strap inserts. I like it a lot actually, because it distinguishes itself from the other El Primero pieces in the line.👍🏽

Thanks guys. It’s funny, the black case

seems to be a bit polarizing here, and I can see why. I guess some like the “military” vibe more than others..? In any case thank you very much for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
The Force is strong with this one.

Clearly legible, functional, and the more I look at it the more I warm to the dark elements. Listen to your head and heart. Purchase what you like, what makes you smile, that’s all that matters.
Haha, well put.

Funny as I hadn’t thought of the Darth Vader vibe but now that you’ve alluded to it I like it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
I know that mood

For me it is a sign the watch is not enough to go for.
Thanks for chiming in!

Yeah, I know what you mean here, but that being said I keep thinking about it. But, to your point, I haven’t pulled the trigger so…
Yes, I see where you’re coming from.

I also tried the steel version and the material plays very well with the angled case; it has a vintage vibe that the matte black titanium does not. Thanks for your thoughts!

No hesitation there!

Thanks… jury’s still out but I’m getting close. Appreciate your opinion (and push…😁?).
Ok, so you asked for our opinion
By: Larrykelley11 : March 11th, 2023-17:18
The case shape is not my cup of tea, it has a modern vibe but the pushers seem old school to me. The matte finish does not work for me and the sub registers seem too simple. I don’t like it, then again I didn’t like the AO Royal Oak when I first saw it ba...
Yes, I saw this one on the Zenith website.

Not sure how I feel about the multi-colored dial. But I understand it’s no longer available, so my assessment is perhaps a moot point. Thank you for taking the time to post this, much appreciated.
I’m still on the fence.

I was supposed to go back over the weekend but got busy doing other stuff. One detail I’m not sold on is the omission of a minute track. But I still might get it. I hope your friend enjoys the new watch!
The only nit I had with this EP . . .
By: Dr No : March 14th, 2023-21:32
. . . is the absence of minute markers. The aesthetic is admirable, but if an El Primero is essentially a tool movement, it's difficult to come around to what is essentially a dress implementation. Inset grooved minute markers would've been interesting, a...
I have come to agree with your assessment.
By: RabidManatee : March 14th, 2023-22:03
And have decided not to pick this one up. Nitpicky? Perhaps. But I can’t unsee the lack of minute markers, and as you state this watch should be about precision.
