I'll post some pics when I get a chance but my collection is: Tissot Le Locle; Oris XXL chrono; Oris Miles chrono; Tag Monaco chrono; Panerai 111; and IWC Portuguese.

Looking to add a Daytona and/or Zenith Chronomaster. The Daytona is well discussed but does anyone have any thoughts on the Zenith Chronomaster? I have a chance to get one at a pretty good price. Thanks.

:rotflmao:  Loved that comment Mimo.  It put a huge smile on my face.  You know me too well...a mix of sticks, Romans, and Arabic numerals = Epic Failure (even on a real watch) !!!!

For me it depends on the watch, whether the numerals are applied or printed, and font used.

I guess my question is what are you looking to find out about Zenith?  Were you looking for something sporty or dressy?  Zenith makes a very good quality product.  For several years roughly 1989-2000 Rolex used Zenith's El Primero movements, made significant changes to the movement and then used them in their Daytonas (the current Daytona's use and in house movement) .  I like some of the Zeniths and you can usually get them at a significant discount.  The Chronomaster is a dressier looking chronograph than a Daytona, and gives you a moon phase and date.  However, I find the Chronomaster's dial a bit busy and prefer some of their other models, particularly some of their vintage designs from the 70s.  If given a choice between a Daytona and a Chronomaster, I would choose the Daytona.   The Chronomaster just isn't my taste, but that's purely subjective.  If you are considering one of the open dial Chronomasters then IMHO its not contest Daytona all the way.  I'm not a fan of their partially open dial watches.  I don't need a very dressy watch all that often, so something that's a bit sporty, but which I can still wear with a suit would probably get more wrist time from me.  Both have great movements, it just depends what you are looking for.  If you like both the Daytona and the Chronomaster both are different enough that you could own each and it would not be redundant.

yes, that is a better way to say it. i meant in a vacuum i am fine with either one as long as its used will within the context of the dial as a whole. cheers.gif

Very nice Steel!  Looks like you are driving a VW?  Steering where and mirror defrosters are a give away.  If it is an Audi, strike it up to VAG using similar parts on all of their cars now.

I'm a huge fan of the AP RO.  Its definitely one of the best watch purchases I've made.  You won't be disappointed!
