I do see your point. But what if I don't have Asian wrists?
I was going to be polite and not mention it, but now it's out... *points and snickers*
They've had some really blah offerings in recent years, but I think last year was a breakout for them. They do lean heavily on the El Primero in the same sort of way Omega does with the Speedmaster.
But both the new El Primero Striking 10th and the new Pilot are beautiful watches, though I don't know if I would choose it over a Speedy when I decide to get a chronograph. I tried a S10th at my AD and its a very unique and beautiful complication to see. My wife didn't care for it so much, until I showed her the caseback.
If I had the extra money laying around, I would buy it yesterday.
...and now I realize you're all terrible people who keep forcing me to add to my list...
I like Zeniths more classic offerings like their dress watches or the chronograph in the top photo. Their El Primero movement, which I believe was a joint venture with Movado, was ground breaking as the first automatic chronograph movement. I find their modern sports watches too stylized and part of the "Look at me I can make a huge watch too, crowd."
I love AP's particularly the RO, and I owned one for about 6 years back in the 1990s. I hope to pick up another at some point. I think the ROO is a handsome watch, I really like the bracelet for them. My main complaint about AP is that they make too many limited editions that are really all the same watch with different color dials. I would prefer it when they made limited editions they made made changes that are more substantial than just dial colors, such as using interesting case matterials, different bezel screws or unusual pushers like those found on the Montoya Edition, that was a cool watch! Still great watches and nice to see some RO/ ROO photos here.
