    Like that a lot! Have a thing for El Primeros, though prefer them with two registers. This one is well up there on the "I want" list. Oops, I mean the "I need" list ...

    Great watch. Personally I wish the dials were just a bit farther apart but still this zenith is aces.

    Although I'm not a huge NATO fan I like the blue and orange Dievas strap Newcomer recommended. That Omega is neat in a very retro way and that strap might go with its vintage feel Here's a pic of it on a racing strap as suggested by Apropos.

    Agreed on the spacing. Wider is better, if you can get it right.

    That's the issue when you are using a movement designed in 1969 to fit a chronograph with a 38mm case and trying to make it work in a much larger contemporary case size. The subdials end up looking squished into the middle of what is a much larger dial.

    Any of the Omega Lemania 5100 based auto chronos are Permanently Certified Cool. I gotta get one.

    I think that Seamaster could look good on a NATO. There's something about those 60s/70s vintage chronos that just suits.

    Great watch...love it on the mesh bracelet. Just curious the black ring around the dial, does it actually get thicker from say the 4 O'clock marker to the 10 o'clock marker, or is that just an optical illusion caused by the watch crystal and angle of the photo?
    I like the vintage racing strap idea as suggested by Apropos.
    Not sure I like the blue with it, but that's just me. Maybe with a different color or a classic NATO.

    That's a great looking strap, do you have a source for it? The only perlon straps I can get a hold of are the black NATO straps. And I have a tendency to go through those, as they stretch and then you have to cut and cauterize and they stretch again and then you have to cut cauterize etc.
