    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.

    Dang, y'all are some serious Rolex and Omega folks. Very nice collection! Feel free to stop by the thread any time you wish! Thanks a bunch for sharing.

    Also, that is one serious looking winder.

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