I agree that while not explicitly stated, many of us here have researched a particular watch for hours including listings, articles, and video reviews to the point where we are certain it is the next “incoming!” But when you actually see it and try it on your wrist, something about it just doesn’t work.

The 38mm Zenith Tri-color chronograph had the smaller size I like along with its iconic history and movement. It looks fantastic in pictures but when I tried it on it just didn’t sing to me. Luckily I waited to try it on before just buying it.
