New Zenith

New pre loved Zenith El Primero 42mm in grey. Watch came with everything, including some factory warranty and in perfect condition. Thanks B Clissold!

Always admired the traditional tri color but loving the grey

How difficult is it to read the sub dials with those overlaps?

I don’t find it difficult at all to read! There is definite contrast

I was referring to the lack of visible graduations on two of the sub dials Mike.

The “deal breaker” for those who use the chronograph. But it is an achingly beautiful execution otherwise, a fantastic build, and an amazing history. You are certain to enjoy it!

Yes, from a pure practicality standpoint the overlapping sub dials can be an issue. But the sheer beauty of the watch in my opinion is hard to not love.
