Zenith El Primero A384 Revival

A faithful reproduction of the original A384, in the original 37mm size. Unfortunately too small for me but I love it otherwise. A non-limited release, about $8K.

I really like that. Perfect subdial placement. I could go without the date, but that's how it goes.

That post probably hung for 15+ seconds before showing up.

I love it but can’t do 37mm.
My AD had told me when he first found out a few months back and a deal can be had but the size just held me back

For better or worse all of the 50th Anniversary El Primeros are the same size as the originals. At least the Hodinkee readers won't bitch about the watch being too big for once ;)

Probably wouldn't be my first choice, but it looks good. Smaller case sizes are better for the El Primero movement.

Agreed, I keep hoping that Zenith will build a new version of the EP that is suitable for modem case sizes. But they seem content to put the smaller movement in bigger watches and kill the dial layout.

Check that out Andrew ! :o Incredible !!! ..You know was thinking about the size,
and how the case shape. Along with those pushers might push this beauty up to
almost 39-40mm.

Not that that is giant, but it looks as if could be larger than 37mm at the end of
the day. :) ..In any case, thanks so much for the news about it sir !

Like it on the strap. Hoping it's too small for me ;)

Lovely. The proportions are right, to me.

I’d rock it.

Scaled up to 39mm this would be perfect. Hot as is.
