Need help to choose

The zenith could be a daily driver but is not very versatile for dress occasions The JLC has a waitlist but could be both daily and dressy but more dressy The Bigeye could be a good choice for both daily and dress, but it's kind of thick and the lume is a bit too green for me. but overall it could be a strap monster.

If you can afford the Zenith then you can also afford another watch for dress occasions if you really believe anyone will ever notice the watch that you wear.

zenith does some things that…well I don’t love them. Something about that integrated bracelet shaped case without an integrated bracelet just rubs me wrong. 
 

The Longines is real nice, and I’d definitely consider it. 
 

The JLC though…well that’s a classic.

I wasn’t aware there was a wait list on the JLC. I haven’t shopped them in person, but they seem more or less available on line. 

·

They seem quite different in style, so I'm guessing that you'll know once you put them on your wrist. For me, if it was a dress watch I'd go for the JLC or for that money consider an Omega. If budget was an issue, I like the Longines heritage watches. If you want something meaty and technical, then I guess a Zenith comes into the mix, but so does the Speedy. Choices, choices. Good luck!

oh man~ it seems the vote is sliding towards the reverso🤣 zenith shadow was leading at first

I voted for the Big Eye as it’s more versatile. There’s no bad choices here though. Zenith is an amazing watch, as is the Reverso.

I don't really like any if them. If the reverso wasn't red it would be my pick. The Zenith can't be saved and the Longines has weird sub-dials. I know the size difference between them is on purpose but that doesn't mean it works 🫣

Hahahahaha!!! Definitely everyone have their own opinion

Voted for the Bigeye. I have one and it works for me for both casual or dress purposes. Love the asymmetry of the dial but so balanced. Would consider the JLC but could not justify the price. Not a fan of the Zenith though I respect its technical prowess. Something about the shape/design doesn't really do it for me.
