Thoughts on the Zenith Pilot

This piece has been "flying" around in my head lately. What are your thoughts on the watch and the El Primero movement?

My wrist is around 16cm/6.25" round and about 2" wide. I am wondering if you think it'd fit properly. Thanks

If I buy a Zenith pilot's watch I would want the El Primero Chrono movement. I have a 6.5 inch wrist I don't mind going 42mm with a 50mm lug to lug.

Also overpriced I would get something better for 8k.

My choices would be:

This would be pushing it at 43mm but is damn good looking:

Another 42mm

Also at 39mm The Breguet Type XX is a huge come up

Good point. The 1/10th second pace of the chrono hand is pretty cool.

Saw this watch back in March, I think it鈥檚 a great looking watch. But yes a little expensive.

At what price would you consider it reasonable?

I have only had zenith in hand once and when I did I was super impressed with their quality. They are definitely a step above most of their competitors in terms of finishing and things of the like. They are expensive but for a reason

Far too close to an Aquanaut for me, would stick to a chronograph from Zenith.

Haha. You got a point there.

I thought about this watch, but the long lug to lug killed the idea. I have small wrists too.
