    How ridiculous. Looked like a great watch (nice silver dial!) until I saw the size.

    Right!

    The Big Pilot is 46mm as standard. They have also made 48mm and 52mm versions. Anybody less than a full grown mountain gorilla need not apply!

    No, not yet. It's not the size, but the $10k plus price. I slap myself to wake up and remember to re-focus. Heuer only, remember the original passion! Oh, the temptations & diversions tho...

    Tim Mosso reviews the 2021 Zenith El Primero Sport. He notes that the watch wears closer to 40mm than the 41mm in the official specification.

    I like the dark dial variant more than the white dial one.

    40.5 to be exact ;) I like this watch TBH. This is a solid watch and the watch to get if you’re on the market for Zenith. I can see the bezel finishing closer to TAG Heuer’s which is great :thumbsup: and the 1/10th second countdown look great in motion!

    His watch of choice before Heuer?!
    (BTW, Jim Clark and Graham Hill are also famous for wearing the Navitimer.)

    Steve McQueen wasn’t a true Heuer fan but the Heuer Monaco was his most famous watch that matches his persona ;) Seppi probably had other “Swiss” watches as well but because these two are born-to-race, die-to-race guys, Heuer automatically “connects” to them :thumbsup:

    And we all know how TAG Heuer loves this media hype - marketing maverick sort of stuff :p Cash Cow ::popcorn::

    In the movie Top Gun Maverick wore an Orfina Porsche watch. In the trailer of the upcoming sequel that same watch has been spotted. From Monochrome.
    This watch was actually military issued by various air forces, unlike the 3705 or 3706.

    Looks decent, if a little on the thick side. Fauxtina again. 40mm might be OK, don't know what the lug to lug is. Overall I like it, but it's no Carrera.

    Looks great- I wonder if this will be the “new thing” - hand wound watches
