What the zenith el primero 410 limited edition replica watch eally gets right for me though is achieving that balance between modern design whilst still retaining that vintage flavour. The dial layout remaining true to the original models of the 1970s although I have to say for me the blue dial version does not necessarily have as retro a vibe as say the silver dial version, not that I’m complaining mind you. After all, on offer is the performance of the world’s most accurate automatic chronograph combined with a triple calendar and moonphase indications, all combined into one easy-to-read package.
Based largely on a popular model from the 1970’s, Zenith first brought the El Primero back to life in 2014 as a limited edition of 500 pieces in steel with a sexy but subdued silver dial. I was quite smitten with the top fake watches at the time but I must admit I found the monochromatic styling a little boring.
Fast-forward a year and it seems the folks at Zenith replica UK had either read my mind or were simply feeling the need for some color in their lives too. So in 2015 the brand introduced a limited edition (1,975 pieces this time) blue dial version of the El Primero 410 with matching blue leather strap at Baselworld , which – as you may have guessed – is the watch you see before you today.
There is a lot to like about this watch, starting with the perfectly sized 42mm case in steel. Not only does it sit nicely on the wrist, it also allows Zenith enough room to display quite a bit of information without making the dial of the El Primero 410 seemed cramped. This is important for me as aesthetically speaking there is nothing worse than a copy watches sale with poor dial design, especially because you are reminded of that fact every time you check the time. Not to mention legibility is kind of important.
Inside is the legendary El Primero 410 replica watch, an automatic column-wheel chronograph that was retired by the brand in 2000. Brought back to life for this new series, the movement is comprised of some 390 components, with the inner workings visible through the sapphire exhibition caseback.
On the wrist the El Primero 410 feels great. It has a good weight to it but the relatively small case size and leather strap mean it is one of those UK replica watches that you can just wear day in day out without any complaints. Admittedly the blue might clash a bit in more conservative office environments and as such is arguably not as versatile as its more subdued siblings. That being said, having had the opportunity to see all three models in the new Zenith Replica watch line-up I have to say that the blue dial version is still definitely my preference.
