Not vintage - but old - my new daytona 16520 black dial

All my watches are simple watches - the most special is the possibility to tell the date, and in in some cases also a GMT/24 hour function.

But now my plan is to get a chronograph - I have been on the look out for a Omega Speedmaster cal. 321 - but as long as I can remember the rolex daytona have always has a speciel place in my heart.

Nobody can be in doubt when it comes to the talk on the Rolex Daytona - It is probally the watch model from rolex with most "faces" over the years. But when I can't have a real vintage daytona with panda dial / PN I will as always end with a black dial.

The question then came - which daytona to get - there are pro and cons for each model.
The newest model with the new clasp, newer hairspring, inhouse movement,etc.. or the older version (not that old) the daytona with zeinth movement (non inhouse movement)...

Well I have selected the zenith model - why?

Movement - No - I think the new movement is "better" - but the Zenith movement has a good history
The Oyster Braclet - No - The new is many times better (claps, etc)..
Box and papers - No - Nice to have but not a deal breaker for me.
History - Yes - the zenith model has some
Look - Maybe - Don't like the rolexrolexrolex on inside - like the old look and placement of sundials better,...
T-dial - YES - YES

Some quick and dirty photos of my T-series 16520 zenith daytona



I know it is not real vintage - but it is not the newest model either wink.gif
