Zenith makes nice watches. I imagine the "café racer" version is in the $3,000-$4,000 range.

These are my two I wear the most.



Have an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, few more Tissot's, the limited edition MotoGP versions, few Breitlings, one Tag, a Monaco I scored on CL for $800, and one Rolex I bought from a little old lady on Craigslist. Someone decided it was a good idea to hand me a six figure check, just to sign the dotted line when I was 19, so, I got in to watch collecting. I used to have a safety deposit box full of them, but I've liquidated most of them over the last few years.

The Zenith is a chronograph, that is, it has a built in 'stop watch', its rrp is 7100 usd. I have a few decent watches, including 2 Zenith chronographs which share the same El Primero movement as the one pictured, this is one I'm wearing today..

nope, this is the one you want...

I did indeed buy one (pretending to forget my skin allergy to all metals) and the metal backing ate a large piece of skin off the back of my wrist and the batteries lasted about a week, cool toy though

there are flasher versions available on the bay of E but I doubt they're any better
short fast loud, three things punk rock and vmaxs have in common

Not a fan of Rolex. I am quite partial to TAG and love omega. But my tiny little bitch ass wrists don't work well with the giant omega watches. Also, I can't afford them, so there's that.

Tough to beat a Daytona.

If you have one of the rare ones with a Zenith movement in it, they are now worth a fortune.

Shouldn't a cafe racer watch have a lap timer?  Stopwatch function minimum.  I dig watches but I gather you guys know more about them than I do.
The, what you would normally refer to as the second hand, is the chronometer. The second hand is the small dial to the left.

Ah, didn't catch that.  Cool.    I wear an 80$ Pulsar so I'm not really one to talk high end watches.  I have a thing for TAG's and an Omega or two though.  I didn't know about the Zenith and the one Bevel posted is beautiful.
