    After Basel want list

    Is there anything you would add to your want list after seeing the new models?

    For me:

    I haven't seen all that has come out of Basel, but I know there are some very nice GS' coming that look very appealing.

    BTW, not that you asked but since we're buds in the flesh and you know I'm an opinionated dope when it comes to watch aesthetics .... I'm digging the Oris and Blancpain, but not sure of the hands and crown on that Zenith. It must be "extra special".

    Love the blue Spring Drive. I'm sure you will be rocking another GS soon.

    I missed this one, any more info out there. The didn't the previous Zenith with Extra Special on the dial have a Sellita movement?
    Can't see this on the Zenith mobile website. But is doesn't seem to be fully up to date.

    I saw a clip of a guy from Zenith somewhere. Back to Elite movement he said, iirc

    Edit: tried searching instagram but couldn't find it, sorry

    Did find this, from the ever inane A Blog To Watch:

    "Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Bronze
    Zenith really got its entry-level priced pilot watch right this time. Last year’s Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special watch was a great looking time-only version of the Type 20, but Zenith baffled consumers by including a Swiss Sellita automatic movement versus something produced in-house. For 2015, Zenith nails it with the new Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Bronze. The new 45mm-wide bronze metal case with the titanium caseback is excellent looking and wraps the vintage look in a case which feels both refined and a bit steampunk. Inside the Zenith Pilot type 20 Extra Special Bronze is an in-house made Zenith Elite caliber 679 automatic movement which the collection had served in the first place. Available later in 2015, the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Bronze will be priced at US$7,600."

    I can never get over how badly those guys write. It must be some kind of house style?
