I would love to own both but for now I can only afford one. The Zenith is probably the more desirable watch but the Omega enjoys that unique history. Thoughts/Opinions are greatly appreciated but I feel it might come down to a coin toss :-d

Zenith for me - date function, smoother second hand, choice of sizes (38mm for me), more interesting and colourful dial

Of the two, the zenith for me. High beat and with date.

Zenith is a better watch albeit less versatile

Zenith. But to be honest, I would go 38mm instead of 42.

Another vote for the zenith. Also, it's an automatic column chronograph movement with date and higher beat.

Zenith gets my vote here. You can always buy the Speedy later, the zenith may/may not be available in a few years.

I'm a fan of the Speedy but in this case I'll go with Zenith. There's just something so special about the El Primero, to me anyway. But I'll look for the 38mm version. The 42mm Zenith wears big so try it out first before you buy. If I were to buy a Speedy Pro, I'll buy the hesalite crystal 3570 at a lower price.

If you go Speedy give serious consideration to the hesalite. I was dead-set on the sapphire sandwich until I viewed in person - where suddenly I "got" the hesalite. It is not uncommon.

I really appreciate every ones opinions/thoughts and I think I might be getting swayed towards the Zenith.

That's one of my favorite Zeniths. I've tried on the speedy a couple times and really wanted to like it, but it just didn't sing to me. So Zenith for me!
