Hi all
could you tell me the service intervals for this non standard El Primero movement?
I am close to buying one and have the service specialist full service costs in Switzerland at Zenith - but dont know the frequency. Obviously depends on how often its worn, but Rolex/Omega offer long service intervals of 5yrs - but I thinking this hi beat would require far more regular TLC

If you don't engage the chronograph, the wear & tear on the flyback and/or striking tenth mechanisms should be zero and on the overall movement therefore no greater between those two EP versions or indeed any other automatic 5Hz movement. I.e. just don't use the chronograph nonstop and service it at the normal regular intervals.

Thanks - that's what I figured - only problem is, the beauty of this is watching that seconds hand fly round in 10seconds - quite extraordinary - takes a lot to impress someone who's had so many watches - wizzzzzzzzzz - beautiful mechanical thing
