Hi everyone,

I'm looking at buying my first zenith, I've narrowed the search down to the captain chronograph, silver or brown dial. I'd like opinions on the two dials, and if any members own the watches, please share some photos!

I've used my google skills to find some real life photos, which I shamelessly stole:

I think I'd go for the brown dial too. It's a little more distinctive. The only negative point is that in that version, the colour of the date function doesn't match (maybe Zenith ought to pay better attention to detail in things like that). Legibility is about equal in both and there seems to be no advantage of the silver one over its brown counterpart.

I'd go with the silver dial. You can play around with multiple strap options and the dial is neutral enough to dress up or down

Thanks guys, much appreciated. I actually hadn't noticed that the date wheel doesn't match the dial on the brown version, now I can't un-see it!
