    Hello

    Thinking of buying a Zenith Revival A386 in white Gold. Managed to source one.

    I plan to wear this as a daily but always nice to know if in future it will likely rise in price. Don't plan to sell but nice to know.

    Also out of the precious metals would one be more desirable than the others. Reason for white gold was I already have a gold Speedy. Think the dealer also mentioned might be able to source a yellow gold one.

    Thank you

    The WG is the best choice out of the 3 that are available IMHO, whether or not it will rise in price I would have jumped on one of these knowing it comes with 50 year warranty and service costs included.

    I got my hands on a FWC edition recently which makes me happy now.

    I Find myself attracted to the 50yr warranty, though understanding the warranty term can more accurately be understood as: the earlier of 50yrs or the dissolution of the company

    For me the glass is always half full.

    In general precious metal models of all brands seem to take the biggest hit off retail. Hard to say if it’ll be worth more than what you paid in the future but if your intent is to wear it and enjoy it then don’t worry about it. It’s a great looking watch and my preference would probably be WG as well

    I have to agree with this post here, Zenith watches especially almost always take a large hit off of retail and precious metal especially, don't buy it if money is your main concern, buy it if you really love it and want to keep it forever.

    Looks great! How does it wear? Considering the manufacturer edition but just worried about size with my 18.5cm wrist.

    It's perfect for my 17 cm wrist, lug2lug is 46mm so compared to my speedy which has a 42mm dial not significantly smaller at 47.5mm.

    If you have a chance, I’d be curious to see it on your wrist next to your speedy...

    I'd like to see them side by side too if possible. I have a speedy as well so it would be a great reference point. Would hate to order and have Zenith ship it to me only to find out it wears too small for my liking.

    The oversized subdials definitely help it look larger than 38mm as well as the wider and flatter lugs. Ordering the manufacturer edition shortly.

    Agreed. Like that the watch is all dial as well.
