    Love the Ford Galaxy. It takes me back as dad drove one when I was a kid.

    The watch itself is a little too busy for my taste but I do like the cut out on the dial. Glad Zenith is doing that again.

    If Zenith win this race, the demand for mr Magada limited edition watches will be so high, it will end up in a dogs fight between drivers in Paris, Mr Magada can triple the price, drivers are still willing to pay And will be able to sell all 500 before return back home.

    1. Aldo will probably not win but he is for sure enjoying the days on the roads in France. It’s all about emotions and having a good time… I am pretty sure that Zenith will sell these beautiful chronographs around the world in its retail network. I know that in Vienna there has already been sold one to a non participant of Tour Auto…

    The Zenith looks just like mine except for the dial, strap and pusher detail.
    Great to see all the cars of my youth. I wish I knew the Jag was going to be an icon of the era.
    Great photos as usual, Alexander.
