It’s not news to anyone who regularly reads HODINKEE that my taste skews toward smaller watches. However, for something like this, a 38mm case just wouldn’t make any historical sense, and Zenith does a great job making the 43mm case comfortable and low-profile here. As far as color goes, I enjoyed both the aged steel and bronze versions, and I think it’s purely a matter of taste here. Also, the lack of date window kind of makes this watch for me. Zenith could have given into temptation to add a date with this more commercially focused version of the CP-2, but they didn’t, and I think they deserve credit for sticking to the proper design.
