Why did they have to ruin the original design?

2nd zenithfag here.
They are advertised by the seller generally. As to the difference there is none I don't think. I thought the 38mm models all had it, where as the 42mm didn't.

Let me know where you buy it from I'm scrounging the net every day for one, I just don't want to buy new

Damn I thought you were going to say you were selling one or knew of a good deal.

I'm looking ideally for pic related, without the overlapping subdials. But they seem to be extremely rare 2nd hand, I can only find brand new or completely out of my budget

Why did Zenith decide to mess with perfection?

Also WHAT were they thinking with that overlap that covers the chronograph minute markers? Like how can designers working for a big watch company make such a stupid mistake?

They ruined it. The original was perfect. At least wait till they fix the overlap. They released some special edition that had it the right way (minute subdial in front of hour subdial) so here is hoping they will update the regular version.

Someone please help me understand the design decisions they made for the new version.

So I get it they had to make it more shiny and bigger to fit the modern bad taste. But why oh why did they change the overlap from the perfect legible one to one where part of the minutes are covered? Like how could a designer employed for a big watch maker that makes expensive watches allow that?
