Advice/ Information on 1978 Zenith El P. Please.

Hi Guy's,
I was wondering if I could possibly pick your collective brain's!
I am thinking about a slight departure from the usual Heuer theme. I have always liked the design of the 1978 Zenith (Movado too), El Primero Chrono. -I am sure you know the one, BIG and Square.
All I know is that they are usually found with a blue dial, and that around 50 had Black dial's.
-That is it!! (Not really a lot to go on!)
So, before I go hunting for one, I would love some more information if anyone can help?
Does anyone know how good the movement is?
What they are like to live with?
Parts avalibility?
History of the model?
The Values?
-Really anything and everything about the model!
I have had a Speedie 125 in the past, is the Zenith's size comparable?
I would be very grateful for any information/ owners view's.
Thank you all, yet again!
Best Wishes,

Current Position
