    Picture My first Zenith...

    I love it! I love the very simiple deco dial and the very thin bezel. It looks a lot like the Stowa Antea. I also like the large sub seconds. I believe is from the early 40's. I've emailed Zenith so we'll see what they say :)

    40's Zenith cal 12.4

    Congrats!

    Thanks Axel! I have a pic of a Doxa with the same exact dial as the Stowa Antea. I believe it's a late 30's ad. I'll have to find it and scan it for you.

    Would be great!
    In our German Forum, common sense is that a french manufacturer was the first coming up with that design. It would be really helpful to add another source!

    If I remember correctly there were a few other brands with this similar dial design. Let me see if I can find them and scan them later tonight.

    Axel, here's 2 ads I found. The Record has a similar dial as my Zenith but different case. The Doxa looks exactly like the Stowa Antea...
