    Vintage Zenith Authentic?

    Hey guys,

    Saw this Zenith on eBay it's a good looking watch. Almost seems too good to be true. I'm no expert, but the dial looks immaculate maybe a redial? I'll posted the web number since I can't post the URL. 283274371776

    Thanks again,

    Common pre-owned gold-plated Zenith with ETA movement. They are all over the internet at half the price.

    Say my limit was 1000 could I get a much nicer example that has an in-house movement? Not a fan of gold plating either prefer stainless. Been looking on eBay and forums not seeing too many idk if its just me.

    Thanks,

    Objection, your honor. The plaintiff's statement is not supported by any proof. On the contrary, I personally checked, and the OP's watch may be the best offer (for its price) on the whole internet.

    Well, to be honest, I didn't check for that particular model and maybe my statement was a slight exaggeration. I did a general search for auto-winding gold-plated Zeniths from that era, and I found several in the $200 range.

    My real point, which I should have emphasized better, is that it's not a particularly desirable watch. Fortunately, the OP seemed to get it.

    Thanks,

    Absolutely, you can. I haven't looked closely at these yet, so there could easily be some issues that disqualify them. My purpose was just to show that if you use search eBay, watchrecon, etsy, reddit, etc., you will find many of them. I'm not sure why you are not finding them. There are many more on eBay, I just pulled a couple from various places.

    Objection, your honor. 'Maybe a slight exaggeration' is still a gross understatement.

    Show us at least five Zenith automatics for gentlemen at half that price or apologise as you should with a complete and utter retraction.

    I retract my assertion and humbly beg for the forum's forgiveness.
