    I think the watch was a ZentRa from the beginning, only someone had the unfortunate idea to redial it and put the Zenith name on the repainted dial.

    So we can assume that it was a nice Zentra, but it's owner must have really wanted to have 'Zenith' and decided to make it on his own... So it is a watch with a story, right? 😉

    Hi there,

    you need not be a Zenith expert; the empty dial-foot holes in the movement and the out of center second hand are sufficient for certain doubts.
