Hello everyone, just found the site trying to find out more information on this watch i have acquired. Could anyone take a look at these horrible pictures and tell me anything about this watch. You cant see it in the picture but the face has Zenith just under 12. Of course the inner case has Swiss made on it with some numbers (9577020) that do not match the serial number on the movement (5188090) there is also another number located on one of the cover plates ( 177-6 ) not sure if that helps or not. I found the watch in Adana, Turkey and wanted to know if this watch is real or just a good fake. Seems like a lot of the items here in Turkey are re-made or copies of original companies. The watch keeps time to the minute so far, the case is in decent condition ( I think ) All the inner workings are in great shape! The crystal has small scratches (nothing impeding your view) Only problem I see with it is the winding stem has had a repair done to it, and the dial itself looks like there could of been water dmg to it.
I am sorry the pictures are so bad. not sure what is wrong with the camera (normally takes good pictures) If the pictures are a problem let me know and i will try and get better ones for you.
If you could give me the est. year it was made, and let me know if the $200.00 us dollars I spent on it was worth it. I like it but I hope it isnt a fake or copy.
Also has anyone ever heard of Helbros? Just received a Helbros watch from a friend to "expand" my new hobby.
