    Zenith Victorious cal. 40-T Restoration

    Bought this non-working old Zenith Victorious and spent yesterday evening restoring it


    The watch had the stem broken at the crown, so needed a new stem and a crown.
    Because the seller couldn't wind it it was sold as not working, luckily the movement was just fine :)





    The restoration:






    Great watches, superb build quality! The steel is so hard that it's almost impossible to polish



    I like this watch a lot, it's clean and simple, typical for the time period but quite a timeless design. A bit similar to the Omega Geneve I guess..
    Had to find a new stem, was lucky to get one for $9 on ebay :) Also don't worry about the crown, looking for an original Zenith one and this is just a temporary solution, thats also why the stem is too long for the crown, not sure how much space the original will require so just making sure it has enough

    Congratulations. That is -as you say - clean and simple - and also very classy.
