    Surely an original. Looks like a ladies model although that will depend on the size.

    Re: Help Identify Zenith

    I've gathered a bit more information to help solve the mistery.

    Diameter: 36 mm (excluding crown), 39 mm lug to lug
    Thickness: 6.3 mm
    Casing serial no. : 01 066 0 17 2

    so definitely not a ladies model

    and a couple more picture

    thanks for your help

    The "case serial number" is actually the reference number which should read: 01.0660.172. The 01 shows that it is a steel model, the 0660 is the reference and the 172 denotes the calibre which is Zenith's internál designation for the Peseux 7001 minus seconds indication. That makes the watch from the late seventies or early eighties.

    Thank you Hartmut for the valuable insight!

    from what I've learned, the ETA/Peseux 7001 is a very sturdy movement, used all across the industry.

    Bagged the watch for 300€, very happy with the deal.

    again, thank you very much!

    Congrats on your Zenith. I can add that I found the model in the 1975 catalog. Wear it in good health.

    thanks.

    The crown doesn't look original, not a big issue for me.

    will try to source a period correct buckle, I'm looking at options
