    Vintage Zenith again

    Dear All,

    I did it again and got my Zenith n°04 ..
    Actually, this was a purchase of a watch that the seller quoted « for parts »
    Here it is as I received it :

    A bit scaring but even though parts are missing and corrosion is present, I felt it was worth a try .. so I bought it !

    Some watchmaker work later (I am just capable of cleaning the case and bracelet, and it was very very dirty!), it looks like this:

    Complete overhaul, replacement of parts, tuning .. and it works very nicely, very accuratetely and it does not look ugly at all !

    It looks even better on a leather strap !

    The watch bears the following n° : movement is 2572 + n°20-1670-370 on the back.
    I believe it must be from the 70’ties.
    Only the bezel is gold filled, the rest is gold color (fading away), so it seems.

    I now have a Zenith dating from each decade : ’50, ’60, ’70 and ’80 (my EP) !

    Yes, indeed ! the hunt then the receipt of the item, then the observation and the action to get it back in shape .. when all done, there is satisfaction but also a look in the direction of the following ..!
