A new addition to the collection.
Zenith Captain cal 133.8, I believe from around 1958. Comes in Huguenin Frčres case- one of the most beautiful watchcases I have encountered with the long slim lugs.
Cal 133.8 was one the first automatic movements and amongst the first with a central sweeping second hand. A so-called hammer movement. Cal 71 has a date function (only 14.000 were produced). The caliber 133.8 was designed by Ephrem Jobin - the constructor of the famous cal. 135. Around 77.000 pieces of cal 133.8 were produced between 1951 and 1958. Comes with the original crown.
