A Zenith caliber 10.5" N.V.S.I, Art Deco, chrome plated with a bicoloured face. The case can be opened via a little hinge. The connoisseurs can see this exact watch featured in Rössler (page 167). It is dated early 1930 but I wouldn't be surprised if the watch has an earlier date of birth. The movement with Breguet spring and 15 jewels has been fully overhauled by a skilled watchmaker. This movement was the predecessor of the Cal 106, a reliable handwound mechanism that I used to enjoy on my 1940 Zenith WW2 watch. Of the calibre featured in this picture, approximately 68.400 pieces were made between 1926 and 1937. Also, I really like the small subdial and numerals on this watch. Very delicate. What a watch to still wear today on a gentleman's wrist!
Any other members that own a Zenith from between the 1920-1930 era/ art deco era? Would love to see some more examples !
