    What a great story and a labour of love which was acknowledged generously by Zenith. But most of all through the gift Zenith gave you was an investment in perpetuating the heritage of the brand and encouraging young afficionados like yourself. Well done!.

    Fantastic story Mick! Stories like yours inspires me to sink my teeth into watchmaking and assures me that I can achieve success even without a formal education at a watchmaking school.

    As some other Zenith owners already have pointed out, this young man's experience has given us a deeper appreciation of our own Zenith watches. And might we all be witnessing the next Roger Smith or Philippe Dufour? Mick, I hope we all one day can say, "I knew him when...."

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.

    I am so touched by your upstanding character, Mr Dufour's commitment to what would appear to be something he would be too busy to attend to....BUT DID IT ANYWAY. Man, what a story. OUTSTANDING!!!!
