    I don't know if you have seen this, but I thought I should post it here: Zenith CEO Jean-Frédéric Dufour Imparts A Little Generosity On A Young Watchmaker, We Pay.Attention - Blog - Hodinkee. Way to go, Mick!

    GREAT story! Makes my decision to add a Zenith to my collection even better to see a company with not only a technically great movement, but with customer service like that.

    Mick, I hope replies to your wonderful post go on for another ten pages!

    My son is just a year younger than you and I can not imagine him having this kind of patience and dedication!

    Beautiful story, beautiful watch. The watch now has a fantastic owner who now has a fantastic story about it.

    At the end of the day, most watches are just small machines. This one is special, though. Now it has a soul.

    Thank you for sharing this with us.

    Congratulations!!! I admire your skills and passion for watches!

    You should never part with that watch, except pass it and your story along to your son one day.

    I', also glad Zenith is no longer in the hands of Thierry Nataf who almost destroyed the brand IMHO by appealing to fashion trends and those who are slaves to it instead of sticking with the heritage of the brand.

    Kudos to you & Mr. DuFour who should look to hire you once you complete your studies.
