What’s On Offer 

Who doesn't need a beautiful Zenith in their watch collection? This vintage piece is absolutely charming and the tropical dial is the jewel in its crown. The beauty of the dial lies in its simplicity, Arabic numerals give it a slight military feel and the blued steel hands offer a point of interest. At 35mm, this is a mid-size watch but does wear larger on the wrist because of the stark design of the dial and the super slim bezel - it would also be thought of as a jumbo at the time of production. The dial features an outer minute track and is completed by a simple Zenith signature, the beautiful tropicalisation gives the dial a nice warmth. The case is chrome-topped, you can see some wear to the mid-case where the metal beneath is peeping through, however, this only adds to the vintage charm of this watch. This is a charismatic watch from a prestigious brand with a formidable reputation in horology, you cannot go wrong with a Zenith! This watch is competitively priced and would make a perfect entry into the world of vintage watch collecting!
