Here are some of my watches back to sell. I have not been really active with my last adds but some change would be good so here these are...
First, the vintage zenith subsea A3736 gray dial.
This watch remained almost 50 years in the same family. It had been offered to a French butcher in Le Havre (north of France) for his 40th birthday in 1968.
His wife bought it in the local zenith AD named Lepage which still exist today. After the father's death, the son got it, but it mainly remained in a drawer.
Unfortunately there is no box or paper...
The watch has been saved into it's original vintage condition. Unpolished case and back, clean dial, nice pink lolly pop, bezel turning well, and glass in pristine condition. Everything is original except the winding crown which has been changed year's ago. For those who want to know, the loss of the original winding crown occurs during a fight in bar!!
Finally the 146 Hp caliber which is working perfectly well, with hands setting perfectly to zero. The last service is unknown.
The second is a Heuer 2446 GMT, 2nd execution with round pushers and a white central hand.
The watch must have been restored before I got it as the case is slightly polished, but still shows angles, and the hands are relumed. The bezel turns well, numbers are still visible, and it tooks a nice pink patina on the down part. The case back still shows it's writings (it's protected with scotch but i will took it off) and the crown is signed as well. The watch has been serviced less than a year ago. The valjoux 72 runs strongly and the Chrono set to zero. I would only point the fact that you have to push the button hard enough to make it happens as sometimes you have to push it twice if badly done. But it always set to zero. Old lady...
Last but not the least, is my zenith s58 gray dial. This beauty comes in a really good shape with a nice patina, a Bakelite bezel mostly untouched, a signed crown, a sharp unpolished case and a 2542 caliber which runs strongly. I will sell it on a cool leather band almost matching the lume patina :)
Hearing strong offers for these 3. I Would accept partial trade or maybe multiple if someone is willing to let a nice Daytona 16520 leave :)
Off course, I can provide references if needed ;)
Thanks Jeff & OTD!
