As i was asked already many times on ebay about the history of that watch i would like to add:

The Watch is from family estate. As i know Zenith produced these with 3 different casebacks incl. the one with the star, which was on later productions. this one which is flat / plain is earlier and original too.

The watch went for a Revision / Service to Zenith factory about 15 years ago, around 2000/2002.
As the lume on the Hands was partly broken and on the dial too zenith replaced these parts with Service Hands and dial but without sending the old parts back. But as i know older Hands and dials from the year 1969 are still offered from time to time, also here on ebay. The watch is in perfect running condition and also rarely worn in the last decades.

Because of that circustances (Service Dial and Hands) i decided to lower the buy it now Price now to 9,5 k euro.

i am not forced to sell this timepiece immediately, but as i wrote in the ebay add i am also open for reasonable Price offers and a Discount for OTD members.

me and watch are located in Germany,

Kind Regards, Thomas
