FS: Very rare steppedZenith issued w. 1940 Calatrava s. price re

I'm selling this beautiful calatrava style Zenith watch from my personal collection. This piece was made in 1940s and as you can see from the pictures it is in a very good condition. The dial, the case, the movement, everything is absolutely original and well preserved. I would put the condition of this watch as very good, almost mint, but it has some minor scratches on the left side of the case, which means that this piece was probably never polished, but since I ´ve held vintage timepieces before, I´m sure that it never was. The watch is 3x signed as it should for a high quality piece like this one, and it is running. But, I have to say that it is a deadbeat, sometimes it will run for hours, sometimes it will need a shake and sometimes it wont run at all, that is why I strongly recommend some service( if you decide to purchase this piece from me, than the service will be free of charge ) The watch measures around '31 mm with the crown 32 mm and yes, it is a mans watch, this size was typical for the era. The piece comes on the leather 18 mm strap, I would advise to buy a 17 mm (if you can find it somewhere) , but I think that the current strap is just fine, It is a high quality leather strap made in Germany after all, so changing the strap is not necessary. The markings on the lower side of the case are indicating that this watch was issued to some officer or a government worker since it is not serial number of the case. ( the SN of the case is engraved in the back lid as you can see on the pictures) I have seen and owned some very similar designes from longines, the so called "tre tacche " ( collectors will be familiar with that model) and that is where I´m coming from. They all had 4 digit numbers engraved on the back.My price is 300 EUR
