  1. Original Zenith wrist watch, 1917, chrome-plated case, cal. 12'' N.V.S.I.
  2. Rare Georges Favre-Jacot (Zenith) men's wrist watch for the Russian market; Made in July 1917, shortly before the Russian Communist revolution - it's one of the last watches of the Zenith manufacture for the Russian Empire. Caliber 15'''-36; Case diameter 39 mm; Enamelled dial. The same model was described in the Manfred Rösler's book, p.162.
  3. Zenith pocket watch for the Polish army, made by Zenith's subsidiary in Besançon (France) just before WW2, cal. 18-28-3-P. ('M.S.Wojsk' means 'Ministry of Military Affairs' of Poland)
  4. Zenith DH wrist watches for the German army in WW2. At the beginning of WW2 Zenith made DH wrist watches in stainless steel cases. But at the end of WW2 Zenith used less expensive chrome-plated cases.
  5. Vintage Russian SVET watch, mid-1970s, cal 2609
  6. Vintage Poljot in a gold case, 1977, cal 2616 1H
  7. I've bought several watches during the lockdown. All are wintage. Some of them: Rare Georges Favre-Jacot (Zenith) original wrist watch from 1917, made during WW1 for the Russian market just before Russian Commuinst revilution. Early Zenith in-house chronograph CH-1 with full scale Tachimeter. And so on.
  8. Very accurate vintage Zenith, 1947, cal 106-50-6, case diameter 31.5 mm, stainless steel,
  9. Hundred Years Between - Early Zenith pocket chronograph from the 1910s, cal 19''' CH-1 - Zenith Captain Winsor Annual Calendar chronograph from the 2010s, cal El Primero 4054
  10. Wow, nice collection! Congratulation! I also very like Zenith watches and have 14 wristwatches and about 50 pocket watches from Zenith/G.F.J.
  11. March 31st, Tuesday: Coronavirus quarantine and damn snowfall
  12. Vintage Girard-Perregaux, 1940s (March 15th - it's snowy again...)
  13. Today with Zenith pocket chronograph, circa 1919, cal CH-1
  14. Unforgettable style of the 1970s. Technos Cougar V, cal ETA 2789.
  15. And LIP. I don't think that Zenith has lost its way.
  16. Zenith Captain Winsor Annual Calendar displays incorrect February 30th. The only drawback of an Annual Calendar watch is that it cannot calculate the number of days in February. On March 1st the watch must be corrected manually.
  17. Vintage Zenith, ca 1957, cal 40, 18K gold case
  18. I doubt it. Amplitude 180° is too low. It could affect accuracy in other positions.
  19. I think some ads for different brands were made by the same persons For example: Omega Zenith
  20. I used warm soapy water and a small piece of cotton wool.
  21. Patina is just dirt in many cases. My Zenith alarm table clock (made in ca 1930) before and after cleaning
