OK, since I have started to share some of my Zenith watches, let’s continue…
As you know, I have a soft spot for Chronometers and Zenith have some really nice once!
Here is the Zenith Captain reference 12244 Chronometer. This one just returned from my watchmaker after a well needed cleaning.
The Champagne dial on this one is magic, will take some photos in natural light and show you.
Based on the movement number, my watch is from 1964-1965. Notice the hands which are quite similar to the Zenith Favre-Leuba Chronometer Calibre 135, while the scan show a version with more classic Dauphine hands.
Back in 1964 the 12244 was 180.000 Italian Lire in gold and 63.000 Lire in stainless steel.
Yes, Zenith had many beautiful Chronometers – I will return with more, so stay tuned!
