On the wooden beam: Zenith Captain Chronometer

Another wooden beam post, another Zenith Captain Chronometer… But this time not a classic looking one!

Another of these Funky 70’s looking watches which in fact originates from the late 1960’s.

With a bit of UFO like case shape, this Captain Chronometer is not one of the most elegant, but for sure a very cool watch!

According to the ad, the reference is ZI 8511 but not sure. Not even in Rössler’s big Zenith book there is a reference stated for this watch…

One thing I do know is that there were several different versions of this Captain Chronometer.
