    Default Incoming Zenith Special Pilot watch

    I guess you can call this a military watch. I got this incoming a Zenith Special made during the 1930's I know civilian and military pilots used them in Europe. I got a fair price for it got it from a watch collector in the Czech Republic had to use google translator and bank wire a lot of work to get a cool watch. I all ways looked at this collector site for years he all ways have a few for sell but most not for sell. And the bank wire transfer all ways stopped me but I know another member at another forum that bought from him so figure it was a safe deal. Should get it in a week or two depending on how long US custom hold on to it. Probably the last watch of the year. Will post more about it and photo's when I get it. The link below some info I found out about this model Zenith. And a photo of the watch I am getting a little dial damage at the eleven but it's a porcelain dial and a 87 year old watch. And the case size 41mm not a bad size.

    The Breitling version can be expensive the collector I got mine had those to not sure he had any of his for sell. Was looking at ebay at Helvetia that also needed TLC like you I don't have the time but I don't have a capabilities to do it ether. This one all most look mint mite need a movement service.

    Well received it today. Probably the last great deal the way vintage watches we really like that got the wow factor are going price wise they don't come around as often as they use to for a fair price. I really like this watch. Just sent off for a archive letter from Zenith. Weird they wanted a photo for it tried a great photo to many PIXI so took a crappy photo with the phone they will not be able to make heads or tails out of it. Maybe they will email and ask for a better one.
