1960's Zenith Vintage Mens Waterproof Style Watch with Date - 18K Rose Gold


Item No. VR7

Today's offering showcases this very handsome and classic Zenith 18K rose gold mens watch with date. Its interesting construction and very fine aesthetic make it stand out from other high-grade vintage pieces.

It is all-original down to the signed Zenith crown and in gorgeous original condition.

It measures 34mm in diameter without the crown, the same diameter as a Rolex Date model, and its large dial gives it a larger presence on the wrist.

Its one-piece case for water-resistance is factory engraved on the back with a picture of two seals and the words Seals Twice.

It has never been polished and and retains wonderfully strong lines and facets. Its untouched original silver dial, which is strongly concave, keeps with Zeniths design modality for the era with a date between four and five and is in mint condition.

It's a very pleasing example of a fine and distinctive dress watch that would make an excellent addition to a fine collection. It is part of the discerning collection that we are selling for a renowned pediatrician.

Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $445 value).

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
