1967 Zenith JFK John F. Kennedy Vintage Respirator Mens Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 4492

Since 1865, when Georges Favre-Jacot was first inspired by a dream of building a true watch 'manufacture', Zenith has been crafting exclusive watches made to exceptionally exacting standards. Having won over 1500 awards, the company enjoys a long, prestigious history and today enjoys a growing popularity among collectors.

Today's offering features a very classic Zenith so-called Kennedy watch, so named because John F. Kennedy allegedly owned one. In our opinion it makes the short list of best looking square vintage watches.

This is one of the true "Kennedy" versions. It has a simple, pleasing, and balanced design with a clean dial.

The Respirator used an usual waterproof case design in which the movement is housed within an impermeable container and the crystal is designed to seal from the top with a gasket.

Powering the watch is a Zenith caliber 2532C handwound movement. Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the watch.

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