One of the oldest watch manufacturers, Zenith is one of the very few companies which has always produced their own movements.
In the 40’s and through the 50’s Zenith held the lead in producing the most commercially advanced, chronograph wristwatches. Zenith has supplied movements to many other manufacturers including Rolex.
A stunning c1955 Zenith 18ct yellow gold, 15 jewel, 106-6 cal. wristwatch is amongst the most collectable vintage Zenith models.
The watch wears a light silver dial signed “Zenith” with gold colour hands and batons and a subsidiary second hand dial at 6 o’clock.
The case measures 36mm excluding the crown. The watch is powered by calibre 106-6 manual wind movement and it has 15 jewels.
This time piece is in excellent condition and is in excellent working order, a truly remarkable timepiece for the collection.
