    That is gret news! You have a beautiful watch that will run now like a dream & you can place the original tachy ring & hands back on as well.

    That my friend is the best of both worlds. Congratulations.

    Wow, I'm really happy for you....I'd have been distraught losing the original tachy ring and probably couldn't have faced wearing the watch again, so good news indeed!

    I serviced mine directly at the Manufacture and Asked them specifically not to change any original parts or polish the case. Zenith did a beautiful job and only change one broken piece (with they returned).

    Such a beautiful watch! But I agree it would be better with the original hands as well. Still, with a watch like that, it is definitely worth the money for the service. But it does seem, as others have said, it is a tricky business getting satisfactory results.
    I love the vintage watches myself, but have never had the courage as you to go ahead, get one, and keep it serviced. I sincerely hope you get all the issues sorted out.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    never send a vintage watch back to the mother company, the so called restorations are badly done. Sorry to hear about your troubles. I hope you can sort it out. My new Zenith acquisition will go to one of my two favorite independant watchmakers
