    This looks like a nice example of the Pilot Subsea. The only thing that catches my eye is the replacement rotor, which the seller mentions as the only part replaced during a service. The subdial hands and the bezel might also be service replacements...

    The price isn't crazy, but maybe a few hundred above auction value.

    Thanks for bringing this up. I looked closely at this watch and wanted to ask the same question. I love these watches and don't understand why they are not more popular.

    All the parts are all original zenith, but some are much much later the watch has been installed with a much later 400/400z movement and as it has been made to deceive you by installing a 3019 phc bridge on a 400/400z movement the watch is a franken .
