    Yes, it's the AH 3639. GF bracelet is dated 3/68 and Zenith confirmed the watch is from October 1968.

    Super. Another little nugget of knowledge....

    Yep, legit, but one end-link is - how to the Germans say it? - upgefuckt. I had a correspondence with the seller establishing that a while ago when we did a bulk deal for all of his decent Zenith GF bracelets...:whistling:

    Here are the ZO end links of the A792. Sorry, the Razr Maxx HD's camera is horrible:

    David, I would just for the sake of completeness, even though I think we decided they are the same as ZKMs.

    Question for the cognoscenti: I have a bracelet with ZR ends that measure 24mm...what would this fit? The bracelet is the solid linked variety, typical of the Espada and 381/2 refs..
    grazie in advance

    AKA the lobster bracelet

    What is it with you and the freaky-deaky endpieces? First the ZK, and now Double-Wide ZRs. The ZR goes with the Ned Kelly cased Primeros and Defys, but at 22mm.
    Are you measuring the endpiece itself or the last plate of the bracelet?
