    That's a fun collection. Do you find yourself wearing the older or the newer ones more?

    Mhhhmm I think it's very balanced.

    Most wrist time have the Rainbow Flyback and the A277.

    I would love to wear the Cairelli everyday but then is it not special anymore.

    The goal is to wear every watch with the same wirst time except the NOS and special ones.

    Kind regards,

    Adri

    I bought the watch from an AD who has closed the doors and sold the rest of the wearhouse.

    Hello Jsaen, this type of watch was made around the 1930's by numerous watch manufacturers. Zenith,Omega , Breitling,Helvetia, Rellum and many more. They were popular amongst early pilots after WWI and its mentionned they
    were used by the Luftwaffe pilots in training schools. The Czechoslovakian army issued Zeniths to their pilots during WWII. The mystery is why did all these manufacturers make this type of model. Were they popular in the beginning and every manufacturers wanted to profit from the fad or was it a special order made by a government.
    I have two of the three models made by Zenith. The third one has a subdial.
    As you can see I have some sort of an obsession for this model:

    WOW. I mean WOW.

    :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    You've even put your obsession to music. I agree your collection deserves a theme song.

    That is truly excellent. Welcome to Omega Forums, thanks for joining.

    Not necessarily that old ; serial number on the case back and engraving style would help.

    (PS - I do really love those old 2-register models, and the way the dial turns chocolate-colored)
