    Wow yours is a NOS? I'm still considering changing the dial. Mine is a full set, complete with strap, buckle, box and warranty card. That's why I'm considering changing the dial.

    Yeah initially I thought of changing becoz the top left water damage was a little distracting for me but after wearing it, it just look amazingly beautiful.

    Thanks @Kmart and @seedo ! They seems to be rather rare as well, as it took me over a half year to find a nice one.

    No, it has signs of wear, I'd call it mint...

    I was a real n00b when I bought it 2+ years ago; my first 18k vintage, and got lucky on eBay.

    I knew almost nothing about condition vs. value. I wasn't looking for mint at the time, just wanted an 18k Zenith...

    Sorry for this kind of double post (1st showed up in the "what did you buy" thread): my new blue Defy A3651. Looked quite nice, but when I removed the bezel, a kind of gasket slime flew over the top side of the watch. What a mess...really the most disgusting substance I get to know.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The original mineral glass was mounted (now it wobbles because of the vanished gasket) - think I will let it polish (by an optician?) to give it a nicer look without scratches. Interestingly the bezel is wider (and the glass smaller) than on my other Defy - and brushed. 2562 inside but no high beat/28800 marking on the dial.

    rgds - h.u.

    Here is a odd one a Zenith chronometer made during WW2 by vale watch co using a Zenith car clock. You can see a scratched out jewel count on the movement because it was up jewel for the wind indicator and for better time keeping Waltham also had a similar model during WW2 the US Navy and the US merchant marine needed these in a hurry for Navigation. Funny to see SWISS and USA on the same movement.. Got this years ago at a NAWCC mart and it amazes me how sellers on fleabay jacked the prices on these like it's a ton of gold I got this cheap the price they should go for. All ways wondered if this was a team effort by Zenith and Vale watch co in the USA.
