    Here's my entry: Ref. 01 0010 500, powered by an ESA 9162 tuning fork movement (Zenith calls it 50.0). Some design elements are clearly taken from Zenith's Surf/Defy line: the back states surf and the bracelet is very similar to defy divers. Though, this very piece seems more rare - or let's just say it's an oddball in Zenith's 1970s line up. Very elegant and massive watch though, and if I am not mistaken an integrated bracelet design that came out long before the Nautilus and perhaps even a tad before the Royal Oak .. Anyways, if anyone knows more about this watch, perhaps years of production and such, please let me know. I can't seem to find any vintage catalogue from around 1970.

    Just arrived. Not running well so it’s off to my watchmaker. But man it’s nice! Thanks to @Tony C. for helping me vet this.

    It's the first time I see the caseback serial engraved also on the case of a Zenith

    Is the case chrome-plated?

    As you can read on the caseback it's all stainless steel.

    Until now I "only" have two Zenith watches in my small collection, an very early chronograph from 1930´s and late Defy diver from the beginning of the 1970´s.
    Very satisfied with this two pieces collection...
    But I would like to add some more Zenith chronos & watches in the future, so beautiful movements, dials and cases.

    1. gen. Zenith Compur from 1935, 38mm stepped staybrite steel case with two olive pushers and modified Valjoux 22gh movement.
    All original blued hands & beautiful early dial with outer blue Telemeter track (only crown is later replacement).

    1970´s Zenith Defy with beautiful red dial and big screwdown crown.

    I "forgot" my third 1920-30 one pusher chronograph with beautiful dial , but this one will leave my collection and is for sale here on the marketplace.
