    Not really. There’s also cal 133. Same but 133.8 is 21,600 bph as opposed to 18,000

    Nice watch. I can see what it is that makes me more vulnerable than most to being fooled by redials.
    This pristine look in a vintage watch really appeals to me.......

    Hard to find examples like that. Find one you like. You can always go up. Prices can be all over so if you find one post first and get some opinions

    Is it an insult to an established OF member to post first and get some opinions? I would be reluctant to do that.

    Maybe I didn’t say that right. I meant post a pic and link to the one you’re interested in and get opinions on the condition, price. Here’s my cal 71. Same as the 133.8 but with date. You’ll also see those cal series with Captain on the dial

    After a while you get to know who are specialists in each brand or type of watch.

    A friendly PM to said member will usually get a honest answer. I have used several gurus over the years ;)

    It's official - I am a newly minted Zenith convert!
    Any links to additional sources of Zenith info other than OF are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Ahhhhh, I see.
    Thanks again.
    I am basically a sponge, soaking up what knowledge I can.
    This Forum has been great.
