    This Zenith UFO just landed, after a lengthy layover in Milan. I bought this one thinking the dial was going to be quite blue; I think the seller lightened it up quite a bit in the post-processing:

    The true color is much more like my photo - a midnight blue lacquered finish, with the blue evident only under bright light... more black under most lighting conditions. Much nicer than the seller's photo, IMO. The dial is quite nice for a blue-dialed Zenith, as they are notoriously susceptible to age spots... only a couple of tiny blemishes. And a good size at 40mm. It will make a fine companion for the Spacemen: :)

    Kind of a chunky biconvex disk, 11.4 mm thick. Flat mineral crystal. More photos:
