    There have been slim pickings in vintage Zenith land recently - other than eBay auctions with the famous "wankers reserves", so the Count of New York graciously allowed me to buy his spare A277:

    That's quite an unusual dial, it's not got sides like my pie pan, but it looks similar..

    Here's mine without the smooth edges:

    New arrival. Unfortunately I don't have a proper bracelet resizing tool, so will have to wait for a visit to the watchmaker on Wednesday. Fortunately there are lug holes, so switching to a 20mm strap is a breeze.

    First impressions: I like it...solid, nice finish and build quality, great domed mineral glass crystal (not terribly reflective), nice wrist presence without being outlandish on my 6.75" wrist (it's 38mm across ex-crown), retro-inspired design. Interesting feature for this movement is that it whirs similarly to a Rolex bubbleback when rocked back and forth. I'm not sure if that was intentional on Orient's part!

    Another of my "Swiss Budget" catches.
